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!

Hi there! My name is Amanda Wells and I love all things aquatic. I found my passion when I was eleven and saw Michael Phelps swim in the 2008 Summer Olympics. I immediately joined a club team and went on to become a lifeguard, swim instructor, and lifeguard instructor in college. During the school year, I teach eighth graders English Language Arts and Social Studies. My favorite thing about teaching swim lessons is seeing my students become comfortable, confident, and independent in the water.

I have been teaching swim lessons for 3 years. I have taught all ages ranging from 6 months all the way up to adults. I have also taught in class settings as well as private lessons.

I have been lifeguarding pools for 3 years. My favorite part about lifeguarding is that it is always a positive environment because people love swimming!

*Has Pool Access in Glendale

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

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.

Vlad, Private Swim Instructor, Lifeguard, #TimeTraveler

Vail

I been teaching Swim Lesson for around 4 years already using Red Cross guideline techniques. A lot of the times I use my own imagination in order to have fun an an effective learning experience. Some of my background experience touched special children that needed extra help in order to remain confident in water.

Every weekend in one of the pools I’ve been working in weve scheduled event parties with usually families or a group of people (avg. 50) renting the pool. Usually we had to decorate the pool in one specific theme so everyone will have fun. In some cases a lot of kids were involved so we had to be extra prepared.

I serve the Arizona communities of Tucson, Phoenix, Scotsdale, Gilbert, among others.
