I've been teaching tennis for more than 24 years. I've worked with every age between 3 and 83. One of the 8 year old girls that began her tennis with me just set the career victories record (57 singles victories, was 55) at Eastern Illinois University, so I can start your kids out right.
One of my ladies' teams came in 2nd in Tennessee, and I had teams in the State Championships 10 years in a row. I developed a lot of their tennis from the very beginning.
When I was a teenager one of my tennis coaches influenced me a lot. He encouraged me, and made me feel special. I made a backhand cross court shot one time, and he just said "wow!". At that point in my life I wasn't getting any "pats on the back" at home. The encouragement from that shot has never left me. I went on to be a college tennis player, and have now grown college tennis players.
I enjoy giving the kids (or adults) the same encouragement that my coach gave me.

After 30,000 hours of on court experience, it doesn't take me long to assess what's going on with my new students. I will immediately start teaching what is needed.
I have been teaching tennis for 24 years. I am USPTA certified, and have more than 30,000 hours of on court experience. I've seen my 7 year old beginners become successful college players.

I love tennis. I loved my coach when I was a teenager, and really thought teaching (like him) would be awesome. Tennis teaching jumped up as a possible job about 25 years later, and I've never stopped.
I worked with everyone possible, from 3 year olds to 83 year olds.
One of my college players texted me:
My college career is over, we just got eliminated in the playoffs! But, I just won my 57th career singles match. This is the new career record at my school, the old record was 55 victories!
