I have worked with Baruch college tennis team as a coach and help team win the conference title. Worked with Division 1 Coach as an assistant coach. Competed in High School and College tennis. While playing for Berkeley College we won HVIAC division title. Worked with US open as a coach. Along several years of teaching and playing tennis I have learned, a player plays their best tennis when they play how their body wants to play. We play our best tennis when we are relaxed and make our mind judge our body minimal. Over the years I have produced great results with players and look forward to make more people enjoy the lovely sport tennis.

Had an Awesome first lesson with Omar. I consider myself a beginner and Omar made me feel very comfortable right away.
By the end of the practice I felt like I was game ready.
Have already set up my second lesson !
I have taken many tennis lessons over the years and continue to have the same recurring problems. My first lesson with Omar, I did not mention things I wanted to work on. We just hit ground strokes and then I listened to his critique.
He started with my forehand, broke the stroke down into small components, stood on my side of the court feeding me the ball until I developed a feel and muscle memory and could reliably execute the movement correctly. Then we moved on to the next component of the stroke. Omar's method is quiet and understated but very effective.
He has corrected years of improper stroke mechanics and movement. Breaking mechanics into smaller components enabled me to analyze mishits. I'm relaxed but focused, my strokes and movement more fluid, reliably consistent, I'm more confident, and I'm having fun!
Backhand and serve? Yes!!! It has taken 3 months but my game is starting to evolve. Omar is Amazing!
Omar is extremely observant and thoughtful on stroke mechanics and movement and the game. I have taken occasional tennis lessons and taught myself resulting in a whole series of bad mechanics. Omar has thoughtfully diagnosed and is in the process of helping me correct technique.
I had originally thought I would have Omar just as a hitting partner to help me become more consistent and get some exercise but Omar has seriously changed my strokes and my game for the better. My forehand and my serve have dramatically improved. Omar has the ability to break the strokes down into parts, while keeping it natural and without overthinking the concepts. Especially for an amateur like me, keeping it simple is important and Omar has a great understanding of that. He is also able to quickly discern where mistakes are being made and addresses the problems. Highly recommend Omar!
Omar is a fantastic coach! He made lessons very interesting with lively conversations. He is very friendly and his techniques are amazing. Lessons with him are full value for money. He has lent me spare racquet at times when i broke the strings. Omar has been able to adjust his teaching style based on court type. I would highly recommend Omar as a tennis pro!
Omar was originally training my son and then I started training with him a year and a half ago. I saw my tennis game improve considerably over that period. He is able to help correcting technique without disrupting the flow and the enjoyment of the game. He is also able to adapt to different playing styles and training preferences. Highly recommended.
I’ve been working with Omar for the past few months, and my game has drastically improved! He’s simply Excellent, extremely professional, knowledgeable, and overall great at helping people perfect their skill set.
Within my first few lessons Omar has exposed and corrected the failures of previous instructors.
I had great first lesson with Omar! He really helped me with my form and we really packed a lot of good skills into the the hour without feeling overwhelmed. I would highly recommend, he really knows tennis
Omar is a methodical coach adept at breaking down skills into manageable components, all while making sure you have fun throughout. After a single lesson, I had a grasp of subtle but crucial adjustments.
Omar was quick to find small adjustments to my swing that I could take away and practice on my own. Proactive to provide feedback, clearly answered questions and gave solid advice. Look forward to next session.
Had a great first lesson with Omar! I’m a beginner, and his feedback helped me adjust my swing and pace quickly.
Omar is a great coach who immediately identified issues in my form and provided solutions that had me hitting with much more pace and control. Definitely excited to keep working with him to improve all aspects of my game!
