About this pro

Please find me at https://nextdoor.com/profile/

2019 students will have first choice of schedule. The scheduling process will start in early May 2020 for lessons in my outdoor, inground, heated pool.

I teach water adjustment, basic skills and advanced swimming techniques, water safety, swim team prep and aqua aerobics.

I was a highly successful aquatics director for 16 years at a Blue Ribbon private school in Montclair New Jersey. I have extensive experience teaching ages 6 month olds to 3 year olds with parent participation as well as private and group lessons for 3 year olds to seniors. I have an innate ability to make the most fearful students feel safe and comfortable in the water. I've been scuba diving for 30 years and love to share my passion for the ocean and swimming with others. 

Teaching someone to swim and enabling people to safely enjoy all forms of aquatic activities is a very rewarding experience. 

Please note: I enjoy working with students of all ages however, students must be at least 3 years of age for independent lessons. Otherwise, a parent must be present, in the water, participating with the lesson.
