I currently work with adults and children -- all ages and all levels.
I can travel to your training location for additional fee.
Services include: technique working, tactics working both singles and doubles, tournament training and help with planning tournament calendar, athletic training and planning both tennis training and physical training.
I am always look forward to meeting new people!
First, I will ask you to tell me a little bit about your tennis experience. Then, I like to start with the warm up so I can observe your technique and analyze your mistakes.
After 5 minutes of mini tennis, I like to move to the baseline to continue the warm up. During the lessons, we will talk about some feedback on your game and then I usually let you decide on what we are going to work on for the rest of the time.
Moving forward, I will go through detailed explanation of 'your problem' and what we are going to do in order to fix it. I will provide you with an exact plan of how the lesson is going to look like for the rest of the time and 3 drills that will help you to improve your game. Starting with static drills and adding a progression with each new drill.
Finishing up with a fun game or a cool down hitting. Leaving last 5 mins for a ball clean up and discussing what worked and what did not.
I hope to see you on the court soon!

Great coaching ! Have learned so much
Coach Marina is very patient with me, and can go as slow as I need. The class was full of fun. I wish I had met her earlier.
I've gone from a complete beginner to feeling confident on the court. Marina is great. I have developed as a player faster than I would have expected. I highly recommend.
She was so pleasant to learn from and she helped me improve my beginner status a lot. Marina was always on time and stayed in contact if she was needed.
Great experience! Very professional coach.
Very amiable and easy to work with. Upbeat and enthusiastic. Patient with the kids.
Marina is an excellent player and teacher. I enjoyed hitting with her and
recommend her highly.
Marina is very professional and an extremely skilled Tennis Coach
It's easy to follow her instructions and very pleasant to train with.
She's most probably the best coach I ever trained with.....
Highly recommend her !
My partner bought me 12 lessons as a gift. He was fed up of my poor tennis. Marina quickly got me playing confidently over the course of one summer. She tailors lessons to your skill level and listens to what you want to achieve. I just wanted to be able to play confidently and to have fun. Achieved.
Marina is a great instructor. Very patient with beginners like myself, and she helped me develop my skills at my own pace.
As you develop, she starts challenging you a lot more which is great if you're interested in competing against other players.
