About Me

I have been an avid tennis player since I was 9. I played tennis for my junior high school and played no. 1 for my high school all three years. I have had the opportunity to teach for the past 30 years and have been an instructor certified through the PTR organization. Eight years ago I started coaching varsity tennis at the Scotch Plains Fanwood High School (girls in the fall and boys in the spring). I was named "coach of the year" three times for Union County, New Jersey. I am still currently coaching these teams and have had much success with them. I am a senior professional at Mountainside Racquet Club in Mountainside New Jersey. I also teach at the prestigious Westfield Outdoor Tennis Club in Westfield NJ. During the weekends I teach students ranging from adults to 5-year-olds and have had a lot of success with them as well.

Teaching Style

I focus my lessons on point of contact and footwork. I believe those are the two fundamentals that make you a good tennis player. I like to work a lot of footwork drills into my lessons as well as teach students how to hit the ball and anticipate where to be in the court.
