About Me

Hi there! I am Maja,native Croatian with tennis background of 25 years. Have played both professional and college tennis and enjoy sharing that experience with students.

- 2012 National Champion - Women's Doubles at the NAIA
USTA / ITA National Championships
- 2013 The Sun Conference Second Team All-Conference
- Selected Second Team 2013 NAIA Women's Tennis All-Amercan
- Selected to 2013 ITA All-America Team
- 2014 The Sun Conference Second Team All-Conference
- Selected as 2014 NAIA W. Tennis 2nd Team All-America
- Selected as the Outstanding Senior Player for the 2013-14 season

My vast knowledge and experience as well as passion and love for tennis and sports in general made me feel like a very competitive coach who can share all this with other players and make them either excellent in recreational or professional tennis.

Besides tennis, in my free time if I am not working (we architects do have some time for social life!!) :D I enjoy hiking, traveling, reading, learning new languages, and meeting people all over the world. I have visited many countries and continents and had great experience meeting players and people with different goals and life backgrounds. Would love to meet YOU!

Teaching Style

As far as professional tennis, depending on player's goals and personality, I am very patient yet firm when teaching. I would like to make the best of both, time and money for player's benefit, therefor weather it is in a group setting or private lessons, at the beginning I like to see player's current conditions and I can feel what his/ her highest potential can be. From there based on how soon the player can progress, I base practice and conditioning exercise. In both, recreational and professional setting, I believe tennis cannot be loved if there is no fun to it, so every other day I like to incorporate fun games which include singing, dancing, word games while playing. I learned it helps body and mind relax and be more productive. Also, some days may be better or worse than the other, so if the player doesn't feel like hitting there is plenty of activities which can be done on the court if needed. It is all about to make someone love what they do.
