Student Feedback

Chris is patient, knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible. He explains each technique well and takes you through them step by step. He does not over coach, allowing you to find your own rhythm. From beginner through advanced play, Chris will improve your all-around game.

Chris is patient, explains techniques well, and is well versed in all levels of player. He is flexable as far as lesson times and locations. In a short amount of time, he brought my daughter to a level of play that enabled her to make the high school girls tennis team. I highly recommend Chris to help you reach your full potential.

Chris is a professional who strives to individualize the lessons to the needs of the student. His lessons are age-appropriate yet maintains high standards for the game. Every minute is used effectively, producing positive results! My daughter is a better player and a more confident person for the experience. I highly recommend Chris as your next tennis instructor! Thank you Chris!!
