About this pro

-7 years of Swim Teaching

-1 year of High School Teacher Assistant 

-3 years of Community Organizing

MI have seven years of teaching experience working in various school locations in Chicago. I learned skills and techniques from all organizations which developed me as a premiere swim instructor. I am friendly, fun, and confident swim instructor able to fix any skill and turn it into technique. I stood out as the best at almost every swim organization I was a part of. I bring a lot of fun and enthusiasm into my swim lessons, backed by my experience I am the best candidate. I will ensure you are getting a high quality lesson, better than any organization I was a part of. Other organizations have politics involved that defer children from obtaining the skills in all catergories, they place boundaries on their potential. I do not. I can help you become into a better swimmer very quickly.

    In the beginning my lessons went well. Sergio's behavior changed and I had to terminate my lessons. I asked for my prepaid lessons to be refunded but he has ignored my requests. Not at all professional!! Janet N

    Sergio is an amazing instructor. As an adult who didn't know anything about swimming, I was surprised to be able to learn a lot of techniques in just two classes. He pays attention to your technique and postures and makes classes fun. You will not regret hiring Sergio as your instructor.

    Sergio is a great swim instructor and also I would like to compliment him on his interpersonal skills and professionalism that he shows.😊

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

Ensuring they are comfortable in the water before working on submerging their face. This will prepare them for their streamline where they will begin their kicks. Once they have strong kicks we will begin to work on our arms. We practice side breathing while rotating one arm so they could understand the expectations that comes with side breath. Then we will begin by swimming with two arms and will dedicate a tremendous amount of practice mastering this skill.

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

I have been working for a lot of swim schools over the Chicagoland area! I have been teaching for 7-years.

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

No, I charge a fixed rate depending on children or adults per lesson. I beat my competition in pricing. I could offer discounts if I am teaching more than one child. All lessons are private lessons.

How did you get started teaching?

I started as a lifeguard for Chicago Park District, began to teach for them little by little. After my tenure I approached teaching at swim schools. This is where I collected the amount of experience that allows me to excel in my field.

What types of students have you worked with?

All types of children! Even with children with disabilities.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I always love working with children are naturally adapt to the water. I can turn those kiddos into really good fundamental swimmers. Parents are always excited and it's a great feeling knowing I am performing my job well.

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

Think about the quality of the lesson, elsewhere you will get divided attention under a specific timeframe. I focus on your child solely to help maximize their potential.

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

If their child is ready to endure the practices of swimming, getting their face submerged and working those muscles!
