About Me

Hello! I believe my cheerful, positive and enthusiastic attitude to be a strong asset in keeping people interested and excited about improving their game. I coach all ages. I have worked with a wide range of ages and skill levels, starting with kids as young as 5 years old and teaching adults well into the 70s. I have worked with top ranked junior players, kids who have never picked up a racket before, and recreational adult players looking to improve their game. I've trained at tennis academies all over the world and thus have an extensive knowledge of training and coaching techniques. While I love coaching players of all ages, I work best with up-and-coming junior players.

Teaching Style

Create player development programs for specific needs. Implement tennis specific training and fitness programs. I focus on the fundamentals of tennis, building a strong foundation, and most importantly, I like to create a fun, patient, and encouraging environment. For kids I'll focus on drills/games to make sure they have fun while learning all the fundamentals of tennis. With players trying to improve their game we'll work to adjust their bad habits and strengthen what they do best. We'll do drills, rallies hitting from every angle of the court, working not just on fundamentals but also footwork, mindset, tactics.
