Something I have always wanted from a private lesson and seldom received... After skiing with a good instructor for a period of time (hopefully more than 1 hour) they should have some idea of what my strengths and weakness are. Before the lesson is over I would like the instructor to focus on one main issue. For example, I am using my shoulders or hips (rotation) to start my turns. The instructor would give me some exercises (ways to engage my feet, pivot slips, tipping) and make sure I am doing the exercises in a correct manner before concluding the lesson. It would also help to have some printed (small cards,etc.) with the specific exercises to help the student remember for future practice. I think that during lessons some people are nervous, self-conscious etc. and having something to refer back to later would help with undersanding and future learning. This would make me want to return.
Having lessons each day I rarely needed to - but I might start next season...
