NOTE: We HIGHLY Recommend doing 1 Hour, 1 Hour and 30 minutes, or 2 Hour lessons at a time with this Instructor. NOT 45 minutes! It's too short. The extra time with Avery specifically is truly INVALUABLE! 

(HIGHWAY Lessons are Post Road Test and 2 Hours ONLY with Avery after doing regular lessons for 1 and 30 minutes or 2 hours to Practice Changing Lanes First)

 

 

What's good everybody? I'm Avery! I've been an instructor for 4+ years. I very much enjoy the work that I do, and I hope my enthusiasm & expertise show when you're in a lesson with me. 

 

I'm very detailed and precise in my instruction, explaining the many nuances of certain situations when driving. I will not just tell you "what" to do, but more importantly I will explain "WHY" you do it that particular way. In my years, I have found that understanding the "why" of driving helps you become more mentally confident in actually doing the "what" more independently later on, if you know what I'm saying. 

With clarity comes mental confidence; with mental confidence comes independent thinking; with independent thinking comes great judgement in any situation. This is what a good driver is able to do at ALL times. And with me as your instructor, that is exactly what you'll become. I get the mind right! I got you!

 

Even with all of that, I still manage to keep it fun & humourous as well informative & productive during our lessons. In the car, I am your coach (kind yet stern), I am your cheerleader, and I am most definitely YOUR guy!

I have many phrases that I love to say to say to make my lessons memorable, but among my favorites are "Driving Is Science," "SlippinNGrippin," & "ABC (Always Be Curious)." When you roll with me you'll certainly find out why.

 

I am very much looking forward to working and learning with you. You may be scared to do/try things at first, but always remember, "Courage is not the Absence of Fear, it is the Triumph over it!" "FEEL THE FEAR, and then DO IT ANYWAY!" That's how you build courage, that's how you get better, that's how you Drive! And don't worry guys, I got you!! 

 

Peace!
