About Swim Teaching

Being a swimming teacher offers flexible hours that might suit someone who is looking for additional income, students and those who are retired.

Key hours of work are in the afternoon from 4pm-7pm and at the weekends.

I love being a swimming teacher, it’s fantastic to watch children progress and to get more confident in the water. They really do learn something new every week. It’s brilliant to be able to teach swimming alongside my other job and my studies, as the hours are often in the late afternoon and evening giving me the rest of the day to concentrate on my other commitments.
