Hi I’m Jacqui, I’m a level 2 swimming teacher & have been teaching since I was 16. I love all aspects of swimming & have also re-joined Beacon Swimming club as an assistant coach.

My favourite thing about teaching is seeing the progression, be it gaining water confidence or improving their stroke or times.
