Head Tennis Instructor

I was given my second formal job as a tennis teacher by Montgomery County Parks and Recreation. I learned to allow teachers under me to do their jobs. At first I was a little too hands on, but discovered that I was working with good people.

About Me

I was born in a small east Texas town in 1953. I had no idea I would grow to love teaching tennis as much as I do. I began loving to teach when working in Dallas in the mid 1970s teaching for the YWCA. I had to cart my tennis balls around on a 10 speed bike with baskets on each side.

I played tennis in various ametuer tournaments around the country, mostly in the east and eastern midwest of the USA.

I began teaching again in 1996 in Dayton OH to assist with a NJTL program. That is when I discovered that I can really help people comfortable learn this game.

In different parts of this expression of me there will be explanations of my main philosophy in teaching tennis. You have ways to contact me and I hope you use them with any questions.



2015 - Present - Future

I am constantly learning from my student/clients.
