Hi, my name is Gregory. I have played tennis for over 20 years and played in various competitions. Using that experience I am able to help other players as they learn about the game of tennis. I have 8 years of coaching experience. Most of my coaching experience has been working with children ages from 3-18. For most it was their first time playing and they were able to learn the basics and improve from there. Others were intermediate and advanced players and we focused on specific skills in order to improve their play.
Also during the 8 years of coaching it includes 2 years of coaching high school tennis where I was responsible for running the team. It includes running practices, deciding on a line up, transportation and anything else that is involved in running a team.
Tennis is a fun sport and when teaching other's it is important to make it fun as possible. By making it fun the players don't see that they are also learning and improving as tennis players. When trying to improve skills it is important to start with the fundamentals. Ground strokes, serve, return, volleys and overhead are all important. Before a player can focus on strategy in order to help them win a match, they will need to have a good grasp of the fundamentals. Without a good grasp of the fundamentals, no matter what strategy they try to use, the result will still end up in failure.
Consistency is very important in tennis. Helping players become consistent with their shots is also a way of helping players improve as well.

I'm satisfied with my learning experience. Gregory was professional and provided meaningful instructions/advice. I'd book more lessons with Gregory if possible.
Gregory is a caring instructor who is more than willing to work on exactly what you wish. In addition, he is very flexible about scheduling to accommodate your time frame. Shows up on time. I would highly recommend him.
Excellent instructor.!! So knowledgeable and patient with amazing tips for my 14 year old. Definitely knows how to relate to and teach younger students. Highly recommend him!
As a beginner I wanted to take lessons to learn technique, practice playing, and learn more about the game. Gregory taught me so much, helped me feel more confident when playing. Highly recommend!
Gregory is knowledgeable and experienced. I left the lessons feeling like I can identify the cause of mistakes and now know the basics/what mistakes I tend to make while volleying and serving, of which I knew none of so that is great.
Gregory is knowledgeable, friendly and professional. His coaching style is great!!!!
