I grew up in Florida where you were never not in a pool or shy of using double negatives.

Anyways, I have lots of experience working with children through nannying and coaching. I recently trained for a film where I had to perfect the butterfly technique and had the pleasure of training with an Olympic swimmer and the swim coach at UCLA(just once but still cool).

*Under 3 are Mommy and Me guided lessons where we address pool safety, play fun games to get your child comfortable in the water, and practice floating & kicking.

For adults swimming is a wonderful alternative to the more taxing weight bearing exercises typically engaged in. Great for people with injuries or physical limitations.

Great for exercise during pregnancy.

I have been teaching for 12 years. I have a specific teaching curriculum with an emphasis on proper breathing and techniques to ensure swimming improvement within 3 months of lessons! I believe swimming and diving should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I teach all skills of water. I want my students to reach their full swimming potential while having a wonderful time!

She is a well versed artist with many different skills, though where she shines is in drawing which has helped me in my understanding in the concepts of light and shadow, gesture and figure drawing, as well as how different strokes and the effects they carry, whether using graphite, charcoal, pastels, and other mediums. It all came to use in my college application process for developing my portfolio as I was accepted into a variety of colleges and universities across the country

Ms Goldenbaum has been by far the best artistic navigator. Not only has she taught me how to stroke a brush, she taught me how to really tap in with my mind and become one with the art itself. If it wasn’t for Ms Goldenbaum, I wouldn’t know as much as I do now about things like abstract art , water colors and primary colors. Shouts to Ms G!

I previously taught swimming lessons to children ages 2-7 with little to no water experience. I specialized in being able to work with children with special needs. I helped little ones with water anxiety or sensory needs adjust to being in the pool and enjoying swimming. I was a lifeguard for close to 5 years working at summer camps and with the YMCA. I really enjoy the process of teaching children with special needs- there is nothing more rewarding than watching a little one go from being afraid to really enjoying the water! I recommend lessons lasting 30 minutes. This is the most age-appropriate length.

Swim lessons with me are Professional, safe, effective!

I have been a Marine Corps water survival Instructor and American red Cross lifeguard for 3 years. In that time I have trained dozens of Marines and Marine Corps recruits how to swim. If you take swim lessons with me you will get effective, custom made swim lessons conducted safely. I am also a full time Active duty Marine so while I can only teach during certain hours, I am flexible and am always willing to do what needs to be done to make our lessons happen.

Matthew has the insightful knowledge necessary to help my son. I did not expect it to go as well as it did. I look forward to the next lesson.
