Daughter's evaluation: The swimming classes are really fun. The teacher is funny and always plays games. You can learn a lot even if you don't really listen. If you don't listen he won't get angry because he is really nice but if you keep moaning you're tired and stuff for a long time he eventually will get a little bit angry. Grade: 9.0
Mom's evaluation: We discovered Prince's swimming classes about
three years ago when my daughter was just 6 years old. She's now nearly
ten and still continues to go to his classes and is getting to the last
certificate level. She has learned to be a confident swimmer and has
Prince has a lot of patience with each and every one of his students, which works wonders on building confidence in the pool. My daughter at times gets nervous to do a rolly polly or dive for the first time, but by the end of the class she's well on her way to learning the correct technique.
I have gone through so many different types of classes with my daughter from ballet to tennis and she often gives up after several months, however she never gave up going to Prince's class and always looks forward to go swimming. I've even seen little children going to class for the very first time clinging to their parent's legs thinking there is no way that child will get in the water. But, nonetheless, 10 minutes later Prince has them on the first step of the pool splashing their feet and by the end of the class the child who was kicking and screaming with terror is later kicking and screaming with delight inside the pool.
Prince has an amazing way with children and knows how to get down to their level and make swimming fun. He has kept the interest of my daughter for the last three years and that says a lot. I always appreciate that he keeps his classes small to be able to keep an eye on the children and give special attention to everyone. Grade: 10
