Introduction: And I am fully vaccinated for COVID since first of April. That said... Your child only learns to swim once; make it a terrific, positive, and fun experience! Give your child(ren) a GREAT swim teacher! Honored swim teacher (father of four) gets kids comfortable and makes learning to swim lots of fun! (see flyer, photos, & website). Using your home, apartment, condo, or your residential community pool teaching young children (toddlers through to teens). Sad to say the city pools do not allow teachers, other than their own, to teach there - even during public open recreation swim times. :-( I am a national award-winning swimming teacher - the experienced guidance your child needs. (International Swimming Hall of Fame, National Swim School Association & United States Swim School Association Hall of Fame). It is soooo much fun! Students don't realize they are learning, they think they are playing with me in the pool. No problem that I haven't seen and solved. More years of experience than other instructors you might consider. Why go slower (time and money) or less enjoyably with other instructors? Time is short during the summer home pool swim season. Note: While I travel from St Pete as far north as East Lake-Ridgemoor, I do not go to other counties farther north, or Tampa or Bradenton-Sarasota...thus declining those listings.

Private Swim Lessons

Mr. Steve came to my condo pool to teach my grandson how to swim safely. His great sense of humor, use of perfect imagery and years of experience make him one of the best coaches I've known and I've known a few in my years! Rizzo came away knowing every skill needed for playing and swinning in water. Mr. Steve even went above and beyond to fix a car problem very early in the day in order to get to a lesson in time. He's really dedicated and is wonderful with kids! I only wish my grandson was here longer in order to take more lessons with him. I give him an 11 out of 10 or an A+++ rating.

Mr. Steve is a fantastic swim instructor! He has helped our 6 year old grandson become a confident swimmer with correct breathing and strokes in just a few lessons. He is always encouraging and positive in his instruction.

My kids have always been a little hesitant about putting their face in the water, but Coach Steve is so good with them, he had them doing it on the first lesson with no tears! He engaged them immediately and built trust with them. They loved the first lesson so much they asked if Coach Steve was coming back tomorrow! 😊

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is $30 per half hour lesson. Discount per lesson, when working with two or more students having back to back lessons on the same visit. Build a class or stay with one-to-one learning. No additional fees or contracts. No charge when bad weather forces cancellation of the lesson. Flexible scheduling for illness, vacations, etc..

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Listen to the parent's/grandparent's description of what the child does in the water now...and go from there. Pick them up right where they are. After first lesson I can advise on expectation of progress.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    B.S. in Education - Physical Education. Have taught elementary, middle school, and high school physical education which included swimming. Long time Red Cross Water Safety Instructor and also currently certified by Swimming Lessons University - both are Florida approved certifications for swim teachers. Current first aid and CPR certification. * Note - the state of Florida does not require home pool instructors to have certifications as those who work in public and semi-public pools. Look for that however.
