I love introducing people to the greatest sport on earth, Tennis. Watching my students improve and enjoy the experience has always been my objective. I am passionate about teaching my students, I really care. I am proud to say many of my students have become life long players. Tennis has given me so much, I have met many people, made a living to take care of my wife and two children. I enjoy watching students improve and get excited about learning. I have a great job.
When you work w/ someone who has passion for the game, it drives you! I’m a serve & volley-er for life! Get some training, it will help your game!
I had the privilege of meeting and training with Mark (a bit before Method Tennis was born) when I was 16 years old and all the way through college. What stands out to me over the years isn't the repetition of groundstrokes, the footwork or the tireless instruction on the fundamentals of tennis. Those lessons were all first class and gave me the tools needed for a lifetime in the sport. What really stands out to me over the years is the devotion and respect that Mark gives to his students as individuals. At times it all just feels like tennis... But then there are days when you realize the lessons you've learned are much more valuable and meaningful than that. I would never hesitate to recommend Method Tennis and the programs they offer. I still use the lessons and skills they taught in my career as a Sports Medicine Physical Therapist today.
VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PROFESSIONAL!
I make sure my student is relaxed and comfortable, people absorb more when they are calm. I help them be effective and enjoy learning. Modern teaching techniques makes learning easier.
I had elite tennis training, I was a student of Sven Davidson, an International Tennis Hall Of Fame inductee. I also had training from Curt Condon in Arcadia California. I have over 35 years of teaching professionally. I am a certified professional with a proven track record. I have trained ranked players from around the world. My highest ranked player was top 500 in the WTA. I Captained USA Junior teams for 36 consecutive seasons.
A single one hour private lesson is $70. I offer a discounted rate on series of five, $300.
I started at San Marino tennis club in 1979. As an apprentice to Ted Eiesenhart. While playing for coach Tarkanian at Pasadena City College.
I have taught a variety of students all ages and levels. Over 35 years of teaching experience.
Giving my 2 year old grandson his first babolat baby racket. My son and daughter keeping tennis in their lives, makes me so proud and happy. I get phone calls and texts thanking me for being their teacher, sometimes from students long ago. I will say I take great personal pride in my students and my custom racket service. I care and it shows.
Look for a proven track record, experience means a great deal. The teacher must be patient and dedicated. Have a reputation as a great motivator and role model. A gentle instructor with great communication skills.
Do they really want to learn the greatest sport on earth? Can they devote the time and energy to learn, from a professional. Tennis is an expensive sport, proper training, equipment like tennis balls, rackets, stringing, clothing, and transport, I know this as my family spent a fortune for my development for me to become the professional I am today. I say this to be honest and be upfront. If you chose to start your training, I promise you, you will be glad you did. Don't be fearful to begin, you will be surprised how quickly you will learn.
