Reviews From Parents

  • positive review  Miss Emma is a natural at getting my stubborn, strong-willed, scared kids to do the impossible! My girls have come leaps and bounds and can now save themselves if they were to fall into water. My son, who used to only doggie paddle can now do an amazing free style, and can also do the butterfly, breaststroke, and backstroke. All in 3 weeks!! He wants to be just like Michael Phelps.... He's found a new hobby that he is obsessed with. I am forget grateful. Miss Emma is tough and persistent, but kind and encouraging. My kids responded so well to this type of instruction. It's a well spent investment! Thank you Miss Emma!!

    5 star review  This is only the second week of lessons for our 18 month old son and we can already see the work paying off! Ms. Emma is so patient and makes not only me as the parent comfortable, but relaxed for my son as well. Swimming is a valuable skill for any child to learn. Here's a little note my son "wrote" for her on his second Monday: Ms. Emma, Even though I am crying every time I see you, I know it's good for me to be taking swim lessons. Thank you for teaching me! Mommy thinks it's hard to watch, but is excited about my progress! Love, Steven �

    positive review  We have been more than happy with the results. She was very honest in regards how much time Our baby needed in order to successfully complete the course. We noticed advancement even in the first week. Mrs. Emma has a gift for this. She really does

    5 star review  Ms. Emma taught just about everybody in my family how to swim, including myself when I was a kid. Even as an adult, I still use the swimming techniques she taught me back in the '90s. She was a great teacher back then and still is!

  • positive review  Ms. Emma has been a God send to us. My daughter was 9 months when we started her in the survival class. Within 2 days she had figured out at least how to get herself over and to air. We have pools at many of our family members houses and it's a breathe of fresh air to know that heaven forbid she gets away without noticing that she can save herself. We cannot say enough amazing things about our experience and will be back to learn how to swim when she is able to.

    positive review  We did our refresher lessons this year with Ms. Emma and we loved it! I was afraid they didn’t know anything anymore and Ms. Emma had both of them swimming like fish in no time! She showed me the proper way to swim with them in the pool and we are all so much more confident around the water now! I would (and have) recommend Ms. Emma to everyone! Thank you Ms. Emma for the priceless peace of mind!!

    positive review  Ms. Emma was absolutely amazing with our son! Before beginning classes with her he was afraid of the water and wouldn’t even allow us to carry him around the pool. He really felt comfortable with her from the start and made incredible changes over the weeks we saw her. I can’t wait to take him back to learn strokes. Worth the investment!!

    positive review  Ms. Emma has been instrumental in teaching both of our boys how to swim. Her consistent instruction is very effective, and she is also able to creatively respond if the kids lose focus. We are confident in their ability to swim now because of Ms. Emma’s approach to safety and the swimming techniques she taught to them.

    positive review  We have been going to Ms Emma for almost 10 years! I take all my 6 kids, starting from when they can crawl to learn swim and survival from Ms Emma! They continue to go every summer for a refresher class and help with strokes. I feel very comfortable taking all my kids alone to any pool as I am confident that they have the skills to swim and survive since they have been taught by Ms Emma! She is a very patient, persistent and qualified teacher who knows how to teach even the most stubborn child and they all end up loving Ms Emma and swimming!! Thank you Ms Emma!!

  • 5 star review  So thankful for Ms. Emma's swim instruction. Thanks to her my almost 3yr old daughter had a wonderful, safe and fun summer in the water. She has always been confident in the water, but now she also has the skills to match her confidence. She absolutely loves swimming and showing off her new found floating and swimming skills. Thank you Emma!!

    positive review  We love Ms Emma and are so thankful our girls had lessons with her. We are very impressed with the progress we have seen with our girls in such a short amount of time. They learned their survival skills at ages 2 and 3 in less than a month. They went from hating to get water in their eyes to swimming and floating in no time. I'm always asked "Is it hard to watch" and "isn't that expensive?!" My response is that it's nothing like the you tube videos where you see the kids getting thrown in so no- I don't have a hard time watching AND you can not put a price on your child's life. Knowing they know what to do if they fell into a pool,pond, ocean...whatever is priceless-worth every penny.

    positive review  Ms. Emma was the best decision we ever made for our 3 year old son. He started with her just before his 2nd birthday and was absolutely terrified of the water. Her knowledge and confidence made me feel extremely comfortable in “ trusting the process”. Sure enough my son now loves her and the water! We will be back every year to swim with her without a doubt! Thank you Ms. Emma for keeping my boy safe!

  • positive review  Where do I begin? I have taken both of my boys to Ms. Emma, and she is such a blessing in our lives. My oldest had started the swim float swim in Orlando, and then we moved here and my first order of business was to find an instructor to pick up where his old one had left off. Ms. Emma had my oldest son swimming freestyle and backstroke at 3 years old! My younger son started with her as soon as he turned one year old. Now, at two years of age, he runs to her at the pool. He adores her and she showers him with praise and affection. I would not take my children to anyone else for swim survival and instruction!

