I strongly mention all the components in my methodology and why it has been successful do me. A blueprint to my philosophy and success.. What strategies are effective and the things that have been discarded. There are stories of some of my students and what they have said to me in regard to the training and their feelings towards me.  I have featured my approach to connecting and being effective using patience, compassion, intuition, spontaneous creativity and my ability to be sensitive to the mood of the students at al times. I have given much credit to my years of intense Martial Arts training to keep me centered, calm and and accurately understand all the array of personalities in my classes and one on one.
