About this pro

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.

    We have been looking for a Tennis coach for a while and we are so glad we found Paul. He is a great coach. He is very patient in teaching and corrects your technique and posture in evey step of your learning. He tailors the lessons based on your level and you can really feel your progress every session. He tries several options to find what works best for you. Really enjoying our classes with him.

    Paul is super friendly and has lots of patience and is very flexible with cadence of lessons. I've been able to quickly pick tennis back up after having learnt a little as a kid, and learning with Paul has been a distinctly better experience than my childhood memories.

    Paul Dulac is not only a highly skilled player, but an amazing instructor. Those 2 things do not always go hand in hand! I'm a beginner in tennis. Paul has exceptional attention to detail, coupled with encouragement and specific instructions which are wisely delivered in stages. He doesn't overwhelm. I highly recommend Paul!

  • Carlos M. Burlingame, CA

    Paul is a phenomenal teacher! He provides clear feedback, while still encouraging you. I've noticed a vast improvement in just a few weeks!

From there, I will propose a plan to help him improve his/her game.
