About Me

I have 32 years experience teaching, 20 years experience coaching college tennis , 9 years directing junior academies, and 16 years experience directing adult programs. I worked with over 300 ranked players (as high as ITF/WTA). I am a USPTA Master Professional and PTR International Master Professional, one of 10 persons in the world to hold both distinctions. I won the Doc Counsilman Award - US Olympic Committee Coach of the Year in 2012 , was named Best of Boston in 2010 and was a four-time Pro of the Year. For training, I have a Master of Tennis Performance by iPTA (International Tennis Performance Association) and CSCS-NSCA, Sanchez-Casal, and Etcheberry. I have trained/certified more than 1,500 coaches (for PTR, USPTA and USTA). I have a doctorate in coaching and sport psychology and am a USTA Sport Science Committee member. I have written over 100 tennis articles, was a member of the USTA Sport Science Committee and have spoken at various major conferences around the world.

Teaching Style

Let me know what your goals are. It's about listening and understanding you. I teach from 3 to 93 years old, complete beginners to world-ranked players. Some students like a workout, others want to get better, some just want to learn a little and play with friends, and others are competing. First lesson typically will have a 15 minutes assessment. Lessons may be focus on learning a couple things, whether technique/strokes or tactics/strategy or mental/physical preparation. I emphasize all skills, strengths and weaknesses, not just baseline play.
