Sarah was amazing with my grandchildren. They began crying and not wanting to go in the pool or put their faces in the water. They ended after 7 lessons swimming unaided with their faces in the water and basic strokes. She was patient but firm and really helped them to love swimming. She was a pleasure to work with!

Danila is an amazing teacher. I had the pleasure of working with her as a swim instructor and I was able to see first hand how well she connected with her students. She is patient, and knowledgeable in her field. It was a clear choice as to who I wanted to teach my son how to swim. I strongly recommend EZ swim to anyone, young or old who needs swimming lessons or even more technical training. Danila specializes in all ages and all swimming levels.

When my child started swimming lessons, the second time I went we had Stephania as the insturctor. From then on I knew she was a perfect match for my child. She is understanding and knows what my child needs. And from then on we have been using Stephiana.

I have exercised since childhood; ballet, yoga, weightlifting, swimming. Jenny is at the highest level of Trainers. What sets her apart from the rest is that she focuses on every part of the body. She is definitely an expert in regards to understanding how the body can be transformed with proper exercise. Her knowledge of nutrition and a strict healthy diet is what she represents. Jenny is the whole package - just look at her!

Nicolas has been great with my 4yo. In just three 45 minutes lessons I can see a great improvement. My son enjoys their time together and gets a kick out of the warm up exercises. I have recommended Nicolas to my friend and will continue to do so.

Anson showed up right on time and was very good with my two young grandchildren, ages 2 and 5. He made sure they were comfortable in the water, and taught them various techniques that would keep them safe, such as floating on their back, blowing bubbles underwater so they would not inhale water, and how to safely get out of the pool. He kept them focused with his instructions, but made it fun for them with songs and toys. Can't wait to have our next lessons with Anson!

    I teach Spanish, ESL and stretch for specific purposes plus strengthening, yoga and swimming lessons. I have over 25 years of experience. I am fit and energetic!

    My technique and program is quite different than most of the other swim programs. I do not require a five day commitment with a hefty price tag. I believe that it is better to have lessons 1-2 days a week and not push the children to keep coming back each day. They enjoy the learning process much more and are eager to return after a short break. It is a pay as you go program which let's the parents check out my style without paying for a complete program up front.


    Hi, my name is Sierra Park. I am 18 years old, and recently graduated from high school. I have been teaching swim lessons for two years. I am lifeguard and CPR certified. I have been a competitive swimmer for 13 years. I have done races in the pool with my high school/travel team, and in the annual ocean mile swim. I teach private swimming lessons for kids and adults who want to learn how to swim or build swim technique. Ages that I teach ranges from a year and half to 12.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    At what age should you start swim lessons?

    From 6 months to 96 years old, no one is too young or too old to benefit from swimming lessons. Once your baby is six months old, they are eligible to take “parent and me” swimming lessons from most swim schools. When babies are between six months and several years, you or another guardian must be with the baby throughout the entire lesson for safety reasons. Even if babies can’t walk, they quickly adapt to moving in water, so familiarizing them early means more fun for everyone and keeps them from being afraid of water later on. It also helps with water safety and drowning prevention. As for adults and seniors, it’s never too late to start swimming. Knowing how to swim can not only save your life, it provides an impact-free way to safely exercise and keep muscles and joints limber. Swimming can even help relieve pain from chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most swimming schools offer group or private instruction, so if you’re shy about learning a new skill, you can do so one-on-one.

    Why are swimming lessons important?

    Swimming lessons have major health and safety benefits, not to mention the fact that swimming is really fun. Here are some of the many reasons swimming lessons are important:

    • Life saving: Knowing how to swim can help you save your own life or the life of someone else. Prevent drowning by learning to swim.
    • Improved health in seniors: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that water-based exercise can decrease disability and maintain bone density in seniors.
    • Good mental health: Swimming can improve moods in both men and women, according to the CDC. Swimming can help with depression, can create bonds in families and can promote mental wellness in pregnant women.
    • Arthritis relief: Water-based exercise can ease joint and other physical pain in people suffering from arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
    • Whole-body workout: Swimming works all your muscles — without the impact of a sport like running.
    • Water safety: It’s important for swimmers of all ages to learn about water safety. Swim lessons provide the proper pool and water etiquette to help keep everyone safe and having fun.  

    How much are swimming lessons?

    Not only is swimming fun, but knowing how to swim can save your life by preventing drowning. The average national cost for swimming lessons ranges between $40 and $50. Swimming lessons can vary in price depending the type and length of lesson you select. Private swimming lessons, where you receive one-on-one coaching with a swim instructor, will cost more than group lessons. The longer the lesson, the more it will cost. Swimming lessons are available for people of all ages, so if you’re an adult just learning to swim there are beginners’ classes suitable for you. There are also advanced classes for adults who are training for races or want to hone their skills. Pricing can vary depending on where you live as well as the amenities offered by the pool. For example, a pool with private locker rooms and a hot tub may have higher rates than a basic swimming pool. Here are some examples of the average costs of adult swimming lessons:

    • Private lessons for adults:
      • 30-minute lesson: $35-$50.
      • 60-minute lesson: $55-$80.
    • Group lessons for adults:
      • Ongoing 60-minute lessons: $90-$110 per month.
      • 60-minute drop-in lesson: $25-$40 each.

    How do you prepare for infant swimming lessons?

    There are several steps you can take to prepare both yourself and your baby for the exciting adventure of infant swimming lessons. Start by introducing your baby to being in the water via the bathtub. There are no immunizations specific to swimming that your child needs before playing in a public pool, but do research to confirm the pool is well-maintained and has a clean bill of health. You’ll need the right swim gear; proper attire can include swim diapers and protective swim pants. Be prepared to check regularly and change soiled diapers as needed. The CDC warns against allowing your child in a public pool if they have any symptoms of diarrhea; swim diapers and swim pants can’t protect against transmission of germs in this case. For outdoor pools, apply water-resistant sunscreen to the delicate skin on your baby’s face and body approximately 30 minutes before pool time to prevent burns. For the health of your baby and other children, it’s important for your child to be in good health when attending swim lessons. If they have a cold or fever, it’s better to keep them home. Finally, be prepared to have fun.

    How early can babies start swimming?

    Most swimming instructors and swim schools offer infant swimming starting at six months. Although it is not formal swimming, the lessons familiarize your baby with moving in the water, and also teach you the basics of keeping your baby safe in the water. You or another guardian will stay with the baby in the water throughout the entire lesson.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend formal swim instruction until one year old, but taking your infant to regular swim class can be fun, safe and helpful for developing baby’s coordination and awareness of water. Experts urge parents not to become overconfident in their children’s water skills. Keep in mind that most children aren’t really able to swim on their own until they’re at least four years old. Even if they’ve had swim lessons, always watch younger children when they’re in the water and be ready to react in case of an emergency.
