About Me

Hi, my name is Bo. I played for a D1 school throughout my undergrad degree at Campbell University in North Carolina. For singles, I used to play at second and third position. For doubles, my biggest achievement was #1 doubles team with my partner, Karolina. As a team, we had 13 wins in a row during the spring semester of my senior year. My teaching experience started in 2010. I was a tennis coach in Chipinaw and French Woods summer camps at New York area where I have taught private tennis lessons to children from age 8 to 14. I was also responsible for the children's group lessons (10 to 12 kids per group). The summers of 2014 and 2015, I taught adults and children at American University.

Teaching Style

Warm up from the T for 5 min and then move back (5min). Then, HIT various drills/games depending on the player's preference (30min). Last 15 minutes, hit some serves.

Student Feedback

Bo was a great coach, very knowledgable and patient with my two tweens who had never played before. She made the lessons fun and mixed up the different skills. I definitely recommend her for kids.

Superb coach. Excellent tennis skills (of course). Communicates very well, and is really patient and punctual. Highly recommended.

Shekhar A. - June 3, 2020

Brilliant player and teacher. Know the game better than anyone I have learned from. A competitive player who knows how to teach as well. Highly recommended.

Peter T. - March 11, 2020

Bo is both a brilliant player and coach. She has a keen eye for anything that needs correcting. Ideal for beginners to pros. Highly recommended.

Borislava is a talented coach who meets the students where they are, not where she hopes they might be. She is inventive and creative in the way she approaches her teaching. I would heartily recommend her, even for semi-reluctant and not-very-sporty teens!

S. C. - August 2, 2015

I'm an infrequent recreational player and finally decided I wanted to get better. Borislava was able to quickly determine my strengths and weaknesses, point out adjustments, and design useful drills and exercises. Lessons are very productive, fun and a good workout - her attitude is positive and supportive. Lessons have definitely motivated me to want to play more, and I've gained both skill and confidence thanks to my lessons.
