More About Coach Ken

Hi, my name is Ken and I am a United States Professional Tennis Association certified tennis coach. I analyze your shots and games and develop an easy way for you to play well right away. Will tailor your lessons based on your progress and identify problems and work with you to overcome them quickly. You will be surprised how fast you can hit great forehand, backhand, volleys, etc.

I coach for YMCA and two local schools and have been giving private lessons in the northern New Jersey area for the last fifteen years. I have helped many students get into Ivy League Colleges with scholarships, including Harvard, Yale---, and Cornell. My coaching is based on the principles I learned from my own private coaches. I took lessons from many famous coaches, including coach Scott McGrath who was ranked number one junior tennis player in the United States in the 90's. I also incorporate the drills that I find most helpful from professional tennis players such as Roger Federer, Nodal,......., and Djokovic.

My specialties include modern forehand and backhand, footwork, volleys, power serve, developing mental toughness, as well as addressing players' specific challenges. I enjoy working with players of all ages and levels. After each session, I want my athlete to feel an immediate and concrete improvement in his/her game.

Language Spoken: English, Taiwanese, Chinese, and Cantonese.

One of the top player from Taiwan. Very patient, dedicated, encouraging, and professional coach. Help many students got into Ivy League Colleges.

Loosen up whole body joints and then warm up with drop shots, forehand, backhand,-------, and serve. Addressing players' specific challenges to maximize students potential.

Client Reviews

Coach Ken is fantastic. Extremely patient and technically knowledgeable. I saw improvements to my game immediately.

Coach Ken was terrific! Very informative and fun lesson. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to play or advance their game !

Coach Ken was great! Within the first ten minutes I had significantly improved my shot thanks to his instruction. I have only played for a year but was in a rut with how to improve (making the same mistakes but not knowing why). But what I loved in particular with Ken was his attention to what WAS working vs what wasn’t. There was not a demand for “textbook tennis” form which I’ve always been frustrated by. He evaluated swing and form but also worked off what was comfortable for my natural swing. So refreshing to have instruction like that! He was patient and thoughtful to what I needed to do to improve.

Coach Ken was a wonderful communicator and a supportive and technically sound teacher - thanks for the great lesson!

Excellent knowledge of strategy and techniques.


great Coach with patience and experienced.

This is my first time using Coach Up. I found it just by searching and playing around, but I did some research on it and it got good reviews. I then researched a number of coaches on the site and decided that Ken sounded like he is the right coach for me based upon his experience and the site reviews. I went with cautious optimism because I have worked with some good coaches and some bad coaches before. I'm not a great player, but know that it is possible for me to improve with the right coach.

I was very impressed with Ken. He is easy to talk to, and was very easy to work with. He started off with a warm up, which many coaches just skip over, probably figuring that you want to get in all of the time whacking the ball. Anyone who does that is not worth their salt because the warm-up is possibly one of the most important parts of the lesson.

After the warm up, we talked for a few minutes about my level of experience, my goals and what I felt were my weaknesses. We started working on backhand and I could see and feel improvement right off. Also, he was the first coach out of many who told me that the racquet I am using has too wide a grip for my hand. I researched the issue further (a bad habit of mine) and he's right. Ironically, I had bought the racquet from a previous coach who thought the racquet would be perfect for me.

The lesson was an hour, but I have to tell you that Ken was not looking to skimp on the time. I got there a little early and he was ready, so we started early and went up to and slightly over time until his next lesson arrived. He even commented that he does not worry about this as he will make up the additional time with his next lesson as well. I think it's nice that he was not nickel-and-dime'ing on the time as many other coaches do.

The only thing I think I might have done differently is that if I were evaluating someone, I probably would have spent a little more time evaluating during the first lesson the student's areas of weakness overall - kind of testing out all areas of play. But that's really a matter of personal style. I expect he is assuming (accurately so) that we will have other lessons where we can address other areas of play, and he preferred to spend time getting right to working on an area of weakness rather than simply evaluating everything at once.

I definitely recommend Ken as a coach - I don't think you will be disappointed.

Ken is a great coach. He is a terrific teacher of tennis skills to kids - he conveys a lot of information in a very positive manner. My kids instantly liked him, and we will be taking many future lessons with Ken.

Coach Ken is a friendly, approachable, great Coach! His training and techniques are likely none i've had before. His Comments during the lesson have been very helpful. Coach Ken quickly analyzes problems with swings and conveys adjustment recommendations with clarity. Outstanding coach. I would recommend Coach Ken to Anyone.

Coach Ken is a very great tennis coach with full patient to train my son.
His training and techniques are professional. I am sure my son will learn the core of tennis from Coach Ken.

My kids ages 11 and 12 are taking lessons with Ken and he is a terrific coach. He is very patient and thorough when explaining any corrections. My kids have taken lessons through the local YMCA for 2 years, but I feel in just 2 lessons, their swing has greatly improved. I highly recommend Ken for lessons!
Great first lesson. Very encouraging and tailors the lesson to the student's needs. Personable and professional. I look forward to continuing lessons
As an upcoming senior in high school, summer vacation is a busy time for me. I have to prepare for not only my upcoming school year, but also for college. I've only taken lessons with Ken for about 3 months, and the first thing I noticed was how kind and flexible he was to my schedule changes. No matter how last minute the schedule change is, he was always willing to comply with a smile. Not only is he extremely kind, but he is also very precise with correcting my form, even adjusting my racket angle the slightest bit if it'll help me improve my swing. Although I've played tennis for 5 years, he's immensely improved my game so that I could go into this year's season with new techniques and a better, more fluent swing. Ken is also very easy to talk to and will make the lesson fun by talking about whatever interests you as the student, whether it may be about politics or what you had for breakfast. Ken is an all-around great tennis teacher.
