Private Swim Lessons

If you've ever watched group swim lessons, you've probably noticed a few things: students receive very little actual instruction, spending much of their time waiting at the side of the pool while the instructor works with one child at a time. Most group lessons are only offered once or twice a week, often so that the facility can charge recurring membership fees over time rather than condensing the lessons into the relatively short time actually needed to help a child progress
It's no wonder that many families are turning to private swim lessons. Our one-on-one swim lessons provide you the most personalized swim instruction available, allowing you to see progress in your ability at an impressive pace.Private swim lessons are the most effective way to develop water safety skills, learn how to swim and become confident in the water for a lifetime.

Why people choose Sunsational for their
Private Swimming Lessons

     We would recommend Sunsational Swim School to anyone! Our instructor Kari was always on time and great with our kids. Our 4 year old is swimming perfectly and will even dive in to get the dive rings. Our 2 year old can back float and swim under the water to the steps to get himself out of the pool. We are very pleased, even amazed at what Kari taught our children in 12 private swim lessons. Best $$$ we ever spent!

     We decided to try out Sunsational private swimming lessons for our four year old son and two year old daughter after having little luck with small group instruction at a local swim school the previous summer. The difference was obvious immediately. The kids LOVE their swim instructor. Chelsea Weedman, and can't wait to get in the pool every day. Besides the enjoyment factor the instruction was HIGHLY EFFECTIVE. My son was swimming (at least aquatically mobile) by the fourth lesson. A great school and a great instructor - thanks to both!

     I've been scared of water over my head my whole life and was very nervous but ready to take swim lessons as an adult, Bilaal Hakim actually made it fun! After just 6 private lessons I went from being totally terrified in the deep end of my pool to being comfortable and being able to swim and tread water. I would recommend Sunsational Swim School to any adult looking to learn how to swim!

Why are Private Swimming Lessons So Important?

Drowning is the leading cause of death for children who are four and under and the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death among children ages 14 and under
The majority of children drowning in a swimming pool are in the care of one or both parents and have been missing from sight for less than five minutes
The majority of pool submersion deaths and injuries occur at a home pool or spa

Drowning is Preventable

Participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by as much as 88% among children age 1-4 years.
Learning to swim is the only sport that can save you or your child's life

Top Benefits of Private Swim Lessons


Entertaining games and exciting activities are at the heart of Sunsational Swim Lessons, making the process of learning to swim as enjoyable as possible for learners of all ages. Each student receives a Sunsational Skill Chart and Certificate, which tracks their progress through the lessons and recognizes their accomplishments.


If you're looking for significant progress in a short amount of time, private swimming classes provide the personalized attention and consistency required. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee means that your child will be able to swim in a matter of weeks, rather than months or years.


Private swim lessons near me! No more driving across town or interrupting nap time to go to swim class! With private swimming classes, you choose the location-your own pool, public pool, etc.-the day(s) of the week, and the time. Our instructors come to you!


Private swim lessons are inherently flexible, allowing your child to learn to swim at his own pace. Ready to move quickly to the next lesson? Need to slow down and work on an area of weakness? No problem!


It's widely known that students learn better with smaller class sizes. In group lessons, you receive much less attention as the instructor has to divide her time among many students in the class. The result? You get very little direct instruction and may need many months of lessons to make any measurable progress. Private swimming lessons actually save you money by helping you progress much more quickly than you would during typical group lessons.


Learning is fun, fast, and focused during private swim lessons. You will have the instructor's undivided attention and fewer distractions than lessons at a public school.

We are so lucky to be paired up with our swim instructor Nichelle through Sensational Swim School! She is a wonderful swim instructor for our three-year-old twin girls. She is extremely knowledgeable and the perfect mix of encouraging them to push themselves further and allowing them to move at the pace that feels comfortable for them. Their progress and newfound confidence in the water has far exceeded what we had even hoped for. 12 lessons ago they were just getting out of their floaties... Now they are able to swim unassisted with their faces underwater and one of our daughters can swim all the way across the pool long ways on her own now! They can both jump in off the side and swim back to the side. She is serious about safety and has eased our minds about them being able to get to the side of the pool and climb out unassisted if, heaven forbid, they fell in. The girls are excited to show Nichelle what they have practiced at each lesson. They look forward to their lessons and work hard as she keeps it fun and empowering for them! She's sweet, kind and patient and has really endeared herself to our daughters who can be very shy with new people. Nichelle is the perfect teacher for us!
Cole has been nothing short of amazing over the last 2 months. He is by far the best children's swim instructor we've seen - he keeps a fastpace, which keeps the kids interested and attentive. He's supportive, encouraging and has made outstanding progress with both of our kids. He took our 5 year old from being afraid to put her head under water in the first lesson to swimming free-style w/ side breath the length of the pool. And, he took our 2 year old from being deathly afraid of the pool to safely getting in and out the side of the pool on his own, 'monkey' scaling the side of the pool & blowing bubbles. We are most grateful for having had the opportunity to work with such a knowledgeable and kind instructor!
We could not have been more pleased with the exceptional service and instruction we received from my 5-year-old son's Baltimore-based swim instructor, Jaimisyn. A month ago my son was wearing swimmies and today he is jumping in the deep end, diving for toys, holding his breath for more than 30 seconds, and best of all... is confident in his new ability to swim! We are thrilled for him and are indebted to his incredible instructor.
Our swim instructor Brooke is awesome. She is prompt, professional and great with both my 3 year old and 20 year old. Definitely recommend Sunsational and particularly Brooke!
We were so happy to find Sunsational Swim School and be able to have someone come to our house to teach our 3 year old grandson to swim.
They picked the perfect instructor to meet our needs. Christina R understood how to work with a three year old by using songs and references from his favorite shows and characters. Our grandson did so well with the one on one lesson and is now able to swim to the side of the pool and get out on his own. Our goal for this summer was definetly accomplished.
Amanda was a wonderful teacher! My kids looked forward to her lessons- and they NEVER want to take lessons! She was kind, patient, and fun. My kids improved their swimming skills and gained more confidence.
