About Me

  • NTRP 5.0, Played #2 Singles, #1 Doubles for Cal. State Long Beach

I'm a USPTA Certified Professional tennis instructor with 21 years of teaching experience in California, Florida and North Carolina. My teaching style is very comfortable - I teach by telling and showing, using imagery to help students grasp the concepts. My approach is to break down tennis into: "Receiving" - footwork, preparation and court positioning, and "Sending" - stroke production, anticipation, shot selection, tactics and court positioning. I am very observant and patient. My style makes learning fun, easy and relaxed for my students, whether they are children or adults, Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced-level players. How fast do YOU want to get good? (r)

Do you have any questions?

    Your coach will come to any court of your choice. Not sure of the closest court? No sweat, they will recommend a convenient location.

    Absolutely! Each extra person is only an additional $10 per hour. Adding friends to your lesson is a great way to cut down on your lesson costs.

What my students are saying...

  • "Allen was great!"

  • "If you have had lessons from some person that charges you $75+ to hit with you, or hit balls to you for 50 minutes, and gives you some general comments, like toss the ball higher or get ready earlier or follow through more, that is not Allen. He will take your game through all the elements of a particular stroke of your choosing. From footwork, to racquet position, to racquet angle, to point of contact, to follow through, Allen will explain how and why. On your serve he will analyze every detail that causes mishits and power leaks, including relaxation and pre-serve routing. Allen is not just a tennis player, he is a true teacher who establishes great rapport with his students."
