Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Hi there! I have been working as a tennis coach and hitting partner for over 14 years ( 5 years in Moscow, Russia; 1 year in New York and 8 years in Los Angeles).
I am a nice guy on and off the court! :-) As soon as you meet me you would feel like you've known me for years.
Rates: $50/hour-70 minutes
My teaching style is more like : COME ON !!!:-) My lessons have always been very tiring for my students ( so..you'd better be strong ...cause balls just keep coming back:-)) I run and get balls back to you...so you should expect to hit more extra shots than you usually do:-). I've been called a "wall machine" for getting every ball back. No ball carts or baskets! You play and learn! Slice, spin, flat forehand and backhand! Serve & volley! Drop shot! High and low....etc. During my lessons you'd rather feel more like a player than a student. I guarantee you^: You'd be in "trouble" :) COME ON!!!
Feel free to contact me and i'll travel to your favorite courts.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
