Hot Teacher, Cold Confidence

Hi
I wonder if someone can assist with this dilemma...
I have a wonderful tango teacher who is fantastic at teaching.
But the huge problem is that he undermines my confidence somewhat.
Should I look past that or not?

Yep, had lots of those!!!!!!!!!!! My advice stay away, if a teacher can't help you wish your confidence then they are not doing their job right.

Agree. If a teacher is not helping your confidence they can be done more harm than good.

Absolutely agree. One of the most important facets in tango is confidence. If your teacher is not helping there, they are a bad teacher. In fact if they are eroding your confidence I would say they are doing more bad than good!!!!!!

I agree with previous comments. You need to have confidence in order to dance freely.

You are really vague on details. Does he tell you you are doing something wrong? He is not telling you that you are improving a lot? He might have a reason.
