Hi, my name is Amanda and I love all things aquatic! I am passionate about teaching children how to swim as I feel it is an invaluable life skill that can turn into a life long passion. My primary goal is to teach children how to be safe in and around the water. It’s also a priority of mine to make sure my students have fun while they become strong, confident swimmers. Fun fact about me: I learned to swim before I learned to walk!

Brianna, Private Swim Instructor, Lifeguard for Hire, music lover & pug enthusiast

Monte Del Oro

Swim lessons are by far the favorite part of my job. I love being around kids and sharing my passion for being in the water. I grew up swimming, actually swam competitively for 15+ years. I can teach a wide variety of skills from getting comfortable in water, to perfecting your butterfly technique.

I am also fluent in English and Spanish.

Lifeguarding has been one of the highlights of my summers. My goal as a lifeguard is to make sure everyone is safe and feels comfortable being around the water. I also love being around animals and ensuring they can swim safely.

I serve the Phoenix and Tuscon areas of Northern Tucson such as Oro Valley, Marana, Catilina Foothills, among others.

I have also been teaching swim lessons for 7 years, I volunteered for 2 years to learn what I know and have taught my own classes for the other 5 years. I ahem experience with group classes, one on one, special needs and all ages.

I have been a lifeguard since 2013. With my 6 years of experience, I have found a love for what I do. Lifeguarding is a really important and meaningful job that I get the honor of doing and thanks to Happy Swimmers, I can help keep backyard pools safe now too.

10 years experience!

Serving Gilbert and Chandler

Hello! I love teaching swimming! I have ten years of teaching people to swim at all levels- children, adults, and triathletes. I am a former NCAA Div 1 Swimmer from the University of New Hampshire and was a Assistant Coach there as well for one year. I have coached children ages 5-18 in addition to teaching basic skills. I can help you or your child learn to swim or improve as an athlete- mentally or technically. I love teaching swimming because it is a way to learn a life-saving skill and boost self-confidence as well. I have a step-by-step method to help children learn to swim quickly, but most importantly I use patience, creativity, and fun when teaching because each individual and their relationship to water is different. I will be taking 3-4 clients only in the Gilbert and Chandler areas. I look forward to hearing from you!

Karen, Private Swim Instructor, A Family Nurse Practitioner with mastiffs and goats

Tolleson

I began teaching lessons at the age of 15 while swimming competitively in high school and college. I competed internationally and trained for the Olympics while in college, and also began to coach age group and high school swimming year round, along with teaching swim lessons. I love singing, and watching the antics of my five mastiffs and two goats playing with one another. (I am pretty sure a few of my dogs think they are a goat and one goat that thinks she’s a mastiff.) I also love to swim and enjoy others learning to find joy in the water.

I serve the Phoenix communities of Phoenix proper, Tolleson, Avondale (Arizona), among others. 

Laura Ipina, Swim Instructor, Lifeguard

Swim teaching 11 summers now & 7 of them with Happy Swimmers!

I have been teaching since I was 17 years of age. I love teaching because I know I can help the whole family be safe in and around the water. I love all the knowledge I have learned and always like to teach them all I know. It’s a good way of giving back and having fun in the water. I practice synchronized swimming, Spanish, adult learn to swim experience, and learn to swim stroke work & a little bit of coaching.

I love meeting new people. I have been guarding since I was 15 which means I am experience at preventing accidents from happening. I have seen it all. I enjoy what I do.

Maeghyn, Private Swim Instructor

Glendale AZ, 9 years experience :)

I have 9 years Swim Instruction Experience

My swim career began in 2008 working for the local park district in Washington state. From the start I taught ages 6 months to adult where I was able to enjoy watching people grow in their swimming abilities. In 2011 I expanded my teaching to include not only the local park district, but our local YMCA to diversify my teaching method. At the YMCA I continued to teach all ages. I have had the blessing to teach students all all ages, backgrounds and physical abilities to include students with various special needs. As a mom to an active and adventurous 3 year old little boy, I know the importance of properly teaching your child to swim in the most caring, and fun way. A quick fun fact about me is that I absolutely love animals, and love to incorporate that into the way I teach my lessons.

I serve the Phoenix communities of Glendale and Peoria, among others.

Regional Swim Instructor Manager Bettina Perkins

Based in Austin, TX

I’m your Region’s Manager of Swim Instructors. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.

A little more about me… 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 is 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. Welcome to Happy Swimmers! I am happy to help.
