Private Swim Instructor
6 years experience teaching!
Serving: Austin, Cedar Park, Lago Vista, Jonestown, Leander
I have loved the water since I was able to walk. I have traveled and lived in three countries: China, the United States, and the United Arab Emirates. my time living in these countries has provided me with various teaching opportunities and also exposure to different cultures. Students I had instructed have been from China, the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Korea, and India. The summer of 2013 was when I became interested in teaching swim lessons to learners of all ages. I had previously served on the aquatics team of Lifeline Aquatics, Safeguard Aquatics, the Lancaster Family YMCA, Twin Lakes Family YMCA, Lititz Recreation Center, and Waterloo Swimming. As I worked with these aquatic organizations, my love of teaching swimming to all learners increased.
I look forward to working with you and your family to help you make swimming an enjoyable experience as the summer heat comes upon us.
I am Water Safety Instructor certified, have been teaching swim lessons for about a year, and absolutely love helping others learn to swim! I swim competitively for the national group on my club team, my varsity high school team, and will be swimming Division 1 in college next year. This background helps me teach lessons to people of all ages and skill levels.
I have been lifeguarding for a year, and I have loved every minute of it. Because I enjoy the pool so much, it feels great to know that I am allowing others to have the same experience by creating a safe yet fun environment. When guarding, I am always on the lookout to prevent problems before they occur.
I serve the Austin communities of Austin proper, Leander, Cedar Park, Round Rock
My name is Becky and I am a fun swim instructor. I’ve been teaching and coaching all ages since 1991. My lessons are always enjoyable and lifelong water safety is my top priority. I have a concentration on technique. My methods and “box of tricks” are tried-and-true and sure to be effective for all ages and skill levels. I’m known for being patient, kind and understanding with fearful swimmers. I have a passion for swimming and I can’t wait to share it with you and your family!
Serving: Austin and San Marcos area
I am WSI certified, have spent years as a competitive swimmer, and love being around the pool deck. I really love teaching people of all skill levels to swim, as it provides me with the opportunity to make a difference in my community and give the gift of a life saving skill.
I am a former competitive swimmer who has spent many years around the pool. I am well trained in CPR and make sure to attend in-service training classes every month in order to refine my skills. I really enjoy lifeguarding because it provides me to make a difference in my community and create a fun yet safe environment.

I first learned how to swim when I was 5-years-old, jumping into the pool right after my older brothers. Since then, I have been a competitive swimmer on my high school swim team and club swim team.
I began teaching lessons at 15, working with children as young as 2 in group and private settings, as well as adults. My favorite lessons were with special needs children with disabilities like autism, down syndrome and ADHD. I believe that every child is different, so there is not right or wrong way to learn – I do my best to adjust my teaching to the individual.
With my 4 years as a Summer league swim coach, I am knowledgable on instructing any level of swimmers – from those just learning how to blow bubbles and floating to advanced swimmers looking to learn how to dive, flip turn and perform proper stroke technique. Above all else, I make sure the learning process is fun and everyone is smiling at the end of the day!
My dream job as a child was to lifeguard at my local neighborhood pool, the place where I spent every Summer growing up. I began working here at 15-years-old, and returned every Summer for 5 years as a lifeguard, swim instructor, pool manager and swim coach.
Since beginning my college career at the University of Texas at Austin, I have lifeguarded for the RecSports Aquatics center. After working here for 3 years, I have been promoted to headguard as well as received my lifeguard instructor certification.
With my years as a Summer league swim coach, I have endless patience, pool games and compassion for working with kids. While my priority is always safety, I’d be more than happy to lead races, sharks and minnows, pigeon, categories… the list goes on!
Serving: San Antonio, Pleasanton, New Braunfels, San Marcus, Austin
I have 2 years Swim Instruction, Coaching, & lifeguard experience.
As a swim instructor, I teach kids to not only learn how to swim but to love swimming. I want them to be safe in the water and not depend on anyone else to help them. What I enjoy most about teaching anyone how to swim is seeing their progress and seeing them start to really love swimming and enjoy being in water. I love taking a kid who was originally scared and timid in the water and getting them to absolutely love swimming and love coming to swim lessons. Teaching swim lessons is a very fulfilling job and I love feeling like I have an impact on a child’s life. I still remember my swim instructor from when I first learned how to swim and I hope that the kids I teach will remember me and all I teach them. I have taught over 100 people ranging all different age groups, from as young as 6 months old to adults over 50. I was also a part time swim coach for a summer league team and a year-round team. I’m great with teaching freestyle and backstroke and moderate on teaching the harder strokes breaststroke and butterfly. I have also taught some more experienced kids how to do dives and flip turns. I have taken kids from fearing the water to swimming all the way across a 25-meter pool with no help.

