Hi! My name is Yana Stafford and I’m a tennis instructor with 12 years of experience, played for SMU division 1 all 4 years. Originally from Moscow, Russia - I come from one of the best historical tennis schools where players like Kurnikova, Safin and Rublev graduated. Our approach to teaching is based firstly on fundamentals. We want to ensure our pupils do things the right way as we care for their growth. I was lucky enough to not just graduate from the school but also work as a coach there for couple of years. My goal is to bring this knowledge to my students. I work at University Park courts, and reserve them per request. My current rate is $90/hour excluding taxes. Let me know about your level and goals and anything else you would like to share. Looking forward hearing from you soon!
