Hi, I am Paul. I have been teaching tennis for the last 15 years in the bay area. I am a part-time tennis professional for the city of San Mateo where I teach the adult clinics three nights a week.
I am as well an active player on the Norcal circuit reaching the sectionals level for the last four years which makes me one of the best players in the circuit. I just qualify to represent NorCal to nationals in October 2019!
Additionally, I have been a middle school teacher in one of the top private school in Palo Alto for the last 22 years. This background in education and pedagogy allow me to help kids and adults fulfill their potential.
I teach in one of the nicest and safest locations in the San Mateo area where parents can relax while their kids are having their lessons.
I also teach in the Palo Alto area.
I enjoy so much to see my clients fulfill their potential and becoming better tennis players.
I like Coach Paul very much! My colleague is studying tennis from him and he referred him to me. Coach Paul is very experienced and professional. I had played tennis for a while and Paul was my first coach. He taught me the basics and I could feel the improvement instantly. He corrected a lot of my swinging and movements. Also I like single-handed backhand and Coach Paul is so good at it. Definitely recommend Coach Paul if you are looking for a good tennis coach!
I assess my new client by asking a few questions about his tennis background. Then we rally for a few minutes. I film these few first minutes to allow me to use this video to illustrate the comments that I will make after these first few minutes of hitting together. From there, I will propose a plan to help him improve his/her game.
I am a PTR certified professional and I am also certified by the French Tennis Federation.
My hourly rate is $80 for a private lesson with one person and $45 a person for a group of two or more.
I started coaching in college in France. I taught in many clubs in France and Spain. Then I moved to the bay area where I have been coaching for the last 14 years.
I have worked with all kind all students. Basically, from kids aged 5 to adults 80 years old and over!
My recent victory to sectionals in July 2019 which allows me to represent NorCal to nationals in October 2019.
To look really for a coach that have the certifications and still is an active player!
What is the part of your game that you want to improve absolutely?
