Need an Instructor

So here's the quick run down. My girlfriend is getting in to kayaking, has her own boat and can wet escape just fine. She wants to learn how to roll by the end of the summer so she can build on it in the pool all winter and be ready for next season, but I suck at teaching. I mean I really suck at teaching. So I'm looking for a recommendation for a good 1on1 instructor to help her get her roll down.

So, one of the best places around you would be Bear Creek Lake Park. As far as instruction, I would come out to help a few times to do some instruction. I'm not an ACA instructor though I've taught a few people.

PM me. I can venture out Sunday. Sadly, I'm injured and haven't been able to paddle for a month. I wouldn't mind doing some lake work myself.
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

Also, don't underestimate the efficacy of instructional videos. An oldie but a goodie is Grace Under Pressure, but it's probably only available on VHS. There are several good DVDs though. Also, there are several Youtube videos that show a variety of technique.
