About the Instructor

Gender: Female
Location: Plano, Texas
Rate: $30.00/30 Minutes

Bio
I have been teaching swim lessons for 9 years. I am a red cross certified instructor. I teach at my home in a pool designed for beginning and intermediate swimmers. My pool is a salt water pool which means it is gentler on skin,eyes, and hair.

Teaching Approach
I use a varied teaching approach. I use what I know from Sports Psychology, and from my original training in The Red Cross Swim Method and combine them to form my own approach. I believe the fundamentals are very important for beginners. Learning proper breathing and front glide/front crawl are my first focus. I generally add on after front crawl, and back float are mastered. Back crawl, then Elementary Backstroke Kick, Dolphin Kick, then a Kneeling Dive, Full Dive, then Breastoke, and into to Butterfly, and improved Front Crawl and Back Crawl Technique.

Success stories
I am proud to have many success stories. I enjoy and have success in teaching both young children, older kids and adults of all ages. I was fortunate to learn to swim at an early age, and have enjoyed recreational swimming for many years.

Great Instructor for Non-Swimmer

My nephew, who is afraid of water, has been taking lessons from Laura for the past two years. He is only here for about 3 weeks in the summer, but he has taken lessons 2-3 times per week for the past two summers. Seeing the vast improvement in his technique and his lessening fear of water is wonderful. I thank Laura for her patience and perseverance in keeping my nephew focused and on track. It also helps that half of Laura's pool is very shallow, about 3 feet, so he felt comfortable and was able to stand up in the pool.

Last summer, my nephew was jumping in the deep part of the pool (never thought I would see that!) and swimming across the width of the pool. ! I think if he had just two more weeks, he would have learned to feel totally comfortable.

He will be here all summer this year and I know he will FINALLY learn to swim and not be afraid. Laura is a good instructor and worth the price.

Our childred (ages 5 and 3) began taking lessons with Laura this summer. We have been very pleased with the progress they have made and with Laura's patience and ability work with them. Especially our 3 year old son who was very scared the first lesson, and now he looks forward to swim class each week. We would highly recommend Laura.

Wonderful Swim Instructor

We came to Laura after a bad swim lesson incident and she has made a world of difference for my son. I feel like I can let him go with his school in the spring to Hawaiin Falls without being terrified. She's also been so kind to my youngest and even though he won't take lessons and get in the water because of the incident, he's at least putting his feet in the water and can see that not every swim instructor is mean, which is a huge step forward for us.

Thank you Laura!

Finally at Ease in the Water. . .

I have learned so much from my lessons with Laura. She is an amazing instructor. Laura is patient and makes you feel at ease in the water. Her lessons are informative and demanding at times. I have progressed tremendously under her instruction. Thank you Laura!
