Teaching Style & Experience
I'm very good at being able to adapt to any style and level of player. I emphasize good technique and follow through. But being able to teach advance levels as well. Like the loop backswing, open stances, and the modern forehand. I like to start off with mini tennis then work on ground strokes from the baseline and progress to live ball. I work on the volley and serve as well so I can see all aspects of there game. Unless its a beginner then we start slow with just ground strokes.
