FAQs


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

Start with basics. Ask the student what they are really looking for (I want to be able to beat my friends, my friends are good, I want to catch up etc).

Teaching fundamentals and proper technique a must for me.


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

I am a Certified professional by United States Professional Teachers Association (USPTA). USPTA requires member professionals to keep up with the ever changing tennis teaching methods of today by doing continued education.  We get credit points for continued education every 2 years (one must accumulate 20or more credits in a two year period)


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

My students pay $130  for 4 half hour lessons ($240 for 4 one hour). If you just want to commit to just one at a time, it's $70 per hour.


How did you get started teaching?

I played junior tournament tennis then college and briefly in the professional circuit.  I got certified to teach and made a profession out of it. I have been teaching for 20 years now.


What types of students have you worked with?

I worked with juniors from age 4 to adults (my oldest is 82). Some of my students have reached the professional tennis level (top 100 in the world).  A lot played or currently play college tennis.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

US open championships in New York City.


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

In metro Atlanta, we have approximately 10,000 teaching pros (tennis). The most anywhere in the world.  Naturally, of those 10,000 there are lot of knowledgeable and good teachers BUT also not so great ones.  It's always hard for students to know that, so I advise that you demand professionalism from your teacher. Research about them. If they are good, they should not mind questions or proof of their abilities.


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

Know what your goals for tennis are. No question is out of bounds. Don't limit yourself. Out are capable of reaching greater heights
