He also volunteers as a coach at Sage Creek High School, also in Carlsbad. 

About MTM Dave says, "I have been utilizing the Modern Tennis Methodology in my teaching this past year and have found it to be easy for the students to understand and implement.  They get off to a fast start and progress quickly.  It’s quite comforting to know that they are being taught to play the game the way the top players it."
