Dear Ms. Agnes Whaley,
I am very excited about the Tennis Coach position now available with Loyola Marymount University.
I have always had a passion for tennis and I started playing when I was very young. I took tennis lessons for a while and competed in tennis tournaments for several years. Now that I no longer compete, I would like to use my skills and training to coach others and help new aspiring tennis players perfect their game.
I have great communication and interpersonal skills, which is very important when teaching students how to improve their form. I also have active listening skills with the ability to pay close attention to the students. This way, I can accurately address any concerns they may have and answer questions that will help them learn proper techniques.
I can adapt to different surroundings when coaching and I have the ability to teach groups or give private lessons for individuals. I also have the ability to coach all skill levels from the beginner to the advanced player. I have the skills to determine the goals of the students and to use this information combined with their current abilities to put together lesson plans that will help them accomplish these goals.
I can explain specific techniques to my students and teach them the correct form to use when serving the ball, proper swing, grip, stance and proper footwork. I have the ability to explain areas where students need improving while providing encouragement and motivating them to push to their fullest potential. I also have CPR and first aid training and I always put the safety of my students first.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (111)-426-7460.
