Why Isnt There Any Activity Here? - 06-01-2020, 05:49 PM

I come into the "Ask The Instructor" section and I always see that "3 are viewing, or 7 are viewing, or 5 are viewing" when I enter. But it just seems like there is hardly ever any new threads started.

Why isn't there more activity in this section?

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz crickets. Must not be a lot of teaching going on right now. Understandable considering all that's going on.

I believe it's partly people posting instructor-related questions in the Main Forum.

I think for the most part people would rather post their questions in the main forum. They don't want to acknowledge instructors as anything.

I think in some of the threads I have seen, when people ask a question, it just turns into advertising for their teaching schools or a way to push lessons.
I have the highest respect for Fran because I never seen her go that route, just answers the posters question.

Larry, I think you are unaware of the range of PBIA instructors.

pm me your cell phone number so we can talk about it
i dont want to speak badly about some pbia instructors
mark finklestein can teach anyone anything
i will recommend him to anybody after my lessons with him
some of the other ones i am not so sure
you from all you have done in pool i am sure can also teach anyone anything
as i have told you before i would like a lesson from you
but many of them to start a beginner on the right path
they all do a great job
more advanced strategy and playing to win i am not so sure

Private students in their homes.
Been teaching mostly "behind the cueball". Getting their Fundamentals smoothed out.

This new aiming has been a big hit, AUTO AIM.

Thanks for asking

No Larry. Most of the great PBIA Instructors teach all phases of our sport.
Only SPF Instructors can teach SET-PAUSE-FINISH.

Guys. I would post in this forum every two seconds if I didn’t think people would get sick of it. As a very new player, all I want is to practice and be coached as much as humanly possible. I have become ridiculously obsessed with the sport. But I don’t want people to get to the point of, “damn, that tiny chick keeps posting her stroke drills asking for tips on her fundamentals”... so I end up stalking other people’s posts.
Here’s some good news that I cannot wait to post: tomorrow I am driving up to have a lesson with the great Jerry Briesath! I am so happy, nervous, excited that my face hurts from smiling.

You'll have a great time Leigh! Jerry is top shelf! BTW, take your cue with you. Jerry will show you that it doesn't matter so much where the balance point is, and you don't need to change anything from what I showed you.
