About this pro

I have 10+ years of coaching experience, I have taught at world renowned tennis academies, and played NCAA college tennis. 

Experienced Coaching - More than 10 years of coaching experience. I have coached tennis at IMG Tennis Academy, home of Maria Sharapova, Andre Agassi, and Serena Williams and at 4-Star Tennis Academy in Virginia. 

I coach all ages and all levels. As a former NCAA college tennis player, I have experience with the college recruiting process if you're interested in playing college tennis. I've also taught small children, beginners, intermediate players, and adults. 

I love to see my students progress and reach their goals. I have studied tennis technique, strength and conditioning, pedagogy, and sports psychology to ensure that all my students receive a personalized training. 

In addition, I have a Master's degree in Education from UNC-Chapel Hill, a BS in Sport Management, and a minor in Strength and Conditioning.

FAQs


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

We will work on improving your strokes, fitness, and strategy. Do you want a more consistent baseline game? A stronger serve? A killer forehand? I will personalize your lesson plan to meet your needs as a player, starting with a comprehensive evaluation of your technique and mobility.

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

My rate is $60/hour but I’m open to provide discounts if you purchase 3 or more lessons. 


How did you get started teaching?

I’ve been teaching tennis since I was 15 years old at local summer camps. I perfected my coaching approach as I worked with several tennis camps and academies until I ended up coaching at IMG Academy, one of the top tennis academies in the world where Andre Agassi, Maria Sharapova, Kei Nishikori, and Serena Williams trained.


What types of students have you worked with?

I’ve worked with all types of students. Whether this is your first time picking up a racquet, looking to be the top player at your high school team, or simply looking to improve your USTA rating, I’d be happy to work with you to achieve your goals.


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

I recommend looking for experienced coaches that have been top players themselves. Coaching experience is one of the most important factors in determining a player's success. In addition, top players will be able to analyze your game and fix any fundamental issues much quicker than other coaches. 


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

Although having fun is a big priority, I would emphasize having a clear set of goals. Once you determine your tennis goals, we can determine a training regime that meets your needs as a player. Don’t have any goals in mind? We can start with a few lessons and develop these goals as we go along.
