I began playing tennis at the age of 7. I began competing in ITF Junior tournaments at the age of 14. I moved here from Russia 10 years ago and I have spent the past 8 years at private clubs teaching all levels and ages. I am a director at a club during the summers as well. I love tennis and share my enthusiasm and joy of the game with my clients. I speak fluent English and Russian.
I like all aspects of my work. Spending time outside playing my favorite game and seeing others improve and watching their confidence on the court grow.

Each student is different and comes to the court with various strokes they'd like to work on. I always talk to each client first and assess what they'd like to work on and go from there. It is not a one lesson type fits all.
Played and competed in tournaments for many years as well as attended the University of Physical Education in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
90 dollars per hour on any courts located close to my home. Or 100 dollars if the clients want to play on the Clay Courts at The Fountains Country Club in Lake Worth. If the client wants me to travel to meet them we would need to discuss the terms.
I played numerous matches with members at private clubs until one of the directors saw me play and offered me a job when he had a position open up.
All Ages, all levels as well as private lessons to large groups.
My favorite event is one we have at our club each summer. Its called the Triathlon. It consists of about 80 kids split into 10 teams. They compete in sailing, golf, and tennis. We run a round robin on 5 courts and each team competes against the other. Two hours of mayhem and fun!
Do not give up if you have a bad experience. There are a lot of great coaches out there who will help you improve and enjoy every minute on the court.
Think about specifics you want to work on and be clear with the instructor. If you are just there for excercise and a fun hit be sure to tell the coach that so you really get to move around rather than discussing details or strategy etc.
