Tessa's "Prepare Your Baby for Swim Lessons" program was easy to follow and included simple checks for understanding. The videos helped demonstrate the skills and she provides tips for incorporating these fun and essential practices into bath time or pool time! Emphasis is on NOT forcing the baby, but working with the baby and all her senses to better understand how the water works. I recommend this program to ALL parents!

Your Instructor

Tessa Rhodes

I started my career working with children in 2005. Before I became a certified American Red Cross WSI (water safety instructor), I was a drama and gymnastics coach. Of the three, swimming is by far and away, my most favorite to teach, and it happens to be the most rewarding. As I see the progress my students make, I can't help but just love what I do.

Whether you're a parent or a swim instructor or in search of training to become one, you're in the right place. I am excited to share my knowledge with you.
