Lawrence's resume

Thank you very much for considering me as your Tennis Instructor.
I have taught Youth and Adult Tennis for Ypsilanti Township for the past 20 years.
I began teaching Tennis for Play Your Court in April 2019. I have taught Medical Doctors employed by the University of Michigan, Engineers, and a wide variety of people.
I’ve had a great love for tennis since childhood, but I did not learn to play until I took a class at Eastern Michigan University. I discovered the EMU Basketball Coach was teaching the Tennis Class. I thought he would just blow off the class because he would focus on coaching basketball and not teaching tennis. I quickly discovered Al Freund, took the class very seriously. I enjoyed the class very much and began to play recreationally, play in local tournaments and follow tennis more seriously. In fact, years later I had the opportunity to talk with Coach Freund after an EMU Alumni game. I told Coach Freund how grateful I was to be in his tennis class, and I thought he would not take the class seriously. Coach Freund told me that he was an Assistant Coach under Coach James Dutcher. Coach Dutcher got the job as the basketball coach at the University of Minnesota and Al Freund was selected as the Head Coach at EMU. Coach Dutcher advised Coach Freund to take the Health & Physical Education classes seriously because you never knew when you might be fired as a College Basketball Coach and you had to depend on teaching classes to earn a living.
I have taught tennis for over 20 years with Ypsilanti Township, the City of Hamtramck, and at Palmer Park in Detroit, MI. I was offered Tennis Instructor position through the United States Tennis Association – Southeastern Michigan Chapter. I am a Certified Instructor through the United States Professional Tennis Association.
I attended the University of Michigan Adult Tennis Camp for six years. I’ve played in the City of Ann Arbor Tennis Tournament over 20 years.
I teach youth tennis basic drills I learned from Mike Woody (Former Executive Director of Tennis at the Midland Tennis Center) and Jorge Capestany of Capestany Tennis.
I emphasize the importance of dribbling a tennis ball with a Tennis Racket is comparable to learning to dribble a basketball to beginning to learn to play Tennis and Basketball respectively.
I also use drills I learned from former Stanford University Tennis Coach, Dick Gould.

Thank you for your consideration.
All the Best!
