Hi, my name is Jay. I am a professional tennis instructor at the Mission Viejo Country Club and the Saddleback women's tennis coach. I have been the Saddleback women's tennis coach for 15 years and have been teaching in the Mission Viejo area for 25 years. I have experience in teaching all levels of players from beginners to advanced to tour level players. I have taken students from beginner to pro level. I've had many students who became highly ranked and many more who received a college scholarship. I taught my son from the beginning to now where he is a scholarship tennis player at the University of Oregon. I emphasize good fundamentals and knowledge of the game. I expect the student to work hard but at the same time I like to have fun. I do hold the student to a high standard but I never yell at a student. I understand that each person learns differently and I work hard to connect with the student on the level on which they are comfortable.
The first thing I do when I meet a new student I listen to what they want out of the lesson. Next, I see what their tendencies are and what we have to build upon. From then on I try to shape the students stroke and movement to be economical and efficient.

Jay is the best tennis instructor I've ever had. He knows how to break down my technique and show me whats wrong with it. I've learned so much after only 4 lessons. I am already a way better player now than I was only a month ago. All these years no instructor has ever helped me this much. Everything has just started to click for me. Thank you very much Jay.
