About this pro

I've been a swimmer for the past 10 years and I really want to share the skills with other people. I would love to teach people and help them master every stroke! I am a certified lifeguard and I've been teaching children how to swim for the past year.

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

When working with new students, I like to get them used to what they will be doing. Since swimmers need to have their face it the water, I usually have my student start by blowing bubbles, then submerging their face until water touches their nose, and finally getting the whole face in the water.

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

I have been swimming for about 10 years and I currently work as a lifeguard/swim instructor at goldfish swim school.

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

I don't like to keep my prices high to the the point where my customers can't afford the classes so I keep the price at $100 per month.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many students. Students that are really calm and students that are really afraid of water, but that's why I get everyone comfortable before jumping right to the swimming.

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

Look for teachers that have a lot of temper and are able to communicate clearly to your understanding.

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

Questions that are important during sessions are like the following..."How do I turn my arms when doing this stroke?", "Where should my head be looking when I swim?", "How do I float?"
