I have worked as a lifeguard and water safety instructor for around 5 years now and I absolutely love it! Teaching kids and adults ranging from ages 4-50+ has been the most rewarding job I've had!

I will evaluate the swimmers skill level and prepare a lesson plan from there. Checking to see what the swimmer needs to work on is the biggest priority I have, I want to make sure they are proficient and strong as opposed to swimming in correctly.
I have Red Cross lifeguard instructor training, lifeguard training, water safety instructor training, CPR and AED training.
$50.00 per lesson, I work by hour. The class would be 50 minutes of work (but also fun) and then that will be followed by free time where the student/child can go off and swim freely with my/guardians supervision.
When I first became a lifeguard I was offered to take a training class through my job to teach lessons, and I thought it would be a great idea!
I first stared off teaching younger ages from about 3-5 and progressively moved from young children to teenagers then on to teaching adults! there isn't an age range I prefer to teach, I am open to anybody!
One student I have taught before came up to me while I was working as a lifeguard and gave me a hug and said hello. Just the fact that she remembered who I was was adorable and memorable.
Ask about their certificates and training prior to the class you have scheduled with them.
if you're out of your comfort zone at all, let me know. I want to make sure you're comfortable and ready to learn. As an example I wouldn't want anyone to be afraid or nervous of something, if that's the case we can work around it for a while then come back to it later once they student has gained more experience swimming.
