About Me

For 6 years I was the head tennis coach for adults with learning disabilities at a non-profit organization in the South Orange area. I taught basic tennis skills every spring and prepared the clients for competition at sectionals and Special Olympics. I had a very successful team each year with many of my players winning medals, including an undefeated gold medalist in Division 1 singles. I am very proud of their accomplishments.

I have instructed tennis to general populations as well. These included: An assistant JV coach at Pingry Prep school (Martinsville, NJ), Camp Taconic – a sleep-away camp in the Berkshires, and most recently (2016) was the head coach for a middle school in Summit through the Summit Tennis Assoc.

I am passionate about tennis and play regular recreational tennis throughout the year and in local tournaments.

I believe in living a healthy lifestyle and know tennis is a great outlet.

Teaching Style

I typically teach teens and adults who have a USTA rating below 3.0. I cover the fundamentals first. This includes: grips and groundstrokes. As the player progresses we move onto volleys, followed by serves. Movement and proper footwork is stressed. I've also been practicing yoga for 18 years and can incorporate a few good stretches before the lessons.

Aaron was very good at teaching tennis basics to a beginner. He effectively taught the techniques required for backhand, forehand and serves. Very patient with a beginner!

I've enjoyed my lessons with Aaron! He is patient, gives clear instruction, and allows me to choose what I want to work on. I would recommend taking lessons with Aaron.

Libby R. (Verified Review)

My experience with Aaron was nothing more than positive. I can already see some improvements from just one lesson. I can tell he loves playing tennis just as much as he enjoys teaching others.

Cindy A. (Verified Review)

Aaron has been instructing my teenage daughter to help strengthen her skills prior to the fall season. From the beginning he has been commincative, responsible, and responsive and my daughter tells me a good instructor as well.

Larry H. (Verified Review)

My son has enjoyed his lessons with Aaron and is improving his game.

Jenny D. (Verified Review)

Aaron is super patient and offers great building blocks of advice. After my lessons I felt so much more confident in my game and had learned tons of ways to improve. He does a good job of mixing up drills and lets you pick what you want to work on. Definitely recommend him for any level player.
