Tracie

Director

With over 25 years of teaching swimming I have a huge passion for water safety and teaching. I’m dedicated to creating a positive and fun learning environment for all ages and skill levels.

I’m committed to helping individuals build confidence and achieve their swimming goals through personalised instruction and encouragement.

I still love to see the reward it gives a child when they reach a milestone in the water.

Jean-Michel (JJ)

I am a passionate and experienced swimming instructor with 20 years of expertise. I have a patient and engaging approach that ensures that swimmers of all ages and skill levels feel comfortable in the water.

With a focus on water safety and stroke technique, I look to empower individuals to become confident swimmers.

Instructor

Astley Cooper School, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire

I have worked in leisure since leaving school at 16 years old, I have always been involved in and around the water throughout my career and have been a swimming instructor since 2017.

I have lots of experience in teaching a wide range of ages and abilities. Teaching is super rewarding because I get to meet new people and adapt my teaching style depending on the learners needs, helping them achieve thier goals.

Becky

Instructor

Everlast Fitness Gym, Colchester, Essex

On leaving school I used my hobby of running and swimming to enter the world of fitness with my first qualification as a lifeguard.

I have now been a swimming instructor and lifeguard for over 18 years, and have now included teaching babies and disabilities to my qualifications.

I love teaching for Swim-With-Me because they have the interests of the swimmers at heart. It is as important to them as is it to me to ensure we keep everyone safe in water.

Instructor

Everlast Fitness Gym, Colchester, Essex

I have been a pool lifeguard since 2016 and qualified as an American Beach Lifeguard in 2019. My passion for leisure in water then took me into swimming teaching as of 2023 and it has brought me so much fulfillment to be able to help swimmers in their journeys.

Swim with Me is an excellent place to swim and I feel very lucky to be a part of such an incredible team.

I’ve been teaching for over 20 years now and still love teaching every lesson because it is different, every age needs different skills and its great to see them always developing.
It’s so rewarding to think that you’ve helped an individual gain skills, strokes and importantly safety in swimming.

I love my job!

Hannah

Instructor

Sylvestrian Leisure Centre, Snaresbrook, London

I struggled to learn how to swim when I was younger so had lessons and once I had learned, I found a passion to want to teach others.

Working in an office during the week, I relax by teaching at the weekends and could not be luckier.

Seeing the faces of swimmers when they have achieve a new skill – I love sharing that moment with them.
