President of the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA)

Tutu Baruah understands, through personal experience, what it takes to become a great tennis player. Tutu has paid the price, he has walked the road, and he has dealt with the joys of success and challenges of career threatening injury. As a result, Tutu knows how to assist players to move from one level to the next, from a recreational level to a competitive junior and from a competitive junior to a professional impact player. I have great respect for Tutu and his coaching ability. It would not surprise me to see one his students successfully on the professional tour.

Tutu is the most knowledgeable coach I have ever met. He not only is able to see incorrect structure of any aspect of the game but to also provide the correct and incorrect methods. His understanding of the game, I believe, competes with the best coaches in the world!

Since the time I have trained with Tutu, I have become a completely transformed player.He has worked with me not only on the physical aspects of the game, but has given me invaluable knowledge to boost my mental understanding. Probably the best thing about our training is how he challenges me in every session. We set goals and when one is achieved, he sets the bar higher.

Father of Student

My daughter began playing junior USTA tournaments when she was 10 years old, with good success. However, after two years, she found herself reaching a plateau in her development. With a plan to be proactive in addressing her needs, our family reached out to Tutu. We had seen outstanding results with other students training with Tutu, and felt his method might be the right fit for our daughter.

Our family interviewed with Tutu, with the intention of his overseeing our daughter’s tennis development moving forward. My wife and I were very impressed with the interview process.  Tutu asked pointed questions about our family dynamics, our parenting philosophy and our daughter’s motivation for wanting to reach her fullest potential. The interview was as much for us as it was for him, and it helped him establish his expectations prior to the start of training.

Since beginning her training, my daughter is more eager than ever to master her new skills. She is being retaught the fundamentals behind her stance, her serve and her swing. Tutu provides structure and thoughtful planning to each training session and it is clear he intends to follow through on his plan to create a stronger, more powerful player. We are impressed with the fact that Tutu encourages an open line of communication, not only with our daughter, but with my wife and myself. As her coach, he stresses the fact that he needs to be a part of her life, as issues off of the court can affect many aspects of her game.

It is clear, Tutu’s experience, knowledge, and passion are second to none in the tennis profession. We are highly encouraged by the transformation we are seeing in our daughter and we look forward to her returning to the game, a stronger player.
