    I am Aaron from Singapore. Turning 27 years of age this year. I am interested in taking snooker lessons from you. I have been playing this game since i was 14 years old and I am looking forward to playing more snooker tournaments and excelling in the game going up to the next level. I would like to check with you, what are your rates? And also as I would be funding this entirely on my own, I need to work out a budget and to cover my expenses there, what are my options to get a part time job?
