I have been teaching swimming for the last 4 years.  I was a late starter in learning to swim but  once I learnt I progressed really quickly.

I went on to swim for city of Wakefield . I  am now a  mum of 3 children so swimming and safety in water is paramount. I am also a lifeguard, which I have done from been 18.

I love seeing the progression from scared children who cling to you for dear life to been over confident blossoming swimmers. I also love teaching adults who feel embarrased and nervous that they cannot swim at their age.  its a good feeling. I love my job xx

I get great satisfaction from teaching and coaching swimming especially helping swimmers of all abilities develop and improve further. I have worked with many different adults and children helping them achieve their goals, achieving awards and giving them a swimming life skill.

I have been teaching with Swimbrite for the past three years and love every minute. Being able to teach children the techniques to develop a major life skill is so rewarding.

I passionately believe that being active is invaluable for every child in their development and it is great to see them enjoy and achieve, in swimming.

I am currently studying my MA in Physical education, building upon my Ba (Hons) in PE. I  have taught and coached swimming since 2012, from international summer schools to 1-2-1 basis, including a full range of abilities and ages.

I strongly believe in creating a fun, safe environment within lessons is key, not only for enjoyment but their progression too. Seeing a child develop, grow and learn is priceless.
