ASA (Swim England) qualified swimming teacher
I have almost 15 years’ experience of success in teaching toddlers, school age children and adults to swim. Using effective techniques for teaching both beginners and advanced swimmers, I have excellent knowledge of and experience in teaching the National Plan for Teaching Swimming stages (NPTS) from Beginner through to Honours certificates.
I have the reputation for getting non-swimmers swimming relatively quickly, and the ability to put them at ease, increase their confidence of simply being in the water, and gaining their trust.
I am accomplished at stroke analysis and have a sound understanding of how to improve stroke technique especially for those students who may be stuck at a particular NPTS stage, and can break down complex technique instructions in a way that students can easily understand and implement. I am also NRASTC qualified to 2.2 metre retrieval depth for pools without lifeguards.
I can also offer 1 to 1 teaching for those who are not comfortable returning to a group swimming lesson environment in current Covid circumstances if you are lucky enough to either own or have access to a private pool.
I am a WABBA qualified gym instructor with personal training experience, and can offer carefully designed training programmes, tailored to the specific needs of the individual, incorporating fitness, increased strength and basic bodybuilding. I have expert knowledge and understanding of anatomy and exercise and I can advise both men and women on the correct use of gym equipment, explain which exercises are most beneficial, which are pointless and, importantly which are harmful.
