My 8 y/o son had 6 sessions with Tony. He gained confidence in the water and showed great progress from one session to the next. Tony did an excellent job in teaching him how to feel safe in the water. He was very patient and supportive and established a good rapport with my son. We are planning to continue to take swimming lessons with Tony in the future.

I am 25 years old and was not knowing how to swim until I got lesson from Tony. Initially, I mentioned him tat i want to learn the swimming in three weeks as i wanted to give surprise to my friends and this end of 3rd week and i can say i know the basic swimming with best technique. The best thing about his lesson is that he never force you to learn the steps as he got lot of simple techniques and tricks to catch up easily .

Thanks tony. I will join expert level batch soon.

Semi-private lesson review

Tony was the instructor for my 5 year old and my 3 year old at the Piney Branch Elementary School. We orginally bought a 6 pack of semi-private lessons for both of them but after lesson 4, my 3 year old claimed the water was too cold and refused to go back in. Tony suggested it woul be a better use of my money to convert the rest of the lessons to private lessons for the 5 year old. She swam backstroke with fins without his help by the last lesson.

Highly Experienced

Tony is a highly skilled swim instructor. He works at the psychological level to get over the water fears and learn swimming at a faster pace. He is patient, flexes the time schedules at ease and it has been great to work with him.

Five Stars -- Excellent!

The class we had with Tony was a beginner group of four. None of us knew how to swim in the beginning (I, personally, always had a fear of being in the water and would naturally sink), but within the first 20 minutes of our class, all of us began to swim without our floating devises!

Tony's instruction style is straight forward, and you therefore learn much more in such short period of time. Although Tony is a no nonsense type of instructor (which we all really liked by the way), he is also very personable and has the patience to explain instructions, techniques and/or processes well.

A downside of learning with a group is coordinating class schedules with friends. However, we were very fortunate that Tony was gave us a flexibility that we were able to complete all six classes.

Overall, our group agrees that Tony is the best instructor we've had. And we are looking forward to him holding classes in the DC metro so we could sign up for a second batch of lessons.

If you want to learn how to swim and learn the proper techniques quickly from an excellent instructor, we highly recommend Tony.

Great Lesson

Tony is very excellent, experienced, patient, flexible, knowledgeable instructor. My 9 years old son enjoys his 6 lesson and after 4 lesson he already can do free-style and back stroke.
I would definitely recommend other people and have other lesson with him in the future.
