My four daughters all take lessons with Kristen. The older two (9 and 7), have improved remarkably over the last few months of lessons. Kristen's lessons have fine tuned their swimming styles and given them tips on breathing and kicking to get the most out of their strokes. As well as her lesson, the 9 year old has joined Kristen's Swim Jam class which she loves. This is giving her the opportunity to swim longer distances and fine tune her technique. My 5.5 year old had only had a small number of lessons whilst she was around 4, and wasn't particularly confident in the water or enjoyed swimming. She started lessons with Kristen in September 2013 and within a few weeks was going under the water, whereas she had previously made a huge fuss about putting her face in, was kicking her legs, moving her arms and picking up each component of the lesson quickly and moving on to the next thing to learn.
My 3 year old loves her weekly lesson and has also come along in confidence and ability. It is a amazing to see a three year old that only four weeks earlier was wearing a floatation device in the pool, being able to swim under water, make pizza arms and blow bubbles. I still look at her and think I can't believe she is swimming!!
Kristen's patient and positive approach makes the swimming lessons fun, interesting and challenging. With four girls of different ages and abilities, they are all in classes that suit them perfectly, are all learning new pointers, fine tuning their technique and becoming confident swimmers.
