Introduction: Hi! TEACHING A LIFE SKILL! Certified WSI, (water safety instructor) Lifeguard with CPR/AED. I have been teaching lessons at pools and beach settings for several years. I have an exceptional teaching technique that I use for toddlers, children, and adults. Children and Adults come in class saying “I can’t do that” or I am not coordinated. I quickly change those phrases and build up their confidence with "I will be great at this!" I always aim for my students and adults leaving my lessons with nothing but the BEST experience. ***Please note as of January 3, 2023 only accepting Adults. Best, Dana💦

I am out of shape, 40+, and had no swimming experience. I also had a few failed attempts trying to work out private lessons with other instructors previously. I contacted Dana to learn swimming and she has been very responsive from the moment I contacted her. We agreed to learn at my apartment pool and Dana showed up a few minutes before time and we found out that the pool was closed due to some maintenance reasons on that day. Dana was patient and supported me by taking me to her Gym's pool and provided the lesson. She is a seasoned instructor who will make you comfortable in every way, I cannot believe at the end of second class I am swimming freestyle laps requiring some breathing practice. I feel my alignment is good and legs are not sagging and I just need to improve breathing through practice . I am also able to do some backstroke and confident that with time it will be muscle memory. I suck at the breaststroke, and me and Dana both feel we can let it go for the time being :-) . Dana is an experienced coach who is very professional, responsive, full of technique that can help any adult learner grasp like a young kid. She is also a very helpful and a patient person who provides high value for your time and money. I would highly recommend her for Adult Swimming Lessons. Thank You

Dana has been an absolute gem. She is easy and fun to work with. Very encouraging even when you feel you are not doing so well. In a short 3 lessons, I am able to do a lot more than expected. Learned a new type of stroke. I am confident that when my time with Dana is all said and done, I would have achieved all my goals especially that of overcoming my fear of deep water. Thank you Dana for your excellent work of helping us achieve our swimming goals. As a side joke, I would probably be moving like a "dolphin" in the water before you know it. Lol

Five stars across the board. So happy I found Swim Sisters and learned to improve my stroke. Looking forward to taking additional classes and improving even more.

While I’ve always loved being in a pool, at the beach, etc., I never learned how to swim. I even had a fear of putting my head under the water. Dana is a hands on instructor who is VERY knowledgeable, encouraging, attentive, and PATIENT!!! Which is what I was in search of! With every session, I’ve become more comfortable in the water. I’m already confident enough in what I’ve learned to practice different swim strokes and tread in the deep end of a pool solo!! I’m not ready for the Olympics just yet😬, but on my next vacation, I can fully enjoy the pool/beach with my family!!
