21 years of teaching swim lessons, Started at the age of 12. I have been trained by numerous teachers across the states. Certified in multiple curriculums. I have worked in multiple fassets to open water, indoor/outdoor pools, Olympic facilities, government manicipalities, Universities and more.

Price based on skillset. The more advance in skill the higher the fee.
I have worked from 6 mothns old to 98 years old.
I have worked with those with deep rooted fears so bad that getting near the water was a problem to working with Disabled children and adults. I have worked with multiple disabilities! I have worked with small town community programs to large city programs, even olympic programs. I have custome designed curriculums for tri athletes.
Currenlty working with an 11 year old for almost one year now. When she first came in she could barley keep her head out of the water. Not only did she get herself on swim team after two months of working with me but she is not slicing times off her meets like a dolphine with a jet engine. I think whats helped the most was the 11 year old helping out in swim lessons. Teaching what you are learning helped give her the extra understanding of hydrodynamics.
It's always about the student, the minuet it's not it's time to change teachers!
What are you real expectations out of learning how to swim. My goal as an instructor is not to make you a super swimmer, though that would be awesome. My primary goal is to get each student to have the skill sets to keep them safe in any aquatic enviroment, while having fun and being healthy.
