About Me

Hi, my name is Marnie. I was a nationally ranked junior and college player. I was a division three NCAA participant. I attended Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy for half my junior year and the entire senior year of high school. I was a Florida State finalist in singles. I have coached boys and girls high school tennis along with coaching all age levels at country clubs and tennis facilities.

Teaching Style

I try to play with each player during the entire lesson depending on what their level is. I work a lot on structure, game play, and conditioning.

I found Marnie easy to communicate with. I liked the way she instructed me.

I had so much fun! Marnie was an awesome instructor...very informative! I highly recommend her. After six lessons, I'm able to play tennis. You must also be dedicated.

Marnie was fantastic! She was very easy to work with. My boyfriend and I took lessons with her together, and even though we are at different ability levels, she was able to teach us both and focus on the areas we each needed to improve in. I have been working with pros on my forehand for years without making any progress, and Marnie was able to instruct me in a way that led to significant improvement. She's very professional and the drills were both fun and helpful. I would definitely take lessons with her again.

My experience with Marnie has been excellent from the get go. She was very professional, punctual and prompt to respond to emails and texts. She is a very encouraging coach and was very accomodating for rescheduling sessions as well. I will certainly recommend her, especially for beginners like me, and I will probably take more lessons with her in the future.

Marnie has patience. She took her time with the fundamentals. She constantly watched my form and corrected me when I was moving incorrectly. She also has a great personality which made the lesson fun. I highly recommend her.

My two daughters are totally beginners. They only had short experience with another coach whom they felt was too strict. My goal was to have my girls learn basic tennis skills. Marnie is our perfect match. She is very patient and skillful. Communication with her is extremely easy.

Marnie is a great coach! My girls love her. She is very patient, experienced and professional. My girls have made noticeable progress in a short period of time. I highly recommend her.

First lesson after 4+ years .., absolutely fantastic! So glad that I was able to connect with Marnie and know my tennis is going to get better and better!!

Marnie is a wonderful tennis coach! She taught myself and my two teenage daughters in group lessons. First of all, Marnie has a gift for teaching tennis. We are beginners, but from the first lesson, her tips on tennis technique made us more comfortable and better tennis players. It has been such a great summer having lessons with Marnie! And a great way to bond as a family, because it brings us to a similar level so we can enjoy many hours of playing together as a family! Marnie is super prompt with scheduling and it is obvious that she loves teaching! As well, it is rare to find a female coach in our area and my daughters preferred having a female coach, so it was a great fit for our family.
