Eric helped me increase strength and muscle mass, which I never imagined was possible. He was able to work around my back issues and work schedule. Before meeting him, I suffered from various back aches and pain. Through his exercise program and workout schedule, the aches and pain significantly decreased. He was able to work around meeting between the gym and pool. I am most grateful for him teaching me how to swim and getting me over my water fear. never thought I would ever learn how to swim! Every session had its challenges, but they were always fun. Words can not express my graditude to Eric!
Terry made my adult swimming lessons worthwhile. We only had 4 hours, but she made me really comfortable in the water. She can accurately pin point the things that you need to improve on. I highly recommend her.
Monica is the best swimming coach I've ever seen.Before taking her lessons,my little guy had so great fear of water that he didn't want to take any swimming lessons.But,just after several times,I was shocked when I saw my son lying on the water very comfortably.for me ,It's really a magic.I'm so happy to see my boy starting to enjoy swimming and apreciate so much.

Love my swim instructor. After first lesson, really feel comfortable with her and look forward to learning how to swim. Appreciate the quick response from them.
He traveled to my apartment to train me and I'm now a regular client! He's extremely knowledgable and is extremely accommodating with his schedule.
My kids went from not knowing how to swim to swimming quickly and safely across the width of the pool after just 2 days! Peter's method is so different from standard swim lessons but so much more effective. I needed to know my kids would be safe around water as we have a pool in our backyard and after having my kids take lessons from him I had so much peace of mind. They knew just what to do if they ever fell in or found themselves in over their heads. He uses a "walking" technique with lots of repetition that proved to be very effective. I would definitely recommend Peter and his methods!
This is our third summer using Denise for swimming lessons for my daughter, almost 4, and my son, 13 months just started with her as well. She's done a great job personalizing her approach. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and has come a long way in the pool. I'm so grateful to have found her, and I've recommended her to friends who've also been pleased with her service.
My wife and I are very happy with the results of our daughter working with Kristine. We were referred to her by another parent at the preschool. Kristine has been working with our daughter twice a week for 3 weeks now and we already see improvements. Before, our daughter was terrified to go into the water without her floaties but now she feels confident enough to swim on her own without being afraid. We will continue for the rest of the summer. We highly recommend private swim lessons from Kristine.
My 2 daughters who are 4 and 5 years old have been taking private swimming lessons at a nearby school. We've been going to the school for 3 years , spent so much money, switched to many different instructors without any real progress! My children have no concept of float/treading water or any water safety knowledge with that school after 3 long hopeless years!! Finally my husband was fed up and told me to look into a different school/approach as this school is not for us! I went on thumbtack, found Ms. Cheryl and decided to call her. I explained to her our situation and she assured me that my kids will be swimming after 5 lessons with her! I was skeptical and shocked to hear that , but was also hopeful to hear that! After talking to many instructors, we decided to give Ms. Cheryl a try and scheduled my children for lessons on July 10th. Let's just say the 1st lesson was not easy... as Ms. Cheryl is a no non-sense kind of teacher and will made sure our kids are comfortable in the water, putting their face in the water and opening their eyes under water. There were cries and screams and "I don't like swimming", but toward the end of the lesson, they were definitely more comfortable on the water. Ms. Cheryl taught them day 1 what to do if they accidentally fell in the pool and made sure they know how to save themselves... which I think is so important!! Fast forward to Friday, which is lesson #5, my 2 daughters are now jumping in the pool on their own, swimming By themselves -turning on their back when they get tired and know how to keep themselves afloat! I can't thank Ms. Cheryl enough for giving them the confidence in the water! Not To mention I can't thank her enough for teaching them how to swim in such a short amount of time!!! If you have kids who are afraid of water like mine, do yourself a favor and call Ms.Cheryl as you will not regret it! She is tough, but will deliver results.
My 3 year old loves the water, but it takes him rather long to warm up to new people. My husband and I were both incredibly surprised when we saw how well he concentrates during his lessons. He made such good progress and, more importantly, he has a lot of fun. When we take him to the pool to play now he is actually disappointed when Miss Joanna isn't there to teach him... You can tell that she has a lot of experience and passion for the sports and knows how to inspire even the little ones. I highly recommend her.
Mr. Austin has been a very important milestone in my knowledge of the game. After only 3 lessons, I saw a 60% improvement in my abilities and an 80% improvement in my score. He has proven his years of expertise and the ability to impart that knowledge almost effortlessly. Very highly recommended.
I was able to take my swimming to a whole new level from lessons with Marc. Before I was muscling through the water and not manipulating my body to the best of my ability. With eight years of lessons I was able to achieve Olympic Trial cuts at a very young age, and later a scholarship to top Division I swim school. With out this private training, I would have been an average swimmer. With private training, I was able to take my swimming career to levels far beyond what I could have imagined. I recommend lessons with Marc because he offers top notch swimming knowledge and he utilizes many differentiated learning strategies to reach all types of learners. His background in teaching just proves his communication with his athletes is bar none.
Eugene is very nice and easy to work with, I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to swim no matter what your age or level is. Eugene has a great balance between strict and nurturing that children need. His approach really helped my son to build his confidence which I think is half the battle to get anyone swimming. I recommend him to anyone looking for swim lessons.
Michael has a very patient and effective teaching style. My son looks forward to each lesson and the sense of accomplishment he gains. My wife and I have been pleased and impressed by the consistent progress. Overall Michael is a very experienced coach whose professionalism is second to none. I recommend without any reservation.
Shawn is excellent swimming instructor. He has patience to teach swimming class. Now my wife becomes a better swimmer because of him. I will recommend to any one who want to learn swim effectively with short amount of time. I am also improved my swimming skill because of his excellent advice. Now I can swim faster with less energy effor! Thank you swimming coach shawn!
I was surprised swim lessons were such a pleasant experience since I had been afraid for so many years. Margarita was extremely patient and professional!
I have swam competitively, from grade school to high school, and I have also taught swimming since junior high to present. I know CPR and first-aid, and I am fluent in the American sign language. I teach from infants to adults and help and condition competitive swimmers, guide fitness-lap swimmers, teach fitness water aerobics, open-water swimmers, recreational swimmers, therapeutic swimmers, and help former swimmers.

I was a lifeguard, swim instructor, water polo coach and swim coach for the City of LA for 4 years. I love teaching people of all ages and skill levels how to swim and improve their abilities. I specialize in one on one lessons but group lessons can also be arranged with students of a similar skill level. I have a flexible schedule, but have no access to my own private pool. You will have to provide a location for the lesson and I will come to you.
I have a lot of patients with young children. I know that every child is different in the water. I try to teach them as many skills as possible.
