Washington, DC

I have been fortunate enough to play basketball on every level from recreation leagues to middle and high school to in college, AND even received an invitation to tryout professionally overseas! Additionally, I have coached ages from 4 all the way to 35. Depending on your skill set and desire, I will base my teaching and goals on mastering the fundamentals of the game, this will allow you to compete with anyone. And while I am teaching, I love to jump right in and participate in drills.

I played a good deal back in the day. My specialty was in my speed and intercepting the ball from the other team. I can help you improve your dribbling and offensive as well as defense skills. Also to help you improve on your shot skills. Want someone to play against 1v1 in a community gym? I'm here!

Mary was a great patient person. Even though I didn't know anything about typing, she was patient and willing to help me learn typing. I did not feel like she was exactly the kind of instructor I needed, but she helped explain some of the basics of typing in a way that made it understandable and readily easy to grasp and use to understand how to type. I definitely recommend her for someone who needs to refresh himself or herself with typing information.

Thank you,
Nicholas

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

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!

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.
