I have been giving private tennis lessons in Boston and on Cape Cod for the past 8 years on and off. My coaching is based on the principles I learned from my own private coach, what I learned while teaching at Nike Tennis Camps and coaching at Wychmere Harbor and HarwichPort Tennis Association and incorporates the drills I found most helpful during my time as a collegiate tennis player at Williams College.
I enjoy working with players of all ages and levels, but I especially enjoy the challenge of coaching teenagers, because with them I can make the biggest difference in their game. My specialties include improving the forehand and backhand as well as various techniques to improve the serve and volley as well. I focus on the mental aspect of the game as well and incorporate many things I have read and learned from my old coaches into the lessons especially for more advanced players.
I start my sessions with a dynamic warm up, followed by drills and technique development, conditioning, and tons of repetition. When my athlete is ready, I’ll play points to simulate a match context. After each session, I want my athlete to feel an immediate, concrete improvement in his or her game on at least one shot we have worked on extensively during the lesson.
