BIO

I have loved tennis and played 5 times a week or more for 40 years. people I have taught like my step by step patience. I took lessons with a freelance instructor for 15 years. Unfortunately he died of cancer 5yrs. ago. my teaching style matches his and he was very successful teaching players below 3.5 level for over 30 years. his funeral was on a tennis court where I gave a eulogy outlining his personality and accomplishments on the tennis court.
