Introduction: Fully vaccinated and boosted with Certificate of Insurance and American Red Cross WSI Hello, I'm Christina, I have been teaching swimming for 15 years, when I get in the water, I'm in my element. I enjoy engaging children in learning through play. I provide my students a safe environment, in which they are encouraged to challenge themselves exploring their abilities in the water. Constant positive reinforcement, and a guided discovery method of teaching allows me to empower swimmers. Fun and games foster a life long love of the water and help participants cognize swim skills. Actively proficient in all strokes, I have a knowledge of a variety of drills to strengthen technique and build endurance and confidence, of all ages and experience levels of swimmers that I coach. I get excited to learn and teach. I thrive off of the energy my students bring to class. Sparking curiosity in my swimmers, inviting them to become active participants in their learning, and helping students be intuitive in their bodies; makes for the most rewarding collaborations. The challenge of honing my craft to better serve each of my swimmers stimulates me mentally. Partaking in the satisfaction my students feel from discovering and celebrating their strengths and abilities in the water fuels our lessons and makes things fun! Joy is unavoidable when students swim with big smiles on their faces.

Christina is teaching my three kids how to swim and we love working with her! She is very sweet and makes the lessons fun with games and dolphins and animal noises. She also sings with my youngest daughter and has experience working with children scared of the water. We recommend her to a lot of friends looking for a swimming instructor!

Good teacher for all ages I am a senior & lifelong swimmer in need of a tuneup on some of my strokes and preparation for open water swims Christina gave swim lessons to children at our building’s pool. With rubber duck attached to her swimcap, she got the kids moving in the water and everyone was having a good time. I’d had other teachers, but wanted someone who would build on my strengths and respect my physical limits. Christina took videos of my phone. These showed me what we had to work on. Her instruction was clear and our lessons gave me much to work on during my daily practice. She taught me techniques for improving timing and broke down the components of each stroke. It was all great prep for the open water swims. Paula K., NYC

Both my son, 11, and daughter, 8, have been taking swimming lessons with Christina for over a year. We have experienced Christina as a wonderful and enthusiastic teacher who is passing on her extensive knowledge and skills to our kids. They have not only mastered technique but are becoming well-rounded athletes under the care of Christina. She makes each lesson super fun, being warm and caring while showing her very professionalism at the same time.
