I cannot remember a time when I didn’t love being in the water. Since moving to Singapore I have been fortunate to be able to participate in some very enjoyable long distance open water swimming events. I really enjoy sharing this passion with the next generation of swimmers.

As a swim coach at Marsden Swim School I teach them important skills that I hope will give them pleasure throughout their lives. I believe this is best achieved by providing a safe and enjoyable learning experience to build water confidence and keep the swimmers wanting to come back for more.

My hobbies include hiking, diving, cycling, exploring new food places, and live music. I love travelling around the world and meeting people from all walks of life! In my teenage years, I used to be a competitive swimmer, training 3 hours a day, 5 times a week. Swimming became a big part of my life and has taught me so much; within the pool and out.

As a swimming teacher now, my coaching philosophy is to empower my students to realise their abilities in the water and to push these abilities to their fullest potential, giving them the confidence to perform in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. If they can look back after a few years and say “WOW swimming has taught me so much in life!”, then I think my job as a coach is fulfilled.

My teaching key pillars:
  • Safety comes first
  • Every progress is a win
  • Teach through “FUNdamentals”
  • Every minute has a purpose
  • Life skills > Swimming skills
  • Be truthful and firm when there is need for improvement
  • Treat each swimmer with equal respect, love, and care

I always had a strong passion for swimming and other competitive sports. Prior to working as a swimming coach with Marsden Swim School I was part of the navy as a diver where I went through many challenges.

As a swim instructor, I find teaching beginners how to be confident in the water and eventually swim gracefully the most challenging and rewarding experience. I always look forward to moving on teaching them new advance swim skills and techniques to keep improving their abilities. Water safety in a central pillar of the skills I teach my students, always ensuring safety is the priority.

I’m a swim teacher who believes that children should have a fun and safe learning experience. I constantly seek self-improvement and upgrading my skills to ensure my swimmers receive quality learning through verbal, visual and kinestethic methodology.

It has been a challenging yet rewarding experience for me and watching swimmers grow with not only swimming ability, but also good moral values and character, would be my utmost satisfaction in my teaching career.

I have background in the lifesaving varsity team, where I competed along with assisted in teaching lifesaving. As a professional lifeguard I know first hand the importance of learning water safety as well as having the ability to swim for children. I very much enjoy the whole process of imparting the relevant skills to the students and coming up with creative plans to keep lessons fun, engaging and interactive.
