About this pro
Erin was a wonderful swim instructor! As an adult, I was nervous about learning how to swim, but Erin was supportive and attentive during our swim lessons. By the last lesson, I was jumping into the deep end of the pool. Erin taught me the fundamentals of swimming and I'm forever grateful. Her warm and encouraging personality made learning how to swim very fun. Thank you Erin!Jul 27, 2017

Thank you Remi! I miss you guys. I drive by "your" house to teach for another family and I always wish you were there to visit.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$100 an hour or $60 a half hour lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I get a feel for who they are. What negative and positive associations they carry with water and swimming. What they desire to accomplish. What holds them back. I get them in the water. I have them show me anything they want or ask them to show me things. I see them. I tell them what I can offer them and what they are capable of. We think about it a little. Then we make a short term or long term plan. Then- we get to work and the magic happens.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a learner and a teacher in many different schools of thought in the world of aquatics. I've been in structured programs and experienced free form teaching based on my intuition and in play. I have learned to blend the experiences I had with the structured form of teaching: American Red Cross, various private swim schools, local community pools and programs in northern California and Utah, and mostly just by pure experience and a lot of reflection, writing, and research to process my vision of how it all works. I am fully confident in my understanding of the things I've figured out and I'm fueled by a never ending curiosity to learn more and to perfect my art even more. I've read and listened to and watched a lot of experts in this field online and in person. I love to gain new insights and to see how the work they are doing might be able to benefit me by expanding my approach and understanding. I LOVE talking to people who really know what they are doing and are fully in their passion and are lit by the light of discovery.
