More about me
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.
I had a great learning experience with coach John. He picked up on the mistakes that I was making within the first 30 minutes and helped me correct them. He makes the sessions challenging with the drills but also fun with his humor. I would highly recommend him!Prasant (CoachUp confirmed client)
John is a great coach. He understands very quickly were your weaknesses come from. He can be tough but always balancing it with good humour. He really knows how to make you improve while having a good time.

John gave me my very first tennis lesson. He is personable and attentive and made the lesson simple and straightforward. He also challenged me appropriately but listened if I needed to take a break! I will work with him again for sure!Lisa (CoachUp confirmed client)
