“Amazing Tennis!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We were in Marco for Spring Break and I signed up our kids for lessons with Susan. I couldn't believe how she zeroed in on what each kid needed work on. I came back to pick up my youngest daughter and she had her moving all over the court. Before this we always told her to move her feet but it never happened. Susan taught her this. We are thrilled with the progress she made in this short time! Our other two kids learned helpful strategies and skills from Susan. They appreciated the games and points they played with her. They felt the tips she gave them were helpful for playing in their high school tennis matches. Susan was kind, patient, and our family highly recommends her. Thank you Susan!

Kathy, what a fabulous review! Many thanks for taking the time to write one and it was a real pleasure meeting you and your children. I really enjoyed working with them, great kids and they have such nice games as well! And Sara is on her way with her new and improved footwork! I love that your whole family plays, that is wonderful! It's the best game and can be a family affair! Many thanks and I wish you all continued success and enjoyment on the tennis court with each other! All the best, Susan :)

After being out of tennis for ten years, it was a great surprise to find Susan and take a week of lessons last month from her. She was very helpful in moving my game upward!!

“ICC Team Drills”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Susan worked with our 3.5 team and we had our best season ever!
She helped us so much with court placement, setting up our net partner. Coming to the net with pressure, and using soft hands close to net with low balls.
Drills with Susan were so helpful, we are looking forward as a team to having Susan work with us next season.

Julie, many thanks for your so very kind review! It was all my pleasure and privilege to have the opportunity to work with you and your 3.5 team at your beautiful ICC. I love doubles and love to share my enthusiasm and passion with others. We had great fun together and I saw lots of progress over the course of the season. You were a terrific group of gals to work with, very receptive and easy going. Lots of laughs and smiles and lions and tigers in the making! You all did extremely well and should be very proud and pleased! Keep it goin', onwards and upwards! Many thanks, Julie (Heidi)! :) All the best and I look forward to next year and more tennis fun! Susan :)

“Fun and Helpful”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Have taken a number of clinics and had a great time with excellent pointers. Susan is very patient, and not only explains WHAT to do, but WHEN it is helpful to do it in doubles.

Kendallmarco, thank you very much for your review! I love to teach doubles and help people with their doubles tactics and strategies, it is such a fun, exciting and fast-paced game and calls for different skills sets then the singles game. I am so pleased that I was able to help you and that you enjoyed your time on the court and learned, that is the goal! Keep enjoying and improving! All the best and thanks again, Susan :)

“Repeat Performance!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

This was my second vacation in Marco Island and it would not be the same if I did not spend another week hitting with Susan. She was such a great instructor and my experience was so positive last year that I came back for another week's worth of lessons.
Susan has a great eye and was quickly able to make minor adjustments to improve my game. I was simply looking to get some exercise each day while on vacation with my wife and young children. However, with Susan's fun and competitive drills, I got so much more! I look forward to coming back next year and continuing to make this a regular thing.
