Swimming Trainer with Students

We had an excellent experience with Tia! My daughter was very afraid of going underwater prior to her lessons and she’s now going underwater, floating and working on her swimming strokes. She’s excited about the pool and looks forward to her
lessons with Tia.


As a mother of busy toddler twin boys, water safety/swim Lessons was at the top of our list of must haves. My husband has always loved the water and is a great swimmer so we knew when the time was right, we would enroll our boys in lessons. Unfortunately, our plans to begin the process were derailed with the pandemic but as 2021 ushered in safe options we hopped right on it. Initially, we chose a brick and mortar school but quickly realized that our needs weren't being met. Frustrated but eager to find an option that felt more personal, I found Tia and First Stroke Mobile Swim School. I was interested in the 1:1 option and that she came to you. It sounded like a win-win and it was also important that my children saw themselves reflected in the water which isn't always the case for African Americans.
During our initial conversation, Tia asked about my sons and what were our goals. It was during that conversation that I mentioned I wanted to become a swimmer as well. It had been more than a decade since I stepped foot in a pool and I didn't know where to start. So, we scheduled our consultation and immediately following the three of us were signed up. Our plans included six lessons each and with every lesson we became more confident and comfortable in the water. Tia was flexible when needed and the boys absolutely loved her. In the end, they learned key skills for water safety and I became a swimmer!

We cannot wait for our next season with First Stroke because our first was truly life changing. If you are in the market for swim lessons that are personalized, fun, and effective please consider making First Stroke Mobile Swim your top option. You'll be so glad you did.


My family and I were very satisfied with Frist Stroke Swim school. Ms. Tia was always on time and she utilized music and toys to keep the kids engaged in the water. My littles ones have made considerable progress and we will return next summer!!
