About Me

Hi, my name is Chuck. I am a laid back teacher that can accommodate any level player from high level/performance player to beginner student. You can achieve a great workout from my lessons or if you prefer can dial it down to tailor your fitness level and style.

Teaching Style

I not only teach the basics, but more advanced concepts like doubles and singles positioning and strategy, match focus/control, developing a powerful and consistent serve. These are all important skills fir development at any level of the game.

Student Feedback

I am very happy with what I've learned and how my game has improved. Chuck really has an eye to spot what you do right or wrong and adjusting. Moreover, he has his own way to explain technique and demonstrate different kinds of shots, which makes even sophisticated moves seem easy. He teaches state of the art technique and things he has learned from his own experience and each single piece of advice he has given me has made perfect sense to me and has resulted in more effective shots. Finally, he is good at motivating students, flexible with scheduling, always on time and fun to interact with.

Chuck is very knowledgeable about strokes and can adapt well to the individual learner. I had learned in high school and played to my mid-20's but dropped it when life got in the way. While I "remembered" the 3 basic strokes, I had also remembered poor stroke techniques. He is using methods to aid me in correcting these mistakes. At the same time, he is giving me great ideas to improve a rather unorthodox serve without insisting I change it drastically. He is prompt, and is adaptable to finding public courts. I recommend Chuck!

My 5 year-old girl improves her skill quickly with Chuck. He is a very patient and reliable coach, and he is very much familiar with local courts.

My 11 year daughter had multiple lessons with Chuck last spring/summer. He was very patient with her and great at explaining things to her. She gained a good foundation and started working on proper form/moves. Chuck was very flexible with the timing of lessons and was always on time. Would recommend him to others looking for tennis lessons.

Chuck is very patient with my 5 year girl. Made sure my little girl kept a good energy level in the 60min session which is hard for little kids. Chuck knows every single court in Pittsburgh and their maintenance situation and cost. A responsible and reliable coach.

My game improved drastically after taking just a few lessons. After a whole summer of weekly lessons with Chuck, I feel more confident with my shots and I am better able to diagnose my own mistakes when something goes wrong. Chuck has a good way to explain how to correct your posture etc and he also experiments with different ways of teaching the strokes, so that he can best meet you where you are. I definitely recommend him!

Chuck is an awesome coach! He is very patient in teaching the technique and correcting me when I make mistakes while learning.

He is a professional coach. His class is fun and interactive. He is also patient with slow development and therefore stundents can relax and enjoy his coach without pressure. He is also precise with all the machanism of tennis as a professional.
