About this pro

Many of my students have come with previous experience with other coaches. The main stand out that they mention to me is that I am full of energy, tailor the drills to their needs, and most importantly - show them they can have fun while learning the game. This applies both to what students themselves express as well as parents have on behalf of their kids. 

Nothing, and I mean nothing, puts a bigger smile on my face than when I see someone who wants to have fun and learn tennis do so.

    David is very focused on my learning. He gives me feedback and is helping me improve my game quickly. Besides, he is a nice guy and it is always fun to play and learn with him. I strongly recommend David for tennis lessons.

    I had David come out and give me an introductory lesson and assessment. He was very agreeable and I thought we would work well together. From there, we scheduled regular weekly lessons. David had to reschedule our first lesson. No big deal. Stuff happens. The rescheduled lesson was to happen a few days later and we both agreed on a date and time. When I arrived at the courts, David was not there. After waiting about 20 minutes, I sent him a text, which he never responded to. I sent another one later with the same result. (He had previously answered all my texts.). This is not the type of behavior I expect from a professional tennis coach - or professional anything for that matter. He wasn't concerned with the value of my time or getting back to me at all. I am very disappointed.

    David is the perfect coach if you have little kids. He is patient and very full of energy. I wasn’t sure how he would handle my ADHD kid with a lot of energy. He was so patient and was able to talk to my son on his level. David is a super coach for kids!

  • Tina Verma

    David was a hire through lessons.com after several unfortunate encounters with different coaches. We were really happy to find someone who cared about our kid as much as David does. I really enjoy how he is able to talk to her in her own understanding and reference different ways of hitting the ball with funny words. Roo loves David and is always looking forward to lessons with him!

FAQs


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

Every first lesson will start with an assessment just to see where the student is. Easy and typical strokes such as forehand, backhand, volleys, etc. I always make sure the student is warmed up to avoid any injuries. I focus on what the student wants to improve on while also seeing what the weaknesses are. Then, I can start to help the student improve on those weaknesses while also enjoying tennis.


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

I have played tennis since I was 5 years old, now for over 20 years. For the last 8 years, I have given a lot of private and group lessons. I played throughout my entire childhood USTA up to the national level tournaments. 


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

A private lesson is $45 an hour. Semi-private is $40 per person for the hour. Group lessons are $35 per person for the hour.


How did you get started teaching?

I always loved tennis, and the thing with tennis is that its a sport that you can pass down the knowledge. I love sharing with kids and adults different ways how they can improve their game and have fun at the same time.


What types of students have you worked with?

From all age groups to all different levels. As little as 4 years old to as old as 78. From beginner, to tournament playing students. 


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

Look for a teacher that will truly fulfill your desires. While the teacher may know best, its still important to have fun. And the best way to do so is to tell the teacher what you want to improve on.
