Hi, my name is Danny. I'm a PTR certified professional 4a with 30 years teaching experience. I work with 10 and unders, juniors, adults and seniors. One of my students, Rishi Raghav, just 13, is #2 in the middle states section of the USTA. He is also nationally ranked at #81
He had his first national win last year in Ga. 6-3,6-4 and has had many wins since. I've also coached seniors who were nationally ranked in the top 25.
I am currently also coaching the varsity girls and boys tennis teams at the Friends Select School in Phila. Pa.
Update on Rishi!... He was the NUMBER ONE boy in the USTA Middle States Section for the 14 and unders for the year 2018! Lotta hard yards!
I specialize in teaching serves, returns, volleys and the all-court game.

Danny is an excellent tennis teacher! He can tell right away what needs to be fixed, teaches you the correct form, demonstrates it, and gives you drills intended to get the right technique into your muscle memory. He coaches you with patience and provides insight about the game and strategy s along the way. I am an intermediate player who can hit the ball, but with lots of inconsistency and bad habits Danny is helping me to break.
Danny was able to quickly build a bond with my 5-yr old. My son loves going to his lessons and is learning tons!
Words cannot describe how good of a coach he is.
He expresses his love for kids through his teaching
Very patient and humble coach.
Danny is amazing! I have so enjoyed my lessons with him and feel like in just a short amount of time, he’s been able to teach the most important tactical ways to change my game. Would highly recommend!!!
Danny is a great instructor who is very experienced in teaching all levels of tennis player. His instructions are clear and easy to understand. He knows how to explain techniques and can corrects your play step by step.
My son is enjoying and learning from coach Danny.
Danny is amazing!!! He’s a fabulous teacher and really helps you work on everything you were hoping to get help with!
My 15yo Son has had 2 lessons, so far, with Danny. He is loving the instruction. I’ve watched his game improve after just a couple of sessions. As a parent, I am thrilled with Danny’s level of patience, skill and overall competence as a tennis instructor.
My Son moved up from 2nd doubles to 1st doubles on his high school tennis team in a very short period of time.
I highly recommend Danny to anyone looking to improve their tennis game.
Danny was a very experienced and proficient coach. He was very knowledgeable with tennis techniques, drills and tactics and knew how to break down and solve problems in the middle of a lesson in a way that less experienced coaches would not be able to. Highly recommended.
We had six lessons with Coach Danny. He was patient, knowledgeable, and extremely encouraging. He knows his craft! We were fortunate to find him.
Taking lessons from Danny has been wonderful! At the first lesson he takes an interest in knowing what your goals are and helps you to attain them. He is very knowledgeable and is a great teacher, providing great feedback and insights into how you can use good technique to improve your game. He also uses technology to help you see your form and remember what you have learned. I would highly recommend him as a teacher!
I have hit around with friends over the years. Danny met me at the court on time. We warmed up then hit around for 10 minutes while he watched what limited skills I possess. Then we got to work.
For day 1, we worked on serve and forehand. He changed my form on both significantly, and while I bashed my first forehand over the fence, it wasn't long before I was hitting both my serve and forehand better than I ever have. I'm a long ways from comfortable with the new mechanics, but in one lesson, I hit the 20 best forehands I've ever hit in my life. He left me with some homework and next week it's backhands.
Bottom line: He moves the needle.
Danny was amazing. He was patient and extremely encouraging to us beginners. He truly cared about us and our ability. If I was a pro I would want Danny to be my coach. I look forward to hopefully taking more lessons and hoping Danny is still giving lessons.
Danny was fantastic for the first night with my husband and I. He was patient and very positive. He had a great sense of humor and he was willing to take his time and break terms / explanations into simpler concepts. He is conscientious and he will make himself available for instruction as he is able to.
Danny's a great teacher. He makes things previously thought unattainable simple to understand and ultimately attainable. In my 2nd lesson I was already starting to do kick serves, which was my primary goal. And he gets you to think about the game in new strategic ways. A pleasure to work, great calm personality.
Danny was wonderful with my 5 year old daughter. He was very patient with her, and she learned a lot! She doesn't want to take tennis lessons with anyone else!
