About Me

Hi. I'm Michael. I love tennis but love teaching even more. Both my mother and Nana were schoolteachers so I guess it's in my blood. I've been coaching boys and girls high school teams since 2004 and used to own my own academy - The No Strings Attached Tennis Academy, with the main goal of making tennis lessons affordable for all. I want kids to fall in love with the game. I want adults to improve. And I want my senior students to know that tennis is a sport for life!

Teaching Style

Patience. I emphasize learning at your own pace and have drills that make you feel like you're making real and immediate progress. We'll warm up with non-static stretches, work on mobility, and concentrate on one stroke at a time. Footwork is key though. If you can't get to the ball, you can't hit it! We'll move and keep moving. If you hear your sneakers squeak, you're on the right track.
