I’ve been involved with swimming and diving for my whole childhood and teenage years, practicing during the week and racing on the weekends. Funnily enough my first job back home was a swimming assistant for children aged 4 to 6, I remembered loving it and getting goosebumps when the children mastered a skill or overcame a fear by themselves.
Moving to London, I moved away from teaching for a few years, however my heart still belonged to swimming and while at university doing a BSc in Human Nutrition, I started teaching again – and nutrition nowadays is more of a hobby. What I love about being a swimming teacher is seeing the excitement of my clients to get in the water, see their confidence grow and how proud they are after mastering a skill is absolutely priceless. My aim is not only to get the young students safe, confident and skilled in the water, but to have fond memories of the experience, too.
As a swimming teacher I was lucky enough to teach in 4 different countries, Brazil, the UK, Australia and Germany, working for top companies with some of the best professionals. I’m proud that I am a consultant on baby and toddlers swimming classes and respected among the swimming community around London and Sydney, conducting training and creating baby & toddler swimming programs.
I am very proud to bring this experience, passion and drive to SwimStars.London and make swimming a fulfilling and memorable experience.
