About Me

Hi, my name is Toni. Teaching tennis is so much fun for me! I have played almost 20 years and started teaching eight years ago. I have a masters degree in education including preschool and I love to see my students smiling, having fun and improving fast.

Teaching Style

I like to work at a pace that is comfortable for each individual. My teaching style involves breaking down each stroke in a way that makes it easy to understand and execute. I work mostly with beginners and intermediate level students. The age 4-5 y. old is a great time to start out kids with tennis and in a short time you can learn basic strokes very well. Having fun, playing well and feeling great is what I am looking for on the court!

Student Feedback

The lessons I had with Toni has been great and very helpful in improving the way I play tennis. Toni was nothing but great all throughout. He was also very flexible with time. He surely knows what he is doing.

I would like to recommend Tony as the best tennis teacher I ever have. He
teaches the technique and the correct way to execute the stroke. I
appreciate his teaching very much. I have never know that is the way to
hit the ball!

Now I can truly improve my skill.

He can instantly see what you are doing wrong and start giving great instruction. I could feel myself improving in just the first lesson. He pays attention to small details that can make a big difference. Anyone at any level would benefit from a session with Toni.

Toni was a great find! He was an excellent tennis coach and truly taught us about the game of tennis. My sister and I started with Toni as brand new beginners and we both felt that he taught us excellent technique and truly gave us an appreciation for the game. Toni's lessons were the perfect blend of technique and fun. I looked forward to going every week. My skills improved greatly after working with him. Toni is extremely friendly and helpful and was a true pleasure to work with. Had we continued to live in Chicago, we would still be working with him! Highly recommend!!

Toni is an excellent tennis instructor who has really helped me improve my game. He is very knowledgeable and detail-focused. In our first couple lessons he pointed out improvements to my form and technique that immediately improved my game, and that no other instructor had ever commented on. He is rigorous and fun at the same time, and I highly recommend him.
