Hi all, my name is Andrew! Active player and aspiring coach. 15 years of playing experience, 4 years of coached lessons in High School, and 3 years experience teaching lessons.
Grip positions first, then start with volley technique. Once gaining some confidence with volleys, ease into short court ground strokes. Finish with serve technique and drills to do on their own.

Andrew was incredibly patient while coaching me, my husband and my children ages 7-10. He was able to explain tennis concepts and skills on many levels so we could all learn together. He also texted me tennis skill videos to reinforce the skills we learned during the lesson. All around, great experience!
Andrew is an EXCELLENT and very patient coach. I came to him with zero tennis experience and subpar hand-eye coordination skills and Andrew made me feel capable and moved me along at the right pace. He went out of his way to come up with unique drills and practice swings to give me more confidence on the court and a deeper appreciation of the sport as a whole. Andrew made coaching look effortless even though it was clear he put a ton of thought and care into our sessions. Can't recommend Andrew enough - whatever your skill level might be!
Andrew has been a great coach for our beginner lessons! He has a super calm demeanor and teaches us great technique slowly. He’s also super responsive through text and flexible with scheduling.
Andrew is an excellent coach. His technique and knowledge sharing is very effective. He is very calm and patient. He makes it very comfortable for students to learn. My daughter and I were total beginners, and thanks to Andrew, we are learning tennis the right way. Highly recommend him.
Andrew is a great coach. Taught my beginner wife fundamentals while also giving coaching to me (intermediate player). Keeps the class very relaxed and approachable while making sure we are learning the whole time.
I worked with Andrew for 6 weeks (1 lesson/week). The progression of our sessions started with the basics of grip and swing and getting the fundamentals down. There would be a focus in each session (Forehand/Backhand, Service, Net Play, etc). As the lessons progressed, we were able to play some rallies while he was still coaching throughout.
Andrew is extremely knowledgable about the game and focused on teaching the fundamentals to create good habits.
His coaching style is a mix of laid back, informative, and easy to understand. He's able to break down swings, serves, footwork and explain what you could do better in a constructive and positive way.
Coming away from the lessons, I feel like I improved with my overall swing and serving. I feel more confident going into match play which is what I was wanting!
Overall, Andrew made me feel like he cared about my growth as a player, and I had a lot of fun while out there!
Andrew is an excellent coach! We’re beginners picking up tennis as a hobby and can tell he knows the sport well. Worked through foundational techniques to learn the game and he was patient and fun to have lessons with. Feel super solid already and excited to improve while working with him! Thanks Andrew!
I’ve been working with Andrew for almost a year now. Every session, I feel like I’m getting better and fine tuning my skills. Andrew is great. 10/10
