As a professional StarCraft 2 player along with former Collegiate League of Legends player I have the knowledge to help you succeed in the goal you have. I believe that asking students questions that drive them to find the right answer on their own is a very powerful and underrated tool. I am a strong believer in increasing the game knowledge of students while teaching them the best ways to improve and see success. I believe you can learn more from losing than you can from winning. You can learn from winning but the value is lessened.
