I haven't been swimming in years but have just started training for a triathlon. Veronique's clear instruction, tailored to my needs, helped me enormously with the fundamentals of swimming - important concepts I was never taught as a child on swim team! Her expertise will be invaluable as I learn to navigate the water with strength and efficiency.
Scott has been training me at the YMCA for my first triathlon. Since it is my first one and I don't know anything, he has been super helpful. He is very knowledgable about body mechanics and form on the bike, running, swimming and strength training, which is helpful in improving your performance and in preventing injuries. Scott is also has a deep understanding of nutrition and how that helps your training. He is also very friendly and helpful with any questions.
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.
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.
I highly recommend Ara as a swimming instructor. Especially if you have a scared or reluctant lil swimmer. She was patient and very experienced. She's the best book her right away.
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.
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!
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.
Awesome coach and person! My son loved the instructions and he lost the fear of water.!!! Highly Recommended.

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.
I am currently going to school to become an elementary school teacher.I have more than 6 years of experience with 6 month old children and up. I would welcome the opportunity to further discuss my skills, feel free to contact me with any questions.
