Hello, my name is Jana. I have been playing tennis for 8 years and I have been competing at a high level the last 5 years. I played in college and I plan on playing women’s professional tournaments for the next year, after already competing in two tournaments. I have worked with an excellent coach and I have learned valuable information about coaching that I wish to share. I have experience coaching juniors and adults. I enjoy working with any age as long as the student shows enthusiasm and willingness to learn and have fun at the same time. I grew up in South Africa, where I attended High School. I came to the United States where I attended college in Baytown Texas, Northern Virginia and will finish my bachelors at the University of Houston this year with a degree in English.
Teaching Style & Experience
For the lesson structure, it usually depends on the student. I like to seek out a student’s natural feel for something and then I like to perfect that and then look at other parts of tennis that I can instruct a student on and improve on that. I teach every stroke. I believe a student should learn everything.

My twins, aged 12, have been taking tennis lessons with Jana for two months and are thoroughly enjoying it. Tennis is a new sport for them so they were nervous trying something new. Jana made them very comfortable from the outset and they have enjoyed it so much they want tennis to be one of their main core sports and to continue with Jana in their lessons. Many thanks to Jana for her professionalism and introducing my kids to a great sport which they now want to continue in the future.

I have been taking lessons with Jana for a few months and my game has improved tremendously. I played as a child and teenager but had not hit balls in over 15 years. Jana gave me just the right amount of refresher time and went right into improving all aspects of my game. She is always flexible with my schedule, whether traveling or not securing a babysitter, she finds a time to reschedule my lesson. I have been very pleased with Jana and the staff at mytennislessons.com
