    She is a motivated and passionate tennis coach player and I was really engaged and impressed with her skills and patience during my tennis lessons. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking forward to play tennis in New York City.

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

I am always look forward to meeting new people! 

First, I will ask you to tell me a little bit about your tennis experience. Then, I like to start with the warm up so I can observe your technique and analyze your mistakes.  

After 5 minutes of mini tennis, I like to move to the baseline to continue the warm up. During the lessons, we will talk about some feedback on your game and then I usually let you decide on what we are going to work on for the rest of the time.

Moving forward, I will go through detailed explanation of 'your problem' and what we are going to do in order to fix it. I will provide you with an exact plan of how the lesson is going to look like for the rest of the time and 3 drills that will help you to improve your game. Starting with static drills and adding a progression with each new drill. 

Finishing up with a fun game or a cool down hitting. Leaving last 5 mins for a ball clean up and discussing what worked and what did not.

I hope to see you on the court soon!

How did you get started teaching?

I always loved tennis and teaching. As a little kid I was dreaming of becoming a teacher.  I was only 13 years old when I gave my first private lesson. I loved teaching right away and began working as a tennis coach every summer while still in school. After  graduating, I got certified and now I teach full time. I really enjoy meeting new people and seeing how my tennis knowledge could help my students  improve is the greatest joy! 

What types of students have you worked with?

I currently work with adults and children -- all ages and all levels. 

Services include: technique working, tactics working both singles and doubles, tournament training and help with planning tournament calendar, athletic training;planning both tennis training and physical training

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, I had a chance to meet and have a little chat with  my idol -- Maria Sharapova. That was truly a dream come true!

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

Regardless of your level, I can help you improve your game so please dont hesitate to ask any questions! 

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

Please think of your streights and weaknesses and let me know what areas of your game  you would like to improve on
