About Me

My name is Jake. I grew up in a tennis family and trained with my mother since I was four-years-old. Later on in high school I was ranked as high as 25 in Northern California section, and top 200 in the Nation. Although I loved tennis such a long time I decided to shift my focus away from competition. Since then I’ve found a real love for the game and am playing better than ever!

I’m at a level now where I’m ready to give back the knowledge that all of my wonderful coaches shared with me. If you are looking to improve your game I’m here to help. You will improve the most with technique if you choose to take private lessons, although I have no problem teaching a clinic if you want to come with friends!

Last year I was an English teacher in Japan and found working with kids very rewarding, so all ages are welcome!

I’m currently located on Vashon Island, so any place (dry :)) in between Seattle and Tacoma I can travel to.

Give me a call and we can chat about what you are looking to improve on, whether that’s technique, competing, fitness, or strategy, I’m here to help in any way I can.


Teaching Style

I emphasize a tier of understanding that begins with first understanding how to use the body when playing. Once these techniques are developed, then I move on to strategy. Last is building confidence through repetition and practice.
I usually spend three quarters of a lesson working on the individual’s technique and the last quarter hitting. This way there is a chance to implement what the student has just learned and grow confidence in their game.
