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 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 started learning to swim when I was 4 years old at my local pool. It seems that I had a natural talent for swimming, so I progressed quickly and became a successful swimmer, receiving numerous awards.

After ending my competitive swimming career, I decided to do my BSc in Physical Education and Sports Science, specialising in swimming.  I have always had an interest in water-based sports. Even as a child, I would help my younger cousins learn how to swim.  Swimming is one of the most important life skills to learn at a young age, therefore I decided to become a swimming coach to facilitate my knowledge and teach people to gain water confidence.  I have had wonderful coaches who were caring, patient and supportive when I was young – I would love all my new swimmers to have the same positive experience and I will do my best to make that happen.

It is very rewarding to help people of all ages learn a love for swimming while teaching them the skills for swimming safely.  No two days are the same when you teach swimming lessons. Each child is different, and they have unique fears and motivations. When you teach them how to swim, you get to tailor your swimming lesson to meet their individual needs. You’ll come to find that some of your students are fearless and love to jump into deep water without thinking twice while others are more cautious. Some students are easily distracted and talkative while others are timid and uncertain. Few things are more rewarding than watching your students progress and feeling proud of their accomplishments.

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 first learnt how to swim after failing stage two of the learn to swim program in Year 5 of primary school. I was also called names because of my weight, which gave me the motivation to teach myself how to swim. Through that process, a genuine love of swimming began to take root and I enjoyed the feeling of freedom I experienced while being in the water. After doing my first Swimathon in memory of a friend who had passed away, I went on to develop my running and cycling, eventually finding home in the triathlon world.

A few years ago I became a lifeguard, and by spending every day poolside it became clear that it was only a matter of time until I decided to qualify as a swim teacher. As an athlete myself, I enjoy constantly learning about the technical elements of swimming and I strive to pass on those learnings through my work.

In one thirty-minute lesson you can noticeably increase the confidence and skills of a child while overcoming negative beliefs and fears. There’s never a dull day- working with children is unpredictably fun. It takes a deep discernment to be able to apply your knowledge as a swim teacher to the level a child is at, and make progress. My own knowledge of swimming increases every day as I update my own skill set and strive to invest in my continual professional and athletic development.

I think every child should learn to swim simply because we live on an island! Physical literacy is so important in a child’s psychological and physiological development and swimming is a safe and fun way to complement that growth. It not only teaches a life skill, but also allows a child to learn valuable transferable skills they can take with them across life. Things like overcoming fear go a long way in showing a child what they are truly capable of and unlocking their full potential.

I seek to bring out the sparkle in the eyes of my students when they learn something new. As such, I enjoy developing a child’s core aquatic skills and water confidence through fun and engaging challenges. I am also keep in touch with my inner child, which allows me to meet children at their level, making every session one in which progress is made while keeping learner safety paramount.

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.

When I was growing up, my father always took me to swimming and encouraged me to compete. I have been swimming for many years now and have enjoyed every moment of it.

Swimming has greatly helped me in all aspects of my life. I decided to become a swimming coach when I was 17 years old, hoping to share my wisdom that I have gathered over the years and to help out the next generation of children to learn to swim. Swimming is an essential life skill, because we as humans need to learn all modes of travel for survival which includes running, climbing, and swimming.

As a coach, I focus on my swimmer’s techniques from the very beginning because bad habits that beginners pick up are hard to unlearn and fix later.