My Swim Instructor Bio: Hello I’ve been actively teaching swim lessons for six years and enjoy this more than any other profession I’ve ever been involved in. There is nothing better than doing what you love for a living and being able to teach and share it with others. I get to teach a child; learn life long skills that last a life time, as well as safety and the joy of the water. I’m always amazed at how students learn so much in a short period of time. It also fun to watch them, “Strut Their Stuff” when they become confident at what they have learned. I started swimming at age 3 and have never enjoyed anything more than the water. I have been a competitive swimmer, PADI diver and Coast Guard Auxiliary member for many years.
I am also Manager of Swim Instructors in All Areas except California–AZ,TX, DC, and NY. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.
Swim Instructor Bio:
Teaching swim lesson skills has been a 10-year adventure. I enjoy knowing that the lessons I teach will help someone improve their quality of life as well as maybe even save their life one day. I have taught around 3,500 student swim lessons and it continues to be as fun now as when I first started teaching.
Lifeguard Instructor bio:

Advanced Certifications: Water Front Lifeguard, Lifeguard Instructor, Lifeguard Instructor Trainer, Water Safety Instructor and Water Safety Instructor Trainer and Certified Pool Operator
Hi, I’m Sydney and I’m currently a sophomore at The University of Texas at Austin. Being by the water is my favorite place to be during the hot summers in Texas. I was a competitive swimmer for 14 years and still enjoy swimming laps in my free time.
For the past five summers, I have been a private and group swim instructor for ages 3 to 20. I have a wide spectrum of experience from children who are afraid to get in the water to competitive swimmers who need stroke instruction.
I enjoy building trust with the children I’ve taught and allowing them to progress into confident swimmers. I believe encouragement goes a long way and try to make the learning process as enjoyable as swimming is to me!
For the past five summers, I’ve lifeguarded at a city pool and for private events. When life guarding, I work to maintain a fun and safe environment for everyone inside and around the pool.
Because I am constantly scanning the pool and assessing the swimmers abilities, I saved lives each summer that I was working and prevented more accidents by enforcing the rules of the pool as well as general pool safety procedures. Last summer I was head life guard for our staff before retiring from my hometown pool. I take pride in my job and strive to continue to be a dependable life guard.
I serve the Austin communities of Austin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, among others.

Yumi and Jere were wonderful lifeguards when they guarded our end of year pool party on Wednesday June 11 from 11-2. They were in touch with me, were on time and prepared, and were very responsible and knowledgeable. I was so happy to be able to put two adults in charge of our fourth grade class party.
Based on my experience with Yumi Temple and her cohort Jere, I would highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. So happy we used your business.
Hi Jenn.. wow today was really scary. I had to use my first aid skills on my mom! We work at the same preschool & she had an allergic reaction & went into shock! I did everything I remembered until the paramedics came.. I really can’t thank you enough for teaching me everything I needed to know!
Everything about my experience with Happy Swimmers has been amazing! From the scheduling to the fantastic teacher they sent for my 5 and 6 year old. The instructor, Emma, had to contend with 2 very different personalities along with 2 different levels of swimming experience. She was more than equipped to deal with that and gave each child unparalleled support, encouragement and instruction. I highly recommend this service to all parents that want to give their child a great experience in being water safe!
We have three kids ages 7, 4, and 2 & 1/2. This was our second year having Happy Swimmers, with instructor Trisha Commons, come teach our kids (the two oldest) to swim. I tried another company the year before I tried Happy Swimmers and although the kids learned swim safety, they were bored and did not learn how to enjoy the pool. Trisha got our son, who did not really like swimming, having fun and by the end of last year could swim the entire length of the pool on his own.
Trisha is great with the kids and is flexible in her teaching style to work with different personalities. She is able to get the kids confident in their abilities and teaches them how to swim, but also teaches them how to have fun! I will definitely be asking Happy Swimmers and Trisha to teach the kids again next year.
I have a toddler and a pool and wanted to make sure my son learned water safety. After taking some group classes last summer, I knew I wanted more one-on-one attention at our home. This summer I reviewed several in-home companies and was impressed with Happy Swimmers approach of water safety.
Trish worked with my stubborn 2-yr old 2-3 times a week. Within the first lesson he knew how to climb out of the pool and to ask permission before getting in. Although our goal was to get him water comfortable more than “swimming”, he indeed learned to swim within a few weeks. We extended our lessons and really appreciated Trish’s approach. We will sign up again next summer. Many of our friends with children happened to be present on several lessons and I expect they will also sign up next summer as well.
Hired a happy swimmers for private life guard for a party for over 200 people at my house. The lifeguard was great. She called to confirm before, came on time, and stayed later then we originally signed up because the party went over. She also showed up on time despite there being a black out that because of storms the day before. I highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
