I can not believe how in six lessons, I’ve gone from being really quite terrified and having no confidence in the water, to thoroughly enjoying learning to swim. Edward is an absolute star and has patience.

Having a first-class swimming tutor makes all the difference. I was a confident swimmer before. I had lessons to improve my stroke and I’m so pleased with the way I now swim. Thank you Edward.
