About this pro

Having played for over 20 years and after having taught tennis lessons for the last 10 years, I know the technical, physical, and mental skills needed to play tennis at all levels. I believe in having fun above all when playing tennis. I make my classes as fun as possible and as aligned as I can to my students.

FAQs


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

1. Understand their goals - Why are they taking the class and what do they want to achieve?

2. In the first class we do an assessment to understand the players level, strenghts, and weaknesses. 

3. We build a plan for the student so that he/she can get to the goals they've set and try to provide an estimate of when the goals can be achieved. These always depend on the amount of hour their practicing with me in lessons and outside with other tennis players, and the level of commitment and discipline.

How did you get started teaching?

We all started playing tennis when we were kids and fell in love with the game of tennis. A few of us decided to go play college tennis where we discovered teaching as a fun way to work on summers. 


What types of students have you worked with?

We have worked with children 5 -12 significantly. Most recently however, we've worked with teenagers that are trying to improve their game to make high school tennis teams, and with adults that haven't stepped on a tennis court before. All in all a very diverse pool of students of all ages and levels. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We started teaching a teenager that is in his senior year of high school. He hadn't played tennis before and wanted to make the high school tennis team. We started working at the beginning of July practicing 3 times a week and he picked the game very quickly. Last week (last week of August) he had his tryouts and he made the cut and will be on the team this year. We have to say the credit goes to him he really put all his effort into the goal and practiced outside of class with other players to makes sure he improved quickly. We are still teaching him and we are currently training to increase consistency in his shots even more. 


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

- Look at methodology in addition to credentials. The majority of academies and coaches in the area are focused on top performance since Texas is a state that produces a significant amount of professional and college tennis players. You want to make sure you are comfortable with who is teaching you, the person is patient and genuinely wants you to learn and improve. 

Someone like that will stay 5 minutes past the hour to finish an exercise, will send you online videos after class for you to watch in addition to on court training. 


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

- Do I have the consistent time per week to dedicate to classes?

- What budget do I have? Group lessons are an affordable option to individual lessons. 

- Do I have a tennis racquet?

- How far am I willing to drive to take the class?

- What do I want to get out of this class, what's my main goal?
