About Me

I was fortunate enough to grow up in a caring, loving environment where my brothers, sister and I each excelled at several sports, including but not limited to, baseball, hockey, tennis, soccer, swimming, figure skating, gymnastics, sailing and golf. The spirit of fair and honest competition was instilled in me at an early age, as was the desire to excel. I strive to exhibit these qualities during my teaching. I thoroughly enjoy the exhilaration, exercise and many health benefits that occur when participating in a fun enjoyable activity or sport. I thrive on the competition, but also like to engage in a more relaxed atmosphere when the situation warrants. I guess you could say I cater to all and aim to please.

Teaching Style

I don't necessarily specialize in any one aspect of the game nor do I have a specific teaching specialty. I take each individual on their own merits and work developing their strengths and eliminating their weaknesses. I structure each lesson according to the particular individual and what they are looking to accomplish. I have taught young kids looking to just have fun, engage in conversation, laugh, and hit some tennis balls. I've taught teenagers looking to make the high school team and those looking to climb the ladder on the team. I have taught adults looking to get better at the local tennis club and those looking for tips on how to beat that particular person. So, again, my teaching style is catered to specific needs and goals in some circumstances and a more relaxed approach for those students just looking to learn the basics of the game, get some exercise and have some fun.

Good with kids, puts in the effort to make them comfortable, gets friendly. Focuses on getting the basics right for a good foundation.

Karthik S. - June 26, 2019

Frank does a good job instructing my teen. He seems to enjoy teaching tennis and working with youth. He is very encouraging to my son.

Karen D. - August 12, 2015

Frank is a great tennis coach. He knows the game and is very patient when teaching. Frank's style is to play back and forth with you, instead of drills. He is very flexible with scheduling as well.

Brittany D. - February 2, 2016

Frank has been a great instructor to my 6 year old daughter. She was enthusiastic about trying tennis and his patience and encouragement has really allowed her to come out of her shell. I'm always grateful when I find someone who is willing to take the time to listen to her as well as teach.

Valessa G. - August 21, 2016

Frank is a great instructor! He does an excellent job explaining the mechanics and techniques of the sport, while still making the lesson fun and challenging. He’s been very accommodating with scheduling as well. A+ !

Linda K. - June 7, 2017

Frank was great with my shy 9 year old son who is very new to tennis. He had a lot of fun, and felt very comfortable with Frank. Thanks so much!!

Laura R. - July 18, 2017

Frank has been great with my 9 year old son who is on the shy side and completely new to tennis. He feels very comfortable with Frank and is having a lot of fun while learning. Also, Frank been very accommodating with lesson times as our schedule is very busy. We're very happy that we found Frank!!

Laura R. - July 31, 2017

Fun to hit with for any player young or old.

Jurgen A. - June 13, 2018

I am probably older than Frank's usual student (+75). I have been away from the game for a long time and wanted to ease myself back in. Frank shows great patience and understood my need to take some breaks :-). I am making good progress and looking forward to playing for many years to come...well, at least a few years. Highly recommend him.
