  • I teach private lessons to all ages. I also have experience teaching autistic kids.

  • I teach private/small group swim lessons as well. Private pool. Can you add me to your list?

  • Kerry Martin, an elementary school teacher and private swim instructor can be reached at KMswimlessons@aol.com
    She is wonderful and fully certified and taught both my children when little and both swim competitively during the summers.

  • I have a 5 year old granddaughter visiting from June 6 – 14. I would like for her to take private swimming lessons while she is here, everyday M – F, maybe Saturday. Please let me know if an instructor with a private pool or access to a pool will be available during that time.

  • Oakwood University offers swim lessons at their Natatorium. Mon-Thurs for 3 weeks for only $55. Great instructors and you get more bang for your buck!

    • please can yuo help me train my 2 teenagers 15 & 18 years to swim this summer?

    • Agree. The instructors at Oakwood are fantastic. My kids love it and make great progress.

  • Thanks for including kmswimlessons@aol.com on this list. Please update the information. I teach at a private pool. Private small group lessons are available for ages 3 and up. Thank you!

  • How can we get on the list for next summer? I just tried to submit our new group lessons for late summer on your “submit an event” link, but I think I probably botched it. So let me know if I can share that via email for this summer. And please let us know to get on your list for next spring/summer. Thanks!

  • I am looking for a swimming teacher for our almost-4 year old child. Please contact me.

  • Hello,

    I am looking for current up to date information on facilities or private instructors for swimming lessons for an autistic high functioning 7 year old – not afraid to jump in water or get head or ears wet. He loves the water – we are going on a cruise next year and I would love to get him lessons. I can be reached at ajtrob81@hotmail.com

    • Hi Adrienne – I would try calling some of the places listed here to see if they have any instructors that specialize in swimmers with special needs.
