Thanks to all of his awesome swimming instructors! Special shout out to Mr. Justin and Mr. Limbani, K really enjoys swimming with you guys. Thank you for taking your time with him and treating him like an individual. He recognizes that you respect him and take the time to get to know who he is.
British Swim School is the best swimming school to get your child started on the water. Wonderful instructors and small groups were the perfect combination to help my daughter learn from survival strategies to her first strokes in just a couple of lessons. She is a strong swimmer now!
My son Angel has been one of Miss Rachael’s students for almost a year. He can be stubborn and strong willed but she knows just how to get him to perform and how to progress. The front office management with Cassie & Sabrina are “A1”, not only by keeping a tight ship, but also taking an interest with each and every client. We genuinely love coming to each and every class and growing along with this great school!
We signed up our 4 year old because we wanted her to have more confidence in the pool. After a few classes, she was able to jump in pool by herself and flip over onto back and get into the “star” position! Over the summer, she was a little fish in the pool and she liked to do her “star” floating for us in the deep end! Excellent Instructors, very patient with kids. Thank you for teaching our daughter!
My son is about a year and a half old and has been swimming with BSS in Elmhurst since 4 months old. Our tadpole class was always so fun and adventurous thanks to an enthusiastic Coach Anthony. When we were welcomed into Young Minnow, Coach Nancy quickly won him over and has been an unbelievable coach. I’m amazed that he is now floating on his own and continues to make progress with the basic swimming skills each week with her guidance and encouragement. Thank you!!
My daughter started back in July of 2016. She was a little nervous to start her class because she didn’t like water on her face. To make this story short … on the second class she didn’t want to go anymore she was scared and just didn’t want to continue anymore . As I told her it’s fine don’t worry you don’t have to do swimming anymore as we were going to walk out I started talking to Nicole (she’s the manger at night at this facility) she asked me why so I told her she’s having a hard time putting her face In the water and pretty much we’re done. She asked me if I could give Biritish another chance and if she could due a one on one with her to see if she’ll be able to get her on easy. Which I would say it worked 7 months later she loves it and is doing great in her class. I just wanted to thank Nicole for going that extra mile with my kid she’s a great manger and her staff is wonderful. If it wasn’t for her we would’ve basically gave up that night . Once again awesome staff! There great with kids !!!
Coach Sarah is absolutely incredible. She has just the right firmness to inspire children towards progress, yet balanced with just the right sensitivity to their needs and fears. My daughter had a difficult time when she transition to the next level. Coach Sarah worked her magic and Chloe was back on track within 1 session. Coach Sarah took the time to speak to Chloe and understand what was holding her back. Then, slowly coach Sarah integrated Chloe back into the water, and progressed from simple exercises to more difficult ones, until Chloe swan the whole pool. She then had Chloe look back and see her progress. I was amazed at the sensitivity and delicate care Sarah has shown towards Chloe. Chloe had struggled for 3 sessions, different instructors, and we were just about to quit. Yet, Sarah gave Chloe a new hope, and desire to swim. She woke up the next day asking if she could go swimming again that morning. This came from a child that would cry as soon as she’d recognize the route on the way to the swimming location. As long as coach Sarah is around, we will certainly be around and be customers of British Swim School. Sarah is an irreplaceable asset to British Swim School. She deserves a triple raise and perhaps her own throne. All jokes aside, the Skokie location is thriving today because of dedicated staff members like Sarah. Thank you Coach Sarah. I hope someone shares this message with you. Adela ( Chloe and Grace’s mom). 🙂
Hello, My 6 year old, Sammy, has weekly classes with Mr. Michael on Saturdays at the LA Fitness on Quince Orchard. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a wonderful instructor Michael is. He has an amazing combination of talents that make for a great teacher–he is gentle and kind, yet authoritative enough so that the children listen and pay attention. He is so sweet with the kids, and friendly and polite with the parents. Sammy loves him and has been consistently progressing since we started lessons last year. Michael does such a great job attending to each child’s individual needs and approaching challenges from different angles. I hope you do everything that you can to retain him. He seems to be the gold standard representative for British Swim School! I’m not sure what he does when he’s not an instructor, but he would be an amazing school teacher! Thanks so much, Liza B (also, my British husband concurs. 🙂 )
