"Steve is an excellent teacher! I am a beginner and I have had lessons in the past where a ball machine was set up and I was left to my own, and not surprisingly I was not improving. Steve's one on one approach with detailed instruction, observations on improving my strokes and footwork and a clear methodology tailored for me has helped my game immensely. Steve is also always on time, personable and responsive."

"Steve has been a terrific help with my game. Completely changed my forehand and backhand to make them more effective and powerful. My serve is still a work in progress but I'm confident that with Steve's help it will in time become more of an asset than a liability. Great coach. Fun to work with."

"Steve is an outstanding instructor. He's patient, inventive, and deeply knowledgable. His ability to connect with children is extraordinary. He finds the perfect balance between humor and instruction and is able to motivate them to unwittingly improve their game and learn all the while having fun. My son, in particular, taking his very first set of tennis lessons, he went from a complete novice to an enthusiastic player. My nine-year old daughter improved dramatically and proclaimed, "tennis is my favorite game!" Steve has a deep knowledge of tennis history and conveys an infectious enthusiasm for all aspects of the game. I would unhesitatingly recommend him to any level player--novice, intermediate, or someone wanting to improve the finer nuances of their game."

"From the very beginning Steve has been welcoming and encouraging. His ability to explain new concepts and careful eye for technique is what has helped me transform into the tennis player I am today. Few coaches have the patience to attentively watch to make sure each and every ball you hit is technically sound, but Steve does so every time. Any mistake that is made on the court is turned into a learning opportunity. Over the past few years I have worked on skills that have helped me improve all aspects of my game. I now play for the Macalester College tennis team and I simply would not have made it this far without working with Steve. He is an invested coach who has a wealth of knowledge and love for the game. Each lesson reflects that passion and skill, guaranteed."

"Steve is truly the best tennis instructor I've ever had. So efficient in his methods, and able to dissect any problem area and improve performance effectively. I never thought I would see myself or my girls move along so quickly. There's none of that just feeding you bunch of balls. He is ON it"
