Friendly Dolphin Swimming Instructor In Singapore

A good swimming instructor or swimming teacher is being looked up to by their pupils as role models. Students will look upon to teacher for knowledge and guidance. Friendly Dolphin Swim School firmly believes that a teacher must possess several key characteristics that will make him or her shine out.

These are some of the characteristics that will make the best teachers and determine their level of success in teaching. Especially in the pool, a swimming teacher will always have to foster discipline making sure students maintain it.

A teacher is a means of travel like a car; the students or athletes is the traveler. It is their journey; teachers are there to help them get to where they are supposed to be. Good coaching will always place the interests of the swimmers first.

Friendly Dolphin Swim School always makes sure our teachers and private swimming instructors in Singapore have all of these qualities.

  • Patience
  • Good control and management of students
  • Effective communication

Aware that children’s behavior and attention spans will also try your patience.

No matter what is thrown at you, the teacher has to show patience and control at all times.

Always admit when a teacher does not know the answer and make it a business to find out

Good Control And Management

Golden rule is our teachers will always set out early on to show them who is the “boss”
