    Alex is great! This was one of the best lessons I’ve had. He’s patient, but challenged me. I feel like my technique improved in just one hour.



FAQs


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

First, I evaluate their age and skill level to decide what type of balls and rackets they should be using. Based on this, I ask them questions about thier goals to follow the corrcect training philosphy to keep them interested in the sport while making sure they are improving. 

My lessons are based largely on techinical instruction for younger players because those who can develop the fundamentals, tend to improve much quicker and really begin to enjoy the game. For older more advanced players, it still follows daily techincal instruction but mixed with tactical play to help improve their match play. 

For adults, I make sure I listen to their needs and base my teaching style on that. 

I can work with any age and level of player.
