SWIMMING LESSONS - 5 YEARS EXPERIENCE, LEVEL 2 QUALIFIED, LOUGHBOROUGH, SMALL GROUP/1-to-1

Methodology

After 10 years of competitive swimming, I now enjoy passing on my knowledge and passion for swimming to the swimmers I teach/coach.

Am the right teacher for you? well...due to my years of experience and being a swimmer myself, I know exactly the best way to teach all types of swimmers. From young beginners to swimmers who may not be so confident in the water, swimmers wanting to improve their technique, children or adults with disabilities or learning difficulties, coaching based lessons and people who just want to have fun while they swim. I cater for all! Whatever you want, I will deliver as I am very adaptable in my teaching methods. With it being a very personal type of teaching, timing of the lessons can be very flexible to suit your schedule. Equipment: woggles/noodles and/or armbands would need to be provided by the swimmer (very useful to have these anyway for your own personal swim sessions).

Background

My name is Keelan Fitton and I am currently studying at Loughborough University as a second year student, and alongside my studies I currently teach swimming at one swim school on a Sunday evening. I am a very friendly, bubbly and smiley individual who is very organised and prompt.

I'm 19 years old and in the last year have retired from competitive swimming after 10 years where I am proud to say I reached British Championship level. I now am able to pass on my knowledge and passion of swimming to others through teaching, something I throughly enjoy and find very rewarding.

I have been involved in swimming teaching for five years now - 2 years assisting lessons and the last 3 years teaching lessons. I currently hold my ASA Level 1 and ASA Level 2 Teaching Qualification, as well as a current First Aid Qualification. Previous to coming to Loughborough, in Huddersfield, I taught at four different swim schools and I worked with a range of ages and abilities. I have also had the opportunity to teach one-to-one lessons with children who have disabilities. Over the years I have created my own games and teaching methods which incorporate learning whilst having fun.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : £18/h

Details

Prices will vary depending on:
- the swimming pool used. I am able to go to multiple pools in the Loughborough area. I do however only cycle at university so if you were wanting to go to a different/preferred pool further out, we could discuss this. Some pool also charge an entry fee. If you wanted to hire out a lane in a pool, this would need to be discussed, alternatively we could use public swim space (dependent on the pool rules).
- the length of the lesson. This is up to you, 30 minutes, 1 hour or longer.
- the amount of swimmers. £18 is per child per hour (based on a 1-to-1 lesson), if there were two swimmers or more then this price would be adjusted (cheaper).

WORK EXPERIENCE
Qualified Swim Teacher
I have been involved in swim teaching as a part-time job for five years working at various swim schools (Amphibi Kids Swim Academy, Splashalot Swim School, Becky Adlington Swim Stars, Huddersfield). When home from University I teach at my local council scheme named Kirklees Active Leisure. I currently work at GetSet4Success and have previously worked at SplishSplashSwim which are both based in Loughborough. I teach individuals and groups of children ranging from ages four to eleven. All swimmers are of different abilities meaning I am very adaptive and flexible, and I have had experience working with and aiding different ages of children in their learning.

VOLUNTEERING
Charity Work – Loughborough University has a brilliant scheme called Rag (Raising and giving) whereby students can take part in charity-related events to raise money for brilliant causes. I have taken part in many Rag Raids including one last month where I spent a day in London bucket-collecting for Breast Cancer UK, and managed to raise £370.
Volunteering – I have also taken part in many ‘Action’ projects organized by the University which are created to help the local community. Some of the projects I have got involved in include Nursery Play dates, Maintenance work at Primary Schools and Re-decorating a church.
Both of these have led me to become more aware of others and their circumstances, and hopefully my effort and time will have helped somebody less fortunate than myself.

POSITIONS OF RESPONSIBILITY
Hall Chairmen - After a hard week of campaigning, I was voted in as the new Harry French Hall Chair, which is one of sixteen accommodations at Loughborough University. Within my role I run and organize all Hall Events and ensure they run smoothly such as Freshers and Winter/Summer Balls, alongside my sixteen committee members. I also ensure a positive relationship between the University and the students and I am someone many students rely on to help with various issues. Being Hall Chair has meant I have greatly developed my organization, communication and leadership skills.

SPORT
From a very young age I have always been involved in a whole range of sports, with swimming being the pinnacle. I competitively swam from the age of eight and swam at British Championship and National level for four years before retiring at the age of 18. Swimming developed me as an individual and taught me to be committed, determined and a team-player in every aspect of my life. I am now a member of the Loughborough Student Lifesaving Club where I train and compete regularly as a member of a brilliant team.

QUALIFICATIONS
ASA Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching), ASA Level 2 Swimming Teaching and I am qualified in Emergency First Aid.
