About this pro

Hi!!!!!!

I have been helping people train and get more out of the sport since I can remember. I did it for free/fun to help others learn what I did but  to also make them better. I have played softball for 23 years at EVERY level (t-ball, city, fall ball, high school Varsity and College) and I continue to play adult coed right now. I absolutely love this sport! I coach, I train, and I work it, meaning I umpire adult rec leagues, middle schools and high schools! I was a short stop, 2nd baseman and a catcher in my years, with catching being my specialty. I had the most stolen bases due to my speed, fastest timed throw downs and was named one of the top most catchers with throw outs on base. I REALLY do this to show other athletes what they’re capable of. I have a lot of knowledge that I would LOVE to share! I provide pure dedication to every student-athlete, as well as my full attention and we will use up every minute we have together. I want them to understand the basic mechanics but to also have fun and actually gain something out of it. We will stretch, work on mechanics, do drills and do a lot of conditioning to build stamina and endurance. All I ask is that the student athlete give me 100% and is willing to work out on their own at home, when I give them a workout plan. 

Please text me for any questions you have. I don’t get on a lot so may miss your request! 

I have trained, coached and reffed volleyball for several years now. My coaching mechanics are the same as softball.

I do have some help from family, but for the most part, I teach on my own. I will be by your side every step of the way and actually showing you how it’s done, rather than just to tell you what you’re doing wrong. We will learn together and have all the fun in the world, but it will be a work out for the both of us!

I enjoy the sport, but I also enjoy seeing the look on an athletes face, when they realize their full potential all while having fun. It’s something I definitely look forward to every practice/lesson. Please contact me for any additional info 210.710.6734

    I have not booked with TJ through this website, but we have worked with her before. She has a lot of experience and made it fun for us to learn. You think you know everything, but she had pointed out to us other mechanics and fundamentals to work on that we would have never thought of or that we thought we were doing correctly.

    Very knowledgeable! Started off slow to see where we needed to start and went from there. Will be booking with her again!

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

70/hr is standard but also dependent on type of lesson :-) 


How did you get started teaching?

Just by helping others that have watched me play over the years. They always ask for advice and how I can teach their kids.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from the t-ball level all the way up to high school level. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am currently coaching a softball team that I used to play for, and watching these girls grow and get better all the while having fun, is just a complete joy! I give them something to work on before every game and I see the improvement little by little.


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

Pick one that has experience in your position. THIS is very important. Not every position is the same or will be treated the same. Also, pick one you feel comfortable with but who will learn with you and have fun!


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

Do I feel comfortable? 

How can they help me? 

Is Communication there? 

Did they answer all my questions? 

Do they have experience?
