It's never too early or too late to learn to swim
It's never too early or too late to learn to swim
I have been teaching swim lessons since 1988. I grew up in Jacksonville, FL and taught lessons at numerous clubs, including The JCA on the first team of lifeguards and teachers in 1987. I always dreamed of having a pool in my backyard and teaching full time. I have been living my dream since 2011, after having lived in NYC for 15 years

I am now home to teach you and yours to swim.

I am a Red Cross Water Safety Instructor that can teach anyone to swim and love water! I have found over the years the perfect techniques to teach anyone to swim in only days. There isn't anyone I can't teach to swim, and I love a challenge! I work with those with special needs, older clients, and the very young. You could call me the "Swim Whisperer." So many of my clients have spent months, even years, in group lessons with no success. With me, you learn in days.
All lessons are private one on one with Suzi. Groups are formed with family members or a group you come with. Once you purchase your swim package online, you then contact Suzi by text 904-476-2235 to get onto to the calendar.
Located in Jax Beach, steps to the beach. Outdoor heated shower. Salt water pool. Heated year round.
1. Located at my home at 501 10th Pl S., Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250.
2. All lessons are private one-on-one for swimmers age 6 months and older.
3. Suzi specializes in working with adults and those who had traumatic water experiences.
4. Most lessons the parent is not in the pool with the child. However, they are always in attendance and will be learning as much as the child to help them progress in their swimming for years to come.
5. There is an outdoor changing room, bathroom facilities, and indoor and outdoor hot showers.
6. Lessons are in a secluded, private backyard, surrounded by fencing and lush foliage including a beautiful shaded 100-year old oak tree.
7. There are three Covid friendly areas that allow for separation while you come and go or just sit and watch the lessons.
8. Lessons happen year-round as long as the air temperature is in the 70's and the pool temperature is at least 78 degrees....but at Swim Lesson Suzi we like to keep the water temp in the mid 80's.
9. Lessons are taught during the day, the evening, and the weekend! I always make a schedule that works for you!
10. I will teach at your home if it works into my schedule. However, the price varies based on distance and the number of swimmers.
11. All you need to do is purchase a package and text 904-476-2235 to get on the schedule.
12. Make sure that you email the release form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been teaching Red Cross Swimming for many years. I have a very specific way of being able to teach anyone. I am a believer that you should start your children swimming as early as you can. Red Cross says 6 months. I know group lessons are not as effective as privates. If you are reading this you are for a reason. I am here to teach you or your child. If you have been at a group lessons place for a while ....years ...months ....and have not seen significant progress....I will help you from here out.
My passion in life is bring swimming to children and to adults who never had the chance to learn and to make you the best swimmer you can be!
An outdoor changing room and bathroom is here for YOU!!!
I have had many years of teaching those who need a little extra attention. Those with Autism and other special needs are one of my specialties. I have a special way to communicate swimming techniques and methods through movement, song, fun sounds and touch. I have a special way of singing a lot of the directions, and the kids understand it through the musical sound.
Feel free to ask more questions pertaining to your special one.
There are more pools, lakes, rivers, beaches, ponds.....in Florida than anywhere. It is beyond important to not only be safe around water, but in water! ...to be able to swim and to love it!
I can help you and your family learn to love water and swim like fishes! I have been teaching in my backyard since 2010 and I have been teaching since I was 15 years old. I understand all the different kind of people that come to me to learn to swim. I am 49 this February. I have seen it all. Adults who I know who grew up swimming can't even believe how many adult students I have. You have come to the right place and it is never too late to learn.
Someone asked me if I have any tricks for teaching. I laughed to myself because learning to swim does have exact technical information, but I have mastered the tricks in the pool that get anyone swimming in hours to days in a super fun way! And I love it! I love a challenge! There is still space on my spring schedule.
I am practicing all CDC Covid-safe guidelines and have had zero problems.
Yoga isn't just for pretty bodies who go to yoga studios. Just like learning to swim, especially for adults, it can be uncomfortable learning something new. Suzi makes you feel comfortable, content, and she has a magic of teaching with love and speed.
Turn your world upside down in a whole new way.
More than half of Suzi's swim students are adults. Many adults just never had the opportunity to learn to swim, or they had a traumatic event happen as a child that has prevented them from moving forward with swimming. Swimming Lessons in Jacksonville Beach with Suzi can help you. Whether you are an adult who loves the water but just doesn't know technique and strokes, you will learn here. If you are just looking to get over your fear, Suzi can help you overcome. If you are going out for a military position that needs specific strokes, Suzi is your coach. Learn to swim in Jacksonville! #merchantmarines
Davis came to me wanting to compete in a triathlon. He had already mastered the running and the biking, but he did not know how to swim. He came from up North to Florida, and had not been around water enough to be trained in a capacity that he needed for competition. After only 3 lessons Davis is ready to compete and to probably win. With his strength and stamina and physique, he is now a very well rounded athlete. Davis has praised and thanked me for helping him train to this point of awesomeness!
I can't believe my child is swimming in only a lesson! I have had her in group lessons for years, and Suzi has worked miracles!
" I am almost swimming like a fish.... or should I say mermaid? Thank You Suzi Teitelman! Michael Letchford, soon you'll have a swimming wifey!
My daughter had been taking swimming lessons for 4 years at your typical franchise swim class for kids but after only barely 6-months of swim class with Ms. Suzi she’s not only swimming, she’s considering joining a swim team in school!!! I had a significant fear of water and I had NEVER taken a swim class in my thirty something years of life. However, after 12 lessons with Ms. Suzi, I’m SWIMMING with confidence and ease!!! She is just simply awesome! I’m forever grateful for her gift of gentle guidance! We love you Ms. Suzi!!!
