USTA Certified Tennis Instructor--I teach all age groups from 5 years old to 80+!

To complement my techniques I use a tennis ball machine and I teach in 1.5 hour blocks for one of the lowest fees in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I can travel within a 25-30 mile radius for an additional $10 and still stay as one of the most affordable rates in the area. In addition to tennis I include nutrition and fitness conditioning to my program.

When you sign up for my classes, you'll not only learn the game but to be fit as well!

I started seeing a ton of progress after just a few lessons with Rafa. Weve worked on many different shots, as well as strategy, best practices, footwork, and fitness during our lessons. After less than 10 lessons, I feel much more confident and consistent, as well as optimistic that my game will continue to improve. Rafas also been very flexible with his schedule and always arrives on time or early to our lessons. Highly recommended if you want to make great strides in your game!

Frequently asked questions

I assess their abilities (hand-eye coordination, athleticism, etc) then go from there. 

Each student is different therefore I employ a customized approach.

I am a USTA Certified Instructor plus I have over 30 years of playing and coaching experience

I charge per 1.5 hour block instead of the usual 1 hour.

1 hour is too short to learn anything significant, plus I firmly believe in teaching rather than focusing on the money I can make per hour.

I started when I was in the military--I taught many varied groups and went from there.

I have taught all ages from 5 years old to 80+

Coaching high school teams and making the league play off...twice back to back

Look for someone who is passionate and who focuses on the student's well being and progress rather than someone who's in it for the money

Consider the teaching methodology and someone who uses advanced technology to accelerate the learning process
