Theresa McKeon

After more than 30 years as a national level gymnastics coach, Theresa was determined to find a way to speed up skill acquisition for her athletes while simultaneously decreasing stress and fear in the learning environment. Her search for behaviorally sound techniques, clean instructions, and the proper timing of feedback and reinforcement, led to the development of the TAGteach methodology.

Theresa now consults and designs skill acquisition programs in multiple fields including corporate training, industrial safety, medical and surgical training, sport coaching, even family communication. She is a sought-after speaker in the U.S. and around the world including Europe, U.K., Taiwan, Japan, Australia and New Zealand and has recently published her first book, “Don’t Nag…TAG! Success the First Time with TAGteach”
