A little about me:
Hi, I have been teaching swim lessons for the last 25 years. Private School during school year, summer camp and private lessons. Ages 3 to 33. I was asked to teach a 3yr old swim class. It ended up being fun, and 25 years later, I’m still teaching swimming. It also helps my stamina when I go surfing.

I like to try new things and be fun and silly when teaching lessons. Children usually take well to my lighthearted nature. I feel good form is important. However, the younger children are, you want the focus of their lessons on safety. Try and have fun, be safe, learn good technique. Usually as they get older, the last two switch.

The better someone swims, the more we will do. Swimming is like an automated light switch going on. You don’t know when its going to go on, one day, one week, one month, one year? But one day, when it goes on, you will see it in your child’s swimming. There are many steps to teaching freestyle. The more a child can master, the more we can swim. If the younger one needs to learn doggie paddle and back float, we start there. We start from the most advanced swimming ability and go from there. If ready to start freestyle and back scull, that’s what we will do. If they can master freestyle and backstroke, we can move on to butterfly.

I will demonstrate, then we swim, hopefully having fun along the way. The little guys, if I can convince them that I am Captain American, usually makes them swim better. Most of the time, I am just a big kid myself, which helps. I’ve worked with some special needs but have limited experiences and training. I’d prefer this be brought to my attention upfront so that I may prepare appropriately.

Goals are good and important, and I will help to make sure they are realistic. This not only helps to motivate the swimmer, but also helps Me create a lesson plan that is tailored to meet your goals.

I’m looking forward to meeting you or swimming with you. Any questions, feel free to ask. And I’m not sure I should be telling you this, but (shh…in Eatontown, we have one of the nicest pools.)
