Looking

to

get

the

most

out

of

your

game?

Seeking

expert

advice

on

how

to

improve

your

strokes

or

construct

points

more

purposefully?

How

about

the

most

exhilarating

workout

you’ve

ever

had

on

a

tennis

court?

Wheather

you’ve

played

for

years

or

are

brand

new

to

the

game,

I

will

tailor

a

lesson and program to suit your needs and goals.

I’m

a

patient,

enthusiastic

teacher

who

is

equally

at

home

coaching

juniors

and

adults,

exuding

positive

energy

and

a

love

for

the

game.

Let

me

share

with

you

the

sheer

joy

I

feel

on

a

tennis

court.

My

decades

in

the

game

have

taught

me

that

a

positive

tennis

experience

can

be

transformative

and

shape many areas of life.

Let

me

share

a

little

more

about

my

tennis

background:

Prior

to

private

coaching,

I

ran

the

La

Salle

Explorers

NCAA

Division

I

men’s

program

for

12

seasons.

Before

coaching

the

program,

I

was

a

standout

player

for

the

Explorers,

amassing

a

55-31

record

in

the

team’s

top

slot.

At

La

Salle

High

School,

I

was

a

four-time

all-Catholic

selection

and,

in

1994

was

named the league’s most valuable player.

From

a

young

age,

my

father

instilled

in

me

a

love

of

the

game,

a

deep

respect

for

its

traditions,

and

abiding

commitment

to

fairness,

good

sportsmanship,

and

always

giving

my

best

effort.

In

1998

my

family

was

honored

with

Philadelphia’s Tennis Family of the Year Award.

First

and

foremost,

I’m

a

teacher.

I

graduated

La

Salle

University

with

a

bachelor’s

degree

in

education

and

for

16

years

have

taught

special

education

in

the

School

District

of

Philadelphia.

My

professional

background

has

greatly

influenced

my

approach

to

on-court

teaching,

particularly

that

people

absorb

information

and

develop

skills

in

many

ways.

I

offer

numerous

opportunities

for

adults

and

children

to learn, practice and grow on the tennis court.

Call

today

at

267-738-8520

and

receive

a

discounted

lesson.

Looking forward to getting out there with you soon!
