Hi, my name is Michael. I am a PTR certified tennis instructor. My involvement in tennis has been a source of fun, fitness and great friendships for many years. It is a sport one can learn and have fun with at any age. Even though I have played recreationally and competitively for decades, I still consider myself a student of the game. Much of my time off court is spent studying how to improve my game and the game of my students. I live in Center City, but enjoy visiting courts in any of the burbs.
My lesson is dependent on my students playing experience. I like to know what stroke they least like hitting, whether it be backhand, forehand, serving or finishing a point at the net. New players focus on timing and point of contact. It should be fun for student and teacher.

Really enjoyed Mike's coaching! I'm a 3.5-4.0 player that was looking to approve specific aspects of game, primarily my net play. Mike's patient, friendly, and knowledgeable and gave me great tips and guidance on where to improve. Played several matches since, and have already seen noticeable improvement with only a few lessons.
This was my first lesson with Michael; he was extremely approachable, encouraging, and patient. He taught me the different grips, strokes, and even how to serve. His knowledge and encouragement has me looking forward to my next lesson and wherever my tennis journey may lead.
He’s great. Super knowledgeable and patient. Great tennis instructor!
Michael is a fantastic coach. He’s very knowledgeable, gives great and helpful feedback, and listens to the needs of his students.
Michael has been an amazing coach. Very friendly, patient, always punctual and possesses tremendous knowledge of the game. His teaching style is very easy to follow and would recommend him to all levels of tennis players out there looking to improve their game.
