I was just a child when I first dreamt of becoming a professional Tennis Player. While many of my peers moved on to more traditional pursuits, I never gave up on the sport and am glad to be able to compete in and teach tennis to this day.
I offer Private and Semi-Private Lessons; adults and children of all ages are welcome.

My philosophy is that one should always start at the beginning, regardless of what you're wanting to learn. Hence, if you're a beginner, we will begin the initial lesson as if you know nothing about the game of Tennis. If you're an intermediate player, I will comply with any requests you may have in regards to a part of your game you wish to improve on. If you played in College at an Open Level or if you're an advanced player and are hoping to improve on game strategy for example, I can help as well.
Options for these Semi-Private lessons vary according to what you're wanting to get out of the 1 hour long lesson. If you're looking for more of a cardio workout, the lesson will consist of a lot of movement and will be less focused on technique. A semi-private tennis lesson allows you to receive personal instruction with another person (friend, partner, neighbor) on the court at the same time. If you have a friend who you want to take a lesson with we offer a semi-private tennis lessons that is no less instructional than a private lesson. As they say, the more the merrier! It is always better to either compare your game to or just someone to have a laugh or two with.
I offer group lessons of up to 6 for $25 each. Group Lessons are an hour and a half and consist of thirty minutes of Basic Stroke Form and/or Review. The following hour will consist of actual hitting balls, drills, and serving technique.
Whether you want to practice with team members or introduce a neighbor to the sport, a group lesson is sure to be fun for everyone involved.
Choose your tennis court, so the entire group can pick the location that works best for everyone
I offer Hitting Sessions to those of you at a 3.5 or higher levels. Advanced tennis players need highly competitive, intense lessons that will simulate match play. As a current competitive player, I've played at some of the highest levels of competition, including at the Division I collegiate level you know you’ll be getting the right instruction to take your game to the next level. By signing up for a hitting lesson with myself, you’ll get the opportunity to hit with an experienced player who can give you advice on positioning and strategy in addition to stroke technique.. These sessions can consist of an hour to two hours long. Match play is also an option.
