Olivia C.


Learn to swim with an experienced instructor! I have been teaching swim lessons for over 19 years under both the Red Cross and Lifesaving Society programs in public and private pools. I am also a certified Lifesaving Instructor (Bronze levels, First Aid and CPR instructor), National Lifeguard Instructor Trainer, Swim Instructor Trainer, Examiner and Aquatic Supervisor. I am passionate about swimming and love training all ages, from infant to senior, and all skill levels, from no experience being in water to competitive swim training. Whether you are fearful or love the water, I am experienced to get you on your way! My goal is to instill a life-long relationship with the water for swimmers by providing high quality, developmentally sound swimming instruction in a safe and fun environment. When we build confidence in our aquatic skills and establish a secure foundation for water safety and personal fitness, we instill a life-long connection with the water. Lessons are taught using a progression technique, with skills being broken down into simple, small steps and introduced with an element of skill and fun. At the end of the lesson we will recap the feedback provided during the lesson and you will be left with exercises to practice both in and out of the water between lessons for faster learning. You will have access to my expertise between lessons, meaning you can reach out to me when you are practicing. I look forward to swimming with you and helping you meet your swimming goals!
