Darek H.

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!

I don't teach basketball really, but I can rebound and feed you accurate passes for you to practice your jumpers. I live downtown, but willing to travel. Hit me up!

Aaron was quite a good coach. I accomplished all my objectives. However, i live in Ventura and the lessons are in Los Angeles so the distance is too far for me. Therefore, i won't be signing up with "take lessons" for additional lessons.

Aaron is punctual, courteous, and incredibly knowledgeable. He directed lessons to address what I wanted to learn, but always made sure to bring practice materials and blank sheet music for the days I wanted to leave the curriculum in his hands.

His extensive education is crucial to his understanding of theory and composition, and with all his insight he was able to help me parse out my own pieces so that I could flesh out my own arrangements.

I not only received the guitar training I signed up for, but also invaluable teachings regarding gear, composition, theory, and performance. There was never a question I had that Aaron couldn't help me with.

He's an excellent teacher and an excellent person.

Dean H.

Encinitas, CA

My dad was the one of the best High School and College basketball players in Canada. I grew up playing with him and learning techniques from the best players in the world today. I have been on a mens league team for many years and have won the title in the City of Encinitas. I am 6'1" but did a vertical jumping program and taught myself how to grab the rim at first and then dunk. I have the fundamentals of a good shot and great ball handling abilities. I can play pickup at any park and have a great game.

Dean is awesome. We hired him to teach our 7 year old daughter and he includes my husband and I in the lesson too. It's really great that it's a family event. It's pretty amazing how he can work with us all at different skill levels. Plus he makes it fun. It's not just drills, but he has a ton of games that we play to reinforce those skills without making it feel like work. He focuses on our daughter and gives her great exercise in the process as well. He goes easy on us parents and doesn't make us run as much, which we appreciate! :-)

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.

Nicholas K.

Ardmore, PA

I've played basketball since I was in Elementary school, and now play for Clark University as a shooting guard. I am into the dynamics of basketball, and trying to be a player that helps his team the most, not just himself the most. Using techniques that I learned when I went to basketball camp, along with knowledge that I picked up through watching videos and actual gameplay, I will help my students play basketball to the best of their ability. Whether my student needs help on defense, dribbling, shooting or passing, I can help them do it all and be a team player once basketball season starts.

My son has improved exponentially with Nick's instruction! He makes tennis fun. I wanted my son to get good exercise and to learn the sport. He didn't look forward to it at first, but now going to a lesson is just hangout time and he can't wait to go.

Nicholas gave my 9-year old grandson, Aidan, a total of four one-hour lessons and in that time my grandson got Impressively better at playing and became enthusiastic about the game. Nicholas was the perfect instructor for Aidan. He taught him the fundamentals but kept the lessons fun. He related easily with Aidan. I would recommend Nicholas to anyone with a beginner player.

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!
