Ari is our favorite swim teacher, and between two kids, we've had many. Really, he was more than a swim teacher; he was a coach, friend, mentor and supreme role model. Ari guided my daughter's transition to competitive swimming, and was helpful with both technical skills and mental tips. My daughter always looked forward to swim lessons with Ari. While he always kept things fun by switching up drills and playing games, he also knew when and how to push my daughter to reach her potential. To us, Ari is the gold standard in swim teachers!Sep 28, 2019
Ari is truly the most amazing swim instructor. My daughter adored him literally from the second she met him in the pool (which is not typical of her). He engages children in such a fun and unique way while also teaching them real skills. Within 2 lessons with Ari my daughter’s swimming improved so drastically I could hardly believe it. After a month, She was practically swimming on her own. Then Ari moved to LA and we are so sad about it. But lucky for you if you live in LA. Do yourself and your children a favor and hire him ASAP!Aug 1, 2019
Ari is an excellent teacher. Our son responded to Ari’s instructions very well and grew both as a swimmer and a student. Ari has a gentle but deliberate approach and is able to accomplish his lesson plan while still keeping our son’s attention, interest and playfulness (not an easy mix since mostly our son just wants to play!) :-)Jul 31, 2019
Ari is the absolute best!!! My kids absolutely loved him and looked forward to every lesson. He made it fun and kept it interesting and challenged them to get better with every lesson. And they both made AMAZING progress in their swimming while working with Ari. Can’t say enough great things about our experience. Swim safari is out of this world!!Jul 31, 2019
I can't recommend Ari enough. He has an amazing way with kids and was able to make a major breakthrough with my daughter and made her into a talented lover of swimming. My daughter developed a wonderful relationship with him. He's the best.Aug 1, 2019
