About Me

I played tennis at San Mateo junior college and have been teaching for the past 15 years. I have experience with all ages and skill levels. Tennis is my passion and being able to share my tennis experiences and knowledge gives my student a vast opportunity to improve their game and learn cutting edge technique while having fun! All levels of instruction available , from weekend warrior to tournament players!

Teaching Style

My focus is stroke production and modern footwork.

Student Feedback

I had always wanted to learn how to play tennis and finally signed up with Daryl. He was very positive and extremely patient with me. He always had fun drills/tools for me to practice that were specific to my skill set and encouraged me to be the best I could be on the court. I look forward to working with Daryl again!

I'm a true beginner and Coach Daryl is such a great coach! He is passionate in teaching and has always been patient and encouraging. He also explains the basic techniques very well, which helped me to improve fast!

My two kids, ages 12 and 14, have been coached by Daryl for about a year, working on all strokes, serves, and footwork. Daryl is firm and exacting yet kind and encouraging. He emphasizes good technique, hard work, and concentration. My kids have definitely improved in their playing. I recommend Daryl!

He is a very professional individual. I highly recommend Daryl as he was very patient with my inexperience. Thank you for a great lesson in tennis.

I've learned a ton from Daryl, and my game is hugely better. Daryl is patient, motivating, and passionate about the game and his students. I was touched by his concern and support during my first tournament.

Coach Daryl is observant, supportive, and insightful. He will challenge you to do your best, but will also encourage you along the way. His feedback is specific and helpful, and he will help you hone your technique through drills that focus on real player behavior (not "just for fun" games). I started playing tennis after years of not playing, and my skills improved significantly through his coaching. He truly cares about his students' skills and overall health.

Tami S. - October 9, 2015

Darryl has a very methodical approach to helping me improve-- my stroke has gotten much better in 15 hours of my lessons with him. He is very encouraging and has a good sense of humor.

Lydia J. - July 8, 2017

My 13-year-old son just started his lessons with Darryl. My son was a nervous starter but gained confidence after starting his lessons with him. After just six lessons my son is enjoying the lessons and very enthusiastic about the tennis club in school. As a teacher Darryl is very patient with beginners and gives feedback and helpful insights to improve techniques. Highly recommend Darryl.
