I have taught babies from 6 months right up to a lady of 85 years old. Do you need any advice regarding swimming? maybe your child or yourself need help! I will try to answer any questions or queries that you might have.

Sorry but I had to laugh when I started imagine someone learning to swim online. Well, if you can surf online then why not swim too? I might have had some questions a few weeks ago for my son but I got him a couple of private lessons and he learned what he was doing wrong. It's very important for everyone to learn how to swim, no matter where they live. I'm very surprised that swimming lessons aren't mandatory in schools in so many countries and how many adults don't know how to swim. Even tough you don't live by a lake or an ocean now, you never know where you will be in the future. If you can't swim, take some lessons, it could safe your life and you could also safe someone elses life.

There are so many frightened adults out there because when they were young pushing them in at the deep end was a fad. A person pushed into deep water will always have a fear but with time can build their confidence back up. A good instructor helps, one that thas lots of patience and can listen and understand your fears. I think schools now have to take children swimming as part of the curriculum but not before time ey?!Private lessons are good for confidence too a little expensive but well worth the money, as you say it can save a life.
