I have developed players that have gone as far as professional tennis (top 100 in the world). I teach both juniors and adults. My youngest student is 4, my oldest is 82. I like the challenge of teachibg anyone including those with disabilities.

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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
US open championships in New York City.
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.
Know what your goals for tennis are. No question is out of bounds. Don't limit yourself. Out are capable of reaching greater heights
