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.

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!

I started working with rebecca when I was about 8 weeks prego (for the first time). With her teaching in class I grew into my pregnancy literally! I also did swim classes while I was pregnant with her and it helped me tremendously with feeling lighter and being able to walk without so much pain. She also created a beautiful community I have and go to for any and everything! Rebecca is a goddess, it is because of her I had not only an amazing pregnacy but birth experience and even post pregnancy she has been an amazing hep. She knows what to do and she does it best, I love her so much and I almost don't want to even share her lol! No really, having this super women in my life I couldn't be more fortunate. I'm so lucky to have met her, worked with her, connect with her, grow with her, the list goes on but at the end I always love her!

My daughter 8 was not pool safe when we started having Regina teach her. By the second week she swim the length of the pool and back and is pool safe. She dives for items in the deep end, floats, learning different strokes, and definetly pool safe. my daughter thinks she is great and i am thrilled after other summers of swim lessons and her not even being pool safe. She is professional patient and great with kids.

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.

We love Ami so much. She took my terrified child and turned him into a terrific little swimmer. This was no small feet, since my son was terrified from a prior swim instructor, whose techniques made him so fearful of the water. I highly recommend Ami. She is a mom of a young boy and so she gets how important it is to connect and build trust in the water. Don't look any further if you are looking to make your children water safe while still respecting their boundaries. Thank you Ami!!!

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.

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.

Robin is kind, patient and very knowledgable. I taught swimming for over a decade & my little one just refused to learn from me (despite being totally ready). Within 6 lessons with Robin, she was swimming across the pool, floating & swimming on get back and knew to blow bubbles & return to the wall or steps if she was too tired. The transformation has been wonderful to whiteness. THANKS ROBIN!!!!

About

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.

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!!!

About

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.