Her approach is awe inspiring and I can’t recommend what she does enough! This vital skill is so important and I’m glad we found her. I’m already looking forward to my daughter’s lessons next summer. Thank you Ms. Emma!!

    positive review  My daughter has been going to Emma since she was 2 ½ years old. We tried the traditional group swim lessons but didn’t feel our daughter was learning enough as she sat on the wall and got incremental opportunities to learn some techniques. We have a pool and needed lessons that would teach her to save herself in the event of an accident. When we started with Emma we saw results almost IMMEDIATELY and our daughter was able to go from swim to float properly by the end of week 2. The peace of mind these lessons gave my husband and I are invaluable. Emma also gave my daughter so much confidence in her ability to swim and a healthy dose of respect for the water. At 5 years old my daughter is now working on stroke lessons, can swim to the deep end of the pool to get toys, and save herself in an emergency. Hire Emma, she is worth EVERY PENNY and please know I don’t normally write reviews but if this one saves one child’s life it will be worth it.

    positive review  Ms. Emma is incredible. My daughter is only two years old and went from being afraid of the water to floating and swimming to safety in only six weeks. Since Ms. Emma's swimming lessons, I've taken my daughter to the community pool and everyone is astonished with how well she swims at such a young age. One parent was explaining that they'd taken their child to another swim school and even after six months of swim school, their child couldn't swim nearly as well as my daughter. Ms. Emma is one of the best investments I've ever made for my child. She's tough, but incredibly friendly, and just an amazing swim instructor. If you are reading this and on the fence about whether to book swim classes with Ms. Emma or not, take it for me, she's worth it. Being a Florida resident, you cannot afford to have children that don't know how to swim. There is too much water around and accidents can occur. Ms. Emma is not only a true professional, she is contributing to the preservation of your child's life.

  • positive review  Absolutely one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. There are people who are good at what they do, and then here are the people who are downright incredible- and Ms. Emma is one of those people. My son was terrified of putting his face in the water and tried to swim with a bizarre kicking motion that actually pulled him under water. On the first day he was putting his face in the water- now he swims, floats, and enjoys himself. Don’t think twice, just sign your kids up- it’s more than worth it! We will absolutely be coming back next year with both kids!!

    positive review  We did survival swim with our 14 month old. He was floating on his own after 4 days of lessons!! So amazed at how easy and natural these life saving skills were for him to learn. After “graduating” his survival lessons we went on vacation. During vacation our then 15 month old was playing in the pool on a sun shelf, as he was moving around he walked off the step and fell head first under water. Even though we were there to save him, it was not needed, he flipped over to his float before we could grab him, so amazing to see! Highly recommend survival swim and swim lessons with Ms. Emma. Both of our boys have done survival swim and my oldest (who is 3) is already learning strokes. So thankful our family can enjoy the water and not fear it. Teaching your children the life saving skill of how to survive in the water is priceless.

    positive review  Ms. Emma is amazing and really cares about teaching water safety and survival. My son had lessons at a popular chain location and a private instructor before we came to Ms. Emma. To say he was terrified to swim was an understatement, after his first lesson he eased up due to Emma’s firm but warm teaching style. In a few short weeks he was swimming on his own. We came back this year for a refresher and while we have not spent more than a handful of days near a pool he remembered everything she taught him a year before and is now diving into pools on his own. I started lessons with the intent of my son being able to rescue himself if an accident occurred and it has grown into a love for the water. He is excited to go to class and asked many times throughout the year to see Ms. Emma. Her new nickname to me is the “swim whisperer”.

She was so patient, and every lesson they improved noticeably! You can tell she genuinely cares for your kids! We get to spend our summers at the pool with complete peace of mind that our girl’s know what to do Incase of an emergency! God forbid anything happen, I believe Emma has taught them and me everything we need to know about water safety! We look forward to seeing Emma every year. She’s AMAZING!!

    5 star review  Miss Emma is someone we will remember forever. I thought our 3.5 year old who hated getting her face wet would be a challenge. Our daughter was swimming on day 1 and "graduated" in 4 weeks. There were tears along the way (which is normal) but Miss Emma's calm and direct style eased the nerves. Now our daughter loves the water and I feel better knowing she has the skills necessary to float and swim if she were to ever fall into a pool/lake.

    positive review  Hands down one of the best investments we’ve ever made. I brought my firstborn to Ms. Emma when he was 2 years old and I became worried that he was scarily confident around the pool. She patiently worked with him for 5 weeks and he was broken of bad habits and learned that swimming can be fun once one is taught safety. We returned to her for 3 years and then moved on to swim strokes in swim team. Our infant daughter recently nailed her float flawlessly with her Emma’s help. I tell parents that are hesitant that this is much like “sleep training” some kids cry because they have to learn a new skill. In this case it’s one that could save their life one day 🙏

  • positive review  Not only can my daughter float on her back, but she can swim to safety, all in six week! Taking her to Ms Emma was the best decision. She went from crying going into the water to being excited to go in the water, all in a matter of days. We had many recommendations and I can see why, she is the best! So grateful to her helping keep my daughter stay safe in the water. We will continue to go back every year. I would recommend Ms Emma to all parents that want their kids to learn real survival skills.

    positive review  Ms. Emma has been nothing short of amazing working with our 1.5 year old daughter. She is consistent, compassionate, and clear with children (and the adults who care for + love them). Our daughter has QUICKLY learned essential skills to save her life and we plan to continue learning, maintaining, and perfecting these vital skills. Spending the time and money is MORE than worth it to keep our daughter alive--especially in and around so much water in Florida. Thank you, Ms. Emma for your passion for teaching and saving our children!
