My name is Tomas and I'm a full-time coach/hitting partner in Newport Beach, California. I grew up in Santiago, Chile and began competing in USTA tournaments at the age of eight. As a senior in high school, I reached a high ranking of #15 in Southern California (tennisrecruiting.net) and earned scholarships to Eastern Washington (DI) and Azusa Pacific University (DII). I continue to compete in Men's Open tournaments across Southern California.
As a coach/hitting partner, I've had the pleasure to work with tens of juniors of every skill level and aspiration, and whom I have helped improve and achieve their short/long-term goals. Having the opportunity to guide players, share their ongoing process, and help them achieve their goals is always a remarkable experience.
My method is based on working with the student’s goals for the distant future and then working backward to the present. We establish priorities, develop routines, and practices that reinforce an incredible work ethic, preparation, and constant monitoring. I believe there is a direct correlation between planning, work, and achievement. The best way to help players reach their goal is to be organized with a deep respect for quality, total attention to the student’s personal needs and an unrelenting commitment to continuously help players improve.

He is great at teaching, very precise about the details. I even joined the junior varsity team because of him.
I hosted in my home a 16 year old female tennis player from Paris My student studied with Tomas 3 times a week at both Mariner's Park and Newport Beach High School tennis courts. I had ample time to closely observe Tomas's tennis lessons. He is an excellent coach and he was always on time or early to all the lessons and concentrated all his attention on his student. He had challenging practice exercises each day and my student greatly improved her tennis game.
She really enjoyed her practice sessions with Tomas and I highly recommend him to new and returning students. Thank you, Mary M
I did three tennis lessons with Tomas and i enjoyed them. He helped with all my tennis game, but especially with my forehand and my serve. Although my time was limited, I think that i improved my tennis with all the exercises he made me do. I look forward to my three additional lessons before I go back to France.
Very professional and patient. I like his style of teaching.
He found my 20 yrs problem and knows how to correct it. Through 2hrs practice
I did make some progress.
