My husband and I are both secondary school teachers, and are really happy with his teaching techniques and consistency. We love that he has his lesson plan on the side. We also love that he sticks to the rules and cares about health and safety."

    "Alexander (4) says Leonie is the best teacher "because she's taught me to swim and she's really funny". Lara (2 1/2) says she's the best because "I like her". Tom and Mel think she is brilliant with all the kids - taking a real interest in each individual and tailoring exercises to them, never pushing them beyond their comfort zones and making lessons fun for everyone. She's transformed Alexander from a boy who wouldn't go under the water to one who won't stay above it!"

    "Andy's class is the one John is always most excited about. He engages so well with each child and parent and creates an atmosphere that is light hearted fun and educational. John's confidence and respect for the water has grown significantly since starting Andy's classes a few months ago and it's the only class that John (2 yrs) actually focuses on and listens. Thanks for being our favourite teacher Andy!"
