Hello my name is Dave and I have been teaching swim lessons for over 12 years. Swimming began for me at a very early age I went though all the swim levels I could and seemed to pick it up rather naturally. I went into high school and swam on my schools team all four years. I was also a member of the water polo team. I have been certified in CPR and First Aid. I have also been a Lifeguard just as long as a swim instructor. Every summer and winter I would teach swim lessons to anyone who wanted to learn. Kids, teens and adults. My main focus when I teach is keeping the lesson fun and engaging. I want my students to not only come away with swimming skills but also a feeling of enjoyment when being in the water. I have a different method of teaching for every level and age of student I have. I also understand that everyone learns differently and at their own pace. I always want my students to feel that by the end of the lesson they have faced a new challenge and have taken steps towards conquering it. Overall I am a fun laid back guy who loves to teach people how to swim. If you want to learn swimming in a fun, safe, and encouraging environment then I am the instructor for you!
