Private lessons are for students whose schedule cannot be matched with the group classes, or for students who want some additional time with an instructor after their group class. We always recommend the group classes, if timing can possibly be worked out, because students learn faster in the group sessions. They have fun celebrating each others little advancements, and learn from each other. Many students seek out private lessons because, in the past, group classes have not moved at the right pace for them, didn't help them to feel safe, or their questions weren't answered. These concerns are fully met in our group classes. Students that have started with private lessons and then moved to group sessions, often say they are surprised at how much fun they have, how much more they learn, and how enriching an experience being with others turns out to be.
Private lessons are minimum of 1 1/2 hours long. There is a talking part at the beginning of each session to make sure that we are meeting your learning goals. Then we head to the pool to apply what was talked about. We go slow enough for you to understand the lesson you are learning and to expand into the next area.
