What Parents Are Saying


Tessa is truly a miracle worker!

“Tessa is truly a miracle worker! In a matter of only 4 lessons my sons are now not only comfortable in the water, but love to swim and look forward to going to their lessons with Tessa. We've struggled for years with other programs & teachers to get my 7 y/o swimming and have had no success; now he's thriving under Tessa's instruction. And my 4 y/o is quite busy, and has an incredibly difficult time focusing, but Tessa knew from the moment she started class exactly how to get through to him and he's made far more progress than I could've ever hoped. We're amazed by her teaching abilities and so grateful for Tessa!" Andrea M.

Tessa is the most patient...

”Tessa is the most patient, kind, flexible, thorough, and knowledgeable swim instructor you can ask for. I enrolled my son in private lessons when he was 14 months old and he has excelled in the 3 months he has been a student. Tessa was extremely patient during times when my son wasn't quite cooperating (translation: screaming his head off) and was very quick to find another way to teach her lessons in an engaging and relaxing and fun manner. She is very adaptable to my child's interests during class and doesn't force certain things that he may not be interested in at the moment. She has plenty of teaching tools and my son loves her songs.” E.D.

Tessa is an amazing teacher...

“Tessa is an amazing teacher. She is very patient and really good at motivating her students. We couldn't be happier. We brought our 2 and 4 year old in January. Our 2 year old is now swimming at preschool level and our now 5 year old is swimming level 3. We couldn't be happier.” Angelina P.

I'm impressed...

“After only 7 lessons, my daughter has learned how to dive down for objects, float for a short time on her back, "monkey crawl" on the edge of the pool, water safety, and is working on swimming! Tessa is one of the most calming, caring swim instructors I have seen. She's very patient with my 2-year-old. My daughter asks to go to swim school almost every day. I'm impressed that she not only works on swim instruction through fun water games etc., but Tessa also covers all the basics of water safety at a level my daughter can understand.” Anna M.

Would recommend highly...

“Tessa is super patient with my stubborn 5 year old. He has made so much progress here. Would recommend highly.” Tim S.
