About this pro

I'm a USPTA certified tennis professional with over 15 years of tennis experience along with a masters degree in sports and exercise science from UCF. I've trained players of all ages and currently serve as the assistant tennis coach at East Orange Tennis Academy. I bring a fun and insightful approach to my lessons, and I love relating my own past playing experience with my players. I provide all the great training tools such as court dots, agility cones, targets and much more to get the most out of each player. 

I have a passion for competition and putting out your best effort. Tennis is a lifelong game that can be played by anyone at different intensities, and that's all really up to the work you want to put in!

FAQs


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

I go through a overall evaluation the first lesson to get a better understand of the students skill level and needs. After that we progress and work on whatever the student would like to focus and improve on. I like to use a combination of drills and live action point play in order to get the best results!


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

Masters Degree in Sports and Exercise Science from UCF

USPTA professionally certified 

Assistant coach at East Orange Tennis Academy 


How did you get started teaching?

I've always loved sports and fell in love with tennis right before entering highschool. I had a bad coach in soccer while on my middle school team and that forced me to quit. I want to not only improve my players on the court but who they are as an individual. I want to be the exact opposite of that bad coach I once had and I look to get the best out of each of my students. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with a wide range of ages and skill levels, including complete beginners (both kids and adults) and tournament level juniors.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I gave a student of mine a couple forehand tips before a match recently, and the next time I saw her she was so excited to tell me how she won and how much my tips helped her!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a coach who listens to you and isn't just looking to teach you the "one and only way". There's many different coaching styles and techniques, the trick is to find what works for each individual!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Student's should think about what has or hasn't worked for them in the past or what they've noticed while playing. Sometime's the issue is so obvious that a student has looked right past it, so it's best to think back from past experience.
