About this pro

I lead with a player's philosophy coaching style rather than a coach's philosophy style. This means that I am student-oriented in my coaching versus expecting them to conform to a rigid style.

I teach at the student's pace while providing both a workout and fun time.

I enjoy giving athletes the opportunity to discover something about themselves they never knew existed. To be able to open the door that was never there and helping athletes walk through that door is most humbling.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I always seek to understand the student and what they are looking to accomplish. The first few meetings are all about getting on the same page as the student, seeing what the student strives to accomplish, and presenting them with what I am able to do for them.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am an open-level athlete that has a plethora of experience in competition, including matches against high-level college athletes and professional athletes. As a local to Southern California, I have had the opportunity to train and compete with the most competitive region for tennis in the country, if not the world.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I have two pricing levels, depending on the level of commitment:

1) $50 per session if student is looking to train once or twice a week.

2) $750 per month if student is looking to train 4+ days a week.

How did you get started teaching?

I got a start in teaching as a student in high school. It started off with helping my peers with their language and history homework, and I noticed I possess a passion for helping others. It translated eventually into my expertise and field of experience, which is tennis.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students through different walks of life. I have worked with students that are starting out in the game and never touched a racket, to students that compete frequently in the junior divisions.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a coach that possesses the following traits:

1) Believes in you more than you believe in yourself.

2) Is both knowledgable and personable, not just one or the other.

3) Someone you enjoy being around and see as a friend/mentor rather than someone who merely gives lessons.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Be very clear about what you seek, and be transparent with your goals and ambitions. The partnerships will always work out better when the students trust the coaches and the coaches can figure out what to do.
