My wife and I are very happy with the results of our daughter working with Kristine. We were referred to her by another parent at the preschool. Kristine has been working with our daughter twice a week for 3 weeks now and we already see improvements. Before, our daughter was terrified to go into the water without her floaties but now she feels confident enough to swim on her own without being afraid. We will continue for the rest of the summer. We highly recommend private swim lessons from Kristine.
My son did not know how to swim a week ago. He'd been in traditional swim lessons three different times over the years with no results. He completed a 4 day program with Pete through CReWS swimming and is now not only swimming, but water safe! It was so amazing to see that quick transition this past week. This method just completely clicked for him and he was swimming on his own day two! I'm so proud of him and so happy he is able to enjoy the water now and I owe it all to Pete. He knows the exact psychology behind survival and how that translates into being able to save your own life and in turn, swimming. I highly recommend this to anyone with kids. I wish I wouldn't have wasted my money on programs that didn't work prior to this. This program and one week is all you need!
My 2 daughters who are 4 and 5 years old have been taking private swimming lessons at a nearby school. We've been going to the school for 3 years , spent so much money, switched to many different instructors without any real progress! My children have no concept of float/treading water or any water safety knowledge with that school after 3 long hopeless years!! Finally my husband was fed up and told me to look into a different school/approach as this school is not for us! I went on thumbtack, found Ms. Cheryl and decided to call her. I explained to her our situation and she assured me that my kids will be swimming after 5 lessons with her! I was skeptical and shocked to hear that , but was also hopeful to hear that! After talking to many instructors, we decided to give Ms. Cheryl a try and scheduled my children for lessons on July 10th. Let's just say the 1st lesson was not easy... as Ms. Cheryl is a no non-sense kind of teacher and will made sure our kids are comfortable in the water, putting their face in the water and opening their eyes under water. There were cries and screams and "I don't like swimming", but toward the end of the lesson, they were definitely more comfortable on the water. Ms. Cheryl taught them day 1 what to do if they accidentally fell in the pool and made sure they know how to save themselves... which I think is so important!! Fast forward to Friday, which is lesson #5, my 2 daughters are now jumping in the pool on their own, swimming By themselves -turning on their back when they get tired and know how to keep themselves afloat! I can't thank Ms. Cheryl enough for giving them the confidence in the water! Not To mention I can't thank her enough for teaching them how to swim in such a short amount of time!!! If you have kids who are afraid of water like mine, do yourself a favor and call Ms.Cheryl as you will not regret it! She is tough, but will deliver results.
Monica is the best swimming coach I've ever seen.Before taking her lessons,my little guy had so great fear of water that he didn't want to take any swimming lessons.But,just after several times,I was shocked when I saw my son lying on the water very comfortably.for me ,It's really a magic.I'm so happy to see my boy starting to enjoy swimming and apreciate so much.

I was surprised swim lessons were such a pleasant experience since I had been afraid for so many years. Margarita was extremely patient and professional!
Terry made my adult swimming lessons worthwhile. We only had 4 hours, but she made me really comfortable in the water. She can accurately pin point the things that you need to improve on. I highly recommend her.
Eric helped me increase strength and muscle mass, which I never imagined was possible. He was able to work around my back issues and work schedule. Before meeting him, I suffered from various back aches and pain. Through his exercise program and workout schedule, the aches and pain significantly decreased. He was able to work around meeting between the gym and pool. I am most grateful for him teaching me how to swim and getting me over my water fear. never thought I would ever learn how to swim! Every session had its challenges, but they were always fun. Words can not express my graditude to Eric!
Shawn is excellent swimming instructor. He has patience to teach swimming class. Now my wife becomes a better swimmer because of him. I will recommend to any one who want to learn swim effectively with short amount of time. I am also improved my swimming skill because of his excellent advice. Now I can swim faster with less energy effor! Thank you swimming coach shawn!
Michael has a very patient and effective teaching style. My son looks forward to each lesson and the sense of accomplishment he gains. My wife and I have been pleased and impressed by the consistent progress. Overall Michael is a very experienced coach whose professionalism is second to none. I recommend without any reservation.
I have a lot of patients with young children. I know that every child is different in the water. I try to teach them as many skills as possible.
I teach kids and adults how to swim. Any age can learn. I have had more than 6 years of experience in swimming. I teach all strokes and treading.
My work stands out because I am more than willing to teach anyone and go above and beyond, whether it's trying out new techniques or going more into depth about things. Not to mention, with still being a teenager, I can be very personable to many.
Our class sizes are small, we do either a 2:1 ratio, or private lessons. We are also very flexible with scheduling. You pick the days and times, and we'll do our best to make that happen.
She is helping me to learn and improve my techniques in a wonderful and friendly manner, she is so professional and friendly at the same time, I definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to get swimming lessons.
