About Sam

Hello my name is Sam and I am a local Van Nuys tennis coach with over 9 years of playing experience and over 3 years of teaching experience! Teaching tennis has been a passion of mine for a while. My coach became a major figure in my life in shaping a lot more than my tennis game and I aim to do the same for anyone kind enough to consider me for the role. I like bringing smiles and laughter on the court in any way I can. If there’s a way to make the process fun for you, we’ll figure it out! I have experience coaching all levels and ages and have client-specific curriculums. Many of my tennis students are successful in USTA (United States Tennis Association) tournaments. I was a team tennis champion, played #1 singles on my high school varsity tennis team and I also won multiple USTA championships.

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 for all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So whether you need to work on some 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 teach lessons most heavily in the Van Nuys area at Hazeltine Park (Sherman Oaks), in West Hollywood at Poinsettia and Plummer Park (Los Angeles) and occasionally at the Westwood Tennis Center (LA).

Please 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, 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 Van Nuys tennis coach. See you on the court!

"I've been playing USTA tournaments for about a year. When I met coach Sam, he not only gave me the right advice, but he helped with my confidence as well. I was afraid to go out on the court and win matches but that changed after a few weeks of sessions. Glad I came across his profile-lessons are ongoing!"


Beverly Hills, California


"I came across Sam’s coaching profile through an ad on Craigslist. I was interested because he said he had been playing for over 10 years, but it seemed unlikely as he is fairly young. I was pleasantly surprised by his level of expertise and knowledge both on the technicalities of the game and as a hitting partner. I went in planning on taking one lesson, and am now on my 14th!"


Culver City, California


"Coach Sam has been a delight to play with since our first session. He’s a great tennis player and great company. As soon as my availability opened up he was ready and able to schedule our first session. We have another lesson scheduled for this week and I’m looking forward to it!"
