5 years swim teaching experience

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!

I have been teaching swim lessons for 22 years and I absolutely love it. I teach a wide variety of students from infants, adults, and really enjoy teaching special needs. I am also a pediatric nurse. I started teaching lessons through the City of Phoenix at the age of 17 and have been at it ever since. I was a very competitive diver and played water polo for 5 years. I also was the assistant swim coach and main diving instructor for the city. My moto is to make learning fun.  It’s all about using your imagination so if your ready lets get started!

Gilbert, 10 years experience!

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!

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.
