FAQs


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

The first step is to schedule an orientation in person or over the phone.  During this time I introduce myself, describe my experience and background.  I also answer any questions the customer has at that time.  Once the necessary information has been relayed we move to schedule the first lesson.  During the first lesson I will assess the student and develop a training program that works specifically for them.  If the assesment goes well and the client is satisfied we then confirm the rest of the schedule for the month or further out depending on availability.

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

I charge $60 per hour or$30 for a half hour.  To offset costs more than one student can attend the same class as long as it doesn't effect the quality of training. It is $5 for each additional student per half hour.  


How did you get started teaching?

I came from a Navy family that has roots from the attack on Pearl Harbor.  I grew up in Florida and lived in Hawaii.  I have always or long been an active swimmer, scuba diver, surfer, river kayaker, free diver, and spearfisher.  Through organizations like the Boy Scouts of America I developed leadership skills and starting helping kids on my swim team as early as 16 years old.  In 2009 I started working with Atlanta Scuba and Swim Centers as a Scuba Instructor.  Because of my background in swimming they quickly realized I would make a great swim instructor.  Soon I was being asked for private lessons at a rate I could not ignore.  Now I have many affiliations with the aquatic centers and swim teams all over Atlanta and North Metro Atlanta. 


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages and skill levels.  From 6 months old to seniors needing specialized training.  I also have experience with special needs students, military and triathalon training. Everything from Swim teams, large families, individual training and infants.


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

Please make sure you have explored all options before deciding which instructor is best for you.  I will gladly educate anyone willing to learn what resources are available to them for free.  It is my obligation to the community to make sure everyone gets the best training and the most options.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Does the instructor have a good understanding of your goals?

Are they willing to listen to your input when asking about a students experience?

Do they put the students interests first?

Ego is a big thing with many coaches and instructors.  Make sure the instructor is willing to listen to any concerns you have and isn't quick to write them off.  If you think something isn't right, seek another opinion and don't be afraid to speak up.
