Hi, I’m Samantha!

I am passionate about helping people of all ages achieve their goals and what better way to help someone, than by teaching them a fundamental life skill such as swimming.

As a mother of two young children, I am very patient and understand first hand the importance of making lessons fun and engaging with lots of individual feedback and praise.

I gain a real personal reward from seeing the progress being made and knowing that this skill will last them forever!

“My five year old daughter took a five day holiday crash course with Jon  – it was her first experience of swimming lessons – and she enjoyed it enormously.

Jon’s calm instruction and the small class size gave her a lot of confidence in the water, and she is now excited to try out the weekly classes.

We’ve been very impressed so far with Elite Swimming Academy’s organization and instruction, and we look forward to watching our kids learn to swim through their expert guidance!”

Just a short note to thank you at this, the end of our grandson’s second term, with Jon at Barrow swimming pool.

Two weeks ago, our grandson achieved his 5m swimming certificate; he will not be three until the middle of September this year. We are so proud and pleased and just wanted to thank Elite, and especially Jon, for the amazing way our grandson has been taught to swim at a relatively young age and in such a short time.

He was already very happy and confident in the water and in particular, swimming under water but Jon has taken him to a new level.

So Jon, many thanks for your patience and also discipline in the lessons and see you in September!
