About Me

Hi everyone my name is Mahdi. I am a certified physical education teacher and tennis coach. I have played competitive tennis for 8 years. I am passionate about tennis and enjoy coaching students of all ages.

Teaching Style

Depends if you are beginner, intermediate or advanced. And I will ask what my clients wants to achieve and then do an initial prognosis of playing style to determine a good training plan.

Student Feedback

Mahdi is a great tennis coach. My wife and I have been taking lessons with him for a couple of weeks. Mahdi starts the lessons with a warm-up, and then gives us specific drills to help us improve in specific areas. The lessons are a lot of fun, we look forward to them. Mahdi is always on-time and it's easy to communicate with him to reschedule a lesson if necessary. Highly recommended!

Reaching out to Mahdi for lessons has been one of the best decisions I made. He responds to messages timely and is flexible with different locations in the city. Our first class started with Mahdi watching and analyzing my stroke style. He was able to quickly tell what was wrong, and we've been working towards fixing and improving my stroke since then. We're about 5-6 lessons in now, and I can already see huge improvements, both technically and mentally—I also tell when I'm starting to retreat back to bad habits, and am starting to be so much more aware of getting into the correct position and stroke when we're rallying.

Definite recommend.

I am a beginner and have been taking lessons with Mahdi for about 3 months. He is fantastic - he focuses on good form and gives drills to help with my specific challenges. He’s responsive, always on time, and cares about your improvement. It’s been a lot of fun!

It was my first time to find an instructor online. Luckily, I found the right person, Mahdi. I am a beginner and he is very kind, patient, punctual, and professional. I have learned basic skills in 6 hours lessons. I highly recommend him for any levels!

Jay K. - October 26, 2018

Mahdi has a real skill in observing exactly what my mistakes are, even if I don't know, and drills me on the basics; he is relentless in reminding me what I am doing wrong and praising me on what I am doing right.

He is able to motivate and inspire me. That's why I enjoy his lessons.

I used to be an absolute beginner and now I’m very happy to see that I can actually play at an advanced beginner level. My backhand used to be tragic at first but now I’ve improved and I’m enjoying the game even more. I would definitely recommend Coach Mahdi to anyone.

Ahmed G. - October 24, 2018

I'm really enjoying lessons with Mahdi. I'm an adult student who has played off and on since childhood but never learned proper technique. Mahdi's been teaching me the mechanics of a good swing and even after just 5 sessions he's massively improved how I hit the ball. Lessons are challenging and fun, and we keep moving for the full hour. Looking forward to more training with Mahdi - highly recommended as a coach.

Jeremy - October 24, 2018

My friend and I had no clue about the world of tennis (or how to play) before we started taking some classes with Mahdi. After the first 9 classes we were able to rally between us and now after few months we are constantly improving our technique whilst having a lot of fun. Mahdi is a terrific teacher he mixes harder exercises with more fun ones and calibrates each class based on our mood, weather conditions and our level of tiredness. He is always understanding of a last minute change of schedule and always available to plan classes on the go. If we became so passionate about tennis it’s absolutely thanks to Mahdi. We highly recommend him!

Amine L. - October 23, 2018

He is a very good coach. He is very kind and I had a very good experience training with him he improved my technique for my backhand and also take care of the physical side.

Hissaf A. - October 23, 2018

I have had the chance to train and play tennis with Mahdi and had a superb experience! I was coming out of a surgery and I was playing to get back to the scene. He helped me warm up and get me back to speed based on my pace.
He is very friendly and professional ! Beside his good technical tennis skills, he has got the talent to know how to train people based on everybody’s needs and goals. Mahdi has got good interpersonal skills that helps him adjust to anybody’s personality and allows him to teach tennis to everyone with great sense of achievement.

Atef - October 23, 2018

Mahdi is fantastic! He is patient and punctual at explaining to get down to basics. He finds a way that makes a lesson intuitive and also fun. Great instructor. Highly recommended.

Regina P. - October 23, 2018

Mahdi is an amazing coach! He helped me with my footwork, and form. He pays attention to every detail. I always have trouble with my backhand but thanks to his help I was able to perfect my grip and actual do a very good return. Thank you so much. Highly recommend!

Youcef A. - October 23, 2018

He listened to what I wanted, fast paced, direct, keep me moving, and delivered! I feel like I came 3x faster along in a single lesson with him vs the group lesson I took for months. Highly recommend for other beginners
