About Me

Hi, my name is Michael. I have playing the game since early childhood and have been teaching/coaching since 1984. I have formal training in psychology and specialize in formulating an attacking mentality in all my students, in addition to placing an emphasis on the mental aspects of competition. My goal is to foster an ability in my students to mentally demoralize an opponent and win even while playing his or her "B" game. I emphasize formulation of variety, the attack mentality, and the game to complement it. I enjoy working with players of all ages and levels, but I especially enjoy the challenge of coaching beginners & intermediates because I can have a greater impact on their overall game. In addition, my unique junior tennis experience allows me great insight and something more to offer the parents of junior players. Most importantly, I promote the idea that having fun and staying fit is the primary objective in living the tennis lifestyle. My recovery from many sports injuries has given me a new perspective on life and the game of tennis. To me, each and every waking day is a gift! My life goal is to introduce the wonder of tennis to everybody I meet and to help those who have already been enlightened to be the best that they can be!

Teaching Style

In addition to fundamentals, my instruction emphasizes formation of the "attack mentality" and the shots/game to complement it. My advanced degree in psychology allows me to tailor my instruction to my student's specific needs based on the student's individual learning style. I use video to assess and analyze technique which greatly assists students in learning and developing proper technique. I also incorporate ball-throwing machines in the sessions, which allow me to stand near the student to closely examine and verbally instruct.
