welcome to our kingston pool

Our private pool in Kingston joined the SG portfolio in September 2017. Located in a riverside property, the 11.5m indoor pool with sliding doors bringing natural light to the pool area, provides the perfect environment for your child to learn how to swim. We also offer intensive swimming courses at this venue during school half term and holidays.

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.

Teaching swimming is my passion. It is the greatest reward, knowing that I am teaching an essential life skill to your children, a skill which will stay with them forever, and that because of my teaching, they will be more confident and safe in the water.

I started my career as a Physical Education teacher in Russia. After obtaining my ASA Level 2 Swimming Coaching qualification and Level 2 certificate in Triathlon Coaching in London, I gained substantial experience teaching swimming to children and adults of all ages. I also love competing and have completed two Ironman Championships in Austria (2014) and Germany (2015), as well as numerous Open Water Races and Triathlons. As a teacher and coach, my specialty is delivering engaging swim programmes that drive the progression of all the swimmers in my classes.

If you wish to give yourself or your child a high quality learn-to-swim programme, you will be in excellent hands. You, and your child, will learn the key skills for swimming the four strokes, as well as the core elements of body control and a feel for the water. Swimming is a life-saving and life-enriching skill, and as a teacher I am very proud to be helping both children and adults learn and master these important skills. If you are a triathlete, an open water swimmer, or simply love to swim, I can help you build great technique, along with confidence and conditioning. My coaching philosophy is “Coach as if every athlete will be with me forever!”

My passion for teaching children to love the water comes from loving water myself. I want to encourage as many children as possible to have a love for the water, to learn how to be safe and respect the water, and to become little fish!

I learnt to swim at the age of 6 and joined a swimming club when I was 9 years old. My competitive career started when I was attending a sports performance school until I was 16. I competed in many competitions across Russia and swam for the country.

After completing my ASA qualifications in 2007 at Crystal Palace I gained substantial experience working as a swimming teacher and coach, developing exercise programs for athletes to achieve skills and technique to help them perform to the best of their ability.

I strive to constantly update my knowledge with the most up-to-date and dynamic techniques. This gives my clients the best results across many different abilities. During my experience I have taught and coached swimmers who have progressed through to the top squads and gone on to compete at county and national level.

It all began when I was 5 and Otylia Jedrzejczak won her gold medal in the 200 meters Butterfly during the Olympic Games in Athens. Her race inspired me so much that I decided I wanted to swim and participate in competitions as well. Also, my parents wanted me to be able to swim to feel more confident in the water whilst on holiday. I was signed up for my first classes.The idea of being a swimming teacher was born when I knew I want to study in London. A friend of mine, who already is a swimming teacher in London, told me that teaching children how to swim is an amazing job for someone with a competitive swimming background as some of them might choose to be a competitive swimmer and gain as much from it as I did.

Swimming is one of the most fundamental things that people should be able to do. Many parents are not aware just how important swimming is for their children. For example, lack of swimming ability might, at worst, cost a life during holidays or at the very least, at lot of stress for the parents!

I pay attention to the details in swimming, as I am fully aware how important details are. Furthermore, I have practical knowledge about swimming which comes from my 13 years of experience and this knowledge will benefit my students’ technique and approach to swimming.

There are many things I love about being a swimming teacher. Watching children grow in confidence when they conquer new swimming skills and noticeably progress is incredibly rewarding, together with knowing that I am helping children to be fit and healthy adults in the future.

I have always had a desire for sports and I began to play football at the age of 4 and joined Queens Park Rangers (Q.P.R) Football Club for girls and later played with the Chelsea woman’s academy. I believe that there are so many positive aspects of sports engagement; it can boost self-esteem, teach teamwork, help achieve goals, provide children with additional social benefits and most of all – it’s fun!

I have worked in the leisure industry for 8 years and gained my ASA Levels 1 & 2 in 2014. Becoming a swimming coach is certainly a rewarding job, for the pupils, the parent and also myself as a coach. Learning how to swim is fundamental; it needs to be taught in a safe and fun environment to engage babies, toddlers, children, teenagers & adults, for them to acquire this critical life skill.

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 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.

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 am a fully qualified ASA level 2 swimming teacher with 5 years of experience, teaching and coaching a spectrum of swimming levels and abilities ranging from babies and toddlers to adults and competitive squad teams.

I have always had an incredible passion for aquatic sport and have developed a strong career within it, competing at county level in swimming and at national level for lifesaving and triathlon within the UK.

I am still competing at an age group level in swimming and triathlon; however, I have decided to focus my efforts on developing my coaching skills as well as my understanding of the human body, having just undertaken study for a Masters in Osteopathy.

My teaching style draws on my skills and experience; in addition to developing strong, competent and happy swimmers, I pay particular attention to the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of you or your child.

My first introduction to being immersed in water was when I was 3 years old and I was pushed into a pond at a family wedding by my older cousin! Over the years it has become apparent to me how the life-saving potential of learning to swim is a fundamental tool to our survival.

Throughout my early adult life whilst at school and university I was actively engaged in the leisure industry, first becoming a lifeguard and then later a fully qualified ASA Level 2 swimming coach. I find it very rewarding to see my students progress throughout the levels into competent swimmers who are confident and safe, whilst most importantly enjoying the sport.

What I particularly enjoy about swimming teaching is that every group and individual is different, making the process challenging but also rewarding at the same time. No day is boring when you are teaching! I firmly believe that lessons should be challenging so pupils can progress but they should include a fun element in terms of warm down activities and games.

I share Sports Generation’s beliefs and ideas and am excited to be teaching on behalf of such an awesome company!
