Alexandre
Alexandre Photo Learning to swim under the Swimming Nature programme himself as a child, Alex transitioned to teaching while he attended university. Alex then took post as a site Co-ordinator in Edinburgh before taking on a business support/teaching role in London. Having small class sizes and the support and encouragement of a teacher within the water alongside each student is one of the most valuable aspects of each lesson for Alex. He is able to establish a safe and welcoming environment that allows him to closely assist each student as they develop new skills and correct their technique as quickly and as often as is needed as they progress with each stroke. Likewise this enables him to deliver tailored lessons that focus on each student’s individual requirements, allowing their skills to be continually and confidently developed. Similarly Alexandre places great emphasis on involving the parents in every aspect of their child’s learning experience, allowing them to understand each element of the development process and bring a lifelong love of swimming to the whole family! Alex is a fully qualified swimming teacher and holds the ASA level 2 swimming teaching qualification.
Charlotte
Charlotte Photo Charlotte began to learn to swim at the age of three, quickly progressing to a club by the age of six. She was hand-picked for a squad in her native area of The Wirral and then continuined to compete alongside studying at university. Swimming has always been an important and exciting part of Charlotte’s life – and moving into teaching has only made this more true! Nicknamed ‘the fish’, Charlotte has always aspired to become a swimming teacher. However it is not only in swimming where Charlotte has demonstrated impressive achievements, gaining a degree in Performance from Northumbria University and captaining her university cheerleading squad to the British Cheerleading Association Championships three years running! The small classes and hands-on nature of the teaching are two of the most valuable aspects of the programme for Charlotte, as the children very quickly learn to trust their teacher and as a result the children make clear progress, incentivised further by the badges and stickers!
Demi
Demi Photo Demi is a Level 2 Swimming Teacher with over three years’ experience in teaching. Her career began as a lifeguard at a local girl’s school and since that she went on to teach at a number of well-known independent schools in North London before joining Swimming Nature. Demi has always loved swimming and has transferred her passion for it to teaching others. She particularly likes to teach the Swimming Nature way as it is extremely effective and because the teachers really get to know the pupils.  The method is really different in its innovative approach to swimming and I like the hands-on elements that allow you to correct and support a student on their learning journey. Demi combines her knowledge of swimming with fun sessions in the pool and loves to get the little ones learning to swim the correct strokes from an early age.
Fernando
Fernando Photo As a native of Barcelona, Fernando spent his childhood swimming regularly in the sea and became a confident open water swimmer from an early age. By the age of twelve he was competing in local water skiing and sailing tournaments and still has a whole host of trophies that show the beginning of a lifelong love of the water. Not only content to ski on water, however, Fernando possesses the Alpine Trainee Instructor Certificate from the British Association of Snowsport Instructors and also  finds  time to work as an assistant instructor at his local London Karate Academy! He holds a degree in Sports and Exercise Science and is a  Bachelor of Education for Primary and Middle Years. For Fernando it is the unique ‘hands on’ techniques that Swimming Nature uses that are one of his most valuable teaching tools and considers providing each student with the means of understanding the feel of each correct movement an invaluable asset. Fernando demonstrates flexibility and adaptability when teaching to ensure each lesson is closely tailored experience as well as a fun one!
Ivan
Ivan Photo Swimming since the age of 5 in native Bulgaria, Ivan is a keen swimmer and has participated in many swimming events worldwide. He swam with the Bulgarian National Swimming Team for 3 years and in 2007 became National Champion. In 2011 Ivan qualified as an instructor and began teaching swimming. He enjoys teaching all levels though feels his strength lies in teaching advanced students. Ivan believes in Swimming Nature's long established teaching methods and values lesson organisation and performance evaluations
Katerina
Katerina Photo Katerina is one of our talented Sports Scientists with a degree from the University of Athens and a specialisation in swimming. Her swimming is something to be admired and helped her achieve first place in the National Championships, held in Greece. With over 17 years as a competitive swimmer there is not much Katerina does not know about swimming beautifully. She is delighted to work for Swimming Nature and has really enjoyed the structured learn to swim programmes that we offer. Katerina, can teach and coach children of all ages but she particularly likes to teach the 3-8 year old and see them have fun in their lessons. She is passionate about passing on her knowledge of an exciting and potentially lifesaving skill and uses her enthusiasm to demonstrate that with the right knowledge, experience and encouragement so that everyone can enjoy the water as much as her!
