In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I started playing tennis at age 9, and playing tournaments at age 14. I began teaching beginner and intermediate level tennis at 15 years old at Longview Parks & Rec in Longview, WA.
I was ranked in the top 10 in the Pacific NW from 15-18 years old and walked on at University of Oregon and played 2nd doubles and 4th singles my freshman and sophomore years 1987-1989.
I have taught in Longview, WA at Mint Valley Racquet Complex, at Brenimel Tennis Club in Oaxaca, Mecico, and in Carmel, CA at Carmel Valley Tennis Camp.
I enjoy teaching all ages and no matter what their level of play, can guarantee immediate improvement and a deeper love for the game of tennis.
