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.

Amy is great to work with and very accommodating. Her instructors are very patient while still keeping the kids on track with their lessons. We especially liked Daniel - he did a great job of teaching technique mixed with silly games. I have recommended this program to many of my friends.
Lisa taught swimming lessons to my kids for 4 sessions and she is just phenomenal. Not only did they learn valuable swimming skills, sh was so patient and caring in teaching them. I couldn't recommend her more strongly.
Quick, quality, efficient swim lessons. I'm a mom that's been swimming for 20 years and I sure wish I had lessons like this.
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.
Ami is a sweetheart. So gentle and great with the kids. All 3 of my kids have worked with her from age 1-7. My 4 year old was afraid to put his head in the water and a few months later was swimming across the pool using his strokes.
Kristine did a great job with our kids. She handled their reluctance and fear and made the lessons fun. The kids are now swimming without floatation devices and we feel much safer when they are around the pool. We have recommended her to several friends. Thank you so much Kristine!!!
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.
I have been teaching private swim lessons for 12 years and have a deep passion for teaching others how to swim. I am very patient with my clients, yet know how to challenge them effectively in the water to help them improve their swimming skills more efficiently. Many adults that I teach need that time to build new neural pathways in their nervous system to achieve coordination and muscle memory if they are starting off as a non- swimmer with great fear of the water, so they need more time to adapt. People with no fear but need to learn proper technique take less time to learn, and children soak up new information like a sponge so their adaptability comes much easier than adults.
Monica has taught multiple of my children how to swim. We keep going back to her year after year because she is so great with children and is an excellent swim instructor. She connects with the kids and they quickly trust her and love working with her. She's gentle but motivated, funny and patient, and truly cares about each of her students. We love her!!!
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 teach swimming and Zumba lessons in the privacy of their own homes. I'll support you on your weight loss goals. Each lesson is about an hour, but with warmups, warming down and stretching, it's more like 45 minutes of a good sweat.
I provide private and semi-private swimming lessons and water fitness sessions for all ages and fitness levels.
I am a Division 1 water polo player at Iona College. I am from RSM, CA. I have 5 years of water polo and swimming experience. I was an Orange County athlete of the week in September 17, 2013.
I am a very fun person to be around, and I'm looking to share my passion for swimming with you. I only charge $5 an hour.
I teach kids and adults how to swim. Any age can learn. I have had more than 6 years of experience in swimming. I teach all strokes and treading.
We provide all aquatic safety courses to the community like swim lessons, lifeguarding classes, and first aid classes. The majority of the staff have been successful in the profession for more than 10 years.
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.
