About Adam

 

Good day and thank you for taking the time to consider me as a great fit for your tennis needs!  I have been teaching kids and adults of all ages and levels this wonderful and lifelong sport for 25 years. I attended the Bollettieri Academy in Florida where I was a member of the USTA National Championship Team.

 

I am USPTR certified and have taught at several Country Clubs and tennis programs in Los Angeles County.  I have been with LA Tennis since 1998. I am always voted the most favorite Pro by kids, adults, and parents. I teach private, semiprivate, clinics and group lessons.

 

I am a very supportive, patient, and encouraging teacher with a keen eye to detail. I am able to help each student improve in a way that is best suited to their own unique style, level and ability!

 

Every person I teach has different needs, and they all have their own strengths and weaknesses. So, I don't teach the same method to every student. Instead, I am able to teach and customize the best method and approach to what that specific student needs in order to improve quicker!

 

 I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on the court! :)

About Ernest

Hi! My name is Ernest. I played varsity #2 singles and #1 doubles at Hart High School in Santa Clarita, California. 

 

As a late starter with tennis, I went from serving underhanded at age 15 to challenging for the top singles spot on my lineup by senior year. That two-year metamorphosis was one of the critical moments in my life. I developed discipline, grew my self confidence, and most importantly learned that any goal was achievable if I put in the work. 

 

As a coaching professional, I have worked at the Ritz Carlton hotel, Youth League Tennis and currently serve as the head tennis coach at YULA Boys High School.

 

I’m a 5.0 level player with an aggressive baseline game. My coaching philosophy is based on the premise of the "4 hour work week", namely that focusing on smaller, practical elements of something can often streamline the development of a skill. Sometimes it isn’t the amount of time on a task, but the specificity of the focus that leads to rapid improvement. It’s for this reason I teach my students smaller, more compact groundstrokes... like Stan Wawrinka or Andre Agassi. 

 

I live in Mid-Wilshire with my wife, Lana. My long term goals are growing a real estate business and training a Wimbledon champion.
