Our low student to teacher ratio is what sets us apart and makes our lessons more effective than the common model of instruction used at large, corporate designed swim schools. Individuals who have a fear of the water or have had a previously traumatic experience in or around water are well served by our skilled and knowledgeable staff.
Our private swim lessons provide students with the individual attention needed to gain swim skills quickly.
We teach infants and adult to be open water and pool safe. We ask that they do not wear goggles so we know they can open their eyes under the water comfortably and find the edge, ladder or stairs to exit the pool. Our pool is saline so we don’t have to worry about high levels of chlorine effecting eyes health.
Patti’s Swim School also specializes in designing effective instruction for individuals who have special needs.
Patti’s Swim School has taught over 40,000 students to swim using the Red Cross curriculum. Our mission is to teach mastery of the skills needed for students to be both open water and pool safe. We believe that our students learn best when instruction is consistent, caring, and clear and we reward their mastery of each of the 7 levels with our custom designed patches.
We are proud to offer award winning swim instruction for students of all ages and abilities.
Patti’s Swim School has won multiple awards for excellence in swim education. We are pleased to announce our most recent award, a medal in the Best Swim Class Category for Best of the Best, Bay Area Parent Magazine 2019.
