About Alex

Hi my name is Alex and I am a local Irvine tennis coach with over 33 years of playing experience (current 6.0 player) and over 20 years of teaching experience! I am a former varsity USC tennis team member (#1 in the nation, 2-time NCAA Champions). I have also played Junior tournaments, Open tournaments and then continued playing on the ATP Pro Tour. The best player that I played against on the tour was Max Mirnyi (former world #1 doubles player and #18 singles player).

I am offering fun private tennis lessons, semi-private tennis lessons, group tennis lessons and hitting only sessions for all ages (kids, teens, adults, seniors) and all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So whether you need to work on specifics like your forehand, backhand, volley, serve, service return, overhead, drop shot, approach shot, footwork, singles strategy or doubles strategy-I would be more than happy to help you out with your tennis game!

I am available to teach outdoor tennis lessons at a private location in Irvine but will travel up to 2 miles to a court that is near you. You can view all of my current and past testimonials on my coach page below.

Please contact me through my FindTennisLessons.com coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, we’ll 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 Irvine tennis coach. See you out on the court!

Testimonials

"Alex has taught my sons for the past four and a half years. He is a fantastic tennis coach. Not only is he kind and patient, but he also provides positive re-enforcement and encourages them every step of the way. He doesn't allow them to become frustrated and he constantly instills in them confidence to play well. He makes his tennis lessons interesting and engaging. He is very detailed in his coaching, always paying attention to correct strokes and foot work. When they miss a shot, in a very positive manner, he reminds them of the correct way to play so that they will be successful in winning their games. Alex has definitely given them a solid foundation in tennis. It is evident that his love for the sport makes him an enthusiastic, caring and concerned coach. My boys really admire him and they thoroughly enjoy their tennis coaching. I highly recommend Alex if you are looking for a tennis coach for your children!"

Testimonials

"My son started private tennis lessons with Coach Alex about three months ago and I have to say my husband and I are very impressed. Not only is Coach Alex a top notch pro tennis player, he is also a very good teacher with infinite patience who really cares and is able to connect with his student. As a father of two younger kids, Alex understands children. Let's be honest, kids are not the best listeners and are sometimes unruly. Alex teaches with the right balance of kindness and firmness and my son (who normally shys away from any sports) has really thrived under his coaching. In fact, I have started taking tennis lessons with Alex. It's been a pleasure and we are so lucky to have found him!"

Ann

Testimonials

"Alex is an excellent tennis coach. My son, who has not played before, started taking one-on-one lessons with Coach Alex twice a week about 3 months ago and has improved steadily over this time. Alex has a great sense of humor and a good rapport with my son, and can motivate him even on days when he only has iPad on his mind. My son is the same age as Alex's younger son, so Alex has a lot of practice teaching young kids. On the days my son needs a break earlier, Alex also coaches me for 10 or 15 minutes so I can relearn the basics!"

Raymond

Testimonials

"I took tennis instruction from Coach Alex and I highly recommend him. I had shoulder replacement a few years back and wanted to take up tennis again going into retirement in a few years. I was interested in being more fit and playing a better game. The lessons were challenging yet reasonable to follow and perform. Alex cuts to the chase-he gives instructions that squeeze the most out of practice time. I feel satisfied in the progress I made and am now able to play tennis with friends!"

Julie

Testimonials

"I've been coached by Alex for a couple of months now. He is very detailed on his instructions and he makes sure your tennis foundation is very solid so we can improve our tennis skills the right way. He is not just a ball feeder, he really wants you to learn. If you are looking for a great coach you found him!"

Danny

Testimonials

"Alex is by far the best pro for kids. My daughter has taken from other local pros without results. Alex is patient and instills a good solid foundation that I would never have thought possible for a 7year old! I've also had a few lessons myself and again he really stresses the importance of sound fundamentals which has elevated my game even though I've been playing too long to mention!"

Sandra

Tustin, California

Testimonials

"My son used to take tennis group classes at San Gabriel Valley where we used to live. Then we moved to Irvine about a year ago and I wanted to find a good coach because I felt he was not improving. If you are looking for a encouraging, attentive coach you don't have to look anymore. Alex is the guy. He is fixing my son's shots/ strokes and I see big improvements, my son is enjoying as he feels more confident. Alex can work with your schedule, he is an easy going guy and also his private and semi-private class prices are the same as the City of Irvine tennis classes. I'd recommend anyone to try his class-you will not be disappointed!"

Testimonials

"Alex has infused so much enthusiasm into my kids' tennis playing. Their form, swings and serves have improved beyond belief. We will continue to use Alex. Also, another plus is his punctuality and never cancelling on us. Thank you!"

Testimonials

"Alex is probably the best tennis coach I will ever encounter. When I started with Alex, I felt that this guy knows what he's doing. He is very friendly and knows how to teach tennis in a way that his students enjoy every minute of it. Alex has raised my tennis skills from nothing into something tremendous. He is the best tennis coach around!"

Khalid

Testimonials

"My girls (5 and 6) have been going to Coach Alex for a little under 1 year now, first as part of a group lesson and then in semi private. They are so little, yet they can play over the net with me with a little volley and most importantly, they love tennis (which is important for me to have tennis buddies as they get older)! Alex is very encouraging and knows how to keep it simple for them not to get frustrated. He feeds balls from their side of the net so he can readily adjust their grip, feet and/or swing. We are big fans and Alex has brought tennis back to our whole family!"

JG

Testimonials

"Only after 4 sessions, my seven year old son's forehand and backhand came to next level. Alex's coaching approach is unbelievably efficient. He can teach modern forehand and backhand precisely but in a very simple way. If you take tennis seriously, Alex is the best!"

Ranfeng

Testimonials

"The essence of patience and a skill set to teach and guide his students that creates a sense of tenacity in them to excel at the game of tennis is a one of Coach Alex's assets. Coach Alex not only molds great players in the skills of the game but creates and instills a sense of discipline and confidence that causes his players to rapidly improve, by believing in themselves, most of all they are having FUN thus looking forward to their next class. I have found that he coaches the person, managing each individual skill level independently of other players, a huge part of his and his students' success. I have seen my niece improve with each coaching session and marvel at her growing love for the game-a result of her coach. Coach Alex, kudos for a job very well done!"

Alfred

Testimonials

"If you are looking for a tennis instructor for yourself or your kids, look no further and give Alex a try. After my sons took several group lesson sessions offered by the City of Irvine and Tustin, they were able to hit the tennis balls but were not taught the proper grip and swing mechanics. Just after a few months of once-a-week semi-private lessons, I have noticed significant improvement in their tennis game. They can now deliver more powerful strokes with control and less effort! Most importantly, my sons now enjoy the game with great confidence. Alex is extremely patient and pays attention to his student's every swing making sure his students understand the fundamentals of tennis stroke/game. I believe it is important to instill a solid foundation in order to elevate the game to the next level!"

"Most tennis trainers are either good teachers or good hitting partners. Alex is both, a rare breed!"
