    Matt is a natural with a wide age range of kids both in and out of the water. My 4 year old learned how to swim under Matt’s care and attention and he got my 2 year old son very comfortable in the water as well! I highly recommend Matt for swimming instruction but be forewarned- your kiddos may not want to leave the pool!! Matt has a calm and relaxed demeanor which kids gravitate towards. Don’t hesitate to book Matt for swimming instructions!

    Matt is helping me and my husband learn swimming. He is an excellent trainer, very punctual and always flexible with our schedule. We both feel we have progressed well ever since we started taking lessons from Matt. He keeps us motivated and interested in learning new things. We highly recommend Matt!

    The Instructor Matt, his patience, knowledge of swimming and his obvious connection and love of kids. He is encouraging and deeply connected to his students in the water. My son was just learning swimming in the deep-end with Matt and really loved moving forward.
