Client Reviews

Ken was an amazing instructor! I look forward to continue working with him.

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.

Coach Ken is the best tennis coach I’ve trained with. Since my time on the high school tennis team, I have received coaching from various people. Undoubtedly, I have seen the most rapid improvement in myself after learning from Coach Ken. He taught me new techniques at our first lesson together. Admittedly, I was reluctant to change my continental grip and forehand stroke because of the training I’ve previously received. However, after giving his recommendations a shot (no pun intended), I see that my shots have greatly improved! In a way that I didn’t think was possible— including a one-hand backhand! What stands out about Coach Ken is his ability to provide real-time feedback consistently throughout the lesson. From correcting my grip, to each step of my stroke, to the shift in body weight throughout. It is like his mind is always analyzing each hit. This feedback allows me to actively integrate changes from the beginning to the end of the lesson. I’m looking forward to more lessons with Coach Ken and seeing the improvement in my tennis game. I have recommended him to my family and friends. If you are looking for an experienced committed tennis coach, then I highly recommend Coach Ken!
Ken is really great! My opinion he is the best tennis instructor in the north Jersey area. I have been taking lessons with a few of tennis coaches. I love Kens instruction best. With his instruction I play so much better right away. Ken instruction is very clear. He knows what I need to change in order to hit professionally. Kens strategy is very helpful. Now I am able to beat some players who used to beat me badly. All my tennis friends are surprised the speed I am improving. I am very happy with him and looking forward to continue my lessons with Ken.
From zero forehand to two forehands! I had always been interested in playing tennis but never had the chance to start until my adult years. Starting from scratch, Coach Ken taught me and helped me improve my forehand in just one session. He possesses an incredible skill in observing and fine-tuning my strokes, enabling me to correct my form with every session. His feedback proved invaluable in boosting my confidence in my own abilities and strengthening my weaknesses. As I am ambidextrous, Coach Ken recommended that I try switching between left and right forehands, which has given me an incredible advantage on the court and complements my playing style perfectly. I cannot recommend Coach Ken enough; he has shaped me into the tennis player I am today, and I eagerly look forward to continuing to work with him. If you are ready to invest in reaching your peak tennis form, I wholeheartedly encourage you to consider 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.
