Meet The Team
Female Swimming Teachers
Hello, I’m Becky! My career in the leisure industry began as a Lifeguard when I was 16 years old. I have now been teaching swimming for 8 years and hold a Level 2 teaching qualification with the ASA.
I have experience teaching children and adults of all ages and abilities.
My name is Caitlin; I am from Stirling in Scotland and I began swimming at a very young age joining my local team at the age of 9. While I was 16 I became club captain and I completed my UKCC Level 1 coaching swimming to work with the club.
I am a former competitive swimmer, having reached Regional championship finals as a teenager and last year competed in the World Masters Championships in Budapest, almost breaking into the top 20 in my age.
I have been diving competitively since the age of 6, representing my city at national competitions; my ranking 1st in the nationals at the age of 9.
Naturally, I then began coaching for the swimming club I was part at the age of 22.
I am passionate about fitness and well-being. I have always been into sport from a young age, from gymnastics to athletics. My background is diving and I have been competing for over 15 years, from regional competitions to international and European competitions.
Hi, my name is Emily, I am 28 years old and I have been teaching swimming on a part time basis since I was 16 years old. I previously swam competitively until the age of 15 and have continued to swim recreationally since.
Hello everyone, my name is Esther and I have been a swimmer for 16 years participating in national competitions back in Spain. I love swimming. Not only is it an essential life skill, but it's also great for your body and your mind.
Hi I’m Eva. I’m a former free diver and a competitive swimmer. My teaching style is shaped by the belief that each client is unique and requires a unique approach. I focus on passing essential swimming skills, whilst also taking into consideration the natural tendencies of the swimmer.
Hi I’m Fionnuala and I am and Level 2 qualified swimming teacher, with multiple years of experience teaching children and adults of all ages and abilities. I love seeing my pupils grow in their skill, and more importantly confidence in the water, in lessons with me as well as their overall enjoyment in the pool.
Hi I am Gaia and I am a swim teacher for Swim Expert. I first got into swimming through learn to swim. I carried on, competitively swimming for my local club and competed for Hampshire for 50m and 100m butterfly. Butterfly is my favourite stroke because I think it is a very beautiful.
Hello, my name is Jasmine and I am a former competitive swimmer, having reached regional standard. I’ve been passionate about the sport for many years now and even took part in multiple open water events including a 10K river swim.
As a level two swimming teacher I hope to pass on my love and dedication of the sport. I love any sort of challenge so am willing to take on any level of swimmer and strive to achieve their targets with them.
My name is Jenny and I started practising as a teacher 10 years ago when I fostered some children. They didn't want to be shouted at from the side of the pool and asked me to teach them, as they enjoyed our pool sessions together.
My name is Julie, I was taught to swim by my father at a young age and have had a love for swimming ever since. I introduced my own children to swimming and have spent many hours poolside with them both at training sessions and competitions.
I’m a lover of all things sweet and of course, the smell of Chlorine! As well as being a swimming teacher I am also a professional photographer and videographer.
I have been involved in swimming teaching since I was 11 years old, I’m now 23, and I’ve only grown more and more in love with the process of teaching swimming year after year.
Having worked in law for over 20 years, I felt an office environment wasn't my calling. My father was a swimming teacher, and taught me at the age of 3 to swim with confidence and have fun. Nearing the age of 40 (the chlorine keeps me looking young!), I knew I had to make a change that involved something I was passionate about and loved.
Hi my name is Karen and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself.
Since a young age I have had a passion for swimming and have been a swimming teacher now for over 30 years, working with children from 2½ - 11 years old.
Since I’ve started teaching, I have found that it’s is important to always make students feel comfortable and reassure them when in the water, as it helps them boost their confidence allowing them to progress quicker and be more inclined to come to every lesson.
Hello! My name is Lana and I’m swimming teacher/coach. I working with swimming more that 20 year, but only last 10 year on full time. I Sweden, where I come from, in was my hobby. I do have Lever1/2, swimming/coach qualifications with the ASA. I love to swim self and trying to swim every year Swimathon, difference distance.
Sport is a part of my life and movement is essential to a balanced life. Skills acquired through sport, such as concentration and mastery of emotions during competitions, have help me every day to complete my goals.
With over 20 years experience in childcare behind me (4 yrs as a Nursery Nurse, 17 years as a Professional Nanny), I felt like I needed a new challenge. With the love of swimming myself and the joy of teaching and caring for children it was suggested to me why don't I become a Swimming Teacher.
I am an ASA Level 2 Teacher and Level 3 Swim Coach having taught swimming since 2003. In addition to being a hands-on swimming teacher, I work at a strategic level in the delivery of swim programmes both in a swim school and in a highly successful private school for girls in the Sevenoaks area. Some of my students have competed at National level.
Swimming is something I can never get tired of. I love helping people learn what they need to become a better and more confident swimmer. From a young age I was always in the water for birthday parties and days out with the family. I then began swimming competitively at the age of 8 and represented my club at Regionals.
I've been swimming since I can remember. My parents put me in swimming lessons when I was little and i've swam ever since. I love being in the water, whether it's at a pool or the sea. I started as a swimming instructor in Portugal after I graduated from University and I took the lifeguard course as well.
My name is Olivia and I am a fully qualified swimming instructor. Swimming has been my passion since I was a child, representing Bridgend County Swim Squad as a performance swimming who competed at many swimming galas and trails.
Fun and effective lessons are my main goal. Swimming is a lifesaving skill however it should not feel like a chore. I love swim teaching; I can see people progress and enjoy my lessons which in turn makes me happy, and there is nothing better than enjoying your job. Not many university students can express how much they love their job and that is an achievement which gives me a sense of pride.
Teaching is in my nature and something I am passionate about. I swim regularly myself and believe it is never too early (or too late) to fall in love with water! During the week I am a primary school teacher but with my love of water and background in competitive swimming, it was perfect for me to get involved in the teaching side of aquatics.
Hi, I'm Shola and I have been swimming since I was a baby. I love the water; everyone should enjoy it and learn how to swim! In high school I was a competitive swimmer for 4 years and then became a national coach for the Canadian Special Olympics for 6 years.
I have been a keen recreational swimmer since primary school, I have always been comfortable in the water, in fact I had 2 of my 3 children in a birthing pool!
Having supported my eldest daughter to club level I decided to turn my hobby into a profession. I qualified in baby and pre-school in March 2018.
Hello, I’m Steph. I started in the leisure industry as a sports officer within a very busy leisure centre. I worked in all areas until I found my love for teaching swimming. I have now been within the swimming industry 2 years.
I have lots of experience teaching young children of all abilities and have now within the last year been applying my skills to adults.
My name is Tanya. I have been swimming from early childhood having been brought up in sunnier climates. On return to the UK it was suggested in my school swimming lessons that I should join the local swimming club. This I very anxiously did at the age of 10 and it lead to many happy years competing for several clubs, my county and participating in regional and national competitions.
Hi, my name is Toyin. I have always loved swimming and feel blessed to be able to share my passion and experience with so many different individuals.
Two things inspired me to become a swimming teacher. Seeing my young son struggling with a fear of water during his lessons and watching my daughter sail through the levels, all the way to achieving her life saving award.
