Now that I’m back from vacation, I can properly thank you for teaching me how to swim. You are an awesome instructor!! You helped me get over my fear of not being able to touch the bottom. I never thought I could jump into the deep end of a pool and recover. Thanks to you, not only can I recover, but I can now tread water, do a breast stroke, perform a flutter kick, float from front to back, dog paddle and more. And in only four lessons! My husband cannot believe that I went from being a rock, to someone who actually looks comfortable in the water. He was impressed! I had private lessons in the past from four different instructors and none of them accomplished what you did. John, you truly have a gift and thank you for sharing it.
