About the lesson
Hello my name is Talulla.
For me, every lesson starts with a smile. We'll begin with a brief chat about what inspires us to skate, our hopes and fears. Skateboarding has often been seen as intimidating to the outside observer, and can too be scary. But really, it's just a lot of fun.
We'll begin with the basics of riding- pushing, tick-tacking (turning) feeling comfortable on the board, and basic safety techniques.
Once this is covered I always try to work with the student themselves. This means finding ways of learning and tricks that work for them and helping them push them in new directions and styles. For more advanced skateboarders, we work on new levels, diagnosing common errors, and push ourselves in new directions.
Every skater will have things they find easier and harder, and everyone even the pros are constantly learning. But it's the act of facing fears and overcoming them that keeps us hooked to skateboarding. With this, I offer a more holistic approach to teaching skateboarding. I see skateboarding as a means to express ourselves and find freedom in our bodies as we cruise through the streets. This is what I hope to inspire in all of my students.
Looking forwards to riding with you,

About Manchester Tutoring
A young female skater here in Manchester. I've taught skateboarding both free-lance and with organizations for the past five years. This career has taken me from free-lance teaching in London to coaching in Refugee Camps in Greece, in schools across Kenya, and now with youth groups and to individuals here in Manchester.
Throughout these experiences, I've seen countless lives being changed through skateboarding. Students have gained confidence and experienced newfound freedoms as they push their boundaries and fears on a board. It's the liberating and empowering nature of the sport that keeps me skating all day every day, and inspires me to share it with everyone along the way!
Perfect! Tal is an excellent tutor. She is really helping my daughter build up skills and confidence.
