    “Coach Amir is excellent. I am a beginner in my 30s and decided that having tennis lessons would be the best way to develop great habits from the start. I am confident after just two lessons that I am very lucky to have found Coach Amir. Quality of teaching varies tremendously; coaches are NOT equal. Coach Amir is extremely methodical and is very patient. I have a science/medicine background (I am a practicing surgeon), and I appreciate how scientific his approach feels and that he is able to explain the physics/mechanics behind every nuance. In a very short time, I have developed the foundations for a consistent,  high-speed, and very controlled forehand (with pretty cool top spin!). ”

    Coach Amir is a dedicated and amazing tennis coach. I’ve been playing tennis for 13 years and went to many academies, tennis camps for more than 10 years and Amir’s results speak for themselves. He has greatly improved my tennis and my fitness level. His advice makes sense and he is great with all ages.

  • Gaye Lynn Hicks

    I love learning the modern way of playing and really perfecting a skill before actually playing. Tennis was intimidating. Now it is fun.

  • John Nguyen

    We just started lessons with this coach and our first impressions are very positive. He is very detailed and covers all aspects of tennis.

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

I breakdown the different strokes one by one and really take my time to explain in detail how to hit each stroke properly in order to achieve my clients goal. Every lesson is customized to my clients needs and ability to play. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I currently play on the GLTA tour and won the world championships. I am one of the few, if not, the only self taught professional tennis player in the world. Teaching myself how to play correctly has mastered my teaching skills and now I am ready to share to my clients.

How did you get started teaching?

I starting playing tennis at the age of 3 and fell in love with the sport ever since.  My father who was number 1 in Iran, got me started.

Now I am the only self taught professional tennis player that ever reaches a 6.5 rating! For the sake of comparison, 7 is professional on TV. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with all ages and levels. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

RuiRui, one of Coach Amir’s students, is ranked #1 in the United States among all the 8 year olds nationally! 

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

Cheaper coaches, you end up paying more in the long run. Go with a quality coach and don’t shy away from a higher hourly rate. Watch this video made for you.
