About Brian

For the past 27 years, I have successfully taught thousands of students from 18 months to 70 years old the life skill of swimming. I provide a straightforward, no-nonsense approach that time and time again provides a 100% success ratio, regardless of age.

I use a method that has been perfected by my mentor, Tom. Since 1957, Tom has taught over 93,000 students around the world the life skill of swimming.

When not teaching, I spend my time combining my passions for travel and triathlon. I have had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places around the world, and at times, even race at these locations.

Testimonials

Brian, as usual, you have worked your magic. Thanks so much and see you next summer. – Jackie F.

I am so impressed with your teaching method, the kids really enjoyed being in the water and your method is so effective I could hardly believe my eyes. I would love to do a refresher course with both kids for the next couple of summers. Thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication to what you do. – JP.

Hi Brian. Just a note to tell you once again how utterly amazing our experience was with your swim class. You have such a way with the kids and made the whole thing so fun to watch. We look forward to continuing with you next summer. – Leslie L.
