Whether you want to make your high school or summer league team, or want to develop your game, I can help you reach your maximum potential. I teach basic fundamentals and simple tennis mechanics. Doesn't matter if you play competitively or recreationally, taking private lessons will make you improve.
What I enjoy about teaching is passing on your love of the game to someone else.
Whether it is stroke production, fundamentals, strategy, or learning the mental part of the game, teaching tennis to my students has been a fun and learning experience.

When I work with a student, I assess their skill level by doing simple drills; hand, racquet, live hits, etc. From day one after an evaluation, we get to work. I stress good fundamentals so we work a lot on the basic mechanics to develop smooth consistent strokes to establish consistent play.
As a junior player I had a Norcal Junior Ranking of #135 and played #1 on my High School Tennis team. (Pioneer High School Boys (14-6))
I went to Sonoma State University and played NCAA Division II Tennis . (Singles #6 & Doubles #1)
During my time there, I played local Open Tournaments and had a Norcal Men's Division Ranking. (Singles #134, Doubles #50).
Teaching at Pioneer High School, we have three Division Championships; Boy's Santa Teresa Division Champs 2017, Girl's Santa Teresa Division Champs 2017, Girl's Individual Blossom Valley Athletic League Champion.
My lessons are one hour long. Pricing we can discuss.
After graduating from SSU, I went back to my high school to teach tennis. I furthered my teaching by working at Long's Tennis Academy as an Assistant, 10 & Under Instructor, and an Adult Instructor.
I work will 10 and Unders, Middle Schoolers, High Schoolers, and College players.
In the 2017 High School Tennis Season, Pioneer's Girl's and Boy's Tennis team came in first place. We have one player going to CCS representing Pioneer High School.
Make sure they're familiar with the game and if they say they are "Pro", look them up lol.
No question is off limits. I encourage my students to converse with me about their strokes. I want my students to understand what they are doing and know the reason behind my teachings. Just in case a "bad day" happens, they can problem solve and work through it.
