Si Qi (Part-Time)
It is my goal to instill in my students the value of respecting water through establishing a healthy relationship with it. In most cases, it takes some getting used to since it is a skill that must be honed and nurtured over time. As a swimming instructor, I find it rewarding when non-swimmers are inspired to reach higher because swimming and water safety skills provide avenues for survival and personal development. As a result, I strive to give them the confidence necessary to swim.
Education: Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (Edith Cowan University), RISE Business and Data Analytics (Boston Consulting Group), Graduate Diploma & Graduate Certificate in Professional Counselling (Swinburne University of Technology), Diploma in Psychology (Oklahoma City University
As a coach, my main goal is to develop my swimmers' water confidence and survival skills to ensure their water safety in any water body. As an ex-competitive swimmer, I can understand the vast amount of effort it takes as a swimmer to be strong and fast and thus I have high expectations of my swimmers in their commitment and behaviour. Through my experiences, I hope to pass on my tips and tricks to help my swimmers improve. In my classes, I promote a positive environment where children can have fun and feel comfortable trying out different things, of course, all within limits. In addition, I draw on my experiences and knowledge gained through my Polytechnic journey in Early Childhood Development and Education to curate my teaching style.
I started swimming at the age of 4 and since then, swimming has become my favourite sport! I love creating and developing relationships with the people around me and I hope to be able to share my knowledge and experiences with the generations to come. My goal is to help my swimmers develop a love for swimming, just as my coaches did for me.
Jia Jun (Part-Time)
In my role as a Learn-to-Swim coach, I teach students basic survival skills before introducing advanced strokes, so that they feel comfortable entering the water. Swimming safety is my number one priority, and I always ensure that my swimmers are learning in a safe and enjoyable environment. To better groom the next generation of swimmers in Singapore, I always believe in sharing all of my knowledge with my swimmers and colleagues.
