Elshen E.


Notice: August will be my last month of teaching, I anticipate that this will most likely be a permanent break from aquatics. Thank you to all my clients who have stuck with me until now! Hi there, I am Elshen [pronounced el-shin], I have been teaching on Propel for the last 3 years. I teach 2-3 Saturdays a month, and I am triple-vaccinated. My availability usually extends to about a month ahead, and more times are added as my schedule gets clearer. Feel free to email me at elshenework@gmail.com for any inquiries or questions before booking. I am specialized in teaching Red Cross levels 1-6 (Ages 5-12) however, I have experience teaching children from ages 4-14, and I am comfortable with student of all ages. Making my students laugh, grow their confidence and refine their skills are my favourite parts of my job. Swimmers can expect a knowledgeable and engaging instructor that students will come back to for more fun! For the past 8 years, I have been involved in aquatics, from achieving my national life guarding certificate to teaching my own swimming lessons. I have experience working in Community Centres, Semi-Private Swimming Lessons and have now moved onto doing private lessons. The best part about doing private lessons is that I am able to help my students directly by focusing on techniques that work best for each body type and skill level.

Where I Teach

Nestled in the heart of Central Coquitlam, this local neighbourhood gem is an exceptionally warm pool featuring a spacious and modern interior. The shallow side has stairs which are perfect to help toddlers and children adjust to the water one step at a time. Because this pool ranges from 4 to 11 feet deep, adults can also learn everything here – from beginner floats to treading deep water.

Access instructions are provided after your booking is complete.
