You and your teacher may have a personality conflict. You should not study with someone who "loathes" you. The meaning of this term in English is maybe stronger than you intended to say, but if you sense your teacher doesn"t like you, go away and find someone else. I think I am one of my teacher's favorite students. That isn't saying much because I think most of his students are his favorites. He is that type of person. You need to find someone with a similar attitude-- who makes all of his or her students feel respected at the least. I have a poor sense of rhythm too but with my teacher's help am getting better.
