disabled senior citizen. Edward immediately put me at ease. He was
constantly encouraging and showed infinite patience, demonstrating
techniques when necessary. I enjoyed my lessons and am grateful to
Edward for kindly teaching me a new skill. I have no hesitation in
recommending Edward as a teacher to any age group.
I decided to train for my first triathlon. After one painful pool session spent gasping for air, I found Edward’s website and immediately reached out for help. I was looking for a local coach who could teach me how to swim functionally, fit for open water and for completing other endurance activities back-to-back afterwards. Within a few lessons, I have gone from having no knowledge or experience of how to ‘front crawl’ and being nervous of how to get my breath, to swimming multiple pool lengths confidently and effortlessly. Edward is a patient and calm tutor, with seemingless endless ideas and tips to help each student succeed. I embarked on my triathlon journey being terrified of the swim, and now I think it will be my strongest activity.
The positive recommendation for us to try Swim For Life was not misplaced. We could not possibly have had a better experience. Edward’s patience, excellent communication and interpersonal skills as well as his knowledge, experience and teaching ability all made for a brilliant time. The Alexander technique has not only greatly improved our swimming but also given us much more confidence and therefore enjoyment. We are both hugely grateful and could not commend the whole experience highly enough.
Swimforliife has changed my life. I have learnt a new skill in a very relaxed and unthreatening environment with a very calm and patient teacher. Edward really listens to what you want and tries to understand how you thinks in order to tailor his teaching method accordingly. I can unreservedly recommend learning to swim with Swimforlife. You will wonder why you didn’t do it ages ago!
