My name is Nick and I am an experienced tennis instructor with over five years of coaching experience. I coach junior and adult clinics and have been doing private and semi-private lessons for the past three years. I have a B.S. in sport management in the parks, recreation and tourism management from North Carolina State University and specialized in tennis instruction and teaching for my internship upon graduating in the program. I am looking to help any tennis players interested in the Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham and Wake Forest areas with an excitement for tennis. I am flexible on weekdays and weekends and am happy to work around your schedule. I appreciate your time and effort and am excited to help your tennis game and fitness improve today.My teaching philosophy is to find a love and passion for the game first, and then gain the necessary fundamental skills and abilities around your passion. If you can find both, you can be a great. The areas of tennis instruction that I focus on with my players includes all the various handle grips, footwork and agility, court knowledge and presence, conditioning, groundstrokes, net game and volleys, serving and having fun and enjoying the game of tennis. I structure my lessons with a dynamic warm up and stretching, followed by groundstroke work emphasizing forehands and backhands, footwork and movement. Then I finish up with serving and net game followed by a cool down and stretch.
