My name is Yuriy. I worked as a coach for three seasons with the US Sports Institute in NJ, providing group beginner lessons for kids ages 4-12. I also worked as a coach for two seasons with the Baltimore Tennis Patrons program, also providing group beginner lessons for kids ages 4-12. Since moving to DC, I have been expanding my coaching skills by working with beginner and intermediate adults to help them achieve their goals. I enjoy coaching all ages and skill levels - great with kids & beginners. In addition to tennis, I love playing Ultimate Frisbee and also volunteer as a frisbee coach for youth teams through the Washington Area Frisbee Club!

What my students are saying...
"I wanted to learn how to play tennis the right way. Yuriy was able to teach me the basics and I had fun learning from him. I'm definitely getting better with his help. He tailored the lessons to fit my tennis ability (or lack thereof). Now I'm brave enough to get closer to the net and try to volley."
"Yuriy makes learning tennis fun with all the different drills to improve muscle memory and has a ton of patience! Ground strokes, volleys, and even serves were improved."
"I am new to the game of tennis and didn't exactly know what to expect when starting my first lesson with Yuriy. Even though I'm a beginner, it didn't take long before I was having a great time. He is a very knowledgeable, but patient instructor. We practiced a variety of techniques and he walked me through each step multiple times until I felt comfortable. He was wonderful! I was having such a great time that the hour-long session flew by, and he even gave me a little extra time at the end to run through a few of the drills that I particularly enjoyed. Even after our session, I feel that I've improved my skills and look forward to more lessons with him. I would highly recommend Yuriy to anyone looking for a tennis instructor!"
