I had my first swim lesson with Veronique last Friday and she was lovely. She is very focused and professional, but she also brings a child-like sense of fun to the physical challenges of swimming. As people have mentioned, she does the first half of the lesson in the air and the second half in the water. It's interesting to translate the physics of open-air efforts into the water. I have my second lesson tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it.
First of all, the best thing about her lesson was showing me how much fun it is to swim in open water. Luckily I had Suzies private lesson to introduce me to swimming in AP. She taught me the basics, such as how to enter the water and be at ease in a cold water. Also, she gave me clear, practical advice for my goal of swimming from Alcatraz: starting from a boat entry, directions to AP, pacing, and coping with cramps, choppy water, etc. She always provides encouragement, as well as tells me how to improve. As a beginner, I learned many techniques in a short time, but more importantly she teaches how great open-water swimming is! Thank you, Suzie.
Scott found a good swim spot for us to practice at. He also provided a bunch of resources — and was painstaking in working on my stroke. Highly recommended.
I have been taking adult swim lessons for the past few months and have been very pleased with Maggie as my instructor. She customized the learning to focus on not only swimming efficiency, but also techniques that are critical for when I am in the ocean body boarding. Maggie very good at explaining the how and why and provides good practice tips. The prices are very fair and the ambiance makes you feel like you at ease. It never feels like you are rushed and they also allow practice when there are no lessons.
Anna was my son's swim coach in Menlo swim and sport. My son had taken swim lessons elsewhere in the past. We were not too happy with them. Our first coach in Menlo swim wasnt too impressive either. But, Lindsey, the manager there recommended Anna to us stating that Anna is a very patient and skilled coach. She was indeed right. My son learnt a lot from her in a very short period of time and he improved vastly. I'd highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to coach your child.
Alyssa is a great swim teacher. In one summer, she transformed my four year old son from someone who was afraid to even enter the water to someone who loves cannon balling into the swimming pool. She focuses on safety skills and makes the class fun for the kids. Highly recommend!
I highly recommend Ara as a swimming instructor. Especially if you have a scared or reluctant lil swimmer. She was patient and very experienced. She's the best book her right away.
Excellent swim instruction for my 5.5 year old. Very technique oriented yet in a fun and friendly way. She won't learn any bad habits and is learning the strokes in the proper manner. My daughter can not wait to go back for swim lessons every week!
Both my son and daughter attended The Joy of Swimming School for several summers. The instructors were very patient and fun. The kids looked forward to going to swim lessons. My son learned how to swim from one end of the pool to the other and dive. My daughter used to cling to my neck tightly, but now she loves to jump into the pool and swim. It's great to know that they both know water safety and know what to do if they fall in the water. They also have experience working with special needs kids.
Awesome coach and person! My son loved the instructions and he lost the fear of water.!!! Highly Recommended.

We offer infant through adult learn-to-swim programs. We have a warm indoor pool with experienced, caring instructors. We're open from Monday to Saturday in San Mateo. Our second site is opening in San Carlos on March 12. Our students and parents love the lessons.
Because my background has been in competitive aquatics, I have been able to create a lesson plan that is geared towards competitive development. My belief is that it is important to learn how to swim as you would compete with it for the best results. It is important to learn technically vs practically. The swim lessons that I offer are completely tailored to my clients and their goals. I have been teaching swim lessons privately and for other swim schools locally for over 5 years years while continuing to train as a collegiate athlete. As new techniques and cutting edge systems are brought up through my training, I integrate them into my swim process for the most current and advanced guidance for maximum results.
I will be teaching individuals of all ages the safety, skills and fun in swimming from coast to coast. I've been teaching for 4 years now and having competitively swimming for 13 years. I enjoy swimming, and one of my passions is helping others achieve their goals.