Lamprini
Lamprini Photo One of our talented bilingual teachers – she speaks both English and Greek – Lamprini not only competed as a national level swimmer, but also competed for national teams in shooting, the pentathlon and the modern pentathlon, obtaining a vast array of awards in all four disciplines! With such a wealth of experience behind her Lamprini went on to coach several swimming clubs and gain valuable teaching experience as a P.E teacher in a private school and as a personal trainer. Still leading a healthy and active lifestyle, Lamprini also finds the time to volunteer with her Church to feed the homeless and volunteers with Helping Hands providing support in the community. Lamprini brings this caring and welcoming manner to every lesson and delivers activities that are engaging and encouraging for every student, whether it is their first lesson or their hundredth. She loves teaching in the water to small classes and finds the ability to change a student’s technique as soon as is needed ensures they swim with the correct technique first time, every time!
Luis
Luis Photo Luis was born in Spain and speaks Italian, English and Spanish! He has been a qualified teacher for 4 years obtaining an ASA Level 1. He also has a Physical Education Swimming Degree specializing in Science and Physical Sports. What you might not know about Luis is that he thoroughly enjoys playing basketball, football and tennis.

Richardson
Richardson Photo Richardson has been in the water almost all of his life and he is a passionate teacher and mentor for learning to swim. Having spent a lot of his life in Brazil - he literally grew up on the beach! He enjoys teaching the Swimming Nature method and has tried many others but found this to be the best way of training children to swim from a young age with the correct strokes. He thinks it’s marvellous to have children as young as 4 years old swimming proper from crawl – and he’s right about that! Richardson is full of smiles and positive energy and gets immense satisfaction from teaching children this important life skill. Lessons are fun and interactive with lots of games and splashing!
Sarraounia
Sarraounia Photo Sarraounia, is a Level 2 fully qualified swimming teacher. She is a former club swimmer and previously swam for Chelsea and Westminster Swimming Club. An economics graduate, Sarraounia swam throughout her time there and participated in the team when Birmingham University took the Gold Medal in the finals of the BUCS championship. Sarraounia began swimming at the age of six months and immediately loved the water. Having had swimming lessons she achieved a very good standard of swimming and joined a swimming club. This led to her attending swimming camps and team training – so you will find Sarraounia is an expert at the sport. Swimming throughout her time at university until 2011, she achieved club colours for her outstanding commitment to training and swimming as part of the university team and took on the position of social secretary for the club too. Since leaving, she has spent extensive time in South Africa, where she began to teach swimming. Sarraounia, loves the Swimming Nature tailor made programme which focusses on teaching students to love the water! She has grown up watching swimming Nature teach its programmes in some of the pools she has trained in and she has great respect for the philosophy and approach we have. We are very pleased to have her in the Swimming Nature team.
Vera
Vera Photo Vera is a fully qualifies Level 2 ASA Swimming Teacher. She positively encourages pupils to learn to swim and this impacts on their lives in other ways, as learning to swim is all about having fun and being safe. She shows this by being passionate and caring and making sure pupils are comfortable and focussed when in class. For some years Vera had been a lifeguard and watched the Swimming Nature teachers taking the classes so it’s no surprise that she took to the teaching like a duck to water! Vera is an excellent swimmer and loves demonstrating the techniques to pupils. Ever ready to help them out if they need it but equally happy to let them go and experience the weightless feeling and joy that being buoyant in the water provides. A keen cyclist and runner she enjoys being part of a team of teachers committed to health and fitness.
