Introduction
My rate is $150 per hour lesson. I teach/train: Infants, Children, Teens & Adults Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced USA Masters Military, SWAT, Coast Guard Triathletes Lifeguards Hello! I’m Coach Eugene and I am a professional swimmer and licensed paramedic. The water is my second home- I swim almost every day. My lessons are a fun and entertaining hands-on class which I've developed from swimming and teaching my entire life. Helping others is my lifelong passion. Whether it is in the back of an ambulance, in front of a camera, or in a pool. People matter and trade skills are steadily declining! It is a pleasure of mine to be able to teach any age how to swim. Infants to centennials. Swimming is a necessary skill that you will have for your entire life, no matter your physical wellbeing. The water can always be a comfort. I also provide training such as swim clinics, coaching for competitive swimmers, open water swimming, endurance swimming for triathlons, military (Navy/SEALs, Airforce, Coast Guard, etc.) and police or SWAT aquatic test training. "Coach Eugene, why are you more expensive than the other instructors?" Professional lessons versus amateur lessons speak for themselves. I have been teaching for two decades and I don't just teach swimming- I am an expert swimmer. I understand the psychology behind learning to swim, which only comes from experience. I'm also nationally certified and State licensed as a paramedic. Lesson price is based on the current SoCal rates for private professional swim lessons. My lessons have been rated #1 on Thumbtack for over 4 years in a row- take a look at some of my reviews. *I am fully vaccinated + boosted against COVID-19* ****Cancellation Policy**** If a lesson is cancelled 24 hours or less before appointment, or a pool is too cold for lessons, a $50 fee will be charged. Giving at least 24 hours notice ensures that someone else has the opportunity to fill your slot. Pools must be around 85ºF or students must have wetsuits.

As a first-time swimmer, I made amazing progress with Coach Eugene in just three lessons. Their clear instructions, patience, and tailored approach transformed my skills and confidence. Each session felt like a significant step forward, with my strokes becoming more efficient and my breathing more controlled. Coach Eugene’s positive reinforcement and encouragement boosted my confidence immensely, making me feel comfortable and competent in the water. I do not mess with water. Their dedication to my improvement was evident in every lesson. I highly recommend Coach Eugene for anyone looking to enhance their swimming skills, whether you’re a beginner or looking to refine your technique.

Eugene has been working with me and my husband on our open-water swimming as we train for our first triathlons. He has given us a ton of amazing feedback on our swim technique in a pool and has taken us out for open-water swims as well. He is really fun to work with and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone from beginner to experienced swimmer!

I cannot say enough about the impact that Eugene's lessons have had on my son. He was in the deep end by his 2nd lesson and learning proper techniques for safety and improvement. Eugene is a great role model. We are now getting ready for some beach lessons.
