I worked at a school with kids with disabilities for 10 years and loved it.. however I decided to make a change when all my favourite students went to high school. There were many other changes happening and training as a driving instructor seemed like a natural progression. I became licenced in 2012. Learners often comment that I am kind, patient and friendly. I try to use humour when I can, as it can relieve a tense situation and its good to learn to laugh at yourself. I am a firm believer in making mistakes as they are necessary to learn, as long as you learn from the mistake. During my lessons I will provide reasons and explanations as to certain manoeuvres, why they are a good or bad decision. If I can provide you with a visual image of the problem, I will as this helps immensely. Generally speaking, once learners have a clear understanding, they rarely repeat the same mistakes. I have been doing this now for a while now and most of the time I love it!
