Miss Laura helped our 5 year old develop more efficient, less tiring movement through the water in one week worth of lessons. It has been impressive seeing how much faster, smoother, and more confident our daughter is in the water.Aug 30, 2018Verified

Very cordial and personable but lessons never occurred. First week pool was unavailable. Second week pool was unavailable for two days and lessons were canceled . Rest of the week just didn't happenJul 8, 2015Verified
Last year was our first year with Miss Laura. My kids' skills improved exponentially after 5 lessons with her my son went from not swimming unassisted at all to jumping off the diving board and swimming across the pool. Excited for another round of lessons this year!Jun 5, 2016
Miss Laura went the extra mile (literally) she came to us on the lake where we live and applied our lifestyle to her lessons. She also taught our 10 year old and her friends how to swim safely, first aid, beginner cpr, how to call for an ambulance and how to save someone with a floatation device. This was something that was priceless to learn. Every year the kids still take it upon themselves to practice this technic. She is professional, fun, and reasonably priced and she's also a REAL mermaid! There aren't enough words to explain or describe our experience. Thank you Miss Laura!May 9, 2016
