I'm very serious about tennis teaching, but I realize that instructors needs to make the lessons FUN! If possible, I like to write a plan for all of my lessons out in advance. Am also an amateur piano player; partially fluent in French. The Positive Coaching Alliance has a very nice program for what we call Double-Goal Coaches. These are coaches who want to win, like anyone else, but also understand the need to teach kids about good sportsmanship, fair play, respecting one's opponents, teammates, teachers, and coaches. I own a two ball machines. I like to use video and a number of other tools to help the player make progress.

What my students are saying...
"Excellent coach and super patient"
"Chuck is awesome! Highly recommended. Fun and creative."
"Chuck is an amazing teacher. He’s been coaching me for two months now. He teaches tennis fundamentals very well by breaking them apart to smaller pieces that you can practice individually and then connect them together. He goes above and beyond during lessons, and you can easily tell his love to the game and enthusiasm to teach. Plus, he has a great personality; very mellow and caring."
"Chuck was great,"
