Coach Samuel is excellent with my 7 year old daughter. He has a lot of patience and continues to teach her the fundamentals of swinging and racket control necessary for her to be an effective tennis player.

William L. (Verified Review)

I called (or used this website) Samuel for a 2 hour tennis lesson that I planned to give to my husband for a Christmas gift last December. He came to our neighborhood tennis courts which was super-convenient for us. My husband is pretty good at tennis, but I am not, so Samuel took us through the basics of form and position and forehand swing, backhand swing. I tend to be anxious, and he understood that right away, and coached me on breathing and being calm. I still hear his voice in my head when I practice my swing. Once we had covered the basics, he had us return the ball to him, then return a hit ball to him, then we ended by attempting to volley with each other, as he watched and gave tips. He had a great understanding of what he could do in our time there, and what we each needed.

Tami W. (Verified Review)

Samuel is very easy going and does a good job explaining the issues that need to be addressed with my strokes. I have enjoyed my lessons with him and have realized the flaws that I need to work on, especially with my forehand.
