As a lifelong learner (and a big believer in it), I understand that adopting a new skill can be both exciting and challenging.
Whether you want to hone your existing skills or learn something completely new, I can provide the guidance and support you need to succeed. My personalized lessons, approach and services have helped people of all backgrounds and skill level achieve greater understanding and expertise; they suit individually to the Client (who can either be a child, an adult with water phobia, special needs or an advanced athlete).
The method is to identify clearly- and set realistic goals with a Client or with Parents in the case of children's lesson. Find the clients best learning system and support them through the learning phases. Using my experience and knowledge besides varied techniques and drills to make the session interesting, beneficial and progressive.

I found the lessons incredibly helpful with Melinda. I could already swim but I always felt something is doesn't add up, I got tired too soon and I just was not efficient in my whole stroke technique. She got into the details of my front crawl and after taking a few hours I could feel the difference already. Nice approach, good pointers and very passionate coach. I highly recommend her to anyone, regardless of swimming level or skills!
I enjoyed the swim sessions very much and I think Melinda is a very good coach. I have a water phobia and have been dreading water for a very long time. She helped me overcome my fear and worked on specific skills which I can use in the future. I definitely won't stop on my journey to learn even more from her! Thanks a lot.
