Hello! My name is Jodi and I am an International Development student currently studying at Humber College. I have six years of teaching experience and lifeguard experience. Previously, I have worked as a swim instructor and lifeguard for the City of Toronto and YMCA. I’ve taught infants with parents, toddlers and children ages 3 to 17, and adults. I have worked with variety of swimmers and I understand how to meet each need appropriately. I use an all inclusive teaching approach to ensure swimming goals are achieved for every student I teach.  I provide a learning environment which challenges my students to explore their swimming abilities while they enjoy themselves. My teaching approach includes: acknowledging swimmer’s goals, establishing trust, building self-confidence, hands-on learning experience, constant updates and providing results. I am a highly motivated and I look forward to provide an educational and fun learning to swim experience.
