My 2/12 year-old daughter is taking private swim lessons at The J. Over the course of a few months, we’ve gone from her crying before and during the lesson to now, looking forward to the lesson, blowing bubbles, going underwater and floating on her back by herself. I am really impressed with the professionalism of the instructor, Tamika. Her patience and encouragement is fantastic. - Becky R.
