Links to Teachers
It may be that you live in an area where there is a teacher that you can't find. Below is a list of teachers who have confirmed they are willing to be listed on a website.
If you are a teacher and would like to be listed here, please send me an email.
A listing here does not say anything about quality of instruction. As with the suppliers page, if I get substantiated reports of teachers abusing students I will remove their link, but otherwse I cannot comment on how good or bad a teacher is.
