Polina is an excellent coach! She knows the intricacies of the game and is able to break them down for beginners like me. I would highly recommend her to anyone new to tennis.

Beth B. (Verified Review)

Polina was such a great coach. She taught me so much about the game of tennis. Because of her, my technical abilities improved drastically. My game was no longer centered around winning and losing, but on loving the competition.

Nelda V. (Verified Review)

Polina is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient. She was able to tailor drills to teach three beginners of varying skills and ages (including one lefty). Polina is great with both kids and adults. She will improve both your technical skills and your motivation.

Polina is awesome! A true asset to! She's very professional, knowledgable and has an amazing demeanor. She is extremely patient and has much to offer any player looking to improve their game. Polina has helped me 'tune up' some things in my game. My time with her has been well spent.
