About Me

Hi, my name is Brian and I graduated from Central Missouri with a degree in Physical Education and Health. I have been teaching for 20 years at the K-12 and College level. I have been Coaching for over 17 years in a variety of sports, I just finished my 7th year as Head Boys Tennis Coach at St Louis University HS in 2019. SLUH finished 2nd in State in 2019. Previously, I was the Head Boys & Girls Tennis Coach at Francis Howell HS (2 years each) and Notre Dame HS for Girls Tennis (2 years). Starting in the Fall I will start as Head Girls Tennis Coach at Villa Duchesne. I was a 4 year Varsity Tennis Player in High School, including being the #1 player my junior and senior years. I have provided private tennis lessons for nearly 20 years. I am a Tennis Pro at Dwight Davis Tennis Center in Forest Park and previously was a Part Time Tennis Pro at Sunset Tennis Center in 2016. I am a USTA player in both singles and doubles where I play both 4.0 and 4.5 levels. I am a Part Time Pro at Dwight Davis Tennis Center in Forest Park.

Teaching Style

My first lesson is too evaluate the player and then place him or her with the right drills to improve their entire game. I set up lessons to meet the needs of the student. I focus on the basic skills needed for both singles and doubles, but can focus on 1 aspect of the game if needed. I am also available for hitting lessons.

Student Feedback

Coach Kirk did a wonderful job to coach my nephew. We can see his big improvement in the fore- and back-hand strokes. We highly recommend Coach Kirk to anybody who want to enhance their tennis skills.

After not having picked up a tennis racquet in 7 years, Brian got my excited and involved in tennis again! With his feedback, advice, and coaching, he helped me get my game back and taught me new strategies as well. He is also very involved in tennis around St. Louis and was able to recommend leagues and tennis clubs suitable for me. Brian is very personable and excellent at responding and scheduling lessons. I would highly recommend Brian for anyone looking improve their tennis game!
