Teaching Philosophy

Each person is an individual, different and unique. A teacher must be able to adapt to each person’s needs, physical abilities, and mental outlooks. Being able to identify the major or root cause of the student’s problem quickly and correctly is a necessity. Next, one must be able to clearly communicate to the student what the problem is and what must be done to correct the error. Communication is the key to teaching. People learn in several different modes. A teacher has to discern how a student best learns. Whether the student is a visual, auditory, feeling, or an analytical learner, the instructor needs to be competent in presenting the correction in a form the student best comprehends. This entails video analysis, drills, demonstrations, hands on instructing, and clear explanations. The last important area of teaching and a very essential one is that of positive reinforcement and encouragement. It is difficult to change, and we know learning curves have their ups and downs. There maybe some downs in the process, but we need to focus and emphasize the ups and successes no matter how small. The student needs to feel positive about their progress. Learning can be a fun and fulfilling experience, and that depends a great deal on us, the teachers. Teaching is a learning experience in itself. We never stop learning, improving and growing and that is a reward in itself. To help others to enjoy their life more fully is a gift we can give.

Teaching Experience


1967 LPGA Rookie of the Year

LPGA Professional

Editor for Golf Digest Magazine

ABC Television Commentator Author and Women’s Golf


I wanted to take a moment to compliment the Academy and Sharron Moran for the learning experience I had in Colorado. Sharron was a very good teacher, and I believe my golf game has improved permanently. I know I have a long way to go, but for the first time I feel like I understand parts of the game rather than just being a ball striker. Sharron helped me to understand some of the game itself (at least as much as can be done in three days) with such things as when to go for the pin and when to just get it on the green; when to take your bogey and go on. I enjoyed Sharron’s company as well as her instruction.
