Robert's Bio

A little about myself
I have a strong background in swimming. I am both CPR and first aid certified. I started teaching swim lessons 12 years ago, and have worked for organizations such as the Creekside Cabana Club, East Side Union High School District, and the Santa Clara Swim Club. Over the years, I've worked with thousands of swimmers with a wide range of age and ability, including children with learning disabilities and handicaps such as ADHD or Autism. I also swam competitively for 13 years straight.

My personal pedagogy is to teach swimmers techniques which will create a strong foundation for future goals, while simultaneously providing the swimmer with skills they can utilize today. I emphasize kicks over arms, and prefer to perfect the utilitarian strokes of freestyle and backstroke before approaching the competitive-oriented strokes of breaststroke and butterfly.
