To me, it doesn’t matter. As long as the instructor is knowledgable, patient, and able to explain and demonstrate things well, I’m happy.
But I wonder if it matters to you.
Some people have told me that female instructors are more patient (if the instructor is a mother, could this be from dealing with kids?), while others have told me that male instructors push them harder.
Both are good traits to have. I like to be challenged, but I also like some understanding and patience, along the way.
What do you think? Any preference?
