Swimming is a skill that everyone should have the opportunity to learn in a positive environment, no matter how old you are. Fit To Swim recognizes how beneficial successful lessons are to the child’s self esteem.

After spending 20+ years in the water with hundreds of children of all ages, I have learned how to teach swimming in a fun, easy and rewarding way. Children love to learn from me because I have a unique approach that is direct, structured and consistent, yet caring and loving. Your children will have a positive experience, learn basic water skills, proper form, technique and learn the fundamentals of pool safety.

As a private swim instructor for 20+ years, I have a great understanding of the importance of finding a consistent, direct, trustworthy, educated and structured swimming lesson teacher for your child.

A Chicago native, I moved to Dallas to finish a degree in child psychology and business at Southern Methodist University. I founded this company, Fit To Swim, in 1999 and have worked with thousands of families, teaching beginner, intermediate, and advanced swimmers, ranging in age from 6 months to adults in their 50s. I teach private lessons for all ages, with a specialty of working through a child’s fear of water at any age. In addition I have extensive experience instructing children with special needs. Lessons are tailored specifically to a child’s swimming level, not by age.

I worked at Premier Athletic Club for 10 plus years and have traveled to people’s homes in the Dallas area to teach students in their own environment. I currently teach swim lessons year round at three convenient locations. The environment is perfectly set up to enable children to learn to swim, easily, and effectively. You will be amazed at how quickly your child will learn to swim.

Through my experience teaching all these children to swim, I have gained countless strategies on how to teach your child to swim. Individual lessons are tailored to their personality and learning style. I look forward to working with you and your child to reach our common goal; a happy child in the water!
