A little about me:
Hello! My name is Evelyn, and my interest in swim was sparked watching competitive swimmers. It encouraged me to become a certified lifeguard, and help teach others how to learn to swim! I love to teach swim lessons because I really enjoy seeing the joy in a person’s eyes when they accomplish a task they may thought was too difficult to master. My teaching style is very simple – I like to observe my student’s potential and see where they need improvement. Once the swimmer is comfortable with a skill, and feels great about the skill, I like to move on with games and fun activities with provided equipment before we go into another swimming technique. Outside of the pool, I am a musician and have been playing all kinds of instruments since I was in 3rd grade. I especially enjoy playing the saxophone! Music is a big part of my life and I absolutely love listening to and playing music.

Teaching beginners is the most exciting part of lessons for me! Getting to know a beginner swimmer is important to me because I can then evaluate how we will start their learn-to-swim journey together. I love to be the inspiration in someone’s swim journey because I want them to love the sport as much as I do! I started swimming at a young age because I nearly drowned at a beach. Ever since then I knew that swimming is not just a sport but is definitely an important survival skill. I never wanted to experience that fear ever again and I do not want anyone else to share that feeling! This is why I believe learning basic survival techniques is crucial for all. I love to reassure and cheer on my swimmers as they progress through their lessons. I also like to make sure they enjoy it as much as I do! Having a younger sibling, I have great patience with kids! In my past, I have taught kids with special needs as well and I absolutely adored those lessons. I have family members who are both typical and neurodivergent, and I taught all them how to swim! I love to make sure I am communicating the best I can. Talking with parents before, during, and after the lesson is super helpful because I want to assure comfortability and I want to make sure we are all on the same page.

I am Lifeguard, CPR, AED, First Aid and Emergency Care certified. Let’s meet in the pool!
