Over the 20+ years I've learned to teach to the level of the student, starting with the skills the student already has and introduce new skills toward the student's goal. Voted the best swim instructor in Aurora 2015. Certified by: USA Swimming, the American Swimming Coaches Association, the American Red Cross, and the National Swimming Pool Foundation.
It is gratifying to see students expand their skills and even more so when they realize what it is that they have accomplished.
I start with a brief meeting, either in person, by phone or email, to determine the student's previous swim experience and future swim goals. Taking this knowledge, I start the lessons with skills that the student already possesses, enhancing those skills with minor adjustments, if necessary. Then, build on with new skills toward the goals. Continuing with each successive lesson.
