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.

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 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.

Swimming has been very close to my heart from the young age.  I started out with school swimming receiving all the distance badges and later joined a local swimming club to go on to compete at a country level.

At this swim club, I started doing a voluntary work to teach young swimmers. I really enjoyed watching my swimmers progress, so it seemed natural to become a swimming coach.

I have been teaching swimming to parents & babies, toddlers, children and adults of all levels for the last 20 years. I still love seeing my students build water confidence, learn water safety and improve their skills. I believe all children should learn to swim as it is an important life skill.

My teaching approach is friendly, fun but professional with integrity. I ensure that my lessons are creative and also inspiring, so that students enjoy the swimming whist learning at the same time

I got into swimming at an early age, doing weekly lessons at my local swimming pool and continued into my early teen years, joining the local swimming club.

My love for swimming resurfaced when I started my career in the leisure industry, after passing my lifeguard and fitness instructor qualifications in 2014. Watching coaches teach swimming lessons showed me how exciting and rewarding coaching can be. I jumped at the opportunity when the chance to obtain Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications came up.

Seeing children that you have been with for a long-time progress through the stages and being confident across all four strokes is truly rewarding.  Teaching brings me joy – if the swimmers you coach are having fun and enjoying themselves then that brushes off on you and you start to enjoy teaching a lot more.

I truly believe that all children should learn to swim as it’s a significant life skill. Having water-confidence from a young age will stay with them into adult life. I like to have as much fun in my class as possible, making sure that the children look forward to having their class each week. At the same time, they are there to learn so having the balance of fun and knowledge I find works best. Going into detail with each stroke and other activities and making sure they understand why they need to do it and how it will benefit them.

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.

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!
