I learnt to swim at Hampton outdoor pool as a baby with my parents and then with my family moved to Jamaica where I swam competitively on the school swim team and for a club. I loved the excitement of competitions and improving my techniques. We then moved to South Africa where I swam for a local club and on return to the UK joined the Great Whites Swim club in Hampton. It was here, with a passion to pursue a career in swimming I completed my STA courses in 2008.

As a family we then moved to St Lucia where I again swam competitively with a club culminating in being picked for the national team, thanks to my great coaches. I also coached students at a prep school and the younger club swimmers for my team on a voluntary basis.

I take real pleasure in seeing how beginners start to feel confident in the water and help more competent swimmers improve their strokes and techniques. My aim is to instil a lifelong love of swimming for fun, competition and fitness as well as friendship whilst keeping them all safe. I recently lived in Malta where I worked as a lifeguard for the Malta Red Cross as well as club coaching, schools learn to swim programme and private lessons. My experience of working overseas has given me insight into a range of techniques used to teach swimming and I look to blend all my knowledge into lessons I provide.

My aim is to pass on my passion for swimming to all my students regardless of ability, age and make swimming fun, enjoyable and a skill for life.

I’m a sports fanatic, having played basketball for my country for 6 years, competed in athletics throughout my college years, and as I grew up on an island, swimming since the get-go. I have been a swimming coach and Personal Trainer since I graduated from my Sports Science degree (Bsc Hons) in 2013.

I’m an energetic swimming teacher, adept at customising swimming lessons for all ages, and passionate about getting students to appreciate all aspects of safe swimming and developing winning swimming teams. Most importantly I absolutely love working with children and watching them develop throughout the classes, whilst they have fun too!

As my mother was a PE teacher and competitive swimmer, it was inevitable that I would be introduced to swimming from a very young age. I learned through my local swimming club and from there I progressed to a county championship level, excelling, particularly in backstroke. When working as a lifeguard, I decided to expand my skills and progress into teaching. I have always loved being in and around water, so moving to a position where I could transfer my passion to others seemed like a no brainer!

I love being a swimming coach because of an opportunity to educate children in an essential life skill and reward of seeing them progress under my tuition. I believe learning to swim at a young age is as important as learning to read and write. 71% of the world’s surface is water and knowing how to interact within this environment is crucial for keeping yourself and others safe. In my opinion, some of the best sports in the world are conducted in and around water, and I would not want anybody to miss out on that!

My teaching style is personable and interactive. I believe in making lessons fun and teaching through positive reinforcement, with a demonstrative and repetitive approach. I like to get to know my students so that they can feel comfortable around me, which in turn extracts greater student input, for maximum results!

I have always loved the water and swimming. I have had Asthma since the age of 6 and would be off school for weeks at a time. When I reached secondary school, swimming helped me to build up my strength and stamina and become fit and well. I have refined my technique swimming with Teddington Masters swim squad. I have since taken part in several 5k Swimathon for charity and the Dart 10k river swim along with lake and sea swim events.

I decided to become a swimming coach in 2006 and after having my first child I left my Marketing work and dived into a swim coaching career. I wanted to share my passion for swimming and teach a key life skill that may one day save a life. My aim is always to teach children and young people in a way that will instil a love of swimming they are keen to return to throughout their lives. Swimming is an excellent sport that everyone can enjoy, I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to teach it. I believe children should learn to swim to increase confidence and develop coping skills for the future, keeping them well in mind and body. Swimming can be something a child can excel at away from academic studies and this can really help improve self-esteem and self-belief. My teaching style is compassionate and friendly, building confidence and empowering swimmers to challenge themselves to be the best they can and enjoy themselves!

I have always loved swimming. I used to swim every weekend with my family from a young age and joined a squad at the age of 12 years old, then went into lifeguarding at 16. I took my Level 2 ASA swimming certificate in 2012 and have never looked back. Seeing children and adults either conquer their fears, learn a new skill or simply improve their current skill is a brilliant feeling. They can go off and enjoy their holidays without any worries and show off what they have learnt.

I love being a swimming coach because I can pass on not only vital but fun and enjoyable skills that may save a life.  I love seeing children overcome something they never thought they could and then incorporate that into their daily lives. Learning to swim is not only a healthy activity which helps keep children active but also a great way to meet new people and enjoy life to the fullest. I wish to be able to give every child the important lifesaving skill to also enable them to join in any activity of their choosing.

I would describe my teaching style to be firm but fair.  I believe that a fun, approachable way is the most effective when it comes to teaching children to swim. It is important that whoever you teach can trust you no matter what, so being friendly, encouraging, set achievable goals but also have a good time with them will enable them to put their all into the tasks you set them.

I have always liked being in the water and swimming from a young age.  I decided to become a swimming coach when I provided support with lessons at my children’s swim school. I truly enjoyed the experience and booked myself onto a swimming teaching training course straight away.

I love being a swimming coach because I get a great satisfaction from helping people learn a life skill and seeing the look on a swimmer’s face when they finally achieve something they’ve been struggling with. Swimming is one of the most important life skills and I think everyone should have some level of proficiency in swimming.

My teaching style is fun and engaging. I’m a energetic teacher and I have found that children learn better when the lessons are fun.
