About Me

Hello! My name is Dean and have enjoyed playing and mastering tennis for over 8 years. I started when I was in elementary school eventually playing doubles, singles, and in tournaments at our local tennis court facility and then joining my high school team. To me, there's a moment when you're routinely playing tennis after having practiced for years when it just "clicks" with you. You understand not just how to hit the ball and get it in bounds, but how to strategically throw off your opponent and run him all over the court trying to keep up. My style of play leads to very successful results, winning tournaments for our team time after time. Mixing in spinners and overhead lobs as well as domination in doubles matches by volleying right at the net, I became extremely dexterous at the sport. Coupling strategic placement with solid serves and hard hits became a sixth sense to me. I realize that not everyone is willing to spend $60 per session in attempt to better themselves or their children at tennis which requires constant playtime and enhancing of abilities. So, if you're looking for a good teaching partner at a solid intermediate level, or looking to pick it up for the firs time yourself or for your children, I am happy to offer my guidance for a much more reasonable cost.

Teaching Style

Lessons will run 1 hour and you can choose a private session or group session. If the weather is poor we will have to reschedule. I'm very laid back and patient as a teacher. I do a lot of "mini games" that help players focus on all complexities of the game such as short court for accuracy, and others for baseline hits, down the line, serves, etc.

The lessons were for my son, Gabriel. They worked on specific skills and improving techniques. He feels that he improved in all aspects of his game. I would definitely recommend Dean. Communication about upcoming lessons was great.
