About Me

Hi, my name is Katie. I played college tennis at Tyler Jr, College and then competed at division one level at Evansville University.

I started working at tennis camps at the age of 19. I have worked at many tennis programs and academies. I have experience teaching beginners at elementary-middle school after school program at San Antonio All Boys Academy, and Grave Hearts Academy. I also have experience with high level tennis academy’s such as John Newcombe Tennis Ranch at both Junior and adult tennis programs from 2017-2019. I am currently working at Fit High-Performance Tennis Academy as one of the coaches since summer 2017.

I discovered my passion for her tennis was not just for playing. I realized I have a passion for teaching players at all levels to help improve their game and applying what they learn to everyday life.

I have experience teaching beginners, intermediate, advance level players. Including adult players as well.
I am currently studying Exercise Science in San Antonio. I also have experience with fitness and nutrition as ell. I have a personal trainer certification National Academy of Sport Medicine, and Fitness Nutrition Specialization, Red cross cpr certified also.

Teaching Style

I likes to start the warm-up differently every time for the first 10 mins. Whether its practicing hand eye coordination by tossing the ball to see how the player moves on the court. Or reaction drill to test the reaction of the player. Such as footwork, technique mechanics in the ground strokes. It all depends on the player level, and how their tennis game is. The goal is building a relationship with each player in order to teach them tennis and have the players apply what they learn into their tennis game.

Student Feedback

For the past two years, Katie has been my private coach. Together we have assessed my game plan and what kind of tennis I wanted to play. Personally, I am very competitive and tend to hold myself to the highest standards possible. Because of this, I am very self-critical and rather hard on myself. When I am visibly upset, Katie is patient, understanding, and considerate of my own personal goals. I absolutely loved working with her and would highly recommend her for any kind of lessons whether that may be competitive, or for fun.

I feel very lucky to have found Katie as a tennis instructor. Her experience and knowledge are great resources, and her coaching style, with a mix of technical instruction and match play, makes it easy to learn the game. I have a great time in every lesson. On top of everything, she is a wonderful person.
