Hi, my name is Kammeryn. I've been a lifeguard for 3 years now and have done quite a bit of side work teaching swimming. I started at 14 in a volunteer position with kids ages 2-10, then worked my way to becoming a swim coach working with ages 2-18, and then during the year I worked at my local recreation center teaching infants just months old to adults over 18. I swam competitively for 7 years and enjoyed it so much so hopefully I can extend my love of swimming and knowledge to others.

Hello, my name is Tasha and I've been teaching swim lessons for over 5 years with ages 3-13. I love working with children, who may be fearful of the water or jump right in, and teaching them this amazing life saving skill. As a former competitive swimmer I know just how exciting it is to be in the water.

Woodland Hills, CA
Hi, my name is Hannah, and I have been teaching swim lessons for 3 years! I am a kindergarten teacher, and I spend my summers at camp working with children of all abilities, ages 4-18, and have taught swimming in both lakes and pools. I love teaching swimming because when I swim, I feel like I am flying, and would love for you to feel the same way!
Swimming can be scary for first timers, but with patience, game based learning, and knowledge of pool safety, swimming will become second nature!
