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 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.

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 spent much of my childhood in water, be it swimming or synchronised swimming. I have swum and scuba-dived recreationally throughout my adult life, and passed the same love of water to my own family.

As a swimmer, parent and now as a qualified teacher, I believe passionately in the mental and physical wellbeing the sport provides. Inspiring and motivating the children is an essential part of my role. The confidence children gain through trying fun and challenging water activities often provides them with a strong sense of achievement, and it is incredibly rewarding for me to be involved in their success.

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 have been swimming since I was five years old. I remember being scared of water right at the start, but my teacher was very patient, helping me step-by-step through my swimming journey. Thanks to these amazing swimming coaches, I quickly become a confident swimmer and went on to be a competitive swimmer in Brazil.   

I have travelled across different cities and countries, participating in swimming events and competitions. It was from this experience that I knew that I want to make a difference in other people’s lives, from young to old. I have a huge passion for swimming and teaching, and I dedicate my time and experience to help to teach people who want to learn to swim.    

My professional yet fun swimming classes will make swimmers feel that being in the water is one of the most important exercises for your mind, body, soul, and health in comparison to any other activities.  So, by joining my lessons, we will conquer the water together.

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
