Scott is a great swim instructor. I could barely swim before and in just a couple of weeks, I'm swimming laps. I still have a ways to go to be 100% comfortable in water but I'm getting better after every session. Scott also provides great recaps of our drills and what I can improve on after every session. He also reviews videos of me swimming and is able to provide actionable suggestions on how to improve in between sessions. I highly recommend Scott for adults learning to swim proficiently and also for people looking to swim recreationally at a high level because I'm swimming 10x better than when we started a few weeks ago.

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.

I hired Alyssa for 5 lessons for my daughter (G). (G) always seemed to be struggling in group classes. Alyssa quickly identified (G) had been given poor instruction and worked with her to correct her technique. I loved how Alyssa walked beside (G) on each lap - she was never more than 5 feet away, so was able to accurately communicate what was needed next for continual improvement.

Jay is not only a great martial arts instructor but more importantly to me - he helps kids understand important life lessons. He talks to his kids a lot about being responsible and holds them accountable. He is a rare find.

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.

    About

    Hello! My name is Jen, and I'm a 26-year-old assistant aquatic director at U.C. Berkeley who would love nothing more than to teach you or your child to swim. Swimming and swimming instruction are my passions that I enjoy sharing with others. I have 10 years of experience working with children and adults of all ages, including children with fear of water, special needs, and other specific circumstances. I have experience coaching swimming at the masters level and waterpolo. I am lifeguard and lifeguard instructor certified, emergency medical responder certified as well as CPR certified for the professional rescuer (adult and pediatric). I live in the Oakland area, but would be willing to travel in the evenings to either teach at your home or local community pool. Swim lessons can be expensive and often impersonal. As someone who has worked in aquatic programs for a long time, my wish is that your child will get a quality experience at a cost less than what you would pay at a swim school. My rates are as follows: * A single private lesson (30 minutes) -- $40 * A package of five private lessons -- $175 * A package of 10 private lessons -- $300 Before any lessons are taught, a swim lesson agreement will be signed as well as payment in full. Because I work full-time, I will only be taking on one to two clients depending on location and the amount of lessons that are paid for. I have references available upon request, who would be more than willing to speak on my behalf. Have a great day!

    About

    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.
