About Me

Hi, my name is Thomas. I have been playing tennis since I was 5! I’ve spent 3 summers coaching tennis to people of all ages and skill levels at a country club and given private lessons on my own since. I was a 4 year varsity high school player, 2 year captain, and competed at the Wisconsin State High School Tennis Championships twice, finishing in the top 8 my senior year.

Teaching Style

I am willing to structure lessons in any way the student likes! Generally I begin with work on fundamentals before transitioning into games and match play.

Clara F. - August 2, 2020

I enjoyed my lessons with Thomas! I was a total beginner and Thomas helped me practice and build basic and foundational techniques. He's very patient, easygoing, and organized (on scheduling). I definitely recommend Thomas if you'd like to improve your tennis skills!

My 9-year-old loves his lesson with Thomas. He is patient, knows how to connect and get the kid moving and having fun during the lesson. My son really enjoy his tennis lessons!

Very professional, cheerful, absolutely wonderful with my two young boys. Thank you! Would definitely hire again!

Sophie W. - September 29, 2021

Thomas is great! I had not picked up a tennis racquet before starting lessons with him and I have learned so much in the first few lessons. Thomas is super nice, very patient, organized and keeps the lesson really fun. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a friendly and all around great instructor!

Clara V. - September 29, 2021

Thomas was a great instructor. He helped us improve many elements of our game and we both feel way more confident when we play. He was also really flexible with our difficult schedule and was responsive to texts when we had to reschedule. Highly recommend lessons with Thomas!

Emily M. - September 29, 2021

Thomas is a great instructor. He’s very patient and encouraging, and focuses on helping me get the technique right. Our lessons centre on learning by doing, which is more fun since we spend time actually playing/practising.

I’d recommend him to all newbies including those who’ve never held a racket before (like me).

Swati K. - July 24, 2020

I’ve enjoyed starting my Tennis journey with Thomas. He shows great patience and seems able to tailor lessons to fit the needs of his students at all levels. His personality is also inviting, friendly and encouraging so that I look forward to our lessons even if I’m in a slump at work or with my groundstrokes. Highly recommend!

Laura - September 29, 2021

My boyfriend and I started taking lessons with Thomas a few months ago and we’ve been so glad we did! We both came in as total beginners and Thomas has helped us improve so much incredibly quickly. He’s super positive and fun as an instructor while also being really professional and helpful. We highly recommend lessons with Thomas!

The best tennis instructor I’ve ever had! Experienced. Fun. Encouraging. Clear instructions. My tennis has improved greatly!

Nancy - September 29, 2021

Very thorough and well skilled in coaching. Thomas is highly encouraging and makes the lessons fun. I feel I learned a lot on the proper form on how to play tennis as an adult beginner.

Aimee - September 29, 2021

I am taking lessons with Thomas and the experience is 5 stars. He provides excellent and supportive coaching. His enthusiasm and energy at the lessons are inspiring. I am at a very beginner level and he has taught me so much about form and getting comfortable on the court. On top of it, he provides a great workout! His flexibility with scheduling lessons is a big plus.

Aimee C. - September 29, 2021

Tom is a great tennis coach. He explains all playing techniques in detail and is very patient during practice. I’m so happy that I trained with him, I feel I am so much better at my game already. I’d recommend him to all beginners especially those starting late!

Swati - September 29, 2021

I had an excellent experience with Thomas. He was an enthusiastic and patient coach and really helped me identify where my game needed to improve. He worked diligently with me to improve my serve and get my feet moving, so that by the end of our time together, I felt a lot more confident getting out on the court. Highly recommend working with Thomas if you're a beginner and looking for meaningful improvement of your tennis skills. I hope to take more lessons from him once the weather improves again.

Cori K. - September 29, 2021

Thomas is an excellent tennis instructor. My adult son and I, both beginners, took lessons together from him and we’ve both improved dramatically. Learning correct grips and form as well as practicing with Thomas has made a big difference in our playing. Thomas is very professional, knowledgeable, patient as well as personable. He also made our lessons enjoyable and fun. I highly recommend him

Armida B. - December 10, 2021

Thomas is a great communicator in and off the court. I found his instruction helpful and as such I feel more confident when I play. He is also highly dependable and access to excellent courts!
