I am happy to share these reviews with you from some of my previous clients. I remember the lessons with fondness and I am always grateful for any and all feedback from new students as well.
I am 30 years old and now know how to swim, words I thought would never be able to be applied to me. Fran is a for sure God send to my family and I. If you are an adult and have a fear of water or are looking for a kind and proficient teacher for your kids, Fran is the one for you. Her years of experience shine through in each lesson. My 3 year old, 1 year old and I loved her from day 1. My kids drew to her like family:) She has many creative ways to get children to calm down and have fun while learning life saving skills. We were all amazed at the things we were learning and it sparked in us a love for swimming. We are so thankful for Fran and the experience we had learning from her.
I was 22 when I decided to learn how to swim and so glad I got Fran. She was efficient quick and very professional. I only took 3 sessions with Fran 30 minutes each and I was swimming like a pro. She also took me to the beach for a different learning experience. Now whenits been a while. I swim people think am in competitive swimming.
Fran has been so great with my little guy (age 2). He is super shy and takes a long time to warm up to people, however, he had an instant connection with Ms. Fran. Fran has had a very gentle approach with my son and kept the lessons fun, which is exactly what we were looking for. I didn’t want him to have a fear of the water and be forced to do things he wasn’t ready to do. Fran was the perfect fit for us. We have had about 12 lessons and my guy is swimming like a fish. We will be using Ms. Fran for our younger son next summer. I highly highly recommend!
See What People Are Saying About Their Swimming Lessons with Fran:
“Fran taught me how to swim! I can’t believe I am now a swimmer. I nearly drowned as a child, so I was always afraid of the water. Fran calmed me down and showed me how to be safe in the water. For me, she was a miracle worker. I highly recommend Fran to anyone who wants to learn.”
“I learned a lot of things from Fran. I had to increase my ability to swim in a short span of time. She worked great with my schedule and helped me with all the questions I had. I’m a relatively quick learner, but the things that I struggled with she was very patient with. She has a great personality and a phenomenal ability to teach!”
“It is difficult to put into words how awesome Fran was, she was simply outstanding and in a different league to any other instructors we have seen. Her gentle calm instructions had my little boy go from being scared to get in the water to swimming underwater and picking up dive sticks in under four lessons.”
“Fran is a great instructor! My daughter 2 1/2 was afraid her first few lessons but Fran was so good at calming her down. She was great with my daughter, very calming, patient and soothing. We did about 13 lessons and she is swimming awesome! She can swim underwater across the pool and pick up her swim sticks from the bottom…” (read more)
