"I really love to teach in a way that my students make the most of their lessons and learn new things every time. The most important thing to me is they gain more confidence in riding every lesson. I really enjoy making a connection with my students. As an instructor I will always support my students and want my students to know that because they are in the process of learning, it is absolutely ok to make mistakes."
