I am a full time tennis free lance coach from Washington, DC. I recently bought a 2nd home here in Ponte Vedra and am looking to teach here full time.
Background- I played USTA as a junior and achieved a high ranking of #4 in DC. I was also a member of the Bullis High School in Potomac, MD national championship team.
I currently play at a 5.0+ NTRP level.
I can coach all skill levels effectively but excel at hitting and teaching strategy to advanced players.
My teaching style focuses on leveraging a player's current skills, allowing them to reach their potential in a shorter period of time. This is done by diligently focusing on footwork, which teaches the player to use their body to generate velocity in their shots, as opposed to swinging the racket with their arm and spraying the ball all over the court.
I put a huge priority on the two most important shots in the game, the serve, and return of serve.
My style of play is extremely aggressive. I serve and volley and chip and charge my returns.
If you are looking to seriously improve your game, contact me.
$40 an hour and I travel to a court near you.
