About this pro

Miss Laura offers CONCIERGE swim lessons- this means I come to you. You MUST have a pool for me to teach in, you cannot come to mine. Miss Laura has been a swim instructor for more than 20 years and specializes in helping swimmers overcome a fear of water. She is also a certified and experienced swim coach, dive instructor, and lifeguard instructor. Whatever your swimming goals, Miss Laura can help you achieve them! Miss Laura offers the following lessons (as established by the American Red Cross) Swim Lessons for 3 years-Adult Beginning and Intermediate Diving (pool must be at least 10 feet deep) Lifeguard Readiness Swimming for Fitness (Please note, children must be at least 3 years old on the first day of swim lessons. Parent/Child classes are available for ages 6 months-3 years of age, but a minimum class size of 5 children is required. Please form your own class.) I absolutely LOVE teaching swim lessons, and after more than 20 years, I have yet to "outgrow" my first summer job. I doubt I ever will. I update my certifications regularly. I was one of the first traveling swim instructors in DFW, offering private swim lessons in homes, HOA pools, and community pools. I learned a lot in those first few years, and with the invention of the internet and social media for connecting with my clients, my business has grown by leaps and bounds. I am at home in the water. In the "off-season" for swim lessons, I am a professional mermaid. Who better to teach swimming than one born doing it?!
