Private Swim Lessons in Barrington , IL

Driving kids all over Barrington for swim lessons can be aggravating: between struggling to get through traffic to get there on time and classes scheduled at the least convenient possible time, maybe you've asked yourself 'Is it worth it?'

The good news? There's a better, faster, less stressful way to help everyone in your family be more confident in the water: private swimming lessons with a Sunsational Swim instructor in Barrington! When you choose us as your swim school, we bring personalized lessons to your club, community pool, or even your own backyard.

Everyone knows that kids learn better when they have one-on-one attention, so it's no surprise if you haven't been impressed by the results from your child's crowded group lessons at the public pool. And, if you are a reluctant adult that's finally brave enough to learn to swim, it's much less nerve-wracking to give it a try for the first time in the comfort and privacy of your Barrington home—not next to a class of infants and toddlers who seem ready to compete in the Olympics!

From start to finish, we make learning to swim convenient, cost-effective, and confidence-building. To get started, enter your zip code and answer a few brief registration questions, and we'll match you with a top-notch swim teacher who will come to you: any time of day, anywhere in Barrington. From early-morning sessions to prepare for a military swim test, to weekday afternoons after school to work on stroke technique for a swim team tryout, there's no schedule that our Sunsational instructors can't accommodate.

Does it sound too good to be true? It's not—and because we're so sure we'll deliver the results you want, you can take advantage of our Sunsational Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids 3 and up), if your swimmer is still unable to turn around and reach the wall after our twelve-lesson package. Why not sign up for Barrington swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Barrington

Our Focus: Water Safety

Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee emphasizes each student's ability to turn around and swim back to the wall after an unintentional fall into the pool. Swimmers throughout Barrington have learned to be safer in their own backyards with Sunsational's private swimming lessons, learning these critical skills in the comfort of home swimming pools.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Private swim lessons scheduled at the time that works best for YOU are the ultimate in stress-free swimming in the greater Barrington area. Whether you have multiple kids that you want to schedule back-to-back or an adult in the family that needs lessons on their lunch break, our instructors can accommodate your calendar!

Individualized Lesson Planning

We understand that every swimmer brings a different set of skills and challenges to the water, so our personalized lessons help each student to conquer their fears and make real progress in their water safety skills. Not only do our infant and toddler classes help even the youngest swimmers to be able to turn around and get to the side of the pool, but our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids ages 3 and up) provides up to four extra lessons at no charge if your swimmer hasn't mastered our “Sunsational Swim Sequence” by the 12th class.

Which Pool? You Decide!

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
Lorena is amazing with our 4-year-old. She has taught her how to swim and survive in just a few short weeks. She has been super flexible and accommodating with scheduling sessions. I am impressed by how she has taken a girl who was timid and apprehensive in the water to a water-loving mermaid. Our daughter calls Lorena her best friend. I highly recommend Lorena for your personal swim instructor!!
We could not be more pleased with Sunsational and our swim instructor, Debarati. From the very first lesson, my husband and I could see a noticeable difference in both our 5 and 3-year-olds demeanor towards swimming and getting their face wet. Both of our children could not swim in the beginning but within a few lessons, our 5-year-old was starting to swim on his own with supervision, happily dunking his head underwater and very excited about his progress. Our 3-year-old was extremely fearful of getting her face wet but Debarati was kind and patient but gave a gentle push and helped to give our daughter confidence in her abilities. Debarati was exceptional-professional, punctual, kind and we all really enjoyed working with her this summer!
Debarati was such a wonderful instructor for our 5 and 3 year old! We have had months of swim classes at another swim school with very little progress and within the first class, both kids were dipping their faces under water! By the end of our 12 lessons, our 5 year old is swimming independently and our 3 year old has greatly improved, as well. We all loved working with Debarati and would definitely recommend her and Sunsational!
Sam has been an incredibly patient and kind swim instructor for my 10-month-old boy. He's been eased into all the new lessons and really enjoys his time in the pool! I couldn't have asked for a better swim instructor!
Nick has been very nice , professional and clever in teaching our 5 years old child Leonardo how to swim.
Eder, our instructor, is excellent. He makes it fun for our son and he doesn't even realize he is learning. Definitely a great person to have teaching our son a skill he will use for his entire life.
I would recommend Adaora to anyone who are looking for a swimming instructor. She always makes swimming lessons fun and easy. My children can swim after getting only a few lessons!
