As I grew up in a city by the river, I spent most of my childhood with my siblings playing in the water and learning how to swim. Being the only girl in the family with 3 brothers, I was competitive, always pushing myself to do more and to be more active than my brothers! This has helped me in my life, enabling me to enthusiastically approach and embrace every new opportunity.

I am now a fully qualified Level 2 STA swimming teacher, and one such opportunity is joining Sports Generation. I am delighted to be part of Sports Generation’s professional and growing team which will broaden my experience of teaching even further; Sports Generation set individual goals for all their coaches to encourage continued progress and achievement.

I find it particularly rewarding to be able to help the little ones grow their knowledge of the water, and to witness the fun of their first steps in the water; watching them develop in each lesson and being instrumental in their progress is very satisfying.

Ever since I can remember I have loved the water. When I was a child I did not have swimming lessons; instead my parents would take me to the pool for fun. I had to learn ‘on the job’, watching other children and copying their every move. Needless to say, it took me a long time to learn to swim!  I didn’t give up and I started to train at my local pool to build up my strength and technique.

When I was 20 I worked for a residential centre, achieving my NVQ Level 2 in outdoor leadership. They offered me the opportunity to become a lifeguard and also a swimming teacher. This was the perfect chance to learn more about the sport and add to my knowledge of swimming. I received my STA Level 2 and my lifeguarding NVLQ. I went to France and worked for Eurocamp where I taught all ages and abilities. Whilst in France, I gained my STA Baby Preschool qualification.

2 years ago, I went to America for the summer and worked at Camp Vega, Maine where I was a lifeguard, achieving my Red Cross certificate.  When the weather was too hot, all the activities would stop and everyone on camp would come to the fresh water lake for a day of fun! This was the first time I had ever swam in a lake which was very exciting! As part of the swim team I had the chance to do a 5-mile Anchor swim to the nearest island and back again. It was very challenging and took me a long time, but I was there for the children, motivating them and keeping their spirits high the whole way.

I have now been a swimming teacher for 8 years and have loved every minute of it! Having fun in a swimming lesson is key as it brings out the best in swimmers and keeps them engaged. I have taught a wide range of ages, abilities, disabilities and special needs. Teaching swimming is such a rewarding job and I want to continue helping people grow and improve every day.

Swimming has always been a passion of mine. Luckily for me, my parents were keen for me to start swimming at a very young age which has been of massive benefit to me. I took to it straight away and wanted to progress further so I joined Woking Swim Club at the age of 10 years old.

I have been involved in some way or another in swimming ever since. I started in leisure as a lifeguard when I was 17 then progressed to swimming teaching a few years later as I wanted to interact more with the swimmers rather than watch from the sidelines and also experience the sense of achievement that the teachers did.

After having a few roles in leisure over the years I can honestly say that the most rewarding job I have had is teaching. I have taught both adults and children and there is nothing better than that feeling you experience when you see someone achieve something that you have helped them achieve, especially when you can see them enjoying themselves in the process.

I think that swimming is a vitally important life skill, a skill that is not only a great benefit for safety but is also a healthy and fun activity at any age.

I have been swimming since the age of 2, from Aqua Babies to swimming competitively for Merton. I started teaching and assisting classes for my swimming club in 2012. Swimming has consistently been a big part of my life and something I have relished professionally and personally. After training as a lifeguard, I would watch lessons and began to get a sense for teaching. Observing motivated me to teach my own classes and do a better job!

Graduating from a Performing Arts School in 2014 and working as an actress has enabled me to use skills of clear communication and character in my teaching. I have confidence in adapting classes, through working with a diverse range of abilities and age groups, including swimmers with disabilities and behavioural issues.

I draw from my experiences of au-pairing and travelling to improve my lessons. Teaching children to swim is exciting and invaluable. An openness to grow and improve is vital as a swimming teacher and my objective is to provide positive, interactive and safe lessons to anyone I teach.

I have always loved being in the water and have very fond memories of my first swimming lessons, but it wasn’t until I was an adult that I decided to take swimming seriously.

I started training for triathlons and realised I had a real passion for swimming, especially in the open water. With encouragement from my then-coach, I decided to take it a step further and qualify as a swimming teacher. I discovered that I really valued helping children and adults learn to swim and achieve their goals in the water.

I still open water swim and try to take on a new challenge every year. I swim outside through the winter at Tooting Bec and train for longer distance events in the summer.

My style is fun but firm, and I like to incorporate games into lessons. I enjoy teaching all levels and all ages, even helping water-phobic adults overcome their fears with my upbeat style of teaching.

The most rewarding thing about teaching swimming is seeing my learners gain confidence and grow to love the water as much as I do.

From a very early age I discovered a love for swimming and all sorts of water sports activities. Born in Transylvania, its rivers and lakes were often my playground on summer break.

I moved to Spain at the age of 18, where I found my passion for windsurfing and surfing. I undertook many different courses and programs to become a qualified instructor of windsurfing, surfing and paddle boarding.

I have also been lucky enough to travel; I have been to Norway, UK, Belgium and Canary Islands where I was able to live and experience the cultures and traditions these beautiful countries have to offer.

The arrival of my baby girl changed my perspective towards many things; it was only last year during my wife’s pregnancy that I realised I would like to work with children and teach them how to swim.

I strongly believe that swimming can be many things: a competitive sport, a worthwhile hobby, a means of self-discipline and part of a healthy lifestyle. Having gained my qualifications, I look forward to working with Sports Generation to help take your child on a journey of self-discovery.

I have always been very sporty and participated in lots of activities from a young age. These included gymnastics, cross country, shot put and karate. I competed in local triathlons and other local fitness events.

I have been working in the leisure industry for 17 years, gaining various qualifications including personal training, pool plant rooms and first aid. I have been a swim teacher for 12 years and teach all ages from non-swimmers to triathletes. I am very passionate about helping my pupils to become water confident and teaching them a life skill

I began swimming at my local leisure centre around the age of 2. After a few years, I joined my local swimming club, competing at district level and helping to coach young club swimmers later on. I was also the swim captain for my school.

I really enjoyed seeing people push themselves and develop, and that inspired me to become a fully qualified coach. I teach to help swimmers achieve their goals and increase their confidence, to see marked improvements in technique, stamina and speed and knowing you’re making a difference.

Swimming is a vital skill that not only teaches how to survive in water, but how to excel. It also helps to improve hand-eye coordination, train fine motor skills and increase general fitness whilst improving confidence in an unfamiliar environment. Besides, 71% of the planet’s surface is water, so it’s probably going to be useful! I try to incorporate a basic scientific understanding of swimming (forces in motion, hydrostatics, surface area and tension, water resistance and levers) from a young age as I believe this helps children to rapidly develop their confidence and skill.

I started swimming lessons when I was four years old as I used to suffer from asthma. Swimming soon became a significant part of my life and I swam competitively at regional and national levels in Japan.

Such is my love of swimming that I wanted to realise my childhood dream of becoming a swimming teacher and pass that passion on. 3 years ago I gave up the desk job and became a fully qualified swimming teacher, and I have not regretted my decision once. Swimming is a fundamentally important life skill and I strongly believe that parents should make sure that their children learn to swim as early as possible. It’s a platform for so many other activities too, together with general health and fitness. For me swimming is great for my body, mind and soul – and for my students too.

Motivation is the key to learning; my approach is to praise the efforts and achievements of my students whenever possible. It’s incredibly rewarding to watch my students become confident and competent swimmers, knowing that I have made a positive contribution to their life and well-being.
