Even as a toddler I loved being in the water and grabbed every chance to go to the local swimming baths or the pool when on holiday. Once I was 5 years old, I started swimming lessons and never looked back. I remember always working hard in my lessons so when we went swimming as a family, I could swim with my older brothers in the deep end!
Once progressing through the stages, completing my honours and gold speed challenge at 15, I decided to switch my focus to teaching swimming. From this I gained my Level 1 and started assisting swimming lessons, eventually going on to teach and complete my Level 2.
Caitlin’s teaching experience
I have experience teaching children from age 3 to 12 and have taught adult 1-2-1’s in the past. I like a fun and games based approach, which I think is the most effective way for children to learn whilst still enjoying their lessons! I believe strongly in learning and education, and am extremely passionate about teaching swimming. I love working with children and it is immensely rewarding to see the development and progress learners make.
I hope to convey my love for aquatics through my lessons and inspire a new generation of children to be as passionate about swimming as I am.
