About Me

Neil has been certified by the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) and has years of experience coaching all skill levels, both children and adults. As a player Neil competed at the Division I Level for Rider University and reached a career high #10 MidAtlantic Men’s Open Singles Ranking in Spring of 2018. In addition to teaching privately, Neil coaches after school programs for the U.S. Tennis Association.

Teaching Style

Lessons consist of a light warmup from the T, followed by live ball drills, hitting practice and some serving. My lessons can be high energy and fast paced, or more relaxed depending on the client. In addition to playing Singles, I saw lots of time in the #1 Doubles position during my college days so I particularly like teaching the transition and net game.

Niel is an awesome coach! He’s super patient, takes the time to teach you the little things to help improve and is also just really fun to play with. My fiancé and I had no experience playing at all and now we can play pretty consistently together after a few months of classes. Highly recommend Neil for all player levels.

Neil was a great teacher. He explained technique in a way that was easy to understand and his upbeat attitude always made the lessons fun. I saw significant improvement over the course of my lessons with him. He is also very responsive and was great to work with in terms of scheduling, which I really appreciated. I highly recommend working with Neil.

Neil was a great coach, helping my buddy and me improve our game in just a few 2-on-1 lessons. We were looking for someone to help us refine our strokes and improve our consistency, and from the first lesson Neil gave us pointers that have made us noticeably better players. The drills were very helpful and allowed us to focus on and incorporate small but important tweaks to our ground strokes, approach shots, volleys, and serves. Neil was also able to help us improve our point strategy. We would definitely work with him again.

Neil communicated timely in setting up the lessons, and always showed up early for the lessons.

Neil provided clear instructions that were always on point (I used to be good at this game and remember the way things should be done) even though they were mostly wasted on an out-of-condition, semi-blind aging fat man. Still Neil remained positive and did his best to coach and encourage me, and I found value in the lessons as I did learn some new techniques. I recommend Neil.

I can’t recommend Neil highly enough. His instruction helped my son immensely - we requested a specific focus on improving his serve and the results were impressive. Neil is very responsive, easy to schedule and work with, and a terrific coach. Highly recommended!

I've had two sessions with Neil and I'm excited for more. I haven't played tennis in over 20 years but Neil pushes me at the right pace to keep me motivated, have fun, and get back into shape again. I'm looking forward to my next lesson and many more after.

Neil was always very accommodating and cared how well my son was progressing.

Coach Neil is very patient and always willing to walk around my schedule. He tried his best to customize the training to improve my play and footwork. I benefited a lot from my six lessons with Coach Neil and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn tennis or improve games. Thank you Coach Neil!

Neil, has been great, he has helped me go back to basics and completely reinvented my backhand. I would consider myself somewhat advance and I had second thoughts if this would really help me, and to my happy surprise , it has been a great journey. I had sign up for 6 lessons, after my first lesson I have decided to sign up for 12 lessons. Thanks COACH NEIL😍😎👍🏿

Coach Neil is a great coach. He takes the time to break things down, and even explain them in multiple ways, to help you understand. He is also very patient and encouraging. I can already tell a difference in my swing, and I look forward to only getting better with more lessons!
