We hired Brian to teach our four-year-old son to swim. We got to him because my mother had observed him teaching another child in her building’s pool and noticed what a remarkable teacher he is (she taught school for many years). My son loves him and has come such a long way in just a few weeks–he is comfortable in the water, can dive underwater and swim on his own. Brian is amazingly patient and very engaging in how he teaches–including toys that my son has to dive for, games, and fun and humor throughout. He keeps my son moving constantly–very gentle and nurturing while at the same time pushing him to stretch further. I highly recommend him and feel fortunate to have found such a gifted swim teacher for my son.
