Introduction: Why take your child to a large swim class to be taught by an instructor that just learned or has minimal experience. Why pay so much for group lessons where your child will progress slowly?? Then you have to pay for more group lessons with inexperienced instructors. Don't do it!! Children progress more with private instruction from an experienced teacher. Instruction in your own pool on your schedule. Former elite swimmer, swim and water polo coach. 10+ years experience teaching, toddlers to adults. Low fair rates. Make swimming fun and safe. Contact me

Allan did a great job with my 2.5 years old. He was afraid of putting his head in the water. We took an Intensive 7 days lesson and my son is now diving head first in the water. We are sooo happy with the result and fully recommend Allan.

I think Allan is a great instructor. I am an older adult who is just learning how to swim and have a lot of tension and fear. Allan recognizes that, works to calm me and I have gotten to the point where I trust him to catch and calm me if I freak out. He doesn't push me but encourages me to come out of my comfort zone. He also instructs my 8 year old granddaughter after our lesson. I sit and observe him working with her and he is very patient and responsive to her. He makes it fun for her and she seems very comfortable with him. Although I have taken swimming lessons before and did not stick with it, I feel I will definitely learn how to swim on my own after working with Allan. I am confident my granddaughter will know how to swim after working with him also.

Details: Adult (18 or older) • Beginner • Comfortable in water • Learn basic strokes • Become more comfortable in water • Yes, a pool at my home • 30 minutes • My home, venue, etc.

Allan has been working with my son and niece for a few weeks and we’ve observed tremendous improvement in their abilities. Both of them had previous lessons but the individual and extended private lessons have really helped. Allan is great with the kids - while they have fun with him, he is teaching them lifesaving skills. He is very professional and clearly knows how to teach kids. Highly recommend!

Allan is very professional and responsive, he is flexible to work around your schedule. He is excellent with kids, and keeps the kids engaged in the pool with changing drills and works with their strengths to make them learn faster. My kid (6y) enjoys his swim lessons with Allan, and looks forward to them. He has progressed really fast with Allan's instructions. I recommend Allan for swim lessons for all ages.
