About Me

Hi there, I am rated as a USTA 4.0 tennis player and have played numerous singles and doubles matches in high school and have participated in travel tournaments, as part of the University of Washington - Seattle's tennis club. I have played tennis for over 10 years and I have continued playing tennis as a hitting partner, and also participate in local tennis matches around the King County area.

For over 5 years, I have taught tennis for relatives, friends, and kids from beginner to intermediate skill levels.

Teaching Style

I am very adaptable in terms of my teaching style, whether you're just starting off or looking to improve a part of your game. However, I always approach these tennis sessions with great patience and understanding while also adding fun into the equation. Tennis is always meant to be a fun, rewarding experience for everyone!

Student Feedback

Boris is such a kind and helpful instructor. He is super patient and knowledgeable at all things tennis.
I will definitely be taking more classes with him in the future.

Jason L. - April 24, 2023

He helped me warm up first and we did exercises for grip and forehand techniques.

Overall very patient and understanding. I am now more consistent when playing tennis overall.

I would recommend Boris as a coach as he is very enthusiastic and positive when it comes to helping me grow my tennis skills. He can tell what I want to work on and does not shy away and can kinda read my mind.

Carl L. - April 24, 2023

I was kinda nervous at first, until i actually met Boris in person. He was super nice, fun, and very accommodating with my skill level. Also very diligent and precise when teaching new movements .

My skills improved in a way where im comfortable with the progressions while knowing ive built a strong foundation with him.

Highly recommend!!!

Boris is the man!! He's an amazing instructor!! He takes away the intimidation of learning a new sport and simplifies the complex fundamentals into bite size information that are easy to follow and understand. He's very empathetic, patient, and encouraging. I love getting lessons from Bobo!

I highly recommend Boris! Whether you are just getting started with tennis or trying to take your tennis skills to the next level, Boris is your guy.

Hyun K. - April 24, 2023

Boris has taught me a lot! He is patient and extremely caring. He wants to see you get better and is proud of the accomplishments you make, no matter how small. I would recommend Boris to anyone trying to learn, he wants to see you succeed just as badly as he wants to succeed. It is an amazing feeling to have him in your corner cheering you on!

Joseph W. - April 25, 2023

Boris was such a sweet & thoughtful coach! He made each session so fun/engaging while helping me improve :) It took me awhile to get my backhand but Boris was so patient and showed me different ways until one worked for me. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!

Ruby B. - April 25, 2023

Taking lessons from Boris has helped me a lot with my tennis. As a true beginner, he thoroughly focused on my forehand, which was what I wanted to improve on most and got me to establish good habits. He is very patient, and I can tell his main goal is to just really make me learn while also having fun. I’d recommend him to anyone, especially if you’re just starting out!

Jun H. - April 25, 2023

Boris is an amazing instructor. Super friendly and so patient when you're not understanding something. He's attentive to your form so that you can get to the root of the problem and excel from there. Love playing with him! He'll hype you up the whole time 😊
