I have been teaching all levels of tennis to all ages for over 25 years. I teach with positive reinforcement and encouragement. I use a variety of teaching styles to accommodate all types of students. I also am a retired high school teacher and am able to use different methods to accommodate my students.I am certified by both the USPTA and USPTR. I am continually attending workshops and classes to enhance my teaching abilities and to stay current. I have successfully coached both at the high school level and at the college level. I have many students who have successfully played at the college level. I have maintained a winning percentage of over 70%.I was a nationally ranked player in the juniors from the 12 & Under through the 18 & under. I played in college and on the pro circuit. I was the tennis director at a girls summer camp for 21 years. I have run tournaments at all levels.I have always had a passion for tennis, and believe that you don't quit tennis because you get old, you get old because you quit tennis.
