Meet our teachers and coaches
My name is Sina – I love teaching anything relating to water sports, such as Wakeboarding, Scuba diving and Swimming!
I am a Master Scuba Diver Trainer, having taught for the past 15 years teaching young children, all the way up to adults. I have managed dive centres all around the world, eventually setting up my own 5-star dive centre in Thailand.
I have a lot of passion and energy in teaching people to swim correctly and efficiently, making the lessons Fun and Safe, and watching the progression and developments your child makes is always such a joy. I have two beautiful children myself, so I can and relate to the fact that every child has a unique way of learning and understanding.
I look forward to meeting you all!
“Sina is a fun and energetic teacher and has shown incredible patience with my 5 year old. On her very first lesson with him, she responded to his instruction with confidence and enthusiasm!”
– K. Morton
“Our children have been having some productive sessions with Sina on Friday evenings. In just a short time, we’ve seen a real difference in their comfort and ability in the water. We are very pleased!”
– E. Consolatore
“My daughter has made tremendous progress and gained a lot of confidence since Sina started teaching her.
He puts a great emphasis on technique, gives very clear explanations, demonstrates what he means and praises children a lot.
I really appreciate the fact that he gives feedback and advice to parents in a friendly way.”
– L. Edwards
“I would like to express my appreciation for the professional teaching technique and fair discipline shown by Sina.
I’m really impressed with him, we’ve had good discussions about our son’s progress and I find Sina very approachable to speak with.”
– C. Tough
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."
