Private One-to-one Lessons
Private, one to one, lessons are offered by Victoria Heal, who has been teaching babies and children of all ages for the last 6 years. Vikki is a fully qualified member of the STA, with her most recent qualification being in ‘Aquatic Teaching: Aquacise’. This has seen Aqua Natal classes added to her busy schedule.
Vikki is incredibly passionate about what she does and has taught hundreds of kids to swim in the Sussex, Surrey and Kent areas. Her love for swimming started at a very young age and has continued through both her children who now swim at club level. She was awarded Puddle Ducks National Star Teacher in 2018.
What people have said about Vikki and her teaching:
‘We have been swimming with Vikki since my son was 12 months old – we love her so much that we have followed her to three different pools and now drive a round trip of 75 miles every Friday to swim with her.’
‘My son’s confidence in the water has just flourished thanks to Vikki’s patience, enthusiasm and caring nature. We both really look forward to seeing her each week and we have such a fun time in the water. My son loves seeing Vikki and spends most of the lesson trying to swim towards her!’
‘She is totally professional and ensures each child who swims with her has an individual lesson, putting to rest any worries that parents may have. We could not ask for a better swimming teacher. Thank you Vikki. We love you!’
‘Vikki is the most fantastic Teacher. She has taught my little one to swim since she was 6 months old. She takes the time to get to know each child and their parents and adapts her teaching style to everyone’s needs. She has given my daughter such confidence in the water. Her lessons are always fun and we always leave with a smile’
‘Having swimming lessons with my daughter has been a real investment. She’s so happy and confident in the water and I wouldn’t change her teacher Vikki for the world! She is patient, kind and my daughter feels really safe with her. She looks forward to swimming with Vikki every Sunday morning and her progress is fantastic because of Vikki’s teaching skills. I feel very confident about her soon being able to swim independently thanks to Vikki. Five words to sum up Vikki: Passionate, Professional, Dedicated, Calm and Motivating’
