"I saw my kids make more progress in one lesson than they did in 3 or 4 lesson sets in the program they were enrolled in before."

My name is Chloe Miller and I have been teaching swimming lessons for three years now and one year here at Propel!

I am passionate, enthusiastic and driven and I like to take those aspects of myself into the work I do in the water with my clients.

I am a first-year nursing student at UBCO and have my first aid, LSI, NLS, and WSI certifications.

Do you want to swim like a fish? Need to practice that back float? You've got the right instructor!

I have been teaching lessons for 6 years and have experience teaching all levels from water baby's and tot's to adults and seniors and everyone in between.

I enjoy working with swimmers of all ages, helping to build confidence as the swimmer progresses their skills at their own pace and level of comfort.

Hello I have been teaching for three years and I have taught all ages from 3 to adults.

I am certified by the lifesaving Society. My focus is stroke development and getting your kids use to the water.

I enjoy teaching all ages including adults who have never swam before.

Noor T.

Burlington, ON

I am a very friendly and fun teacher, but I do like to push the swimmer in class so that they can reach new achievements in each class.

I like to celebrate all achievements and promote a positive style of learning. I am patient, understanding and caring.

Most importantly, I just care that the swimmer is has fun, feels comfortable in the water, and learns new things.

What People Are Saying

I liked that my instructor Rebecca explains the reason behind things, and that there’s a venue and schedule that’s convenient for me. I am determined to practice and improve. It was a great start; We exceeded my expectations of what I could learn in an hour :)
