Private Swim Lessons in Boston , MA

Whether your family plays in the ocean during the summer or enjoys a “stay-cation” during the winter at Great Wolf Lodge, it’s always the right time of year for swim lessons in Boston! At Sunsational Swim School, we use a progressive, encouraging approach with private, one-on-one classes, working with each learner to acquire the necessary skills for safety in and around the water. Especially with our youngest swimmers, our swimming lessons in Boston begin with the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”, which consists of learning how to turn around and swim to the wall if they do fall in the pool.

Sunsational Swim teachers are available throughout the greater Boston area—from Chelsea to Wellesley!—which saves you the hassle and time you’re used to enduring in order to get to a group swim lesson. Are you tired of wondering if your kids will ever learn to swim, watching them doing nothing in a crowded class while the instructor works with other students? With Sunsational Swim, you will see progress in a matter of weeks—from the comfort of your backyard pool or favorite community pool.

We’re so confident that our lessons will help your child rapidly improve their water safety skills that we provide an exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for swimmers 3 and up: your child will swim to the wall without help (after a simulated fall into the pool) by the 12th lesson. If not, we’ll give you up to four extra lessons—at no cost to you—to help them master the process!

Also, if someone in your family hopes to race in the Boston Triathlon or even to work as a summer lifeguard at Revere Beach, Sunsational Swim School can match them with an instructor that will help refine their stroke techniques and make progress towards their goals: our lessons are for everyone!

Hi! My name is Andrew, but all of my friends and family call me A.J. I have been a swimming instructor since I was in eighth grade - that means I have been teaching for nine years! Also, I have been a competitive swimmer since I was six years old. I broke eight school records at my high school and went on to swim in college at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I have lots of experience working with and teaching children through my time as both a swimming instructor and an academic tutor. Teaching others something I am passionate about makes me feel fulfilled. I would love to be given the opportunity to pass on my knowledge to you or your children.

Hi, my name is Louisa. I'm currently a student at Northeastern University studying engineering. I taught group swim lessons and private lessons for the YMCA for one year, as well as private lessons at a community pool for one summer. I've worked with children ages 2-12 and teen classes for beginners and advanced swimmers. I love teaching swim lessons because I love having fun in the water and incorporating games into technique learning and stamina building.
