My service stands out because of my vast experience playing and teaching the game of tennis. I am a current Division 1 Tennis Player at Rider University. In high school, I played first singles all four years and won more than 75 matches. I was given the MVP award and was team captain my junior and senior years. I assisted in running my high school tennis camp for elementary to middle school aged children for four years. During my high school years, I assisted in teaching group and private lessons for my coach's clientele who ranged from toddlers to adults. Since graduating high school, I assisted in coaching the Southern Regional boys tennis team in the spring. I was offered a board approved coaching job but it interfered with my own collegiate tennis season. I was previously employed with Long Beach Island Foundation for the Arts to coach children's classes and string tennis racquets. Currenty, I coach for USA Sport Group and Trenton Country Club but I am looking to branch out and have my own clients.
I enjoy teaching the game of Tennis becasue I love the sport and love seeing my players improve. I enjoy working face to face with people and passing on the knowlege and skills I've acquired over the years.

When working with a new student, I first like to find out what they already know about Tennis and their current level of play. I will watch a new student hit forehands, backhands, volleys and serves to see if they have the correct mechanics of each stroke. Assessing a new student when I first meet them allows me to build a plan for how I am going to assit that player in improving their game.

I got started teaching when I was about 15 years old. Throughout high school, I shadowed my coach during his lessons for other clients. I learned alot from my mentor and eventually began coaching and giving private lessons on my own.
I have worked with students of all ages, ranging from toddlers to players of retirement age.
Have realistic expectations and goals for what you would like to accomplish and comminicate them with your private coach.
