Only one class so far, but very impressed with the communication and teaching methods. Allen knows how to keep students motivated.
Allen is very knowledgeable and great at teaching fundamentals. Great first lesson!
Very intuitive and observant on how to help me improve to the best of my ability.
I was playing tennis for about 15 years when I found out my playing level was not improving any more, when I met coach Allen I ask him to watch me play. He told me first of all, you need to start your forehand from scratch, which was surprising. He gave me 6 lessons mainly concentrating on the forehand. After the lesson finished I was not fully satisfy because I couldn't implement and apply very well. However I wrote a note for the tips he gave me so while at home I could start to practice what he taught me. After a couple of weeks my forehand strokes improved a lot and become very strong and deep. I felt the difference been made by the coach. Now every time I hit strong and deep balls I say thank you Allen.
Allen is a great instructor. He was able to identify and breakdown the issues I was having with my stroke, then take me through drills where I could work on and improve those issues. He was also very encouraging, without going too easy on me. I would definitely recommend him to others wanting to improve their game.
I paid a package for 6 lessons and have completed 5 so far. Thanks to Allen I have been able to improve my technique, game and confidence significantly. I learned something new at every lesson and was able to utilize what I learned when playing at a local league. I initially learned tennis 6 years ago somewhere else but only played for 9 months. I had forgotten everything about it. Allen was able to restart with me and with only 5 lessons, I feel I'm playing better than 6 years ago and know that there's still more room for improvement. I'm confident that Allen will keep making me better. Thank you very much, Allen.
