Amber began teaching swimming lessons in 1997 at a backyard swim school in Northern California. In 1999, she and her husband Tad decided to move to Huntington Beach. Soon after her move to Southern California, Amber decided to look for a local swim school to start teaching again. In her search she found that none of the schools in the area taught swim lessons with the same style and commitment to each individual swim student that she was used to. So, in the summer of 2000, "Amber's Swim School", was born. Amber started out her school by traveling to various private backyard pools in Huntington Beach and Newport Beach. Then, in the spring of 2006 Amber's dream finally came true when she had her own pool built. She now operates "Amber's Swim School" out of her backyard.
METHOD OF TEACHING
What makes our swim school unique is that we only offer private lessons (one child to one instructor). These types of lessons produce excellent results because the swim instructor is able to adapt his/her teaching methods around the needs of each individual student. Also, the student has more swimming time during their lessons and they are able to learn at their own pace. Our teacher's are Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors and they teach according to the Red Cross standards. Please refer to the Red Cross Swim Levels link, to more fully understand what your child will learn as they progress through each level of swimming.
The swimming pool is located in the quiet and inviting backyard of Amber's home. The temperature of the pool water is always kept around 90 degrees. These key ingredients allow each and every student to feel comfortable and relaxed during their swimming lesson. There is a restroom inside the house that can be used when needed. We also provide seating on the pool deck. We encourage all parents and other family members to attend and quietly observe their child's lessons. (Get Directions)
