Private Swim Lessons in Burlington , MA

Driving kids all over Burlington 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 Burlington! 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 Burlington 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 Burlington. 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 Burlington swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Burlington

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 Burlington 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 Burlington 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!

Our Sunsational instructors will work with you at your favorite pool in Burlington, whether it's down the street or just outside your back door.

Sunsational matched my four boys with James, one of the most fantastic swim instructors they've had! He's always encouraging, both to support my youngest's introduction to the water, and to push my older boys to try harder and swim faster. My oldest three are on the local swim team now and consistently snag first or second finishes, and I attribute that to James' teaching style -- he gently recommended that I put all three boys in the pool with him, and he was right because they worked harder together than alone. Thank you James!
TJ, aka Mr Walrus, is great at teaching the little one how to swim. We had him come in every day during a staycation. Both 4-year-olds learned to swim enough to get across the pool on their own. The convenience of swim lessons in your home is amazing and the continuity of the lesson every day makes learning much quicker. If you don't have a pool, find a neighbor with one!
I could not have been happier with our experience with Sunsational Swim and our instructor TJ (Thomas J). I wanted to kick-start my son's swimming with a series of classes over our week vacation with a focus on comfort in being underwater and getting his face wet. After a couple of lessons all my son wanted was to be in the pool, well under it, and to quote "Mummy, I don't like the top of the water anymore!". Patience, professional and experienced, TJ was a wonderful instructor who clearly has a lot of preschoolers under his belt. He was timely, responsive and I signed up for another set of lessons already!
Savannah is the BEST! Two of my kids, ages 2 and 4, are enrolled in swim lessons with Sunsational. Savannah is their amazing instructor, and we could not be happier! She developed a great relationship with the kids in a very short amount of time, gaining their trust and diminishing their fears of the water. In 4 weeks, my son (4) is almost able to swim on his own and my daughter (2), who has historically been terrified of the water, is swimming with decreasing assistance and is developing a love for the water! Not only are they learning how to swim, but (most importantly, in my opinion) they are learning important safety skills to keep them protected when they are around water. They are around so many pools, oceans, lakes, etc in the summer that these skills will prove to be invaluable. Savannah is always on time for lessons and flexible with scheduling. She doesn't "take the easy way out" when it comes to the programming of each specific lesson, but seamlessly personalizes each lesson for both children based on their individual strengths, weaknesses and styles of learning.

Sunsational Swim School has been great for our daughter! Savannah is our swim instructor and she's been awesome. My daughter barely wanted to put her head under the water and now she is swimming the length of the pool, learning to tread water, floating on her back and I feel much better about her ability to swim on the side of the pool if she were to ever fall in. She also loves seeing Savannah twice a week. She has so much fun and looks forward to lessons. Savannah's flexibility has also been a life saver for our crazy summer schedule. We're so glad we found Sunsational and would recommend it to anyone!
I had a great experience with sunsational for my 6 year old son. His instructor Jeremy was able to take my son from being afraid of the water to doing the front crawl, back stroke, and breast stoke in seven sessions. My son has not mastered these as yet and still need some more sesssions to perfect the strokes, but it was amazing to see what Jeremy was able to do on seven sessions.

Great experience with Jeremy. Exceptional instructor.
Annie has her work cut out for her with my too soon to be 3-year-old. Annie has managed to teach my daughter many things that usually are taught to older children. Annie had amazing patience for my daughter constantly trying to change the program if you will. I give her a lot of credit. Annie is constantly updating me on her progress and what my expectations should be as well as what we should work on. Annie always goes with the flow and helps me to keep my daughter focused. She is very nice and my daughter loves her.
There is nothing better than making breakfast in your pajamas and sending your kids outside for their swim lesson in your own pool. Our instructor Sydney is phenomenal, and provides gentle and age appropriate instruction for our 4 and almost 7 year old. I only wish I had found this swim school sooner!
We have had a great experience with swim lessons for two summers now. Booking lessons is easy and the convenience of lessons in your own home can not be beat. Our teacher this summer, Emma, was great and our three kids all improved their swimming skills (7, 5, 3 years old). My only constructive comment would be to communicate with Sunsational beforehand regarding how long you want your lessons to go (eg though the whole summer or just a month, etc) so they can match you with an instructor that will work for your time frame. "Adding as you go" may not work as every instructor is not necessarily doing lessons all summer.
