I start swimming as young as 4 years old, I could jump off the high diving board at our swimming club. I didn’t join any swimming clubs as my dad was my best teacher.
I excelled well at interschool competitions earning me dozens of trophies, medals, and certificates. I was selected to represent our country Kenya in an international competition that was held in South Africa.
I am a very friendly and patient person. My always smiling nature is highly appreciated among friends and relatives. From young children to old people, I can deal with them all due to my high patience level.
My highest swimming achievement is representing my country, Kenya in an international competition in South Africa.
Swimming has always been my passion and I have taken up many competitions back in school. Teaching swimming gives me the hope and pride that the individual I teach may also participate in competitions in the future

I choose to become a Swimming Nature teacher because I believes strongly in their programme and methodology: swimming is a simple sport and teaching it by putting children's needs first is the best way to do it, without forgetting how important it is to teach the right technique and movement from the very beginning.

I have been swimming since 4 years old and he loves swimming, I have been working professionally as a swimming teacher for the past 2 years.
I was born close to the beach which makes me feel in love with that and doing any water activities around it. I started swimming when I was 4 because I had Scoliosis, few months later all problems on my back were gone, and makes me feel that I found an enjoyable and funny sport.
I have always been working around water, as a beach and pool lifeguard and in the last years as a swimming instructor, actually, I do love it! Looking forward to which is going to be the next challenge!
I like teaching all range of ages but I do enjoy teaching high levels!
The methodology used, the progression, the high-level standards of swimming knowledge, also, the hands-on method make the students learn so quickly!
I am glad to have joined a team who has the same passions as me and bring swimming knowledge to whoever wants to learn!

Since I was young I have loved water, swimming, or just relaxing in it, and for a long time, I used it as a way to relax. When I was in high school, I participated in a lot of swimming competitions, and it was one of the best moments of my life. As soon as I start looking for a job, I looked for ways to help or assist others, already working as a waiter and a construction assistant, and then I discover about Swimming Nature and the different ways that they teach swimming, and get amazed with it, I started to teach, and want to keep teaching and learning more.
I like that Swimming Nature tries to focus on improving each learner in a way that they can have all the support from their teacher, assisting in everything.
I like teaching older children when they are new to swimming and helping them lose their fear of it. I'd like to have learners with special needs because I need to approach them in different ways and can give all my attention to them.
With Swimming Nature, I can improve my abilities in teaching, and learn a new way of doing it. Also to learn a lot about swimming that I never knew before.
Thais grew up in Brazil so she has had lots of exposure to swimming and started swimming in a swimming club from the age of twelve. She qualified as a Swimming Teacher in London and like all our teachers is a qualified Lifeguard. In Brazil, Thais studied pedagogy, which is very much a part of the Swimming Nature method and she took to our teaching programmes like a “duck to water’! She is excellent with children and especially gentle for the introductory levels of Frog, Seal and Crab level. Thais loves using the Swimming Nature method and finds it to be a fully developed programme with clear and definite targets for the pupils and she loves that the children get rewarded with badges for doing well! With a natural love of teaching children and a big smile Thais is bound to have your little one excited about coming to their weekly swimming lessons.
I have been swimming for most of my life! I found my love for swimming in my early teens where I discovered my passion for the water, particularly butterfly stroke. I was the fastest 50-metre butterfly swimmer in the UK at the age of 16.
I am friendly, patient and enthusiastic about facilitating people of all ages to gain swimming skills, however, I feel strongly about enabling younger swimmers with disabilities to become confident in the water and find their own love for swimming.
I am passionate about fitness, reflective in my education pathway in sports science. I am excited to be working with Swimming Nature as their approach to teaching swimming is unique, encouraging a happy lifelong relationship with water.
