About this pro

I really enjoy working with kids who have fun playing the game of basketball and look forward to getting better and having a fun time while doing so! I have been doing this for about a year now and I train at a local gym in South San Francisco, as well as local parks. I currently play Division II basketball at Sonoma State on a scholarship. In addition, I scored over 1500 points in my High School Varsity Career. I was also Top 3 in makes at the 3 point line in California within community colleges. I assist those who are in love, or want to fall in love with basketball, in order to develop skills within the game of basketball, which consist of shooting, ball handling, and the enjoying the game while learning the basic fundamentals! 

I enjoy helping others at things I understand and have a great knowledge and understanding for since I currently play college basketball. In addition, I enjoy the connections I can make with my clients as I am able to learn about their life, talk to them and find things we have similarly even if it's not basketball related.

    Jackie definitely takes my opinions into account when deciding on drills to work on my game. He personalized it and always checks in on how I’m feeling to make sure not to tire me out too much. He also helps to work on all aspects of my game that I ask for. He keeps every session fresh and doesn’t let it get repetitive. I definitely see a change in my game after coming to workout with Jackie.

    Very high attention to detail and great energy. Really cares about the client and truly is invested in their growth as not only a basketball player but as a person. I would highly recommend to any player,team, etc. He has also played and succeeded at an extremely high level of basketball giving his clients the blueprint for success.

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

I tend to gauge how open and comfortable my clients are at first, and get a feel for how I can make them more comfortable, yet allowing them to enjoy the workout and fall in love with basketball as the workout progresses. I then find ways to connect on a different level with them, which may be non-basketball related and connecting with them through similarities. Therefore, allowing them to gain trust in my ability to teach them, and overall gaining a deeper connection with them so that it's a fun environment to workout in.

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

I currently play basketball for Sonoma State, as well as coach for a AAU program SF champions during my off season, and have been playing college basketball now for the last three years, have receieved many awards such as First Team All-League at the High School level, and college level as well. I have also received First Team All-Academic in the State. In addition to being Top 3 in California in 3 Pointers made in one season at the Junior College level shooting at 41% for my freshman season.

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

I charge $60 per 1 on 1 private session, which consists of a 1 hour training session. Group session prices may vary depending on how many clients are attending that training session. I am always open to negotiate pricing as well.

How did you get started teaching?

I was always a self-taught player growing up, learning all the drills and moves I do on my own, and finding ways to do them on my own as well. This helped me gain leadership qualities and eventually starting to teach my clients what I've learned and taught myself over the years

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with male and female students whom are shy, outgoing, quiet, talkative, from ages 9-27, I am open to working with all types of students.

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

What they really need to work on to be able to succeed in games and when it really counts. I am a big believer in messing up during practice so that we don't mess up as much in games.
