About Me

Hello, My Name is MJ, owner/operator/director of MJ's Tennis Academy in Palm Desert, CA, which is five minutes from the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, CA. I'm 51 years old and a father of three children. I recently returned to teaching tennis full-time after spending the last 23 years working as a social worker. Prior, I spent six years, from 18 to 24 years of age, playing on the professional Challeng Tour. College for the University of Redlands and UC Santa Barbara then playing on the professional Satellite/Challenger Circuit, traveling throughout Europe and Mexico! I love teaching and hitting with all levels. I have lots of patience! I love teaching kids, as I'm the tennis director for my local parks and recreation district. I also teach privately for the exclusive Parker Resort in Palm Springs. I'd love to meet you, so we can talk and play tennis!

Teaching Style

My teaching style varies from student to student. I pride myself in being able to adapt to individual athletic ability and strengths and weaknesses as well as individual technique. My main focus and area I stress upon is footwork! I believe that good footwork is the key to a successful player!

The whole experience with MJ was wonderful. He is super friendly and immediately has a warmth that you puts you at ease. And my husband and our friends learned so much in that first lesson that we will practice throughout the week. He also gives you a great workout!
