Hello! My name is Alesia and I am a recent college graduate who earned my BS in Kinesiology (Human Movement Science) and Physical Education and Health from Liberty University. I also recently earned my M.A. in Kinesiology from Fresno Pacific University. I have 9 years of experience teaching and coaching tennis to all ages and levels of play. Whether you are just starting out with tennis, looking to refine your skills or interested in taking your game to the next level, it is important to make sure you get the best coaching possible so you don't form bad habits and you keep your body healthy! I was part of my D1 high school's 2 year State Championship streak for the state of Massachusetts and I competed in D1 track and field at Liberty for 2 years as well as the Men's Intramural tennis team which I made finals in multiple semesters in a row. I offer private lessons, (private hitting sessions) semi-private and group lessons to any and all interested. I am First Aid and CPR certified and am also certified through the Professional Tennis Registry. I currently teach high school Physical Education and coach the Varsity girl's tennis team for my school.
My teaching style is simple: It is formed based on the specific client :) Generally I can get the feel for the type of player I am working with by the very first lesson! However, all my lessons start with a dynamic court workout which then segways into a short court rally drill. I will then choose drills specific to what my client is looking to work on and then translate the drills into a game scenario to help reinforce technique as well as teach strategy. I always close lessons with a review of what was covered in the lesson as well as a few quick drills clients can take home and work on.

Alesia is very knowledgeable and helpful. Explained everything in great detail and made me feel comfortable during my first tennis lesson. She is definitely passionate about teaching and has very strong skills in presenting information. Loved having class with her and would certainly recommend her as a coach!
My son is 10 and absolutely loves lessons with Coach Alesia! She has a tremendous amount of positive energy in addition to excellent technical knowledge. She's great with kids!
Alesia has a great coaching approach. She's very clear and encouraging, and has a great rapport with our 16 year old! She's a pleasure to work with - very organized and responsive. Recommend her highly!
The lessons were excellent, very thorough, taught with great patience and humor. I definitely feel more confident in ability to play .
