About this pro

Hello!

My name is Josh, I am a tennis coach and player who plays competitive tennis very often. I am also a college student who is very willing to tutor! I have been coaching for over a year and am able to speak fluent English and Indonesian, with a bit of Chinese. I am a 5.0 to 5.5 NTRP with about 10 UTR. My main objective is to help my student significantly improve their overall game as well as having them enjoy and spread the love of tennis. As for my studies, I graduated High School with 10 IGCSE Distinctions, and 3 A-Level Distinctions. I was a 4.0 GPA student in High School, currently in my first college semester. I love kids, teens, and would love to work with adults and seniors!

I have insane love for tennis, both playing and coaching. My ultimate passion. I also love teaching/tutoring, because I always find a way to connect with anyone and I love sharing my knowledge! It's not about the money is rule #1!

    I was extremely clueless about tennis before meeting him, and now I'm playing Open tournaments, all in less than a year. I wish I met him earlier. I'm not the type of person to give recommendations, but I always recommend him to my friends and colleagues. No matter your level and goal, he's there to help you.

  • Vicky Ng

    He’s really friendly and helpful. I got into the tennis team thanks to him although I’m a beginner. Highly recommended!

  • Ella Phung

    He’s patient, funny, and nice. He helped me improve a lot



FAQs


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

When working with a new student, I always try to get to know the student first before anything else, understand what their hobbies are and their dislikes too. From there I can start working on their tennis, because then I'll understand what actually motivates them, whether they like tennis or not, etc! My first lesson will just be to see their capabilities, their strength and weaknesses in their game. As for tutoring, I'll always start immediately with their worksheets, homeworks, or if they don't have any, I'll start with a small lecture!


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

I play tennis 6 times a week (20 hours per week of tennis and 10 physical training hours). I have been playing tennis since the age of 9 and have played tons of tennis tournaments. My dream is to be a professional tennis player. As for teaching, this year is my first college semester. I have been tutoring in high school for about 2 years, helping my schoolmates get amazing grades. I have a 4.0 high school GPA and graduated with 10 IGCSE distinctions as well as 3 A-Level distinctions!


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

I would normally charge a higher price if it is a group lesson or if I have to travel.


How did you get started teaching?

I have always been a huge fan of coaching and teaching tennis, but my first student came from a buying-selling business, actually! My first school student was a classmate of mine, and somehow I discovered that I really loved teaching!


What types of students have you worked with?

Kids, teens, adults, as well as seniors. All of different personalities.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

US Open 2018 - Djokovic #14!


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

I think I would tell them to look for someone who loves what they're doing and someone who is patient. Different personalities may not be easy to handle, so having patience as a tennis coach is very important. I also think that they need to be able to be a good role model, showing good technique and mentality towards the game and/or student. I would not hire someone who has awful technique because they probably won't be able to guide me to a high level (probably only to a mid level, or even stuck at the beginners level). Same goes for a tutor, I think huge amounts of patience is definitely required, along with a very sufficient and above average knowledge in order to be able to always help students learn more!


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

Students shouldn't think too much of what they need. If a question pops up, ask! A teacher/coach should be willing to help out with whatever they have.
