About Me

Hi, My name is Todd. I've been playing tennis for almost 25 years. I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the world's best players (Martina Navratilova [no. 1], Pablo Arraya [no. 25}, Laurence Tieleman [no. 60] and others) and can pass that knowledge on to you. If you are a 3.0 to 4.5 player, I can help you improve your game through strokes, strategy and fitness.

Teaching Style

The goal is to make you a better tennis player by focusing on the fundamentals. This includes: grip, footwork, shoulder/hip turn, knee bend and follow-through. The details/intensity of each of these vary with level but are the key to becoming better. There are times when feeding balls from the basket is the best method, but mostly I do a lot of hitting WITH you so you learn in a real-life situation. If you are looking to get better, than I can most definitely help you.

Student Feedback

Todd really takes his time to understand the best solutions to improve your tennis game. He’s great at keeping you aware of your stance and racquet position and drills of hitting and controlling the ball.

I have signed up for 20 lessons in order to be more active and to improve my skills on the tennis court. I haven't really played tennis since high school (30 some years ago). So far after only two lessons I am gaining more knowledge and inspiration in my ability to play. Todd has an easy going approach and excellent communication skills. I would highly recommend Todd as a tennis coach.

I am doing six lessons with Todd before heading back home to Virginia. After three lessons, I appreciate his feedback on ground strokes and volleys. His kind disposition, friendly approach to teaching, and knowledge of techniques and skills building make him a wonderful tennis instructor.

Amazing coach! As a beginner, Todd has made a significant difference in my ability to play more strategically. I highly recommend him.

Great. Todd was able to get some basic fundamentals to me with easy to comprehensible instructions. Great at teaching proper footwork on baseline forehand and backhand strokes. Excellent teacher for volley techniques. Todd was great and I will try to use him on my next trip to Miami.

My husband and I took 6 tennis lessons from Todd and thoroughly enjoyed them! Todd is a wonderfully experienced coach and great at teaching. He is very patient and kind and also gives constructive critiques that really help. He is really knowledgable and great at demonstrating examples of how to do things correctly. He is encouraging and let's you know when you're doing well. We will definitely be taking more lessons from him. We have improved immensely and really are enjoying the game of tennis! We went from beginners to feeling really comfortable hitting back and forth with proper technique. Thank you, Todd!

Todd is a very enthusiastic and friendly teacher. And he knows his stuff too. We greatly improved in just the first lesson and will be back for more.

Great teacher, very fun yet very pricise and serious when it comes to technique. Me and my wife are having an extremely good time playing tennis with Todd and I recommend him to everyone.
