Hello my name is Coach Mo and I’m a local Saint Petersburg tennis coach with over 40 years of playing experience and over 15 years of teaching experience! I’m also a PTR Certified Tennis Professional and Modern Tennis Methodology Certified. I am a very innovative tennis coach and instructor who is not confined by conventional thinking or methodologies. In my approach to teaching tennis, I use analogies from other sports and a variety of corrective techniques plus positive reinforcement. Not only do my students have fun on the court, but they develop a true love for tennis, a true thirst to learn more and a longevity mindset for the game. I learned to play tennis by hitting for hours on the tennis wall of the local high school in my hometown of Panama City, Florida. A former NAIA collegiate tennis player with a background in social and sports psychology, I am the author of 21st Century Tennis (available on Amazon). I teach both private and group tennis lessons, conduct group clinics, cardio tennis classes and work with individuals on the psychology of peak mental performance.
I am very passionate about helping my tennis students reach their highest potential and keeping them abreast with the latest changes in teaching methodologies and equipment technology. I am always first to introduce new training regiments, original drills and new-to-the-market tennis racquets and strings. Many of my students often say, “No one else has ever taught me that!” Additionally, I direct a high school tennis program and participated in the 2015 USTA adult 40 and over (4.5+) league national championships. When I’m not at the courts, I can be found enjoying reggae music, reading or listening to something related to personal development, relaxing on one of the beaches in St. Petersburg or enjoying my home-cooked meals!
As a Saint Petersburg tennis coach, I currently teach tennis lessons at St. Petersburg Tennis Center, Lake Vista Recreation Park and also Northwest Recreation Park but I am willing to travel up to 10 miles.
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 Saint Petersburg tennis coach. See you soon!
