I have been swimming since I was a child and have always loved being in the water. Although I never had formal lessons myself, I joined the swim team in both Primary School and High School and enjoyed water activities after school. I enjoy teaching swimming lessons because I love to see the joy on a kids face when they get a new skill for the first time. Being around water should be a fun and enjoyable experience and I truly believe every child should know how to swim. In my free time you can find me poolside, supporting my daughter and her swimming squad at carnivals.
I am an outgoing and friendly person. As an instructor, I am nurturing and patient, but stern when needed. For example, if I have beginner students, I will ease their fears and encourage them to try new tasks and have fun while learning. For my more experienced swimmers, I will push them to improve their swimming abilities so that they can reach their goals. I teach technique before speed and endurance and make sure that my students know survival skills, which I believe are crucial, before perfecting strokes so that they can be safe in the water. I also make sure that my students can perform one task before moving on to the next so that they do not become overwhelmed. I encourage parents to communicate with me about their child’s progress and/or goals that they would like their child to meet.
I currently hold my Swim Teacher Licence, Autism Swim Accreditation, First Aid, and CPR certificates.
I currently offer at mobile services and services at an indoor hydrotherapy pool (32 degrees)
