Club teaching pro has openings for new students in the North Jersey Area. I have taught adult and junior clinics at Maywood Tennis Club, Tiger Racquet Club and Knoll Racquet Club. Currently, I teach my winter private lessons at Wayne Indoor Tennis Club. I am also affiliated with Hapwards Tennis Shop in Bloomfield to provide you with steep discounts on equipment.
I was an all county and conference h.s. player, who also played college tennis at one of the best DIII programs in the US. I have been teaching tennis full time for 8 years and taught part time for 12.
I have taught the #1 singles players at Ridgewood H.S.(nationally ranked) and Emerson HS (taught her from scratch) all the way down to 3 year olds who learn to hit from the service line and every type of player in between. I have around 40 current weekly clients. I have/had varsity or jv players at Dwight Englewood (1 varsity girl), St. Peter's Prep (2 varsity boys), Wayne Valley (2 varsity boys, 1 varsity girl, 1 jv girl), Seton Hall Prep (1 varsity boy), Peddie School (1 jv boy), Verona H.S (1 varsity girl, 1 varsity boy, 1 jv boy), Glen Ridge H.S (2 jv girls), Montville H.S.

Every girl of high school age that I teach made their varsity team Fall 2011 and Fall 2012!
I am very patient, never yell, but want you to reach all of your tennis goals. I am more than happy to talk to you about your game off the court---not just during your one hour lesson.
You are constantly moving during your lesson, not standing still hitting balls. I teach you the right way to play tennis, which isn't always the easy way!!!! You will learn every part of the game---swing, footwork, eyework, and strategy.
Teaching rate is $420 for a 10 lesson package, $250 for a 5 lesson package. I do not offer a "pay as you go" option, however, you may do a one lesson trial for $50.
Court fee is a flat fee of $44 per session paid directly to the club. Any unused lessons may be used outdoors either at my Clifton or West Orange location.
