San Francisco, CA

I have been coaching for four years. I am 22 years old and am planning to go play basketball professionally overseas this fall of 2015. I have taught kids of all ages from 5 to 20 years of age. I am very involved when I teach, and everything I teach I have either done or am currently doing. Base on your skill level I will create a workout for your individual success to make sure that you are getting better on and off the court

My son really listened to Darek. With just one lesson he already has more control of the ball. I really appreciated him giving my son a small notebook/journal to write in anything about basketball and also how he wrote down what he wanted my son to work on until next session!!!

Darek really listens, and he understands. So far, he's doing what I request and not just his own program, and he really seems to be able to relate to the younger kids. He's a fantastic teacher and a fantastic person!

Dr. Drobman was very understanding when I missed a lesson and provided me with a free make up lesson. Its clear he knows logic circuits in depth and he provided me with a hand drawn sheet of diagrams and information every week to bolster each lesson.

As a former D1 football player, I participated in both 5A Varsity basketball as well as multiple traveling teams that took me across Texas. I have coached youth basketball as well as high-school athletes. I can help reinforce fundamental and strengthen overall athletic ability with particular training. I will also challenge you one on one to elevate your game and critique your skills as a mentor and opponent.

My experience with Michael has been fantastic. I needed his help to sharpen my interview skills and he was just what the doctor ordered. He does a thorough homework, has very keen observation and provides some useful tips. Highly recommend him.

I've been playing and teaching basketball for over 13 years and can help you reach your goals whether you want to take it seriously or as a hobby.

When taking lessons from me you will learn the fundamentals of how to play basketball, as well as skills that help you become an all around basketball athlete such as dribbling, shooting, passing, defense and fitness.

We may not be the next Stephen Curry, but, we can all learn to appreciate the sport of basketball by learning the fundamentals. Knowing which way to run, screen, pass, shoot, and rebound makes basketball a physical as well as mental exercise!

I learned both the Religious Studies and Bible Studies subjects from Austin. I am so grateful for how patient, clear, and kind he is to his students. Especially because I am a slow-learner. He always takes the extra time as well as effort to help you feel comfortable and confident! Highly recommend him.

Austin taught me all about weight lifting. He helped me to achieve great form that would prevent any future injuries while also seeing much progress!

Instruction Details:
I offer great insight into the game. I encourage the fundamentals for all players while allowing room for flexibility. My main goal for all players is to allow them to have options on the court.
