I couldn't have asked for a nicer teacher. The first 15 minutes Shannon helped me get my Skype working right when I thought it was. I liked the patience she had trying to figure out my problem with Skype so I'm sure she will be the same after hearing more of the off tune sax I have :). Thanks Shannon!

Peter C.

Long Beach, CA

I swam and participated in water polo teams/clubs from my freshman year in high school through my senior year in college. I can help you work on your technique and endurance. I was a backstroker and free styler, but I have lots of experience in all styles. I can work with you as a beginner or if you want to improve your technique.

My son is a beginner at swimming so I wanted someone who would come to our house to teach him since he is familiar with our pool. I priced out some other programs and found that this was less expensive for a one on one instructor. Peter was on time and made my son comfortable prior to starting the lesson. It was a great experience and he is looking forward to continuing his swimming lessons.

Nicolas (9 years old) is a beginner/intermediate swimmer but did not know the fundamentals. Peter was very good and Nicolas had only good things to say - we have 5 total lessons at our house. This was the first lesson and Peter was on time and took the time to find out what Nicolas knew before starting the lesson. I would recommend him as a good teacher, especially if you want someone to come to your house to teach.

(Writing a second review after six months of lessons.)

I take notes while practicing so I'll remember the trouble spots and bring them up during the lesson. Sarah is pretty analytical and she gets to the root cause and tells me exactly what to practice to solve the problem. At the end of every lesson I've got more tools to work with so the next week's practice is focused and effective.

I'm really happy about having Sarah as a teacher.

By the way, I love this story:

The legendary cellist Pablo Casals was asked why he continued to practice at age 90. "Because I think I'm making progress," he replied.

I love to swim and know that it is a great skill to have. I can teach beginners and intermediate some of the basic strokes and help people feel comfortable in the water. I am a year round surfer and love to snorkel as well! I have access to a pool in Solana Beach!

Dean is awesome. We hired him to teach our 7 year old daughter and he includes my husband and I in the lesson too. It's really great that it's a family event. It's pretty amazing how he can work with us all at different skill levels. Plus he makes it fun. It's not just drills, but he has a ton of games that we play to reinforce those skills without making it feel like work. He focuses on our daughter and gives her great exercise in the process as well. He goes easy on us parents and doesn't make us run as much, which we appreciate! :-)

I have been actively swimming for the past 3 years in triathlons. This includes indoor and outdoor swimming. Whether you are a beginner or want to improve your stroke to be more efficient swimming, everyone could use swimming lessons.
