About Me

Hi, my name is Maria and I am originally from Colombia, South America. I have been playing tennis since I was 9 years old. Back in Colombia I was the number 3 ranked player in the country where I played as a tennis pro for about 5 years. To further my playing career I accepted a tennis scholarship from Southeastern State Oklahoma University where I played both 1st and 2nd position and majored in Sports and Recreation. For more information about my programs go to my website at

Teaching Style

I like to focus first on a student’s technique and after time as they get better with their technique I like to rally with the student. For me it is always important to give continuous tips and always encourage the student throughout the lesson. I specialize in teaching technique forehand, serve and backhand.

Me and my husband took private lessons from Maria and we are very satisfied. Maria is a great teacher, very patient, dedicated and a friendly person. We loved our tennis lessons. Thank you Maria!

Marija (Verified Review)

I would definitely recommend Ms. Maria V. I’m started off as a complete beginner and she was excellent at teaching me the right technique and focusing on developing good habits from the get-go.
Ms. Maria has a very positive attitude. She gives good constructive criticism, and positive encouragement when you seem frustrated! I can say with confidence, after every lesson I always left much better than when I came.

Maria is a delight. She was very patient, professional and quick to respond to my concerns. I received these lessons as a gift from a dear friend and it is one of the best gifts I have ever gotten, at age 66 that's saying a lot. This was my first time having lessons and I can't imagine having a better learning experience. I highly recommend Maria as an instructor.

I had private lessons with Maria without any experiences in tennis. She is an amazing coach! We moved along very quickly and she taught me tennis techniques I never known. She is always on time and pays attention to how I did and always correct what I did wrong which I love that! She gives me lessons which change my perspective of back-hand swing forever! Awesome experience with her!

She taught beginner's drills and we moved along quickly. After assuring that I had understood everything she was saying, we moved on into quicker paced drills. Then we scrimmaged against each other (learning along the way) and ended.

We hired Maria to give tennis lessons to my wife, who has not played for a number of years. Maria is very good instructor, but more than that, she is a sweet person, and has been very accommodating w/ our schedule. It's the rainy season in South Florida, and Maria has even driven across town on a scooter in the rain, to give the lessons. Despite getting soaked more than once, she never complained.

We are very glad that we hired Maria.
