About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have a methodical approach to teaching the fundamentals of tennis. Each new beginning level student is introduced to the form and technique (the two key elements of every stroke) in an easy to understand, systematic yet fun approach to learning the sport.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

What I enjoy most about my profession, is the opportunity to help everyone develop a proficiency in a sport that they will be able to play for their lifetime. It offers them the opportunity to have fun, be active, meet new people with similar interests, and learn.

    Greg is an excellent coach and a great human being. He is very patient with the kids and teaches them basic fundamentals of the game to make their base strong. Kids love him as a coach and are always looking forward to their next practice. Thank you Coach. Chirjeev (Amitoj and Arjit's Dad)

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes. As a certified Elite Professional with the United States Professional Tennis Association we have standards of Continuing Education that must be met. I far and away exceed those standards because I have realized, over the years, that there is always so much to learn, and so much to share with others who want to learn.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have the best job in the world. I get to work outdoors, inspire children, help adults stay physically and mentally active, and satisfy my own physical, mental and emotional needs.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I help everybody develop a love for the sport of tennis by developing a proficiency that they never dreamed they could attain.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
The other day, while watching tryouts for the boy's tennis team at Aliso Niguel High School, I looked around and realized that I had given most of them their first tennis lessons, and many of them still train with me. That's very satisfying, because many of them were between 6-8 years old when they first started.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The key to hiring a good tennis instructor is learning about his method, his experience, his patience, and his ability to communicate.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
When somebody gets to know me, they learn of my passion for playing tennis, and my passion for teaching tennis.
