About Me

Hi, my name is Leonard. I have been involved in tennis for over 40 years. Teaching tennis is a passion for me. I love teaching all levels, beginner to advanced. I have a teaching certification and take that responsibility very seriously. I always give my students my best. I retired from federal service 17 years ago and now spend much of my time teaching and coaching tennis. I am also a certified USTA tennis tournament official. Again, tennis is my passion.

Teaching Style

It's all about the basics. Each stroke is broken down so the student understands how to properly produce them. This is most effective for beginners. For more advanced students, fine tuning helps to raise the game to the next level. For all students the importance of movement and balance are primary and are emphasized as needed. My lessons are goal oriented to meet the needs of the student.

We are so thankful that we found Coach Leonard on MyTennisLessons! He has been the perfect fit for my husband and I. We literally started with ZERO knowledge of the sport. We'd never watched a tennis match, nor had we ever stepped foot on a tennis court. Coach Leonard walked us through the basics and heavily focused on technique and form. I love that he is so patient and really encourages us to focus on our form first - so that A) We don't develop bad habits and B) we don't hurt ourselves! I would recommend Coach Leonard to anyone wanting to either learn from the start or to enhance your already seasoned tennis skills. He knows what he's talking about, is very patient, and will push you to challenge yourself.

What Roger Federer is to tennis, i.e. the complete package, Coach Leonard is tennis coaching’s complete package. Great instructor.

Great tennis lesson (AUG 6, 2022). Great tips on how to improve ground stroke performance. I really enjoyed today’s lesson. Coach Leonard does a wonderful job imparting his vast knowledge of the sport.
