Teacher and swim coach in Honolulu, Hawaii who has worked with children for over 35 years

Methodology

I believe each child learns in his or her own way and in his or her own time. I start where a child is and move on from their at a pace that is beneficial to the child.

Background

I have been a teacher and swim coach for over 35 years and worked with hundreds of children, ages 3 - 18, on the mainland and in Hawaii. I work well with children individually and in large or small groups.
