How did you get started teaching?

Our school was founded by a former national swimmer for England in 1981. That's where the name comes from. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All Ages. Toddlers, Babies, Kids, Adults and Special Needs.

From Mommy&Me to Senior Citizens (our oldest student is 75!) 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
5 Things to look for in high-quality swim lessons 
  • Classes should never be larger than 4 students to 1 instructor
  • Don’t pay for lessons that rely heavily on playtime or swimming with flotation devices.
  • Make sure all classes have set goals, and that these goals are transparent to you
  • Make sure your kids can progress individually at their own pace and are not held back by a group setting. 
  • Make sure the school teaches real survival skills: Kids need to learn how to react in case of an accident, when they have no flotation devices or googles at hand

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