ASA qualified swimming teacher
13 years continuous teaching experience ranging from toddlers to all NPTS (National Plan for Teaching Swimming) stages. These are the Beginners to Honours certificates taught mainly to school age swimmers. He also teaches adults from beginners to advanced.
Stepan has a reputation for getting non swimmers swimming relatively quickly by first increasing their confidence of simply being in the water.
He is accomplished at stroke analysis and improvement of stroke technique for swimming students who may be stuck at a particular stage of NPTS by conveying what may seem like complex technique instructions in a way that can be easily broken down to understand and implement.
In this Covid 19 environmnet he is available to consider 1 to 1 teaching in private pools for those not happy with returning to a crowded group swimming lesson environment.
