About Me

Hi, my name is Kristiana. I am a current first year naturopathic medical student. I have been playing tennis since I was about 10, and competitively played throughout the state of CT until I graduated high school at the age of 18. During high school I was the girls' #1 singles player all four years, made it to state championships, and broke school records throughout my career. I was offered a full ride to a university but declined to pursue my interest in nutrition and medical sciences at my state university. I played club tennis throughout college and taught children ages 4-15 at a local tennis center. Although I am only playing recreationally now, I absolutely love tennis and want to share my love of it with you. I can assure you that I am an excellent instructor who can get you to where you want to be in your tennis career, whether it be playing competitively for school or just using the sport as a fun way to workout.

Teaching Style

As long as it's in accordance with what the student wants, I typically start lessons with a ten minute warmup which includes jogging, lunges, squats, jumping jacks, pushups, etc. to get the whole body moving. Based on student's ability and prior experience, we then start hitting from the service or base line and we then move into more specific technique, focusing on forehands, backhands, volleys, overheads, and serves for about ten minutes of each per class or just one stroke throughout the entire class period. If the student is an advanced player, I typically try to structure each lesson as a workout so plenty of running across the court will be involved, in order to replicate how a real tennis match could look like. I am very flexible with how the student wants to structure the class because it's your time to learn and I will accommodate you in any way that I can!

Student Feedback

Ana was so great with our daughters! They were nervous at first and she made them feel comfortable learning tennis. We are looking forward to our next lesson!
