Learn Tennis With James!

Hi! My name is James Cuartero & I’m a tennis instructor offering private & group lessons to juniors & adults of all skill levels in the Philadelphia / South Jersey area. I’ve been playing since I was six years old, through junior tournaments, high school & college and have been coaching regularly for the past five years.

My coaching method is to grow a player’s game around a solid foundation, build confidence through achievable progress & most importantly help players enjoy the game of tennis at the following levels:

  • Introducing beginners to the game
  • Helping intermediate players develop strokes & consistency to help them get to the next level
  • Working with advanced players to devise strategies that feature their strengths & minimize weaknesses in order to be match-ready

The life lessons & benefits of playing tennis are numerous! It can be played socially or competitively, you only need two people, a minimum of equipment to play and you can play at any age! I still play with my parents – with how many other sports can you say that?

Coaching Experience

  • Head Coach for Paul VI Boys & Girls Tennis since 2013 w/ a number of All-Conference players on both teams
  • Private instruction in the Philadelphia / South Jersey area with children as young as 5, juniors & adults of varying skill levels
  • Assistant Tennis Instructor w/ Jonathan Newman at Haverford School w/ students age 9-11

Personal Tennis History

  • Former top 10 NJTA / top 25 MSTA junior player
  • Former member of Rutgers University Men’s Tennis Team
