Days Available for appointments: Mondays & Wednesdays
Years of experience teaching: I’ve been teaching swim lessons for 13 years.
Swim area(s) of expertise: I have experience teaching all ages, from 6 months to 86 years, and all ability levels from beginner to swim team. I have the most expertise with the following three groups; 3-5 y/o, pre swim team, and adults, from tense beginners to triathletes.
How I got into teaching: After Lifeguarding for a year and watching swim lessons being taught I started teaching my own classes. I went on to receive both American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor certification and YMCA Swim Lesson Instructor certification. I learned most of my competitive stroke technique when I interned under the Villanova Swim Team, where I taught at their camp for two summers. I put that knowledge to use coaching pre-swim teams at the former Ardmore YMCA for 5 years.
