About Me

Hi, my name is Ihsan. I'm an easy going coach who enjoys teaching, playing and competing no matter the circumstances. I always looking forward to any new challenge in my life! I thourghly enjoyed teaching school kids and I was referred to as "Coach Sam" which was easy for them to remember! I have also coached and captained some tennis teams and it was such a success!

Teaching Style

It really depends on whether you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced or even elite player! I emphasize first proper technique but also fitness so u don't get injured when you compete. I employ strategical tactics for the late stages and mostly elite players.

Student Feedback

Super helpful and patient! I had not played tennis for many years and Ihsan was able to help me learn the basics again. After only 3 lessons I've already seen a huge improvement! I hope to continue with Ihsan and continue to improve my skills, even if just for fun! Highly recommend.

Ihsan is the best tennis instructor. He is easy going, detail oriented and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

Ihsan is an awesome coach. He really tries hard to observe your game and personalize the lessons for you. For new players, he focuses a lot on the foundation like footwork and posture. I started as a beginner, and within a few lessons can do pretty decent serves, forehand and backhand plays.
He is also super flexible with timing and location. Once I mistakenly went to the wrong court, he drove to my location to meet me without any complaint!

Very knowledgeable, easy going and personable. I am very happy with my sessions and I highly recommend him to everyone.

I recently purchased the six lesson package as a Christmas gift for my spouse with Ihsan. Ihsan has been a fantastic instructor. In just 5 lessons, we can now consistently hit forehand, backhand, and slice even though both of us had almost no experience playing tennis beforehand. We are so happy to be able to actually rally against each other for 20+ hits!

Really great! He listens to what you want to focus on and also gets a good idea of what you might not think you need to focus on, and focuses on those things too. Easy going and very flexible in schedule.

Very easy to work with. Gave lessons to my 15 year old son, my wife and myself. He is very flexible and makes the lessons very convenient for the client. He is patient but also very focused and wants the student to improve. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to take a lesson.

Great teacher for my 8 yr old daughter, covers many techniques and strategies in lessons and shows genuine excitement for passion of the game. You will see progress in just a few lessons with Ihsan!

Ofer R. - February 22, 2016

Best tennis lesson i've ever had. He watches your game closely and tailors his instruction to how YOU can improve - he doesn't just do generic drills. I saw my game improve/change immediately, and I am excited to keep working with him. He's done a phenomenal job teaching my daughter as well. Highly recommend him for adults and kids!

Great personalized coaching experience. Ihsan is a very personable and experienced coach!

Philip G. - June 26, 2016

Ihsan has been better than we could have hoped for!! My high schooler and her teammate have improved greatly under Ihsan's superb skill and experience working with youth. His enthusiasm and infectious motivation really drive the lesson. We are so grateful.

Terri A. - July 27, 2016

I have been very impressed with Ihsan's great professionalism, in addition to his phenomenal ability to push you to the next level in a very structured fashion. I used to play on high school and college tennis teams and wanted to get back into tennis after not playing for a while and I don't think I could have asked for a better coach to help me do that than Ihsan.

Philip G. - August 23, 2016

My 7 year old son has now had three lessons with Ihsan. It's wonderful to watch how much progress he is already making in such a short amount of time. Ihsan is super patient with a beginning player, but he knows how to motivate him and how to teach good habits from early on.

Ihsan is very easy to work with, and quickly responds to messages. We had several scheduling and location changes that we requested on short notice (e.g. because of weather), and he was extremely flexible.
