Hi, my name is Scott. I began playing at age 8 in my hometown of Yorktown, Va. I took extensive lessons from 2 coaches, Bill Shiver and Brent Hughes through the age of 18. I began playing junior tournaments in Virginia then throughout the Mid Atlantic (MATA) at age 12 and achieved a ranking in each age group.
I began teaching junior clinics and private lessons at age 15 and spent between 25 and 30 hours/week on the court. I taught both adult and junior private lessons throughout college then moved to Orlando in 1991 and began teaching for Disney at the Contemporary Resort (summer junior clinics, private lessons and hitting/playing lessons). Also, I taught private lessons and hitting lessons for several resorts on International Drive in Orlando. Each lesson is dictated by the needs and wants of the student in conjunction with their talent level, ability to move, etc. I am proficient at adapting each lesson to the students’ expectation and need.
Scott has been wonderful! He is patient, encouraging, and very knowledgeable. We have gone from not being able to know how to hold the racquet to now working on the finer points of ball placement, spin, form, and doing long rallies. We cannot say enough great things about Scott and his ability to coach us well. Thank you Scott!
Scott is simply the best!! We have progressed so quickly in the short time he has been instructing us!! His positive feedback has been such a great motivator for us. We cannot say enough great things about this instructor. He is an extraordinary person, and we are so glad we are taking lessons from him!
What improvement we have seen in 3 lessons with Scott! He has been both patient and very positive. He is always encouraging us. It is a pleasure to have him as our instructor! Thank you Scott!!
