About Me

I am an experienced player with a history of championship wins in league and tournament play. I am also a successful coach of a State Champion high school tennis team. I also have several several students of all ages who through my instruction/coaching have achieved city, state and regional tournament wins.

Teaching Style

I emphasize technically correct strokes with proper footwork. I also develop players in learning an all-court game. I outline a plan based on the goals of each student. The structure of my lessons are adaptive to the rate the student is progressing. I try to give the student a reason why a technique is done a certain way. When explaining game strategy I explain from both the player's and the opponent's point of view.

Student Feedback

Michael is a great instructor--the lessons are informative and fun. My tennis partner and I will be continuing our lessons with him this spring.

Brit M. - February 3, 2016

Michael is great at teaching fundamentals instead of directly jumping into how to hit the ball.
He manages his lessons around your strength and weakness and is a superb coach if you want to learn the proper technique.

Akshay - June 20, 2016

Excellent tennis coach! Mike is friendly and relaxed, with a great sense of humor, and he is so knowledgeable about tennis. For every stroke, every footwork, he is ready with an explanation of how to get it done properly and efficiently.
