Amazing!! Ariel is one of the best swim instructors I've seen by far! I hired her for swim lessons with my children and she is so good with teaching them (ages 5 and 12). Before lessons, my daughter would start crying to even get in the water, and now she swims like a fish! I would highly recommend Ariel for swimming lessons for all your children. She is very understanding and has a very competitive pricing. Her pricing beats every place and isn't very expensive for how skilled she is and how she goes above and beyond.

    Stephanie was great with Abby, our five-year-old daughter. Abby has struggled with swimming for a number of reasons. I decided that the classes through parks and rec weren't giving her enough one-on-one time and the swim schools are ridiculously expensive. I am happy that we found Stephanie and that she is able to come to our pool for private lessons. She kept Abby's interest, was patient and made the lesson fun. I can tell that Stephenie has a lot of experience and I am looking forward to continuing Abby's lessons with her.

    I came to Courtney after doing triathlons for a few years, but I never really felt comfortable in the water. After a few months of lessons I have noticed a HUGE improvement in my swim stroke! My times are getting faster and I feel a lot more confident in the water. Courtney is fun, easy going, and great at explaining things. I highly recommend taking swim lessons from her!!!

      Keri was such a great swim teacher, I highly recommend! She came to our home in Phoenix, was always on time, and was very skilled at getting our child to learn new skills in ways that were fun and engaging. It was clear she had a wealth of experience with swimmers of all ages and abilities.

      I offer swimming lessons for all ages. I have worked with swimmers as young as 6 months old all the way to adults who are wanting to learn or improve their technique to get into triathlons. I have worked with swimmers to overcome their fear of water, as well as with swimmers who want to take their swimming to the next level. Whatever you are looking for, I will be able to provide the proper service for you.


      Especially in Arizona, it is very important that kids learn how to swim. As a certified lifeguard and water safety instructor, I am available for private lessons for children learning how to swim.


      Do you want your child to know how to swim? We are here to help! Summer is here already, and knowing how to swim in Arizona is like having air conditioning; it is super essential! Alice and I offer private swim lessons at your convenience. Our goals are to teach swimming techniques in a fun and safe way so as to cultivate the skills for future swimming. We go through different levels with each swimmer so that they steadily increase their ability over time. Safety is our top priority, so we are both certified instructors with CPR, AED, and first aid training. Seeing our swimmers improve, from clinging onto the wall to swimming the full length of the pool is remarkable, and that is very rewarding for the both of us. We'd love to instruct your child soon!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      At what age should you start swim lessons?

      From 6 months to 96 years old, no one is too young or too old to benefit from swimming lessons. Once your baby is six months old, they are eligible to take “parent and me” swimming lessons from most swim schools. When babies are between six months and several years, you or another guardian must be with the baby throughout the entire lesson for safety reasons. Even if babies can’t walk, they quickly adapt to moving in water, so familiarizing them early means more fun for everyone and keeps them from being afraid of water later on. It also helps with water safety and drowning prevention. As for adults and seniors, it’s never too late to start swimming. Knowing how to swim can not only save your life, it provides an impact-free way to safely exercise and keep muscles and joints limber. Swimming can even help relieve pain from chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most swimming schools offer group or private instruction, so if you’re shy about learning a new skill, you can do so one-on-one.

      Why are swimming lessons important?

      Swimming lessons have major health and safety benefits, not to mention the fact that swimming is really fun. Here are some of the many reasons swimming lessons are important:

      • Life saving: Knowing how to swim can help you save your own life or the life of someone else. Prevent drowning by learning to swim.
      • Improved health in seniors: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that water-based exercise can decrease disability and maintain bone density in seniors.
      • Good mental health: Swimming can improve moods in both men and women, according to the CDC. Swimming can help with depression, can create bonds in families and can promote mental wellness in pregnant women.
      • Arthritis relief: Water-based exercise can ease joint and other physical pain in people suffering from arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
      • Whole-body workout: Swimming works all your muscles — without the impact of a sport like running.
      • Water safety: It’s important for swimmers of all ages to learn about water safety. Swim lessons provide the proper pool and water etiquette to help keep everyone safe and having fun.  

      How much are swimming lessons?

      Not only is swimming fun, but knowing how to swim can save your life by preventing drowning. The average national cost for swimming lessons ranges between $40 and $50. Swimming lessons can vary in price depending the type and length of lesson you select. Private swimming lessons, where you receive one-on-one coaching with a swim instructor, will cost more than group lessons. The longer the lesson, the more it will cost. Swimming lessons are available for people of all ages, so if you’re an adult just learning to swim there are beginners’ classes suitable for you. There are also advanced classes for adults who are training for races or want to hone their skills. Pricing can vary depending on where you live as well as the amenities offered by the pool. For example, a pool with private locker rooms and a hot tub may have higher rates than a basic swimming pool. Here are some examples of the average costs of adult swimming lessons:

      • Private lessons for adults:
        • 30-minute lesson: $35-$50.
        • 60-minute lesson: $55-$80.
      • Group lessons for adults:
        • Ongoing 60-minute lessons: $90-$110 per month.
        • 60-minute drop-in lesson: $25-$40 each.

      How early can babies start swimming?

      Most swimming instructors and swim schools offer infant swimming starting at six months. Although it is not formal swimming, the lessons familiarize your baby with moving in the water, and also teach you the basics of keeping your baby safe in the water. You or another guardian will stay with the baby in the water throughout the entire lesson.

      The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend formal swim instruction until one year old, but taking your infant to regular swim class can be fun, safe and helpful for developing baby’s coordination and awareness of water. Experts urge parents not to become overconfident in their children’s water skills. Keep in mind that most children aren’t really able to swim on their own until they’re at least four years old. Even if they’ve had swim lessons, always watch younger children when they’re in the water and be ready to react in case of an emergency.

      How do you prepare for infant swimming lessons?

      There are several steps you can take to prepare both yourself and your baby for the exciting adventure of infant swimming lessons. Start by introducing your baby to being in the water via the bathtub. There are no immunizations specific to swimming that your child needs before playing in a public pool, but do research to confirm the pool is well-maintained and has a clean bill of health. You’ll need the right swim gear; proper attire can include swim diapers and protective swim pants. Be prepared to check regularly and change soiled diapers as needed. The CDC warns against allowing your child in a public pool if they have any symptoms of diarrhea; swim diapers and swim pants can’t protect against transmission of germs in this case. For outdoor pools, apply water-resistant sunscreen to the delicate skin on your baby’s face and body approximately 30 minutes before pool time to prevent burns. For the health of your baby and other children, it’s important for your child to be in good health when attending swim lessons. If they have a cold or fever, it’s better to keep them home. Finally, be prepared to have fun.
