Student Feedback

I have had 4 lessons with Gerald so far. Great coach and communicator! I would recommend him to any weekend warrior/club player (as I am..) who wants to improve from strokes to tactics.

Anton G. - May 6, 2022

Our new coach is perfect for us, as he understands our needs and capabilities. and insures we are doing the proper drills to move forward.

Richard F. - April 18, 2021

My 14 year old son has recently started training with Coach Gerard as he prepares to try out for his high school tennis team, and he is so happy to have connected with him. Coach Gerald is a gifted coach, who quickly got to know my son and identify where he needs improvement and training. He is patient and responsive and has a great demeanor and ability to communicate. My son has already seen results and is excited to continue work with Coach Gerald.

Len L. - January 18, 2021

Gerald is awesome! As a group of four beginner tennis players, we knew we would need a patient and fun coach. Gerald does a great job of keeping all four of us engaged at the same time while coaching us individually too. We started with basics and continue to learn new things each week. We continually look forward to our lessons and definitely recommend Gerald!

Morgan M. - October 9, 2020

Gerald has been an incredible coach and motivator for my son. It’s typically difficult to get my son motivated to do sports and lessons of any kind. These are the only sessions he always looks forward to. And he is making amazing progress! Love mytennis and Gerald!!

Kelly B. - July 9, 2020

Gerald is a great tennis coach for kids! He knows how to make it fun and engaging and has a lot of patients for beginners. My two girls (ages 8 and 11) have tried a lot of group lessons and have never enjoyed them. Tonight at dinner they spent the entire time talking about the fun games Gerald played and how funny he was. I'm thrilled that they are learning to love a life long sport. Thanks Gerald!

Stephanie H. - July 9, 2020

Gerald is very patient with my daughter. He is always giving positive feed back and makes it fun. She always wants to go to her lesson. He gives great instruction at a level my 9 year old can understand.

Kristina R. - August 16, 2019

Gerald has been a great coach for my son and me. He is knowledgeable, watches each of us closely and cues us so well on how to do something better. He’s patient and fun and the lessons have been progressing at a perfect pace.

Debi K. - July 11, 2019

Gerald has been awesome! As a tennis beginner, he taught me all of the basics, and I have improved a lot in just a few short lessons! I feel a lot more confident on the tennis court. I would definitely recommend him as a coach, and I look forward to learning more from him!

Megan K. - June 17, 2019

Gerald is awesome! He is able to really hear what it is I want to work on, and teaches very efficiently and makes it fun. I felt more confident after just one class with him! I plan on having teach my daughters when the timing works. I highly recommend him!

Julie K. - December 17, 2018

Gerald rocks! My 7 y.o. daughter took to him right away and looks forward to her lessons! He is so much fun and has lots of different teaching mechanisms appropriate for her playing level. He is very reliable and dedicated! We highly recommend Gerald!

Andrea K. - November 22, 2018

Great with my 10-year-old beginner. He came out of the first practice saying how fun Gerald makes the game.

Brett T. - September 17, 2018

My son and I enjoy the lessons.

Elena V. - June 10, 2015

He is a great, upbeat and super knowledgeable guy. He makes lessons fun!

Alicia R. - June 10, 2015

I am getting so much out of my lessons with Gerald. I will sign up for a new set soon. He knows exactly what he's doing and analyzes your shot very well, but he makes it fun while you're getting better. You can't go wrong taking lessons from Gerald. Highly recommended.

Eric G. - August 25, 2015

Gerald is a fantastic teacher who makes our lessons fun. He is very patient with our teenager while giving her the guidance she needs in a way she understands (not an easy task). He also teaches my husband and me sometimes together and sometimes separate, and we both have seen tremendous improvement. He is professional and flexible. I would highly recommend him for all levels, group and individual.

Christina B. - September 28, 2015

Gerald is a great teacher. I am getting back into tennis after an injury and Gerald knows how to structure my lesson to get me back in the game. He can analyze your stokes and make minor adjustments for maximum results. The lessons are fun and I can already see improvement

Marianne S. - February 22, 2016

Gerald is very friendly and he makes me feel at ease learning the techniques.

Frieja Z. - March 7, 2016

My son has progessed substantially after several lessons with Gerald!

Noel S. - July 14, 2016

Gerald is THE BEST. He is coaching my 6 year old son and keeps him engaged and having fun even through the sweltering heat! He is knowledgeable, a great teacher, has infectious energy and truly is great with kids! So talented on so many levels. He's a gem!!!

Sharyn E. - September 18, 2016

He quickly assessed my needs and coached me appropriately.
Also his positive encouragement made entire lesson so pleasant.
I really had a great time with him.

Frances C. - December 7, 2016

Gerald was friendly and patient with us beginners. Gerald started us out in our first lessons with drills that fit our experience. My son and I look forward to our followup lessons.

Gregory O. - February 23, 2017

My 2 kids thoroughly enjoy training with Gerald. He has a nice touch with them. I recommend Gerald!

David S. - March 9, 2017

Gerald is very observant and tailored his instruction based on my specific needs for improvement After just 2 lessons I am already feeling more confident on the court.
