Chicago Learn to Swim for All Ages This program is great for all swim stages. Whether you are just starting out or are training for a big event, Chicago Learn to Swim is the perfect private swim lessons for you. My name is Amanda Nolan. I have over a decade's experience in teaching swimming technique for all levels and ages. I started out as a USA swimming coach for Chicago Wolfpack at UIC and in Evergreen Park. For over 5 years, I was the Aquatics Director at Evergreen Park, where I was their water aerobic instructor and taught swimming for all ages (from 6 months to 90 and up). If you are looking to learn for safety scenarios or to perfect your stroke, you have come to the right place. I hope to see you in the water soon! Amanda
As a former competitive swimmer and diver, I have had the privilege of falling in love with helping others fall in love with the sport. With my two and a half years as a previous swim instructor and lifeguard at Lifetime Fitness and another two years of fully private instruction, I am able to cater lessons to the students' needs on a private or group scale, regardless of age, fear, or experience!

My son joined Priscilla after his junior year in high school. He had a rough year and wasn't sure if he wanted to continue with the sport. The team ended that year as one of the top 5 in the state. It was going to be a very competitive team the following year. We found Priscilla with the hope of regaining his confidence and improving his strokes and turns. She did way more than that for him. In a very short period of time, she identified the changes he needed to make to improve his swimming. He not only was able to improve his swimming in the stroke he initially wanted to work on but improved in other strokes as well. He made regional times in the 50, 100, 200 and 500 free, 200 back, 100 butterfly and 200 medley. Additionally, he had a state time for the mile. He had only worked with Priscilla about once a week for a few months. His most proud accomplishment was swimming under 1:50 in the 200 free at sectionals during his senior year. His confidence increased as he learned what he needed to do to "fine tune" his strokes. Priscilla provides a positive atmosphere and flexible scheduling. She demands a lot from her swimmers but coaches in a non-threatening manner. My son found her very easy to talk with, looked forward to working with her but knew he would have to work very hard every time he was with her. She provided a very positive experience and my son will be going back to her during college breaks. He ended up swimming in college which I don't think he would have thought was possible until he worked with Priscilla.

My daughter was an average swimmer and wanted to make the New Trier Swim Club. I knew she needed swim lessons in order to have a chance at making the Team. One of my friends recommended Bill. Through his excellent coaching and instructional style, my daughter's swimming improved ten fold and she made the Team. I would highly recommend Bill for new swimmers as well as experienced swimmers who want to improve their time or stroke.
Mike is the swimming coach for our three sons. He is a fantastic coach, mentor and all-around terrific person. He excels at all aspects of coaching -- technical, motivation and identifying the appropriate approach to take for all age groups. He is a warm, funny, wise and thoughtful person. He is awesome with both kids and parents. We give him the highest possible recommendation!
From math and ESL tutoring to swimming and cello instructions, I have been helping children to learn and improve their abilities for years. I understand that each child has unique needs that demand a personalized approach to make them excel, and it is my honor to help tomorrow's leaders develop their full potential. I can guarantee complete professionalism, a focused and effective approach to tutoring, and a close working relationship with parents, coaches, and teachers.
I break down everything I teach to the smallest scale to make sure each and every student understand everything I say and teach. I adjust my speed and technique to each individual students needs. In addition, I am willing to spend time to really perfect something a student is working on or rotate to something new if a student is stuck or frustrated. Practice is important so just because something is learned does not mean I do not review at the beginning of each class to guarantee prolonged learning. Teaching swimming is not just something I do, it's a passion so not only do I enjoy every second of it but I also make sure to constantly improve and grow in my technique and teaching ability to guarantee student success.
