About this pro

A passionate lover and professional teacher of tennis, I have taught tennis since the age of 16, after falling in love and becoming obsessed with the game at the age of 11.  After graduating from Florida Atlantic University where I played tennis and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management, I was certified as an Elite Professional with the United States Professional Tennis Association.

I developed and implemented a result oriented teaching style that inspires participation in tennis, makes improvement fun and attainable for all levels and skills.

FAQs


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

After meeting and speaking with the student to find out what is important to them- technique, tactics, exercise, social, I can then propose an immediate lesson plan to meet those goals.


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

I have been certified as an ELite Professional with the United States Professional Tennis Association since 1997.   I have taught tennis to all levels and skill levels for over 25 years.  I have an unique results-orientated teaching style.  That matches fun with improving!


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Group lessons can range from $20-$40 per hour.

Private Lessons are $80 per hour or $40 per half hour.

What you learn in one lesson with me is worth a life time of lessons with other pros.


How did you get started teaching?

Feel in love with the game.  Played it my whole life.  Was around the courts daily.   Started teaching as soon as I was invited to do so at the age of 16.


What types of students have you worked with?

juniors, adults, seniors

beginners, intermediate, advanced

competitive players, college players 

handicapped 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have had the great fortune of travelling the world to see the best in the world at the most prestigious tournaments in the world.   Australian, Roland Garros, Wimbledon, US Open,  and Indian Wells and the Miami Open, Davis Cup and Fed Cup and countless smaller tournaments across the country.

Don't ask me which one is my favorite!  I adore them all for their unique offerings and experiences.

Monte Carlos and Cincinnati are next on the to do list.


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

Don't be shy to ask questions before booking the lesson.

Often, professionals, have a one size fits all lesson plan and they want to keep you in lessons for the duration without exposing you to additional programming that will move your development along more rapidly.

Tell the professional what you are interested in:  technique, tactics, exercise or socialization.   Tell them your level and ask them what kind of lesson play they would develop for you on your first lesson.    

An experienced professional should have the answers for you 


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

1.  ask for a lesson plan

2.  ask how long before they will have you playing with other players

3.  if you are a beginner, ask them how long before you will be able to start enjoying the game at the beginner level
