I started teaching tennis lessons almost 20 years ago through our local YMCA. I was trained by USTA in Washington, DC and have taught students tennis ever since. I teach group lessons, private and semi-private lessons. I run a tennis camp every summer and enjoy teaching kids and adults.
I try to make the lessons fun and give the children a good workout. My lessons consist of stretching and hand-eye coordination games. Then we focus on a specific stroke, demo, practice then play a game reinforcing the stroke I just introduced. Usually, it's a whole group game.

My first lesson with Rixie was fun and positive, she gave me honest feedback and I already felt like I improved from her suggestions after one lesson! She is very good at teaching and making me feel like I can achieve small goals along my tennis journey.
My first lesson with Rixie was both inspiring and productive! Rixie exhibited a professional demeanor while she thoroughly explained techniques, strategy, and the daily lesson plan. Her patience was also appreciated while we worked through the mechanics of serving. I am very excited to have Rixie as my tennis coach for future lessons as I refine my tennis game and arrive on the Richmond tennis scene!
Rixie is an excellent instructor and helped me significantly improve my skills. She is organized, patient, and a good teacher. I am a beginner, and after only 3 lessons with Rixie my knowledge of the game and my skills in serving and backhand/forehand improved greatly. I would highly recommend Rixie as an instructor!
