Private Lessons 

Private lessons of 30 minutes are available for individuals. Private lessons can be valuable when a child is not confident in the water and needs focused time to achieve swimming. Some parents choose private lessons exclusively as they feel they develop a lot quicker. When concentration is an issue, a private lesson can allow the child to focus without distractions, or if the child focus well and would respond better one on one then a private lesson could achieve better results.
