Hi! I am from Australia and before moving to America on 15th October 2015, I was a coach at the Four Season Tennis School for 10 years.
Basically, I made it to # 11 in Australia as a Junior, had lots of fun doing it - It kept me grounded and here I am today..
Here is my profile on FSTS:
Jill started hitting balls with innate ability at the age of 10. She soon took to a regular squad regimen and competition followed with many tournaments and improving ranking. She won the South Coast Open as a junior.
Between 1992-95 Jill represented NSW (New South Wales) in state tennis. In 1996 she qualified for the Under 18 National Team.
She parlayed her experience as a competitor to train as a coach and now combines this with her empathic qualities to coach children for FSTS. She is a Qualified Master Pro 3 with ATPCA (Australian Tennis Professional Coaches Association)
Every kid is different but one thing isn't....they should have Confidence and self belief - this is most Important.
I will ensure your darling gets that. I will teach them, make them believe in themselves and bring out the beautiful child that you brought into this world.
I do not remember being a little kid playing & learning tennis. I just did it and was good at it but when I started coaching and especially when I coached for Special Olympics Kids in Sydney - that was a changing factor in my life!! It made me realize how a beginner feels to pick up a racquet.... Now that is what I specialize in.

Jillian was a glorious and valued asset to our tennis school in Sydney, Australia for several years till 2015. She was loved by the children who would request her as their coach in the Saturday morning group tennis sessions.
Her approach was gentle but instructive. She improved technique by communicating very well and making children pay close attention.
I highly recommend her teaching style, and her personality which went hand-in-hand. She is a star performer and a wonderful human being!

Jillian is wonderful! She has been coaching our twins (11) and doing a fantastic job. They have very different personalities and Jillian has been able to connect with both of them. They love her and the tennis lessons and have improved greatly. We highly recommend her!
Jillian is a wonderful coach and she makes tennis fun for my daughter!
I found it difficult to find a sport my daughter would like as she was not motivated to try anything nor was she competitive, she just wanted to hang at home on her iPad. I suggested tennis which she wasn't thrilled about. Then she met Jill and her attitude changed. Jill is very engaging and encouraging of her students. She gives constructive advice and helps boost the confidence of her students. My daughter has picked up some valuable skills and is now keen to play tennis. Without a doubt Jill is the reason my daughter has continued playing tennis 3 years later. Jill is a wonderful role model and my daughter always says she was her best coach ever!
Jillian has been helping me with developing my tennis game now for around 5 years. She's given soon much knowledge over the years that money simply cannot buy. I will truly miss her. Thanks Jill
Jillian has been my tennis coach privately for the past 2years. Our lessons where well structured and planned to suit my personal needs. This was great for me as it focused on my needs as an individual. Thank you Jillian.
The best coach my grand daughter could possibly have. Extremely knowledgeable, highly dedicated and motivated instructor. Easily relates to the student which creates an atmosphere of bonding. She goes beyond the teaching requirement by watching student's matches so that she can critique the student at the next lesson. I would highly to the infinite recommend her. One of a kind.
Jillian was so good with my 9 year old daughter! She was patient, so sweet and made the lesson fun for her. You know you have a good coach when your shy daughter smiles and laughs the whole lesson. We are very pleased with Jillian and look forward to have her work with our daughter!
Jill is an excellent coach. She does a great job teaching the fundamentals and incorporating tennis fitness into the drills. Her positive attitude is great on the court to keep the lessons fun and upbeat.
Jillian has been wonderful for my daughter. They immediately hit it off. Jillian has helped her improve her game and gain confidence in herself. Jillian does it with a smile and a nurturing attitude all while pushing her to do her best. We are very pleased!
Jillian is awesome. She works great with kids and really know how to get them rolling and in a fun way. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone interested in tennis or needing lessons. My son has already started improving in only 1 lesson. Great job Jillian.
Jillian is excellent with all kinds of skill levels and really knows how to get the lessons across. Nice job Jillian and thank you so much.
