Hi, I teach at the convenient Meyer Tennis Center (aka Mills College) and prefer to teach there to avoid hassles with others and balls interrupting side courts. Some background on me: I have been a JV coach at Head-Royce and volunteer as a USTA high performance coach. I've enjoyed transitioning from a competitive rec player to a coach for others. I achieved a USPTA Elite Professional certification in 2024 (coaching skills held to a higher level) and am continually learning how to be a better coach. For example, I have studied the way tennis is taught in Spain and consume other content for complete beginners. Teaching each person is very different.
