Meet our teachers and coaches

Kamila

I competed in swimming at a National level for 15 years. Then naturally I became lifeguard, scuba diver and finally a swim teacher. Following my passion and my empathy toward people and nature, I studied oceanography and conservation. I find a lot of enjoyment and passion in teaching and have been a coach for 8 years.

When teaching I am using a holistic approach based on Hallwick Concept and WATSU Aquatheraphy. I am a certified therapist for both of the methods.

You can view my website for more information on WATSU and Aquatic Bodywork services that I offer: http://kamaqua.uk/

I cover all aspects of swimmer development: physical, psychological, and social. I am able to create a safe and enjoyable environment for everybody. My class is a good place for development of specific areas such as coordination, stamina, respiratory system and sensory integration. Children with difficulties are warmly welcome. My strong advantage is a quick implementation of the most effective methods according to pupils abilities and levels. When I teach children I always try and work with their imagination, telling a story and playing games, which are actually all the proper exercises and skills but made with much more fun!

I also love teaching adults. Besides elementary teaching I am able to create workouts for my swimmers based on abilities, analysing strokes and technique.

Kamila's Testimonials

“We are amazed by Kamila’s expertise… The children cannot wait for their next lesson tomorrow… Kamila’s approach is simply perfect and the fact that the children have begun to swim independently is a reflection on her excellent teaching and her wonderful (calm and kind) attitude.”

– Manja K.

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!" 
E Watson

"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."
