Larry is the BEST EVER! He is very professional and has a great work ethic. He gives the proper skills and techniques needed to be successful on the court. If you have a certain game style, he caters to your style and doesn’t make you change to a new style. The practices are high quality, with lots of hitting. I leave practice knowing how to correct my mistakes, while also being able to apply new techniques on the court during each match. I love being able to talk to him about situational issues and having them resolved by the end of the practice. Larry began teaching me how to serve a few years ago, and now he has taken my whole game to new heights! I wouldn’t trust any other person with my tennis game! He is highly recommended!
I was incredibly fortunate to have met Larry at a time when I was starting to take tennis more seriously and was looking to take my game to the next level. Larry did a great job picking apart the bad habits I had developed in my game, and made my game much more technically sound. He does a great job simplifying the game, appearing to have it down to a science. Whether strategic or psychological, his coaching on the mental side of tennis drastically improved my game. Often Larry watched me play points, and would talk me through what mindset I had during the points. Larry has had great success as a tennis player (he has experience on the pro tour and is currently ranked in the top 10 in his age group), so getting his insight on what to think about during matches was tremendously helpful. I took lessons from Larry for 5-6 years, and during this time my ranking improved tremendously. Larry is a high-performance coach who can get the best out of any student at any level. Easily the best coach I have ever had!
Larry is the best coach I have ever had. Extremely patient, very experienced as a teacher, and a very great player himself. He can teach everything including technique, footwork, point construction, etc. He also teachers all levels and all ages and really cares about his players improving! 5 star coach
Larry has taught my son, age 6 1/2, for just over a year, and he has been great with him. He understands what a young child can and cannot do and knows how to explain things very simply so my son understands. My son has improved dramatically since he started lessons with Larry and he now really loves to play. I enthusiastically recommend Larry as a tennis instructor for your children.
I took individual and group lessons from Larry for the past 5 years on a regular basis. Group lessons usually averaged two to three hours and individual lessons usually for one hour and a half. We usually work on different strokes each session and I always enjoyed our sessions. Larry always asked if there is a particular stroke I want to work on before the session and we worked on improving a particular stroke through repetition and adjustments. He is always energetic and will rally the balls rather than just feeding the balls from the basket. I played competitive tennis in national senior tournaments in my age group and after working with Larry over the years I made great gains in rankings and won many more matches. Larry always summarize the things we work on at the end of the session as an reinforcement. He will follow up on the next session to see if I had a chance to implement the changes in matches or practice. He is also very helpful in terms of giving strategic advice for playing against different type of players. I would recommend Larry highly if you want to improve your game.
I’ve been taking lessons from Larry for several years. I’ve taken both group and individual lessons. Larry is patient and knowledgeable. Larry is a teacher and a player. He’s a ranked tournament player. Not only can he teach you how to hit a tennis ball, he can teach you how to play tennis. So, if you want to improve your strokes, improve your play or both, Larry can guide you… I currently take individual lessons from him. That’s actually the highest compliment that I can give him. And the strongest recommendation I can give you…
My son has been taking tennis lessons for a few years and Larry is by far the best coach he has had. Larry is extremely knowlegeable and focuses on fundamentals and technique (as opposed to some instructors who just teach kids silly “games”). He is also kind and patient. I have also observed him teaching adults and was impressed, as well. Overall, I would highly recommend him.
Best tennis lessons I have ever taken. Larry is an excellent teacher. He is very good at tips to improve your strokes. Been taking lesson for a few year. Lots of improvement to my game. Larry usually starts a lesson by asking how you have been playing for the past week and what would you like to work on today. Highly recommend.
I am an adult tennis player and I have taken lessons from Larry for several years now. What I value the most in Larry is his ability not just to assess what you are doing wrong, but also that he identifies the one or two corrections that will lead most quickly to improved strokes. And then each time I take the next lesson, Larry adds the next one or two changes that advance me even further. Larry emphasizes fundamentally sound tennis and he himself continues to be a top ranked open player, so he can teach effectively from beginners to top players. I recommend him in the highest terms!
I had a series of private lessons with Larry to correct my net game. To improve at every level proper evaluation and technique development is essential. Larry was able to point out my technical errors and develop drills to improve my volleys. Within the next ratings year I was bumped from a 4.0 to a 4.5. I currently work with Larry twice a month in a semi group environment to reinforce proper strokes and develop new skills for game improvement . From beginner to advanced , every person will benefit from proper instruction and Larry has proven himself to myself and a great number of other players to be an exceptional professional.
