About Mark


Hello my name is Mark and I am a local Woodside tennis coach with over 25 years of playing experience and over 10 years of teaching experience! I graduated from USC a few years ago. While at USC, I was hitting partner and manager to the Division I Men’s Tennis Team which won the NCAA National Championship back in 2014. After graduating, I helped manage and coach a professional player (who hit a career-high of #119 in the world), even going to the U.S. Open with him in 2017, when he made it into the main draw (and won a round). I am now a lead coach for Stanford Nike Tennis Camp and Cardinal Clinic under Stanford Mens Tennis Coaches, Paul Goldstein and Brandon Coupe. Aside from that, I coach private lessons around the area. Fun fact-I have a win (years ago playing in juniors) over a current top 50 player in the world. Fun fact-I am coach to TV Talk Show Host, Dr. Phil. In addition, I coach the President of the Tennis Channel, Ken Solomon. “I’ve been playing competitive tennis for over 40 years and Mark has truly been a game changer!”-Dr. Phil, Talk Show Host. “If I didn’t have to actually run Tennis Channel, I would be on the court with Mark all the time! He is a terrific teacher and great fun to be around”-Kenneth Solomon, President of Tennis Channel”.

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 tennis lessons in the Woodside, Atherton, Menlo Park, Palo Alto and the Redwood City area but I will also travel up to 10 miles.

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 Woodside tennis coach. See you on the court!
