About Me

I am a USPTA certified professional who's been playing tennis for more than 40 years and teaching for more than 28 years. I was a highly ranked junior player and currently coach boys and girls high school tennis for a Division I Montgomery County school. I've worked as an assistant pro at Norbeck Country Club, been a director of tennis for summer camps in Bethesda, and am also a former fourth grade teacher in MCPS. I was also named the 2018 Washington Post All Met Coach of the Year for Girls tennis.
Also, please be advised that I will only give private lessons. I do not offer semi private or group lessons.

Teaching Style

I'm great with both kids and adults and adapt my methods to suit each individual student. I pay close attention to building solid fundamentals and incorporating great footwork, as I believe those are the keys to success. I spend the majority of my lessons on these principles and also build in opportunities for games as well.

Dre O. - December 6, 2017

Coach Mitch arrived on time and the lesson actually started a few minutes ahead of schedule. The plan for the lesson was perfect for my son, and the amount of drill time was close to the maximum. I could see the improvement in my son's groundstrokes over the course of the lesson. Coach Mitch was very positive throughout and provided good feedback at the end.

I had the pleasure of attending my first tennis lesson with Coach Mitchell today, and I am absolutely thrilled with the experience. The lesson was well-structured, incorporating a variety of drills and exercises that challenged me while still feeling attainable. Coach Mitchell tailored his instruction to individual needs, providing personalized feedback and encouragement. I am grateful for his patience and guidance, and I cannot wait to continue my tennis journey under his tutelage!
