Suzie is an amazing coach. If you are looking to improve your stroke, move from the pool to open water, compete in a triathlon or swim the English Channel - you won't find a better person to help you. Suzie is realistic. She doesn't make demands on a swimmer they aren't ready for - and pushes you that little extra just when you need it. I've watched her help a new swimmer get comfortable in the water and a few hours later coach an accomplished English Channel swimmer on nuances of feeds in the water, resetting a kick. She is great at swim technique and swim training plans! When it comes to training and the various needs from gear, travel, feeding/nutrition - no one knows this space better. Best of all?? She's nice and grounded! With everything Suzie has accomplished in swimming there could be a big ego... further from the truth. She is the most humble person and only talks about this if you really beg her to. Why? Her work speaks for itself, she doesn't need to brag. She's your coach and when you're in the water it's all about YOU and getting YOU to the best results. Incredible experience - cannot recommend highly enough.
Scott found a good swim spot for us to practice at. He also provided a bunch of resources — and was painstaking in working on my stroke. Highly recommended.
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.
Alyssa is a great swim teacher. In one summer, she transformed my four year old son from someone who was afraid to even enter the water to someone who loves cannon balling into the swimming pool. She focuses on safety skills and makes the class fun for the kids. Highly recommend!
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.
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.
We had Sam as an instructor for our two boys at summer 2015. Boys enjoyed lessons very much and we can see their progress right away. He helped them with their strokes and technique. He was very professional ,always on time, good communicator , never missed a lesson. I would strongly recommend him as a swimming instructor .
I teach all ages to swim and enjoy the water. I offer swimming or water exercise for fun, fitness and relaxation. Thank you for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you!
Awesome coach and person! My son loved the instructions and he lost the fear of water.!!! Highly Recommended.
Exceptional ! Personalised care , customized teaching , expert training.

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!

We offer infant through adult learn-to-swim programs. We have a warm indoor pool with experienced, caring instructors. We're open from Monday to Saturday in San Mateo. Our second site is opening in San Carlos on March 12. Our students and parents love the lessons.
I teach the basic four strokes. I also will help any fear or phobias of drowning get resolved with a for-sure-to-stay above-water tread and float. I will teach how to safely and properly dive, and if interested, how to compete in a professional swimming meet.
