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.

TL;DR: I highly recommend Mirzo to anyone who wants to learn chess, from beginners, to FIDE rated players that wish to improve.

Mirzo is one of a kind. He is a chess professional that can help in all levels.
In our first lesson, he learned my state and we decided what are the best areas to focus on. Mirzo is very constructive, helpful and has great tips. Already after couple of lessons I felt that my chess level improved significantly. During the lessons Mirzo stop from time to time to explain the theory and strategy behind certain moves - which is more valuable than playing hundreds of games. Highly recommended.

Mirzo is an excellent chess teacher for children. He was teaching my 12 year old son. During his lessons Mirzo managed to be both a rather demanding teacher who can really make you a good chess player, and at the same time a friendly person making his communication with a 12 year old boy easygoing and entertaining so that the kid does not feel the lesson as a pressure.

I have been teaching swimming for 2 years and swam competively for 10 years. I was ranked as an age group swimmer and have won multiple LA City Championship medals. I specialize in sprinting and backstroke, but can teach you the fundamentals of swimming in general. My greatest success story was taking a student who couldn't put his head under water, to swimming laps across the pool in 3 months. I teach all ages.

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.

Lindsay is a remarkable teacher/trainer. She helped me to be flexible and feel at peace with my body. I'm now able to touch my toes, and it feels great. If you want to feel comfortable and get big improvement than Lindsay is a great pick for you. You won't regret it.

Lindsey is awesome, the best instructor I've worked with thus far, truly a pleasure. I am already seeing processing after 3 months of lessons and would not change a thing! I would highly recommend her to everyone who has a passion to learn dance.

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.
