Default Question to instructors - female specific methods?

Hi,
I have a question. Are there/ Do you have female specific snowboard instructing methods? I am interseted to know and would be great if answers comes from different schools/ countries.

Do you see the difference of lower body / upper body initiated turn
- as a general difference in male and female ?
- or part of instruction , beginner and intermediate progression?

My Italian (Tirolian) instructor whom I learnt from as a beginner, had explained to me as a Nth. American style when using upper body strength (swinging action).
He explained European style being focused more on the lower body, shoulders just point to where you are going.

Thanks
