What I enjoy most about being a swim instructor is being in the water. Swimming has multiple aspects ranging from safety and wellness to interaction and education, and I equally enjoy each of them.

    Taj is very patient with my 8 yo. He is also knowledgeable of the correct swimming techniques. My son has definitely improved his strokes, and we have signed up for additional lessons.



FAQs


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

My typical process for working with a new student is to establish a level of understanding and comfort. Individuals have to understand the importance of structure; the potential danger; and have a sense of comfort to trust me enough to try a skill they are scared of.


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

I have been a swimmer for 40+ yrs. I have been a Lifeguard for 20+ yrs. I have been a Lifeguard Instructor and a Water Safety Instructor for 15+ yrs. I am an EMT. Most important of all, I have taught my 4 children to swim.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching via the "natural evolution of a fond swimmer". Being a "pool rat" hanging at the public pool all day, every day. Then becoming a lifeguard and working for the "City of Atlanta". Once I started with the city I wanted to learn all I could to become a better swimmer.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a variety of students and levels ranging from special needs to advanced.


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

The advice I would give to someone looking to hire a teacher is to make sure the teacher is challenging the student with new skills and adding to their skill set
