My daughter took private lessons with Melanie. At 6 prior to this she has little exposure to swimming. Melanie was amazing and took her time with my super energized little one. My daughter could not wait to see her each week, she was not only kind but professional! I would recommend asking for her for any age child wanting or beginning to swim. She loves to see them succeed as much as you do. We will definitely be taking more lessons with Melanie, my daughter would not have it any other way! Thanks Waterworks for having such caring staff!
