More About Coach John

. 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 am certified by the Professional Tennis Resistry.

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.

Coach John is friendly and a great coach!
We worked on correcting my forehand stroke and also on sharpening other parts of the game. Definitely challenges you to be better.
He also pinpointed my errors and provided constructive criticism during each drill of the session, which was very helpful in improving!
Would highly recommend!

John wastes no time and gets right to the point. The results speak for themselves. I'd recommend him.

John has been very helpful in helping our son Walt learn basketball fundamentals. Walt is excited about working with John.

Coach John was great! We are beginners and he gave us helpful basics but let us start playing right away. We can't wait for our next lesson!

John picked up on my weaknesses quickly and worked with me on all parts of my game. He challenged me and gave both positive feedback and constructive criticism.

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!

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.

Thanks John. I wish you lived in London

Coach John is a very funny, outgoing coach. He focused on fundamentals of tennis, and I can see my progress after a few sessions.

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!

John is a great coach. Super relaxed, fun, yet pushes you hard. He has a very watchful eye and great comments that after one sesison have already started to improve my game

Coach John made tennis fun for my friend and I who are beginners. He taught us fundamental techniques, and we are learning quickly. I would recommend Coach John to anyone interested in playing tennis. My friend and I are excited about continuing our tennis lessons.

John is an amazing coach and I saw improvement after just one lesson. Couldn't ask for a better coach- he is to the point, effective, and also hilarious! Love him!

Very flexible and understanding. Gets to the point and does not waste time. Allows student be proactive as to what they want to achieve. Very fun to hang around and hilarious at times!

Amazing time, I really learned a lot.

Good coach, is helpful with the overall game.

Really an incredible coach. He makes sure that I pay attention to every detail of the game but also allows me to be relaxed

I tried teaching my 9 year-old boy to play tennis but I did not have the knowledge nor patience to do so. I've watched Coach John teach his NJTL class and witnessed his interaction with the children and how they responded to his teaching. He mixes information with humor and the two combined proves successful. His students gravitate to him. I decided to have my son take private lessons with him. I see him improving with each lesson.
Coach John gave me many insights from his teaching. I am able to understand his specific lessons so that I can perform properly. I find him funny but I still learn much from him.
I thought I knew how to play tennis...until I started taking lessons from John. I realized my techniques were flawed which caused me physical pain. He corrected my form and provided instruction that was simple and effective. I am gaining confidence in my skills because of his efficient and straight forward instruction. John has intuitive insight with his students' abilities to learn. I highly recommend him to all ages and skill levels.
