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.Jun 20, 2018Swimming with Kristine's reply
Thank you, Joseph! I loved seeing your daughter let go of her fear and become confident in the water!
My kids love Miss Kristine! My daughter was comfortable in the water and seemed to think she knew what she was doing (she didn't, she just thought she was a mermaid) but after we met Miss Kristine and had lessons last summer I am more confident in her skills and feel so much safer knowing my daughter has learned so much. My daughter has water safety skills and technique now. Instead of holding her breath, she blows bubbles. Instead of kicking frantically, my daughter actually looks graceful in the water. Miss Kristine has been a huge blessing to our family. When we had a pool party, we hired Miss Kristine to lifeguard. I was surprised that lifeguarding private parties was an additional service she offered! And let me tell you, she and her lifeguard partner were very professional! Miss Kristine asked me details about the party and what ages of people would be in the pool and let me know her professional opinion on everything. Having her there with a second lifeguard gave me such a feeling of ease knowing that I would have someone there meticulously watching the kids in the pool making sure they were safe. She set the pool rules, encouraged games, gave swim tests, passed out candy for good behavior, set up stations. I was amazed! It was also great for my guests because they could relax and enjoy the party, and no one felt like they had to discipline other people's kids. Moms, you know what I'm talking about! I honestly don't think I could ever go back to having a pool party without hiring Miss Kristine to be there! I have recommended her to all my friends. Keep it up Miss Kristine! We love you! <3May 6, 2019Swimming with Kristine's reply
Thank you, Beth! It's always a joy lifeguarding and I'm so glad you're happy with your little one's results!
Private Swim Lessons
Kristine is great! Our little guy is having fun and really learning. Kristine is making the lessons personal for him, (taking stuff that he is fond of and relating it to swimming.) We just finished the 4th lesson and he is excited for more!Jun 18, 2019VerifiedSwimming with Kristine's reply
Hi Maureen! Thank you for your review! It has been such a joy watching your precious little guy get better and better every lesson!

Private Swim Lessons
Kristine did a great job with our kids. She handled their reluctance and fear and made the lessons fun. The kids are now swimming without floatation devices and we feel much safer when they are around the pool. We have recommended her to several friends. Thank you so much Kristine!!!Jul 2, 2017VerifiedSwimming with Kristine's reply
I'm so glad your children arr out of their floatation devices and you feel confident that they are safe in and around the pool. Thanks, Karen!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lessons are $45 for 30 minute sessions. Depending on number of sessions and how many students, price may be negotiated. I'm open to discussion! Private swim lessons are pricier than traditional group lessons. My prices include the benefit of me coming to you, working around your schedule to the best of my abilities, attention is 100% on one student at a time, and I genuinely care about your results!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I assess the student's level of familiarity and comfort with the water, then I assess the kick of the student, then I work on the stroke. Finally, kick perfection and stroke technique are worked on concurrently, and we progress to the five swimming strokes.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?American Red Cross Lifeguard/First Aid, B.A. in Communications and American Studies
