Felicia Wills Swim Instructor
Safety comes first with all ages, so I start with teaching safety techniques first! Once they understand that, we start with basic swimming movements, over time practicing with them and correcting, we move through other swimming movements. Some take more time than others, but I enjoy repetition! I usually start lessons at 3 months, the sooner the better!! Consistency is key in overcoming fear!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to meet with my student first, learn what their comfortable with in the water. Then we go from there!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Ive been swimming since I was a little one! Growing up I've been lifeguard certified, CPR/AED certified, and have continued swimming! And have also had experience teaching swim through a growing company.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
It depends on what you the student, or parent of the student what to learn, and how long the lessons go on for.
How did you get started teaching?
I had a real passion for teaching kids, and even teens. And one day I got the opportunity to teach them swim lessons through a great company.
What types of students have you worked with?
3 months up until 16 years old.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Im not sure I could choose just one! Teaching children can be so amazingly rewarding. Seeing them progress and move up to new skills is really rewarding!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
I would say look out for teachers that don't think safety is the number 1 priority. Because water safety is a huge topic in the world right now! And teaching swim lessons is a serious job.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What they want to get out of their experience, what they are comfortable with and what they are not.
