About this pro

As a former varsity tennis player at Cherry Creek High School, I have been sharing my passion for tennis with younger kids for over eight years of coaching experience. My coaching development began as a camp counselor at the Jewish Community Center Summer Tennis Camps. Currently, I organize my own tennis camps and offer private tennis lessons for all ages and all levels, though my specialty is spreading joy to younger kids just getting into the sport. I take pride in the creativity of my lessons and the innovative ways through which I develop essential skills for players, while promoting an early love for this lifelong sport.

FAQs


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

My approach is different for every skill level and age, but generally for beginners and younger children I begin with footwork games and coordination exercises to help them develop a natural feel for athleticism, while incoroproating the mechanics of different shots into each lesson through a variety of drills and games. As for intermediate, advanced players I begin by assessing their strokes and addressing their needs for the growth of their game.


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

I have eight years experience of coaching and varsity playing experience at Cherry Creek High School. Currently, I am a student at CU Boulder studying Chemical Engineering. My education has developed an engineering mindset through which I generate the creativity of my lessons.

$20/hr for beginners. $30/hr for intermediate, advanced.

I've worked with all levels and all ages, though the majority of my work has been with beginner, intermediate kids aged 5-12.
