Introduction: I am a PTR certified tennis instructor who enjoys working with people of all skill levels. I have coached for numerous tennis clubs/academies, including Sunrise Tennis Academy, Delaware Valley Tennis Academy, Boca Pointe Country Club, Coral Ridge Country Club and Addison Reserve.
I played college tennis for Kutztown University.
I finished 2015 ranked #6 in the Middle States for men's Open Singles, and have won numerous Men's open tournaments.
I also compete in mixed doubles USTA events, and just recently competed/qualified for mixed 8.0 and 9.0 Nationals in Tucson AZ.
In 2011, I won a National Title as part of a USTA team.
I was born in France and lived there for 14 years, and have dual citizenship. (France/US)
My teaching style:
I emphasize proper stroke technique, consistency and superior fitness. This translates to a lot of movement drills. I also emphasize mental strength/ability to focus as well as strategy. In a basic lesson with me, a player could expect to hit a lot of balls, both from the forehand and backhand side, some volleys/overheads and also spending some time on serves and return. I will focus on helping the student become consistent with these strokes before talking about adding power and being more aggressive.
I take great pride in watching my students improve each and every lesson. I also really enjoy working with people who develop a passion for the game. I also know that tennis can be a great way to exercise and stay physically active.
I have noticed the difference a few lessons can make in a person's fitness level.
I have many more reviews available from past clients upon request!
