Chris is a great instructor who takes the time to tailor an individualized approach to his lessons. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, Chris is knowledgeable about the most up to date techniques of the game and you are guaranteed to learn something new during just one lesson.
My girls are ages 9 and 13 had no tennis experience whatsoever. The transformation I have seen is pretty amazing. Christopher has a lot of experience and it shows. He has an easy going and fun personality, always positive. We feel lucky to have him as our coach and give him a super big gold star.
He is very professional, kind and patient. In a two-hour lesson, I learned a lot from him. He has a unique method.
Excellent instructor. Chris has helped me make significant improvements to my groundstrokes, particularly my backhand. He has very good attention to detail, but his comments are clear and easy to execute. Chris has also helped with several physical issues regarding serving shoulder. He has helped me stretch my shoulder and pecs before we start, and has shown me stretches to do between lessons. He also has let me borrow rackets to demo and driven to pick up rackets for me to try from a store in Maryland. I absolutely will take additional lessons from Chris when my first set of lessons expire.
Great Teacher. Skilled and knows how to motivate.
Christopher is a great motivator and he definitely is helping me to identify and improve my playing performance.
Christopher has great patience with adults new to the sport. He communicates clearly and tailors instruction to individual students. His sense of humor and overall approach to instruction make lessons fun.
Chris is a great guy and a great coach. He's very good at identifying faults and fixing them in an incremental way, one at a time. Within 30 minutes, he had my broken forehand hitting a few sweet ones and my confidence soaring. There's good variety in his methods and fun too. Highly recommended.
He has been outstanding using both practical teaching, technology and more!
Chris is very professional and dedicated. He is more than a coach. When he feels you are talented, he wants to share all he knows about this game.
Christopher is very friendly and experienced. He knows how to encourage. He is also very direct in pointing out your weakness and instruct to correct it patiently. This is exactly what players like me who is looking for really good lessons need. Is a very good experience to work with him!
Christopher's expert teaching skills show in how closely he watches and analyzes my form. He diagnosed many of the problems with my forehand. Consequently, he could quickly identify what I need to do to improve my stance, my unit turn and preparation and my too short swing. In just one hour I learned more than I had in the six months before I met Christopher.
