Can not say enough good about Annie and this program! My daughter LOVES her lessons with Annie and has made so much progress. Annie is respectful, professional, and kind to the parents and more importantly the kids. She treats every child with a great amount of care and respect.

My son has had other swim instructors before Annie but didn't make the same kind of progress he has with her. She works magic when working with kids and knows how much to gently push each child while taking into consideration their personality.

She obviously loves working...more

Annie is amazing! She has taken my daughter from being scared of underwater to always wanting to be underwater. She is fantastic at gaining their trust and helping them excel. She teaches children in a group but teaches each individual child to where they are, and brings them by leaps and bounds to their full potential. Highly recommend.

Annie is definitely one of the most enthusiastic and conscientious instructors we've ever met...in ANY venue. She's attentive to the needs of each child, seems to have boundless energy and imparts a true love of aquatics that is infectious. Our 4 year old just loves swimming- with Annie, and with us and that's made this summer one of our best ever. I wonder if Annie teaches skiing??? :^)

My children came away from the 4 days of lessons feeling confident and no longer wearing swimming vests.

Annie has a special way of making young children feel comfortable with her. From the very timid swimmer (my son), to the enthusiastic dare devil (my daughter), Annie is able to connect with kids and support them right where they are in their swimming ability. I recommend Annie to any parent looking for a great swim instructor!
