Group Lessons

Two swimming levels are taught each hour, to help accommodate those with several children. Check the schedule for available classes. I have tried my best to give you several options. Each group has an adult teacher and a helper.  I split my time between both groups of children.   There are 4-6 children in a group, depending on the level.  If you need a description of my levels, please see the videos on the home page or email me at

Cost:  $145 for five 1-hour lessons every weekday for 1 week
$150 for the Junior Lifesaving Class
$115 for the Mommy & Me Class

How many weeks should my child take?  I suggest 2 weeks in the same summer for Levels 1 & 2.  The repetition really helps the children get comfortable and swim farther!

Bring:  Please bring your child already dressed in a swim suit and flip-flops they can easily get on and off themselves, as well as a towel and goggles with their name on the strap.  In addition to goggles, Level 5 students need to bring a mask, snorkel, and fins.

Directions:  1742 Carruthers Pl 38112 is my address.  Go West on Poplar past the Zoo.  Cross over McLean and take the 1st right onto Hawthorne. Take the 2nd left onto Carruthers Pl.  1742 is on the right.

Drop Off & Pick Up:  Parents do not stay during the lessons. To prevent traffic problems, please drop off 5 minutes before lessons are to start and pick up your child AT THE CURB in front of my house.  Please stay in your car. Either I or my teachers will be there to get your children out and put them back in your car. This enables the children’s safety, and lets us talk with you individually about your child’s progress. While waiting in line, please do not block my neighbor’s driveways.

Rain: Please wait to call 276-5259 45 minutes before your child’s lesson for a cancellation message on my answering machine.  Please do not assume that lessons are canceled because it is raining at your house. It may not be raining here. If I have to cancel an entire lesson, we will make it up on that Saturday at the same time. If I have to cancel part of the lesson, we will go longer on other days. The Junior Lifesaving class will meet rain or shine. (We can go inside and do our classwork.)

Make Up Lessons:  We only make up for bad weather, if your child gets sick or injured, or a family emergency.  We are unable to make up for vacations, birthday parties, or sporting events.   Make up days are always on Saturday at the same time as the scheduled weekly lesson. With the number of children and lessons involved we have to hold to this policy.  Thank you for understanding.

Celebration Day:  Please come the last 30 MINUTES of class on Friday.   All family members are welcome!  All siblings are invited to swim during play time at the end.
