    Coach Mina’s teaching style is impeccable! He’s very professional yet relatable and kind at the same time which makes the kids feel comfortable. Honestly, his lessons encompass not only swimming but also how to overcome obstacles in and out of the water. Overall, loved him and will definitely be coming back! P.s. the Kids LOVE the candy and toys he brings for them!

    Mina was not only skillful, but also very patient. He pushed me to do my best ever weeks, so by the third lesson I had improved drastically. He goes beyond the necessary to nake the most of your time.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, we treat every swimmer according to their level of assessment . We start by seeing what the student knows, then we ask for the objective goal. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

As swim instructors, we are required  by the Red Cross code to attend a monthly in-service in order to be updated with current rescues and new teaching methods.

We are proudly certified in the following: 

- First aid by the Red Cross 

- Tittle 22 ( EMT Emergency training ) by the Red Cross 

- CPR and oxygen administration by the Red Cross 

- AED and swim rescues techniques by the Red Cross 

- Water safety instructor certificate by the Red Cross

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Our prices are fair and reasonable for the quality you will receive. We treat every customer according to their needs, however, we assess pricing with respect to age, number of enrollee, session duration, and distance location.

What types of students have you worked with?

We specialize in teaching infants between the age of 9 months to 2 year, and young kids between the age of 3 years old to 7 years old. We have experience working with adults from the age 35 years old to 60 years old, which is more focused on strength and fear free from water.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

They are several events we are fond of, but to be brief we once had a child that is aged 3 and half years old joined our swimming lessons to overcome an anxiety that was conducted by a poorly trained instructor that resulted a long term fear of the water. We approached the situation with ease and plethora of patience, we started with games and then little by little water games to implement bubbles blowing then later on  we progressed by putting  his face in the water then submerged head. Jack now is one of our strong young swimmer that can swim independently without being afraid to swallow water or come up for breath by himself. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

" Trust in the process, it will take time" 

we adore this quote because it takes time to build confidence, it takes time to fail and try again, it takes time to perfect a stroke. 

Some students are gifted to pick up instructions and learn immediately, however some students take time. We ask you for your patience and effort. 

We are delighted to be teaching for quite awhile, which give us the edge of teaching efficient methods that can be applied to realize the goal you desire to reach at a faster pace.
