. I currently teach tennis in Los Angeles. I do 1-on-1sessions as well as group sessions. I work with all ages and skill levels. I also work for the National Junior Tennis and Learning program(NJTL ) which gives kids,ages 5-17 the opportunity to learn tennis at an affordable rate in a group setting.
I played junior college tennis. Team captain on championship winning team. I continued o play individual tournaments while in school. Won a handful of tournaments. Though I primary teach now,I try to play at least 3 tournaments a year. Whether single or doubles. Depending on time to train. I still enjoy competing.
I first warm the athlete up with cardio and stretching. Next,I discuss lesson plan for the day with student. Stroke warm up,start of lesson of the day. After completion of drill I have question and answer with student. This way I can help student not only mentally,but also I can see what student really wants from tennis.
