Reviews From Parents

  • 5 star review  Ms. Emma is just amazing! We took our 18 month old to her last year and Ms. Emma could tell she wasn't going to do well with swimming, so she taught her how to float for survival. Two weeks before we were due to resume lessons, eight months since she had been or practiced, we were in a pool and my daughter slipped off a step. I was right next to her and watched her flip onto her back and come to the surface. Now she is almost 2.5 years old and is swimming thanks to Ms. Emma! She notices every change and will tailor the lesson to your child, I couldn't recommend her enough!

    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!!

    positive review  Being a, what I’d like to call, “typical Florida parent” who’s very aware of water exposure EVERYWHERE, I was adamant to get my daughter and, soon after, son into a pool as quickly as I could. Now, I’m not an avid swimmer nor do I have great teaching skills related to swim. So I began the search of who’d best be suited to do so. After about 3-4 not so ideal connections, I decided to check out Ms. Emma. I discovered her via a friend whose sons went from one-“water terrified” and the other-“water fearless” to water babies-safety, swimming laps around the other. I was made a believer within the first week of lessons with both of my children. We’ve since returned yearly to strengthen technique and confidence within the water. I love how Ms Emma is direct and stern yet is gentle and encouraging with children of varying ages and experience levels. She gives specific instructions and expectations to both parents as well as the student to consider both when in and outside the water. I also love how her lessons are first concentrated on the skill and necessity of survival then graduates to stroke lessons with consideration of technique and readiness. Her sessions are short yet consistent as they are a daily 10 minute lesson at 4 day segments. I highly recommend Ms Emma because of her passion and expertise in what she does, her dedication to her students/families, and the confidence and skills she imparts to them. There are so many different people and programs and places to choose from when it comes to teaching your children water safety and swim lessons. I’ve experienced many but none better than Ms Emma’s Swim and Survival Academy. I recommend her highly and without question. My family is lucky to have her.

    positive review  When I brought my four-year-old to Miss Emma she would not even go in the water. After just a couple weeks she was diving in the water, swimming, and playing with her friends. I would recommend Miss Emma to absolutely anybody!!

    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!

  • 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  I cannot say enough amazing things about Ms. Emma!!! My son started with her last summer. He was 2.5 years old. He learned so much from her, I was so amazed. It is amazing and impressive that it only takes ten minutes, four times a week and they can learn so much. He just did his refresher class about a month ago. We have been to the pool a few times since then and I no longer worry about him falling in and him not knowing how to swim and float. Pool time is so much more fun now. I cannot recommend Ms. Emma enough. She is amazing and my son loves her!

    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  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  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 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!!

    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  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  We have had an amazing experience with Miss Emma! We were at another swim school for 14 months with no improvement! My son could not swim or float at all after all that money spent! Within 4 weeks with Miss Emma he can swim-float-swim and save his own life! I am so grateful to have found her for my son’s safety!

    5 star review  We are so ecstatic about our choice of going with Ms. Emma! She is so wonderful to work with and very accommodating with our schedule. Additionally, she is SO communicative about cancelled/postponed lessons which is huge when it comes to the unreliable Florida weather. Our 3-year-old talks about swim and Ms. Emma for days after each lesson, and we are so glad we didn't go anywhere else. I'm going to be sad when they're done for the season lol Perfect choice; highly recommended!

    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 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!

    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  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  If you want the best, most qualified swimming instructor in town, I HIGHLY recommend Ms. Emma!!! Both of my children have taken lesson with her, that is why I can attest to how wonderful Ms Emma truly is. She was able to provide my kids with the knowledge and swimming skills that they can have for the rest of their life. Her skills as an instructor are truly amazing; to witness what these children can accomplish in such a short time is clearly evident that her approach works. She is patient/loving/firm/ with the children; her lessons are about quality not quantity Within 10min 4 times a week I guarantee that you will see a change with your child.

    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!!
