About Izzy

I learnt how to swim from a young age and have always loved being in the water. I grew up in North Devon and joined Barnstaple Swim Club where I competed in local galas for a couple of years. When I was 14, I moved away from competitive swimming and started helping out at Aquarius Swim School. From this, I went on to achieve my Level 1 and Level 2 STA qualifications in Swim Teaching. I have now been teaching for nearly 5 years and enjoy swimming casually in my spare time.

Izzy’s approach to teaching

I believe that swim lessons should be a fun and safe environment that promotes effective learning. I have experience teaching children aged 3 to 12 but have also taught 1-2-1 adult lessons in the past. I find swim teaching very rewarding by seeing the swimmers progress.
