When my 10-year-old son expressed an interest in learning tennis, I decided to get him private lessons to start him off with solid basics. A tennis friend highly recommended Marc. Now 2 years later, my son is competing in the highest levels of competition in San Diego, played in Team Tennis Sectionals in Indian Wells this year, and was just invited to the SCTA CTC Program for San Diego. Most importantly, he LOVES the game. Marc has been his coach through it all--teaching him the beginner basics to the more finer details of competitive play. Marc has a warm, gentle demeanor, yet is also able to control a large clinic group of teens--a great balance!! He knows that tennis can be a tough mental game, so he encourages the kids, keeps it positive, and gives them mental tools as well. He's been the perfect coach for our son, and we're grateful that we found him!
