Meet our teachers and coaches

Marguerite

Hello, my name is Marguerite.

I am passionate about swimming and about teaching people to swim.  I learned to swim in my teens and as a late starter to swimming, I understand the difficulties of learning swimming techniques. I get great satisfaction from watching my students progressively grow in confidence in the water as they develop their swim strokes and aquatic skills throughout the term.

Since I started teaching I have worked with children and adults of all ages and abilities. I adopt a friendly and enthusiastic teaching style. I want my students to learn and develop their swimming in my class, but I also want them to have fun in the process.  Water safety is paramount, and I make sure my students are aware of how to behave around water to ensure their safety.

I come from a science background, so I love learning about the science of swimming.  I enjoy keeping up to date on new swimming techniques and swimming knowledge to help me improve my teaching skills and my swimming style.

I am also a mum, so I am very aware of how each child has a unique way of learning and understanding and how we all learn at different paces.

I look forward to meeting you!

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."
