Lessons are exclusively tailored to your personal learning and playing style following a 'white-glove' teaching paradigm, and your no-strings-attached customized introductory lessons are priced at $ 140 only for an hour's PRIVATE session. I never do Group Lessons. Sessions are exclusively 1-on-1. (The only caveat is I do family/close friend lessons with upto 3 more people, tops, no more, the rationale is to make sure you don't get lost in a crowd so as to ensure personalized training for you. I unfortunately can't provide other folks for sessions, these will be your contacts--Please feel free to call me for customized pricing regarding those).
With a private lesson with me, you'll typically learn faster than most other coaches since I'll incorporate fun games and drills, and play hard with you post-theory, unlike other pros who can unfortunately end up becoming human 'ball-machines', also since they're older/not current tournament players.
Location: Courts are in East Pasadena close to Caltech. Exact location will be texted to you upon confirmation of booking. Schedule: I teach Monday---Friday, 5 pm-10 pm, Sat---, 8 am-10 pm on an appointment basis exclusively. My spots go fast--so try to provide me at least a 5 days heads-up to book your desired spot
Lesson Prep: Lessons will have all the tennis training equipment you will need, including loaner rackets for the first couple of sessions, and can incorporate music (on your request). However, proper tennis shoes are highly recommended for the sessions. You can find a link on it here:. Running shoes are NOT recommended at all since they run the risk of ankle sprains during lateral runs during court drills. If you've already successfully booked a lesson with me, you just need water/electrolyte water, cap/sunscreen/shades for warm days, a light meal/energy bars prior, tennis apparel. Please feel free to advise me of mobility issues, if any, pre-lesson -- and also if there're any specific goals you have in mind ( skillset, cardio, pound-burner, tournament play etc). Please be counseled full meals pre-lesson can diminish your lesson performance- and runs the risk of retching. Reschedule/Cancel: I have a standard 48 hour cancel policy, else lessons are billed for, and this is typical protocol amongst most top LA tennis pros, but I'm sure you're stoked already, and will be there on court even before me for your appointment. That's it! Please message me if you have any follow-up questions, else I hope you're excited to kick-off.. :)
