Introduction: Please note that I DO NOT teach in the city midweek or weekends evenings.
I have been teaching tennis for 35 years and love to share my passion for the sport with my students of all ages and skill levels.
Thumbtack has been a major source for finding clients and my 75+. 5 star ratings is something I'm quite proud of. My lessons are certainly instructional but having fun learning is one of the significant keys for success and I definitely stress the fun part of learning or honing already sophisticated skills.
I relocated to the West Coast, from New York, in 2014 to join members of my immediate family (and because I got sick of shoveling snow.) What I have done so successfully on the East Coast, I am now doing on the West Coast.
I HAVE TO MENTION THAT I TEACH ONLY IN THE CITY OF SAN FRANCISCO AND, IN THE EAST BAY, ONLY IN THE RICHMOND - OAKLAND CORRIDOR. My schedule doesn't allow me to travel outside those areas for lessons.
I spent 30 years teaching English and journalism on a high school level and coached varsity boys and girls since 1985.
After retiring from "the classroom," I began teaching tennis full time at various clubs in the New York, Long Island area.
Leaving the New York tennis scene was not easy since I had the wonderful opportunity to nurture many tennis relationships and I continue doing so on this side of the country.
