About Me

Hello, my name is Veronic. I'm a 5.5-6.0++ player and a USPTA certified prof. coach. I'm also a multilingual, graduate student( I have a minor, BA, Master and PhD is my next goal( I currently teach kids at a school ) and an ex-ballet dancer. I love fitness, organic food ,and my favorite sport is gymnastics , ballet, and tennis. My favorite sport is -- parkour, ballet and shaolin philosophy and tennis of course . When it comes to tennis it is all about fitness, agility, and a great technique. Personally, I'm very nice, caring , gentle, sincere, wise and patient with excellent communication skills.
About Tennis- you will learn any style you like, use spin, slices, and every eclectic skills out there, and if you like hitting sessions only you are welcome to do so.
Teaching philosophy: I do not like to talk much during the session but I emphasize a lot on the technique and repetition to be able to improve in the right way-- and after finishing the lessons, the students will have an idea on what they need to do to become advanced or professional players, or what are their strengths and weaknesses from which they will be able to diagnose their own game and be target specific..

Personality:No drugs, drinking , smoking or bad habits( but addicted to desserts-- hahaha...)
Anti-violence, guns, trophy hunting and GMOs
* Very open- minded and LGBTQ friendly
I teach sports( tennis, table tennis, Futsal, and track and field) at a school in San Francisco
I have been teaching tennis for 6 years

* N.B. My texting skills are not great, below average, so please be patient ( and understanding) when we communicate through texts. I'm a real classic...
Thank you and have a wonderful day,
Sincerely your,
Veronic

Teaching Style

I stress on fitness. When learning tennis, practice makes perfect. My style is very similar to Roger Federer --in that-- it is all about fluidity and producing shots effortlessly without injuring yourself or muscling around.
1- examining your game and physical ability
2-testing your areas-- to see your weaknesses and strengths
3- correcting your errors,including technique correctness
4- structuring plans around your style
5- rallying at the end of the session
6- learning while having fun

Student Feedback

I played tennis but became quite rusty since I've not played it for years. I took Veronique's class in the hope to improve my tennis skills.

Classes were very effective for me and Veronique had helped me improve my tennis in many ways. He is very patient and made improvements suggestions on my existing style. Along the way, he had been encouraging to me and I saw noticeable improvements from the classes!

Veronique was very professional and skilled in talking me through the proper way to hold my racquet as well as guiding my hand through to the completion of the swing. She also gave me info re obtaining a a racquet that would be a better fit for my hand.

Her patience also went a long way helping me to focus on the lesson.

Sincerely,

Patricia Howard

Veronique is a great teacher - enthusiastic and encouraging, as well as very skilled and and with a great level of attention to detail. I started my lessons with next to no previous experience, and my lessons have focused on developing my basic techniques and introduction to the game. Each lesson I feel myself improving and I really appreciate Veronique's close attention to aiming for the highest standards of style and form right from the beginning. It's great to have little drills to practice on my own and Veronique is very patient, but also makes it very fun. I really look forward to my lessons and am quickly falling in love with tennis! I'd highly recommend Veronique as a teacher!

Great class! It was quite intense and packed with lots of advice that I still need to process and internalize. Overall, an amazing experience and great opportunity to play and enjoy tennis.

Veronique is so dedicated to the sport, great with technique and gentle with the kids. Our family has been taking lessons from her and are very much enjoying them - we are all getting so much better than what we started 3 classes ago!!
