Beginner adult program
Dan is a great instructor! I took private adult swim lessons with him and he was very patient. Dan understood where I was coming from since I did not know how to swim at all. I did not have a private pool in my building so I took my classes at the public pool.

Dan is the best! I've always been deeply afraid of deep water. I found Dan in my google search when I decided to try to get over my fear. Dan is very experienced and was very patient with me. He taught me the proper way to swim, teaching me various techniques and helped me get more comfortable in the water. He also explains things well which was very helpful. While my fear is not completely cured, in the last class I was able to jump into the deep end, something I had never done before in my life. I have gotten much more comfortable in the water and am excited to continue working on this. Dan is very friendly and personable. I really can't recommend him enough!

It's my first time taking beginner private swim lessons with Dan. Being in my mid 30s and holding a crutch for so long never learning to swim, I figured that it was time to break the streak because I really enjoy being in water with solitude. I was nervous and doubtful about not getting the best learning experiences before having the first lesson. My internal doubts after the first lesson with Dan were gone. I am truly grateful for Dan's patience, encouragement, and also providing some psychological counsel of being comfortable in water which is what I really needed. Dan really helped me to embrace the learning process and not be overly perfect and overthink in executing fundamentals. I really believe that Dan does very well in listening to the student's swim needs and having a productive dialogue to progress in a realistic manner. I look forward to taking lessons again with you in the future. Thank you Dan for sharing your passions of swimming through teaching!

Dan has been an incredible instructor. He is positive, calm, supportive, patient, and encouraging. He was always on time and flexible with his schedule when needed. He will explain the different techniques in detail and adjust them based on your level of experience and injuries. You can tell he is dedicated to the sport, and it isn't just about a paycheck for him. I highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to learn how to swim or improve their swimming.

Had a great time under Dan's guide. He is super patient and a great guy. We had 3 people in our class and we were all able to progress far after just one session. I would 100% suggest him to anyone trying to enjoy all the fun things swimming bring along with it.

Dan is really great and knows what he's doing.. I had no idea how to swim and an adult learning to swim isn't easy.. he is patient and gives very clear instructions and after six classes I can say I can swim.. I highly recommend
Adam Howard
Beginner adult program
Dan is incredibly patient and supportive. I literally could do nothing in a pool and I'm nearly 40 years old. Dan helped me overcome a lot of my fears and I have vastly improved. Highly recommended!
Beginner adult program
I had a lot of fun during my classes with Dan! He's a great teacher and quickly helps you to improve. I learned skills in one lesson that I just could not get right before. It's often just a small, perhaps overlooked detail, which he pinpoints and helps you to adjust👍. He's encouraging and funny, and will tailor his guidance to your pace and level. Thanks Dan, I'm ready for all the fun water sports now!;) 🙌

I really enjoy learning swimming with Dany, he always pushes me which I need. I like how he gives me direction, and shows me examples of what to do. We also have good conversation throughout the class, which helps me to relax and recovery my breath it doesn't make the session so stressful. I recommend him 100%
