Individual tuition - NO GROUP CLASSES! 

I no longer offer bookings of 2 people together. If you are both interested, you will need to register and book sessions separately.  


Courses/lesson durations cannot be changed once booked.


Prices include:

  • Cost to access a COMPLETELY PRIVATE POOL for EXCLUSIVE use.

  • Access to hot shower/changing room facilities at leased pools.

  • Free advice at your first lesson to ensure you buy the right pair to suit your face shape and needs (stock is also available to purchase at 1st lesson). Eye protection is recommended for your comfort and to build confidence quicker. 

  • All teaching equipment (self-practice equipment is available to purchase).


  • "DISCOVERY" (4 x 30 min): $400: for absolute beginners

  • "ACHIEVER" (4 x 30 min): $400: for swimmers wishing to improve

  • "GET WET" (1 x 30 min): $110: for those wishing to trial a session before a course, or seeking a one off class for some tips on technique

You're welcome to continue booking classes in blocks of 4, after your first booking (subject to availability). Please note that Discovery and Achiever courses must be completed within 2 months of payment date; this is to ensure student learning momentum.


Students are welcome to hire the Artarmon pool for private practice during or after a course.

Price includes:

  • EXCLUSIVE use of a COMPLETELY PRIVATE POOL, nobody sharing the water with you.

  • All training equipment.

  • Access to hot shower/changing room before and after hire.

  • 4 x 30 min: $110 + gst

How long does it take to learn to swim? 

I always get asked this over the phone and it's impossible to answer without assessing you in the water!

It really depends on:


  • Your current ability and fitness

  • Your goals (to master one particular stroke or all strokes)

  • Your frequency of lessons (once weekly or up to daily)

  • If you practice between lessons

  • Your own motivation and attitude


There is no "average" length of time! I would however say that after around 8 lessons, a complete beginner should have confidence in breath control, balance and movement in water (with or without flotation aids will depend on the individual).
