 Katie teach beginners, intermediate, advance level players. Including adult players as well. Katie' tennis coaching style is creative, and functional. Every player is different so that’s why she believe it is important to create a unique experience for their tennis, physical, mental, technical needs. She likes to start the warm-up differently every time for the first 10 mins. Whether its practicing hand eye coordination by tossing the ball to see how the player moves on the court. Or reaction drill to test the reaction of the player. Such as footwork, technique mechanics in the ground strokes. It all depends on the player level, and how their tennis game is.  The goal is building a relationship with each player in order to teach them tennis and have the players apply what they learn into their tennis game.

    For the past two years, Katie has been my private coach. Together we have assessed my game plan and what kind of tennis I wanted to play. Personally, I am very competitive and tend to hold myself to the highest standards possible. Because of this, I am very self-critical and rather hard on myself. When I am visibly upset, Katie is patient, understanding, and considerate of my own personal goals. I absolutely loved working with her and would highly recommend her for any kind of lessons whether that may be competitive, or for fun.

    I feel very lucky to have found Katie as a tennis instructor. Her experience and knowledge are great resources, and her coaching style, with a mix of technical instruction and match play, makes it easy to learn the game. I have a great time in every lesson. On top of everything, she is a wonderful person.

FAQs


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

I like to get to know the player. Ask questions about the player tennis playing style and their goals. In the beginning of the warm up I do it differently every time for the first 10 minutes. Whether its practicing hand eye coordination by tossing the ball to see how the player moves on the court. Or reaction drill to test the reaction of the player. Such as footwork, technique mechanics in the ground strokes. It all depends on the player level, and how their tennis game is.
