About Tennis Pro

hired 28 times on Thumbtack

I offer tennis lessons for all ages and abilities. I have 15 years professional experience, mostly running my own business with private lessons, but also at prestigious clubs, camps and schools. I love the variety of wonderful people who come to my lessons and become regular clients. We have lots of fun and you get good!

I am PTR certified, and regularly attend tennis teachers conventions associated with the US Open, where I continually study the training methods of the world's best coaches visiting from around the world. After 10+ years this has become a huge reservoir of knowledge which I can draw upon at the appropriate time to help you play better. It helps me maintain and develop innovative state of the art tennis training methods... which means your learning will be easier, faster, and more fun.

My focus is on natural movement and racket head acceleration. I seek to build strong fundamentals similar to top touring pros you see on TV. I distill these into easy to absorb lessons. You will be rallying 20 or more balls after your first lesson ! You will develop a solid tennis foundation for the rest of your life. Most importantly whatever your ability, you will have FUN!

Uniquely, my tennis instruction is "informed" with many years playing Tai Chi. You can see more unusual tennis ideas at "Awesome Tennis Lessons" on Facebook ... It lists unusual tennis ideas I uncover in no particular order... Hope you hit the "like" button :-)

Even better lets hit on the court... More fun than anything !

    Uses all sorts of tools and techniques and does a great job teaching the fundamentals of good strokes, which can be hard to teach really young kids. Very good at keeping the lesson and kids moving, great with young kids. Very accomodating. We'll be working with him throughout the summer.

Question and answer

Q. What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

A. We often rally 20+ balls in a row in an easy cooperative manor during which I can learn about the player and see what can most improve their abilities. I introduce the most essential idea first and then develop it with appropriate drills/games. These let player feel the mechanics instead of just intellectually describing events. It also means more fun!

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Each year I attend the tennis teacher's convention at the US OPEN where the worlds best coaches' from around THE WORLD show their training methods.

I have a keen eye, and I use it to watch the top players in very slow motion and then hit that way to understand better their methods.

Aside from years of playing tennis, I have studied Tai Chi for decades and bring the special understanding of the 5000 year old forms into the modern tennis stroke. This is a knowledge base you will not find elsewhere.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. You can split private lessons with a friend for same price!
Long term students can receive bulk discount.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. Love of watching people grow and get good...

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I help players of all ages and abilities. Many are young adults or couples. Others are children aged 4 and up... am currently introducing a 3 year old to tennis... amazing abiliry! (3 year olds are naturals) I teach similar ideas regardless of ability, just the application is more precise and intense. as people get better. Tennis is an international sport and being NYC I've helped players from virtually every country. I like working with developing juniors where my depth of knowledge can make a real difference. My best become #1 in 18s USTA sectionals, but that takes a lot of work and commitment that few players posses.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. Taking a busy professional available only at 9 or 10 pm from beginner to strong 4.0 level inside a year's (long summer) time.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Put weekly lessons on auto pilot and let us use our skills to build a solid foundation that will give you a life time of fun... BTW USTA just opened a 95 and older league... :)

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. How small the margins are and how much extra overhead there is for each lesson. Providing professional lessons is different than a college player making extra money for the summer. This applies also to many parks and rec programs and clubs with lower standards.
