Américo

Hi!

My name is Américo and I have been a graduate in Physical Education and Sports since 2000. My experience in the area of education is diversified since I have given classes as a Physical Education Teacher in Schools, aquatic gym classes, gymnasiums such as Personal Training, Senior’s geriatric gymnastics, as a volunteer to teach reading and writing …

In swimming I have over twenty years of experience. Personalized classes, classes to groups, with different age groups (Babies to Adults) as well as in different levels of learning.
Working in different countries with different cultures like Portugal, England and Malta allowed me to have international experience.
Education, Professionalism, Requirement and Adaptation to the Individual Needs of all my Students are characteristics that I always try to fulfill in order to obtain success in this professional activity.
To teach is to transmit values and a taste for the activity you teach.

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."
Nikki Gabb

"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."
