I have created an innovative and fun teaching system which makes learning tennis easy and helps existing players excel.
That sounds quite dry, but we have fun on the court, and I play tunes while we practice which creates a cool vibe.
I greatly enjoy giving students the skills needed to play and love tennis for all of their lives.
For the past 4 months, my two daughters have taken private or small group lessons with David on a weekly basis. As a parent, I am impressed with his ability to connect with children and teach them in a way that motivates them. David’s ability to create a positive learning experience for every single player regardless of skillset allows them to be at ease and take instructions. His attention to detail, and his positive demeanor makes it fun improving and learning. Their games improve with each lesson thanks to David’s clear instruction, enthusiastic encouragement and good humor. David’s ability to recognize the areas of my game that need improvement, and then give clear direction and provide an encouraging environment conducive to positive change have noticeably raised my 13 year old’s play in a short time and he has given my 10 year old valuable fundamentals so she can start her tennis journey. David has an outstanding ability to build the confidence of players he works with. He is very good at putting students at ease, which facilitates skill development.
His patience and attention to what I was going thru to learn
David is a great coach. He’s also friendly and funny. He’s a good tennis player and greatly improved my game. I would highly recommend him.
I started playing tennis later in life so old habits die hard. David has not only allowed me to learn a new sport, he guides with simple techniques that truly allow you to learn and enjoy tennis. In only a couple of months, my improvement is night and day! He also makes it fun I look forward to my very first tournament.
I put all of my students thru a series of basic drills to get an idea for their current level. After that, we diagnose areas of strength and weakness and form a training plan accordingly.
