I am a former professional tennis player with 23 years of coaching experience from Russia. In Russia I have worked with many kids, who subsequently played international level tournaments.
I have been coaching tennis in Minnesota for the past 7 years. In my 7 years in MN I have given private tennis lessons to 143 happy clients, both kids and adults. 12 of my kids were in their respective varsity teams. Many of the adults whom I worked with had never played tennis before in their lives and because of me have now reached level 4 in local leagues. Some of my trainees are between 60 and 70 years old and just a few years ago couldn't play tennis at all. They are now enjoying the benefits of this beautiful game as a part of their healthy lifestyle.
My clients, both kids and adults, have been asked numerous times by tennis coaches of local health clubs, varsity teams, etc. :"How long have you been playing tennis for?" When the answer was "two-three years" those coaches found it hard to believe. I pride myself in teaching the best tennis technique.
Tennis has always been the favorite thing in my life (apart from my family). I am 49 years old and still competitive at 4.5 - 5.5 level. I am looking for new clients in the area - both kids and adults. I speak fluent English and Russian and can provide numerous references upon request.
Thank you, Val.
