I focus on safety amd comfort in the water before moving on to technical strokes. This allows swimmers to enjoy being in the water without the worry of aquatic accidents. The bonus is that confidant swimmers learn strokes, jumps and diving quickly and easily!
I enjoy seeing the delight on my student's faces as the find the joy of being free and safe in the water. And I really enjoy knowing that what I teach makes such a huge impact on people's lives. I love that parents can trust that their children are safe in and around water. And I love that my older students ...most of whom have had traumatic experiences in the water....learn to feel safe and confident.
Her commitment to the kids progress with swimming technique and learning to respect water.
Mary Anne has been teaching my son since he was 10 months old. He learned infant swimming survival within weeks. She is incredibly patient and my son truly enjoys his lesson with her each week.
Very patient and children friendly. Excellent teacher!
Mary Anne is a tremendously gifted instructor. She is able to modify her style to fit the needs of any child. From the most shy or scared kid to the most obstinant, Mary Anne is able to stay calm, focused and instill a love for swimming in all her students.
