When Isabel first came, she was very shy and didn't like to put her face in the water. Now, she swims across the pool with her face in and doing "big arms".

Miss Beth has been my 3 year old daughter Juliet's swim instructor this summer. We have tried over 4 swim instructors with no success. Juliet is a strong willed child who was fearful of the water from past classes that proved traumatic for her.
However, we found our heroine with Miss Beth. Beth's style is loving, kind and firm. With this warm approach, she gained Juliet's trust from the start. Within the first lesson, she taught Juliet how to get out of the pool by pulling herself up with her upper arm strength. I cannot express how much of a relief this has been for me and my husband.

Juliet learned how to swim across the pool in less than five private lessons. After ten classes, she has been able to do coordinated free style by herself and learned the life saving move of transitioning to her backstroke to regain her breath. She has been able to immerse inside of the water to retrieve toys from the bottom of the pool. She has mastered the flotation techniques and can back float freely and confidently. Her kicks are strong and her endurance and lung capacity has increased progressively at every class. We have experienced major RESULTS through her classes - it is not just play in the pool.

Beth's teaching skills are amazing. Furthermore, her personality is always cheerful and encouraging. As the summer progressed, Beth and I became friends and she even gave me some much needed parenting tips for tantrums! She was a joy to me and I am proud to call her a friend. She enjoys her work and makes sure that the kids enjoy it too.

In addition, my 11 year old niece needed some serious brushing up on her swim skills. She had stopped swimming without feeling the need to pinch her nose or use goggles. She was visiting me from Texas and in two short lessons, she mastered all the strokes. In the beginning, she was quite scared of the water but in just two days my niece has told me that swimming is her favorite activity and wishes Miss Beth lived closer. The transformation brought tears to my eyes.

I strongly recommend Miss Beth as your swimming instructor!!!

My experience of over 30 years, keeps me on the leading edge of aquatics and I have developed new and innovative teaching techniques to improve your swimming quickly and efficiently. I believe in using water education to develop water safety and swimming skills, and also to develop self-confidence, self-esteem, and personal excellence. I acknowledge that each child is unique, and direct the instruction towards each child's emotional and developmental abilities. Our goal is to help each child develop self-esteem, confidence, and a love for swimming, while teaching them to become water-safe.
