Andrea was instrumental in my 8 year old daughter passing the Junior Guards swim test this year. She's a total fish but when it came to putting her face in the water and proper form, she had a mental block. After just a few lessons with Andrea she cut a full minute off of her swim time and she passed! But the best part of the whole experience was when my daughter said "Mom, Andrea really cares about me doesn't she." I cannot recommend Andrea enough, she truly is gifted at what she does.
