Introduction: Swimming has always been a part of me. I have been swimming since at young age and I swam competitively throughout high school and played water polo. After I graduated from high school in 2017, I began doing private swim lessons for all ages. My lessons are personalized to the individual for best result meaning it’s adaptive to each individual because everyone learns differently. With that being mentioned, I do 1:1 private lessons so I can give my undivided attention. *prices vary depending on location*

We are very happy to have Carlos as the swim coach for my daughter and her friend. He was really good at working with kids. Both of the girls were able to put their heads in water and float on water in the first class, which we tried by ourselves for years but no success. They also learned doggy peddle very quickly in the next few classes and were starting the freestyle stroke now. Swimming is their favorite sports right now inspired by Carlos!

Details: Youth (6 - 12 years old) • No experience • Not comfortable in water • Learn basic strokes • Yes, a pool that allows private lessons • 60 minutes • My home, venue, etc.

Carlos has been the finest swim instructor I've come across!! He's been giving swim lessons to my 5 year old son all summers and I was amazed to see my son swim on his own on 6th day !! Prior to this I've enrolled him in all Kinds of group swim lessons but all of them have been a waste of time and effort. Carlos is extremely patient with my son. Very sweet to talk to and an excellent instructor, the way he made my son comfortable in water was commendable. Every weekend my son looks forward to his lessons with carlos. Extremely happy and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a swim instructor for them or their kids !!

We had a great experience with Carlos teaching swimming 1:1 to my 8 year old daughter this summer. My daughter went from ‘barely being comfortable in water’ to swimming back and forth to the deep end without any assistance in 3-4 weeks of 4, 30 minute sessions a week. We started with every alternate day, but adjusted to do daily to keep up the momentum. My daughter is very shy and liked the teaching style of Carlos and got quite chatty and friendly in no time, which was a surprise to me. We cannot wait to continue next summer again and highly recommend Carlos.

Carlos has taught my kids (now ages 10 and 6) swimming the past 3 summers. He was great with them; he was patient and he showed them correct swim techniques. He knows all the swim style and and the diving technique. I would recommend Carlos as your family swim instructor.
