Hi, my name is Roger and I am a local Alexandria tennis coach with over 45 years of playing experience. I have been providing tennis lessons, both private and group, for more than 25 years. I have extensive experience teaching players of all ages and skill levels.
During my time as a certified tennis instructor, I have served as a teaching pro for the Ft. Washington Pool and Tennis Association (MD), Washington Tennis Services International, City of Falls Church (VA), Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, and as an independent private tennis instructor throughout DMV.
Over the years, I have directed summer tennis camps and served as both a men’s and juniors’ team tennis coach through the Greater Washington Tennis Association, National Junior Tennis League and First Serve Tennis Academy. Although I specialize in and especially enjoy teaching beginner and intermediate players of all ages, I can teach players at all skill levels, including those with special needs.
Private, semi-private and small group lessons allow for individualized instruction which is absent in large group lessons. The lessons are more enjoyable and productive because I can work at a pace that is comfortable for each individual. If a student needs more focused attention on a particular stroke or movement during the lesson, then we have the flexibility to spend more time in those specific areas.
My teaching style involves breaking down the strokes in a way that makes them easy to understand and execute, while also clearly explaining the function of each step in the process. I incorporate the use of fun and innovative drills, games and match play to strengthen skills. I teach tennis lessons at various outdoor locations throughout Northern Virginia and will travel up to 20 miles to a court near you.
Please feel free to contact me through my coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, set-up your first tennis lesson or hitting session at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to the opportunity to be your Alexandria tennis coach. I hope to see you out on the court!
