About Me

My name is Chad and I have been playing tennis for 20+ years. I have taught all levels - from beginner to advanced. I play tennis just about every day and it is my life's passion. In my quest to become a better player (I'm a 5.0) and teacher of tennis, I have unturned every stone I could to learn the secret science of tennis. I have literally scoured the Internet (mostly on youtube) for tennis videos - watching at least 1,000 hours of instructional videos with some of the best world's best coaches. I wanted to know exactly what the pros are doing to make them hit the ball so much better than a club player. I have discovered and uncovered some amazing tricks, tips and techniques that the average club player (and certainly beginners) have no idea of. Virtually every time I give a lesson, I am able to get a "wow" reaction from my students. Men and women who have been playing for 30+ years have never been shown or even know about the fundamentals I teach in my lessons. These fundamentals will make a huge difference in your game, no matter what your age or ability.

Teaching Style

I structure my teaching style around the ability, age and level of my students. All students learn differently and some pick things up quickly while others need more time. I like to evaluate the student's stroke (forehand, volley, backhand, serve, etc.) and video it with the Coach's Eye application I have on my smart phone. I then provide instruction to the student on the correct way to conduct the stroke. Usually it involves 4-5 steps which will largely be foreign and feel uncomfortable to the student. I suggest shadow strokes (swinging in the correct manner without hitting at a ball) for at least 50-100 times. But during a lesson, I will simply show the student the stroke and have them practice the swing or shot 5-10 times before hitting a ball. I emphasize proper technique the most. I then feed the student tennis balls for the rest of the lesson - of course making adjustments as we go. I like to give constant feedback so the student realizes what he or she is doing correctly or incorrectly. Towards the end of the lesson, I like to video the student again so he or she can see the difference in their stroke (from before the lesson).

Nicholas D. (Verified Review)

Chad is a tennis aficionado and an intuitive teacher, combining those attributes make him an excellent tennis instructor. I'm a 3.5 with the objective to reach a 4.0 rating by the end of summer. I booked a 6 hour package with Chad..we're only a third into the lesson package and I feel as though I've gotten my money's worth in corrective tips and repetition. I highly recommend Chad.
