Years of Experience: I have been teaching swimming lessons for the past 5 years, but I have been swimming for the majority of my life through summer and winter swim teams since I was 6 years old. 

Swim area(s) of expertise: I can teach any age range, as I have previously taught between the ages of 2 years old to 75 years old. I can also teach at any level, whether it’s a child wanting to improve their stroke, or an adult who has never swam before.

How I got into teaching: I have been on swim teams for a good majority of my life, from when I was 6 years old up until I graduated high school. I have been a lifeguard for my summer pool since I was 15 years old, and I didn’t start teaching until I started working at the Ridley Area YMCA in 2017. I began teaching a few times a week with group lessons and a few private lessons for a few years. When I eventually became full time as a lifeguard / swim instructor, I ended up teaching all child care lessons every day as well as my adult lessons.

Available Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.
