I started swimming from a very young age and I was obsessed by it. It wasn’t long before I was training 5/6 times a week and also swimming competitively for a professional club. I swam until I was 16 years old; I still try and get into the pool when I can to keep up my fitness and love of swimming.

I’ve worked in the leisure industry since the age of 16 in various different roles, but what I was most interested in was teaching swimming, particularly teaching children the various skills needed to be able to swim. I love teaching and the rewards it gives which is why I decided to teach swimming full time. I have a genuine love and passion for the sport and hope to pass on the essential life skills I learnt as a child to my swimmers. There is nothing better than watching a non-swimmer become a confident swimmer, relaxed and at ease in the water. I really enjoy making lessons fun, creating a happy and safe environment so that the children are always looking forward to their next lesson.

Sport has been an all-consuming part of my life. I attended a school specialising in sport and continued my studies at university where I gained a Master’s degree in Sports Education. From an early age I played ice-hockey competitively, and later on I competed at professional level.

During my time at university, I developed a passion for swimming, where I gained my first experience of teaching swimming lessons. After obtaining my ASA Level 2 Swimming Teacher qualification, I have been teaching in London since 2008, building a considerable wealth of knowledge and experience. I teach all age groups, from babies to adults. As each level requires a different set of skills, I carefully implement my experience and knowledge into the lesson, whether it is building water confidence in a toddler, improving swimming technique for a school swimmer, or preparing an adult for a triathlon.

Ability to inspire confidence and motivate swimmers are very important skills for swimming teachers. However, for me, most important of all is to create enjoyable, engaging swimming lessons, with happy smiling faces on every child, bringing out the best in each and every one.

I’ve spent most of my life in and around water and as a result, swimming has become a very important part of my life since childhood. In addition to swimming, I enjoy scuba diving and sailing, fully embracing the life aquatic!

I inherited my passion for swimming from my father who was a successful competitive swimmer. Following in his footsteps, I too was a competitive swimmer and also a life guard in my teens. Later, I completed my studies in the Academy of Physical Education obtaining a Master’s Degree together with full swimming coach qualifications. Since then I have pursued a career in the field of swimming teaching and coaching.

In every lesson, I strive to ensure that my pupils make fast progress, tailored to their ability and development, in friendly and relaxed surroundings.

My approach is not only to teach swimming, but also to promote lifelong participation in water-based activities for all ages and abilities, hopefully engendering a love of the water to match my own.

I started swimming when I was 5, attending swimming lessons at my local swimming pool. I have found swimming to be a valuable life skill, giving me the confidence to enjoy other water-based activities such as snorkelling, sailing and canoeing.

I have been a qualified swimming teacher since February 2016. I have always enjoyed teaching others; my first coaching role was as a Parkour free running instructor when I was a teenager. After this I became a lifeguard which gave me the opportunity to improve my swimming skills, and eventually I developed my knowledge further by training to become a swimming teacher.

Being able to swim is an essential life skill. Children are naturally great learners, and love having fun whilst developing their skills. Developing basic skills early on encourages them to participate in swimming, providing a source of enjoyment and exercise into adult life.

I find teaching very rewarding and particularly enjoy seeing my students grow in skill and confidence. Teaching kids is fun, exhilarating and having a good rapport with my students helps them to focus and fulfil their potential. No two students are the same! I love the challenge of adapting my lessons to meet the individual needs of my students. Maintaining a calm and focused approach to my teaching allows me to deliver fun and effective lesson to all my pupils.

I grew up in Botswana, where swimming was thankfully part of our daily life, living in such a hot climate. I have always loved swimming from a young age and it was a big part of my school life.

I became a swimming teacher in 2012. I decided to start my teaching journey whilst watching my children have their swimming lessons, realising that this was something that I really wanted to do. I enjoy working with children and have a passion for swimming so it seemed like the perfect career. In 2012 I completed my ASA Level 1 and 2 over the summer and began teaching that September. I have been teaching ever since and have adored every minute!

I believe that swimming is the number one sport that every child should learn as it is a lifesaving skill, fun and great exercise. My aim is always to deliver high quality swimming lessons, helping children reach their full potential in a safe environment. I have always believed myself to be reliable, conscientious, and very patient. When teaching I like to make lessons enjoyable, yet at the same time focus on teaching good technique from the outset.

Teaching swimming has been extremely rewarding for me. Watching the children become confident in the water, developing and progressing their skills and technique, is truly wonderful.

I have always been a sporty person. I’ve taken part in swimming, gymnastics, tennis, and football from an early age – I had swimming lessons near my home from the age of 4. When I moved to California to study my degree in Engineering, I was on the swimming team in college for 2 years. I trained for 2 hours every day and enjoyed competing in all events, but long distance was always my strength. Through swimming, I discovered, and still practice, other water sports like surfing, scuba diving, sailing and triathlon.

I decided to become a swimming coach because of my experience as a competition swimmer and my passion for sports. Swimming coaching also gives me the opportunity to interact with people; I derive great satisfaction from helping others overcome their fear and enjoy their time swimming. I particularly enjoy interacting with children because of their spontaneity.

Having qualifications as an engineer, together with gymnastics, tennis and yoga coaching, I can see the mechanical/physical part of swimming from many angles and can use the different teaching techniques from the sports I taught to enhance lessons.

I believe strongly that children should learn to swim as it is a complete sport for the whole body and mind. Swimming is a moving meditation because you are in silence moving your whole body in harmony with your breath. Also, I believe that it brings people closer to nature; I love the fact that I am helping more people connect and respect nature through the benefits of swimming.

I spent most of my childhood around swimming, watching my father coach professional swimmers. These experiences inspired me to take up swimming teaching myself whilst also studying nutrition at university. Since relocating to the UK from my native Iran, I have achieved a Masters in Sports Nutrition and have taught swimmers of all ages and abilities. I am a keen sportsman myself; I have played water polo with Ealing club and I compete in and coach amateur triathalons.

 

I am delighted to be working with Sports Generation and hope to inspire many children to love swimming the way that my father inspired me.

I started swimming at 5 years old when I joined a summer crash course in Spain. I have always loved outdoor activities and sports, so I continued swimming whilst practicing other activities such as football and dancing. Later I joined a swimming club at the University of Madrid whilst I was studying there.

 

For 8 years from the age of 17, I worked as a trainer for children in summer camps and after school clubs, teaching and coaching a variety of leisure and outdoor activities including swimming.

 

I then moved to England, and after an adaptation period including learning the language, I started working as a lifeguard, naturally progressing to teaching swimming. Now a fully qualified swimming coach, I am very happy to be able to work developing two of my biggest passions: swimming and teaching.

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.

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!

I’ve been involved in sports since the age of 6; as a naturally active person I’ve competed in semi- professional gymnastic and break-dance competitions across the UK. I’m a competitive person so I train extremely hard. Alongside gymnastics and break-dance, I’ve always had a deep love for swimming and football, and I participate weekly in both.

My passion for teaching started when I taught gymnastics at my club. It was such a rewarding experience that becoming a swimming instructor seemed like my next natural step.

My goal is to always engage my students and be creative in how I deliver my lessons; my strong belief is that having fun is the key to succeeding in any chosen activity. I’m delighted to be part of the Sports Generation team where I can continue to transfer my skills to future generations!
