Tennis hitter and coach for private tennis lessons in Central London. Available to play with all levels.

Methodology

My core belief is that the best way to improve your tennis is to focus on ONE thing at a time, until you've mastered it, rather than overloading your mind with many different tips.

Repetition is the best way to ingrain a new habit, which is why it is important to not only receive coaching advice, but then to go away and practise what you have learnt by hitting and playing regularly.

I provide a strong hitting and playing partner, and am happy to help work on whatever your need to practice.

Experience

I am an advanced collegiate-level player. I trained at Bolletieri-IMG Academy and Billy Stearns Academy in Florida in the full-time programmes, and was offered a full scholarship to a Division 1 University in the USA. In the UK, I was offered a place on the Sutton Tennis Scholarship Programme.

I continue to play to a high level - representing my Club in the Premier Division, and competing on the ITF Seniors Circuit.

I am DBS registered, and a qualified LTA coach, and have Emergency First Aid at Work.

LESSON RATES

Individual lesson £40 p/h peak times

Fee is inclusive of travel costs for locations in ZONE 1 only. Please enquire regarding fee for other locations.

Please note that this fee DOES NOT INCLUDE cost of court hire!

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, unless in the event of poor weather.

Due to extremely high demand over this summer and also due to coronavirus, I have a very full schedule and limited capacity for new clients. However, please do send me a lesson request (with your location and available time and I will get in touch to arrange)


*CORONAVIRUS POLICY* - as of 18th May 2020

Tennis has been identified by the Government as one of the best examples of social distancing in practice, and so should be encouraged as long as the guidance permits.

The Government has currently indicated that outdoor tennis played at a safe distance from others is permitted at this time.


In line with the Government and LTA advice, for private lessons I will by adopting the following precautions:

- Individual lessons only, 1 on 1

- Avoid close proximity when giving feedback

- Ensure no physical contact between players during warm-ups or games

- I will not be allowing racquet sharing, and will not be lending out racquets (clients will need to provide their own racquets)

- I will be using a small number of balls per lesson, so these can replaced more often. Therefore, live ball drills will be emphasised over basket drills.

I also advise players adopting best practice in relation to their own hygiene, especially before and after training sessions, including but not limited to:

- Players should wash hands before and after a tennis session without exception (or use an alcohol gel if washing hands is not possible)

- Avoid touching your face

- Avoid 'high-fiving' or hand shaking

We started lessons with Samantha a couple of weeks ago and she is just great. She spotted right away some mistakes in my tennis technique and we have been practicing to improve them since then! She is also a very nice and cheerful person so I always look forward to our next session!

I highly recommend Samantha for her precise and methodical teaching style, which proved the most effective for me. Samantha has extensive experience and patience, enabling me to learn the correct techniques fast. I genuinely enjoy our sessions and improve markedly each time which is important for me.

Having had a few hitting sessions with Samantha, I would be very happy to recommend her. She is a highly experienced player, with a great technique and ability to adjust her game to the other player. These sessions have been very helpful to make the most of my abilities and to improve. Eliza
