About Me

Hi there!

My name is Alexis, or AJ for short. I have been playing tennis for about 8 years now. I currently attend UC Riverside and am attempting to complete my bachelor's degree in political science. I have coached both private and group tennis lessons for the past two years. Currently I help coach our club team for competition against other colleges.

Teaching Style

I like to emphasize footwork, and utilizing the bigger muscles of the body, as well as keeping a strong mental state. Many players rely solely on their upper body and arms to generate power and spin, which often leads to incorrect form, and possibly injury. When I coach, I usually follow this structure:

1. Warmups (Dynamic Stretches and light cardio)
2. Forehand/Backhand (Basket Fed)
3. Approach Shot/Volley (Basket Fed)
4. Volley/Overhead (Basket Fed)
5. Practice Serves
6. Practice Returns
7. Drill and emphasize specific shot (Forehand/backhand/volley, etc)
8. Go over mental state
9. Cool down and static stretch
