 RE: Lesson teachers

I have had only one person as a personal tutor. I started as an adult novice, knowing a lot of what to do wrong and getting very few things right the first time. My tutor gradually steered me away from the technically incorrect to the correct, but he was so subtle that I didn't realize that he had turned most of my bad habits off by about 6 months or so. He had been giving private lessons to youngsters and adults alike for decades and it showed.

Here is an extreme example of how good a teacher he is. He was a Marine at Guadalcanal in WWII ("The Thin Red Line" movie should give you a hint that this wasn't just another walk in the park). Yet, he teaches Japanese students who don't understand English with as much gentleness and smoothness as everyone else, even though he doesn't understand Japanese. That's what I call a very flexible and forgiving instructor.

Also, keep in mind that it's your money that you are using to pay for a service. If you are not getting the service to your satisfaction, take your money somewhere else.
