    Brian is a fantastic aquatics teacher. Both my kids love him. Always calm and fun. My 3 year old daughter looks forward to her weekly 3:1 swim lesson with Brian. It’s a highlight of her week. My 11 year old son, who has Down’s syndrome, took to Brian immediately, enjoying fun 1:1 swim sessions adapted to his needs. I highly recommend Brian’s swimming lessons. If ever he…more

    Brian’s friendly manner and methodical approach has given my wife and I the necessary confidence in water and enabled us to overcome our joint fear of water. Bad memories of trying to learn to swim at school have been washed away with Brian’s expert tuition.

    I hired Brian to help with swimming lessons for my partner who had a severe fear of the water since childhood (even being on the poolside proved difficult). The turnaround in confidence was amazing and very quick. Within 2-3 lessons, my partner was able to glide underwater and feel fairly confident within his depth; we were able to enjoy a fantastic beach holiday and spent…more

    Brian is a great swimming coach, had little trouble to get started. I progressed at a good pace when Brian was coaching me. He always answers your questions, puts you at ease when you are in water which is a great plus. Will recommend him to anyone.

    I went to Brian when I was suffering from a bad back and the only form of exercise I was allowed was swimming. I learned that you could swim incorrectly and further the damage so I decided to learn the right technique. I highly recommend Brian as an instructor. He takes a keen interest in teaching and making the learning experience very pleasant; his approach is emphasis…more

    I worked with Brian to improve my swimming stroke. He’s patient and methodical. I improved with each lesson. Brian is a nice guy and you feel like you are training together rather than being taught.

    Brian has been teaching my two young daughter to swim, and I can’t recommend him highly enough. He has gradually taught them all the techniques and skills they need to swim well, with great patience and humour – making classes fun as well as educational.

    Brian is without doubt the best swimming instructor my son has ever had. After trying quite a few people and seeing no results we gave Brian a call, he was flexible, friendly and his 1-1 lessons have really brought my son’s swimming on. Honestly, I cannot recommend Brian enough, I think it says a lot that recently my son’s school has asked about swimming lessons for their…more

    Having spent a week of early morning lessons in the pool with Brian I can honestly say that he has made more impact on my swimming abilities than anyone else I have tried. He is patient, empathetic and delivers results. He has a calm and reassuring approach and is full of reassurance and praise. Give him a try, I’m sure he’ll make a difference.

    Senior Quantitative Trader at AllianceBernstein

    I hired Brian last year as a swimming coach for my son, “googling” for private lessons in my local area in London. We could have not been luckier: despite convenience one of the main factor in the decision, Brian is highly competent and he is great in teaching to kids, to the point but my son looks forward to the next lesson with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone…more

    Brian is teaching my daughter to swim. Not only is she completely comfortable with him in the water, shes getting close to swimming all on her own at the age of 2. Tried other baby/toddler swimming classes, but found that the class was cramped and it was more about ducking the child under than actually teaching them to swim. cant recommend Brian enough!!

    Brian provided very useful basic training to prepare me for a triathlon and swimming in open water. Much to my surprise, I did relatively well and would recommend him to any tri-athlete who needs to improve his swimming skills

    I would warmly recommend Brian. I was swimming like a clog, and he turned me into a freestyler – I am not going to win the Olympics, but I am now feeling I can swim decently. Simple method, great results, nice and reliable person!
