About the lessons

Teaching style

Learning with me is more of a mental challenge with the added benefit of a physical workout. I believe a thoughtful approach to swimming will give everybody a great workout, with the number of laps swum increasing as a great looking stroke is formed. Whatever your ability or fitness levels are now, when you swim with me you will be able to capture the feeling of a great swim again and again. I structure sessions around every individual by breaking down the stroke into sections and movements and identifying what can be improved and how to do so. With this process you will feel all the differences between what you are doing and what you will want to do to improve.

This will be a learning experience that will leave you feeling good about yourself, your own abilities and explore how thoroughly enjoyable swimming is. Every movement I ask you to make is sympathetic to your body’s own limitations. Every one leaves their session with a comfortable neck, shoulders, back and knees. This is a way of learning and improving yourself that is going to give you longevity, fitness and suppleness through swimming well.

How great would it be if we all felt able to go down to the pool and knock out the number of laps or swim for the amount of time that we know is improving our ability? Or go and explore all the beautiful, tranquil open water ways around us, be it at home or on holiday? We can all do this, whatever your ability is now you can improve yourself.

About children’s Lessons

Children improve best when they have the consistency of knowing who their swimming teacher is and that they will be greeted by the same person every time they come for a lesson. As a teacher who can get to know and understand a child over many years, I am able to improve a swimmers style and confidence every lesson.

About adult Lessons

As an adult it can be difficult to schedule a lesson once every week, so I recommend learning over a short timeframe. We can organise up to 4 hours of lessons a day, for anything from 1 day to a week.
