Heather's Bio

I am a lifelong swimmer with a passion for the sport. Five years ago I became an American Red Cross certified lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor. For the past five years I have been teaching swimming to all age levels during the year at the local YMCA.This has included coaching triathletes on the swimming leg of the triathlon. In the summer I run my own program outside of the YMCA. I am also certified in CPR and the AED by the American Red Cross, and I regularly practice these skills. I have taught dozens of students at all levels and ages, and I am very experienced teaching young children who are non-swimmers. I provide a lovely, private setting and an encouraging, friendly atmosphere. I have children of my own, and I know how to relate to kids. I value patience and kindness especially for young swimmers just learning. I will help your child to become comfortable in the water and to overcome their anxieties. I also care about your child's feelings, the progress they make in my class, and I will ensure you get value for your money. In my classes I emphasize water safety and survival skills along with proper body position and stroke technique. My curriculum is consistent with the American Red Cross program. I was featured in an article in the Patriot Ledger (April 25, 2012) about teaching babies to swim. I swim with the Masters program at the Y for the past four years. I know my love and enthusiasm for the sport will rub off on your child! Enrollment for the 2014 summer season is open. Please be aware that spots fill up quickly. Also, 24 hour notice is required for cancelling or rescheduling to avoid being charged for the missed lesson.
