Meet our teachers and coaches


Hi I am Lucinda!

I am a fully qualified swimming teacher and have been teaching since the age of 17. I discovered my passion for teaching swimming at the age of 14 when I assisted in my swimming coaches lessons in London. I decided to become a fully qualified teacher not long after that!

I always love being in the water and have been an enthusiastic swimmer and a good sportswoman for as long as I can remember. Currently I am training for the triathlons in 2019 and hope to have a sports based career in teaching and training as a triathlete.

I plan my lessons to be fun and exciting but also make sure that the students achieve their swimming goals and reach their full potential, I like to pay attention to each section of all the strokes in depth and teach other water based skills to the highest of standards.

Being a keen swimmer I understand the importance of knowing how to swim and that it should be a life necessity. I have experience in teaching children as young as 3 and nervous adults.

My goal as a swimming teacher is to help all students reach their swimming potential.

Children's Lessons Testimonials

"I can recommend Elite Swimming Academy in the strongest possible terms. My son was three and a half when he started his classes with Elite and was very nervous around water following some disastrous swimming lessons at our local leisure centre pool. After only one session with Anthony, he seemed entirely happy in the water. After two sessions, he was claiming that he "loved swimming". After a term, he had become a really confident swimmer. I have nothing but praise for Elite, Ed Williams and Anthony."

"My two children (aged 7 and 3) just started with Elite after waiting for several months for suitable lesson times due to our other commitments and the popularity of the lessons! The classes were worth the wait - I noticed an improvement in their skills from their first lessons! I've recommended Elite to my friend for her 4 year old and she too is delighted! My kids' teachers are really nice, any emails are answered really quickly and the service as a whole is great!"

"Fabulous! I saw clear progress in just one lesson. I am a teacher and could have filmed the lesson for use in professional development! Excellent use of assessment for learning, clear instruction, personalised per participant and clear explanations of how and WHY! Super. We will be booking lessons for Christmas holidays if available."

"I must let you know that although we have only had 5 lessons with you so far, I am more impressed with the progress that Jacob has made in just 5 lessons than he has made in 5 years of our previous swimming lessons! Clear instruction, superb attention to detail and sheer professionalism every step of the way."
