I do not work for Thumbtack but for myself. Any questions are answered in my lessons section Craigslist ad: "Great tennis lesson...fun teacher" East Bay San Francisco. I can answer all your questions about tennis and even find you players and fun local tournaments.
I teach intermediate and advanced players, beginners can get half hour free if in the East Bay, contact me through my Cragslist ad, it is has more information. I show you how to get to intermediate, then you take the classes more officially; I am looking for enthusiasm from the beginner.
I take you through all the parts of tennis, and hit with you directly. We do drills, go over the fundamentals, how to improve, serve, ground strokes, all 14 shots.
I teach beginners, the busy business professional who wants to be playing tennis and sports two, three days a week and the every day player who is looking to go to the next level. Once or twice a week, recommended for 6 weeks to get the overall feel and ideas of tennis. 6-9 lessons is complete, then tune-ups as wanted, work outs.
I am available mornings, afternoons, early evenings and some weekend, depending on time and day.
Lessons are in the Berkeley/East Bay or San Francisco Areas, $30 per hour, $40 for hour and a half, $50 for two. Extra person on court: $10, share rest of cost, learn to do drills together.
I am a 4.0-4.5 level player with controlled shots and make it fun and a way to work out. The drills are quite specialized, and improve movement and form. What you learn from me is topspin and slice, some flat, how to put points together, approach shot and what you want to learn.
