Kym is a pleasure to work with and so patient with my youngest, who would sometimes be afraid. She has provided great instruction to both my daughters over the past year and I have seen significant progress in their swimming ability since she started working with them. I would highly recommend her.Aug 7, 2019
Excellent instructor, always on time and very professional.Aug 6, 2019
Kym is very patient but firm. And she is always accommodating with our schedule. She also provides good feedback on ways to improve when practicing at home.Aug 7, 2019
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I price my lessons at a very reasonable $30 for 30 minutes. I accept Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, or cash. After the first lesson, you may chose to pay only for the next lesson at a time, or purchase a "package" of lessons. Packages afford you a discounted rate, plus a set time in my schedule "locked-in". You will receive a 5% discount for a package of 4 lessons, 10% discount for a package of 8 lessons, or a 15% discount for a package of 12 lessons. There are no additional fees. Please text 443-683- 9286 if you need to reschedule your class. Please try to give me as much notice as possible. If weather in your area looks bad, please feel free to call. I will reschedule if there is lightening in your area, however, since we are getting wet anyways, we will still proceed if there is rain (unless it is heavy). There are no refunds.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Via text or phone call (your choice), we will discuss you and your child's comfort level in the water as well as any skills or lessons your child may have already taken. We will also discuss the availability of both of our schedules to find a set day(s)/time that will be convenient for you. Once we are agreed on day/time for the first lesson, I will ask that you text me your address or the address of the pool we will meet at. At the completion of our first lesson, we will discuss how many days a week recommended, and how you would like to pay (i.e. which payment method and for individual lesson or purchase a "package").
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a swim instructor and coach for over 25 years. I have trained and coached thousands of children in that time. I am an American Red Cross Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor, as well as a USA Swimming Coach and official. I also have various certifications in infant swimming methods to assist me in preparing your child for an accidental fall in, as well as certifications for adult relaxation in the water to assist a "nervous in the water" adult. I am also a mother and a grandmother, which gives me a special insight on working with children. I believe in water safety for all children. Early childhood swimming is a very special event in a child's life. It should be safe, enjoyable, and build your child's water confidence.
