Ms. Caroline Gilbert

Sport resume

 

My love for teaching, excellent relationship-building skills, and elite tennis ability make me the ideal candidate to join your team of professional coaches. Precise and practiced coaching tactics crossed with my affable attitude have allowed me to deliver professional training to all age groups and levels for over 13 years. I have been fortunate that my professional coaching career has taken around the world- from Ethiopia, to De Grassi Point on Lake Simcoe, Canada, all the way to Vermont, USA.
