My name is Cameron Henry and I am currently an instructor with Making Waves Swim School. I have been with the company for approximately four years and truly enjoy teaching swimming. As far as my background, I have been swimming since the age of 3 and swam competitively in high school. During my high school years I was also certified to become a lifeguard and working at my local YMCA and a summer camp. I have always loved working with children and teaching swimming has allowed me an outlet to do so. As far as my teaching style, it changes with each student. Each student’s needs, whether child or adult, can be different, so my style of teaching varies from client to client.
Swimming an essential skill that everyone should know at its most basic levels. Teaching survival skills and strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Floating and Treading) provide the building blocks for both children and adults to leave the comfort of private lessons and explore their community pools, beaches and vacations. It is my belief that learning these skills also provides a strong sense of accomplishment and confidence within the individual. I motivate all my clients by both pushing them out of their comfort zone and encouraging them to always do their best. I meet the goals of parents by being in constant contact with them at every stage of the session. For new clients, I will discuss what their goals are for their child and then touch base to see if these goals are being met or if there is something that must be critiqued. I strive to make sure every client that comes through my lesson, leaves with confidence and a mastery of the basic skills.
Finally, I am currently a certified lifeguard with a CPR and AED certification. I also am a high school teacher with a concentration in Special Education. I have taught students with disabilities both physical and developmental and enjoy it to the fullest.
