Introduction: Hi Everybody! My name is Daniil, I am from Tomsk, Russia. I am former professional tennis player with 20 years of experience, was Top 5 player in Siberia, Russia and I have been worked in many different academies and countries across the world. I used to work for three years as a tennis coach in one of the top academies in the world "Gorin tennis academy" in California. I had a full athletic scholarship in D2 at Montana State University in Billings and that's where I graduated from. I have been playing in 3 different teams during my career and have seen many different types and styles of tennis. Before the college I was playing ITFs and during the college year I was playing some Futures ATP. I have 12 years of coaching experience. I teach methodology that include intense drilling with an emphasis on technique. Success is based on a proven methodology that creates high level players. It's not about hitting the ball hard, it's about being effective and knowing the methodology and how to hit the ball correctly. Same thing relates to footwork, which is one of the main foundation in tennis, it very important and should be developed as a muscle memory. I provide all types of coaching: tactical training, technique training, and footwork training. I provide private and semi-private lessons and hitting sessions for adults and for juniors. Everything depends on your level, and I can guarantee you will improve! Just give me a call and let's arrange day and time. I am open for everybody, any age, any tennis level. All you need is a desire to become better. I am available in Palo Alto and Sunnyvale areas. If you have courts close to your home, we can talk about it and I can come. Either if you are playing for fun or taking tennis seriously, this is the right place for you to improve your skills. You will feel the difference in your game after the first lesson. Wish you good luck in your endeavors and I will see you soon on the tennis courts!

My son was training with Daniil for about 3 years he is a very good trainer. When my son first started he didn’t know how to play tennis and over timer with him training with Daniil he learned so much and I can see the progression. He is a professional trainer and I very much recommend him.

Myself, my 8 year old and 6 year old all took tennis lessons from Coach Daniil. He is an incredible tennis coach, he teaches good form and makes the sport fun for the little one. Even after one lesson I saw a huge improvement in my own shots. Lessons with Daniil was in very high demand in our community, we were sad he had to move!

Daniil is a brilliant tennis coach for both children and adults. Having taken adult tennis lessons with several different coaches, I can attest that he is one of the best! He also taught both of my boys as well as the children of several friends, ranging from ages 8-12, and every single child loved him. He brings great energy and infectious enthusiasm to every lesson, while teaching great technique. Highly recommended for both beginners and advanced students of all ages.

My son has been taking private tennis lessons from Coach Daniil for about 8 months now, and I am really impressed by the progress and improvements in his game because of the thorough instructions from Daniil. The coach is very easy to work with, and very professional. He focuses on providing instructions to improve all aspects of the game. I would greatly recommend him to anyone who would want to take their tennis game to the next level.

"Highly recommend! You can get very productive lessons!" I'm a beginner without any background in tennis. With Daniil's coaching, I'm learning tennis without much difficulty. Dan is really professional and responsible. He is very keen at observing the mistakes that I repeatedly make and make sure I correct those. He is constantly working on my swings, steps, and grips in detail throughout the lessons. I always feel that I improve after each session. Also he is a great motivator and understands how to push, but not too far.
