Introduction: I'm a former USPTA certified tennis professional who has been playing and competing for over 35 years. I have been teaching the game since 1988 and hold an advanced degree and formal training in Psychology. Furthermore, I have spent over ten years in secondary and post-secondary (academic) education. This unique combination of training and experience has allowed me great insight into how humans learn and develop new skills at varying stages in life. I pride myself on my level of service, so please see my link that is listed in my profile. SGVTennisLifestyle.blogspot.com I'm new to Thumbtack, so you can also find me and my dozens of 5-star testimonials on PlayYourCourt.com and CoachUp.com Hope to see you on the court soon!

Michael is simply an amazing and passionate coach who communicates well. He also has a good sense of humor. He explains things in an easy to understand way and praises you for your performance. He often uses video and he was able to point out bad habits I didn’t even know I had. He also showed me my strokes in comparison videos with my idol, Venus Williams. One thing I have to say, unlike prior coaches I had, Michael didn’t keep feeding me balls to further deepen my bad habits. He addressed the problems right way and finally got me on the path to progress. I’m planning to make the Varsity team next season…

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My hourly rate is 105 and I offer 10% discount for ten or more session bookings. My suggestion is to book a trial session to examine how I operate and get a feel of the "chemistry" between us to see if we're a good fit. I'm relatively choosy with new students and you too, should be choosy with any prospective coach! 2022 Rates: One on One, Private Instruction: $105.00 / HR 90 Minute Session $135.00 Semi-Private Instruction add $10.00 per player 2 players- $115 / 2 = $57.50 per player, 3 Players- $125 / 3 = $41.66 per player. Racket re-stringing and frame customization services available...

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I initially inquire about scheduling, ask about prior experience with tennis and/or other sports, and inquire about short and long-term goals in tennis. I also give the addresses of my two private training locations.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Over 50 years of playing/competing, and over 30 years of coaching, former USPTA certification. Further, my advanced degree in psychology and over 10 yrs experience in secondary and post-secondary education gives me unique insight on how humans learn new skills at varying stages of development.
