About ESL

Tina is a qualified teacher for primary and secondary children and has over 20 years experience as a teacher.

ESL Philosophy:

Children are individuals and learn in a variety of ways. A learning environment where fun and enjoyment are the focus will nurture this development in a positive and stimulating way. ESL focuses on building a love for water by growing confidence and gaining an understanding of water safety.

Lessons begin with play and exploratory activities and then progress to developing the basic swimming position with a focus on how the body feels in water. When this has been mastered, technique is introduced and developed in the main strokes. ESL follows both English and Australian teaching methods to ensure the best possible start to swimming.
