BIO

Hi, my name is Jen! I just completed my 3rd year in the Concurrent Education program at Queen’s University. I have always loved swimming and have been teaching swimming lessons for seven years to children of all ages. I derive great pleasure from helping children overcome their fears and reach their goals. I am currently teaching swimming at Holland Bloorview where I have gained further knowledge on how to help students develop their techniques and skills in the water. Prior to that, I worked at Camp Manitou as a swim staff and was the Assistant Head of Swim this past summer. I also worked at Zodiac Swim School throughout all four years of high school. Throughout this time I have taught large groups as well as one on one. I love teaching swimming because I believe it is very important for children to be confident in the water but also have an enjoyable time while learning new skills. I have always loved to swim and I hope I can motivate students to share this passion with me!
