Though it is a very short time, I must say that Coach Raymond has been an excellent swimming coach for my girls . He makes every lessons fun and interesting . His patience with the children is also commendable. My girls look forward to each and every lesson they have with Coach Raymond. Under his guidance, my girls, who were initially not very enthusiastic about going swimming lessons, now enjoy swimming very much and has improved tremendously. I would not hesitate to recommend Coach Raymond to any of my friends should they need a swimming instructor for themselves or their children.”
Keith Neo, Dad of Khern Yih
“My daughter passed her Swimsafer 2.0 Silver & Gold in 6 months after taking one-to-one lessons with Coach Raymond. Besides being patient and encouraging, Coach Raymond’s expertise in teaching the right techniques and conditioning helped to lower her timings greatly in the demanding Gold requirements.
A great swimming coach, he also takes effort to communicate with parents by providing feedback every lesson. He is also flexible and accommodating to changes in lesson timings. I strongly recommend Coach Raymond to any parent and child who wishes to achieve their Swimsafer in a professional and nurturing environment. Well done , coach Raymond!”
