“Vicki is an excellent swim teacher.  She taught both our 6 and 5-year-old to swim last summer.  She has a very nurturing and comforting style which enabled our children to trust her from the beginning.  She is very knowledgeable about swimming as well as very experienced with children.  We have recommended her to several of our friends.”

“My husband and I were really very impressed watching you during the two lessons you gave our son, Stani, in Long Island this summer. we learned quite a bit from you too! The technique with which you encouraged a somewhat reticent three-year-old into the water, and then proceeded to teach him the basics of swimming without compromising on the aspect of “fun” was uplifting and inspiring to watch as a mother. Stani’s attitude to the water and swimming has changed from one of curiosity, combined with a little too much fear, to eagerness and enjoyment (with a healthy dose of respect!). All this in two short lessons! Thank you. Wishing you all the best from Vienna, Austria.”

“Vicki is far and away the best swim instructor my children have had.  She knows how to motivate each child, no matter what their personality and age of development.  She has high standards and a firm hand but somehow manages to make each lesson fun.  My children look forward to their swimming lesson with Vicki every week.  She has taken them from not knowing how to swim at all, to learning all of the key strokes and, now, refining their technique for each.  I highly recommend her for swimmers of all abilities and attitudes towards swimming.”
