Tiffani

I am a married mother of two teenage boys, and in my spare time I volunteer at Paws Wildlife as a rehabber. I am a member of WASART animal rescue team and help with ASPCA field investigation rescue team. My love for the water and swimming started at an early age, Growing up in Southern California provided me the opportunity to learn and compete with some of the best SoCal swimmers.

That same passion that drove me to be an extremely accomplished swimmer has been transformed into my love for teaching children. With my 25 years of teaching I have learned to make it fun and to teach your kids life saving skills. Like anything the more you practice the more familiar swimming will become. My goal is to ensure everyone knows how to swim and be safe around the water.

Allison started teaching swim lessons when she was 14 in her parents backyard and has loved being able to teach such an important life skill! Coaching all different levels of competitive swimming, she loves teaching the ones who are new or unfamiliar to the water and watching them grow in the pool and as a swimmer. “My goal is to get you or your little one water safe and comfortable in and around water while having fun! Nobody should be afraid of the pool.”

Lori

Being in the water was year round for me as I was born and raised in Southern California. I grew up with a pool in my back yard and the beach just a short drive away, so swimming filled many of my days. I took up the sport of Triathlon in college which led to a love of cycling and all things outdoors. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom for the past 19 years, raising up our two children. I love working with children and young adults and look forward to teaching your children!

Ariel

Hi! My name is Ariel. I'm passionate about swimming and happy to share my love of being in the water with you. I learned to swim before I could walk. By the time I was 11 I was swimming the Kona Ironman course and scuba diving. Currently I am an ironman triathlete, having trained and competed locally and internationally.
My teaching career began at 19 when I began teaching self defense, including opening my own school in Bellevue. However, I missed the triathlon and swimming community. When I was offered a chance to coach at YMCA I jumped at the opportunity.
Lisa and I met through this amazing community and I was excited by the "eastside standard". I am proud to represent a school that prides itself on providing quality education and demanding high standards from its instructors. Having worked with students from preschool to adult, I am both qualified and excited to work with you.

Corrine

I grew up in Bellevue and from a very young age was drawn to the water! I started swim team when I was 5 years old and competed for 13 years. I have taught swim lessons on and off for about 12 years ranging from 12 months to adults. I stepped away from teaching lessons so I could focus on coaching swimmers at a competitive level. I coached at Newport High School for 8 years but recently got the urge to get back into swim lessons! I have experience with teaching competitive swimmers to fearful beginners. Swimming has brought me so much joy in my life and my hope is to help others share this joy as well! I have a strong passion for water safety and take great pride in joining a team of instructors that hold water safety to such a high standard.

Ava

Hey, I’m Ava! I have been working at Eastside Swim School for a year now. When I was younger, I learned how to swim at this same pool! I love to see kids progress their swim skills; helping kids be safe and have fun! Coming from a family of swimmers I grew up loving the water and swimming competitively and have been competing ever since. Swimming is my passion and I want to help kids not only learn how to swim and be safe around water, but also to love it as much as I do.

Travis

My name is Travis, and I love everything about swimming. I grew up outside Pittsburgh and went to Penn State. I started swimming at 8 years-old. I swam competitively up through my Freshman year in college. In my 20s and 30s, I have competed in multiple triathlons and completed an Ironman 70.3. I believe everyone should learn how to swim and respect the water. Swimming opens up a lot of fun activities and is an amazing way to exercise. My grandmother swam into her 90s, and she was always happy and active. I attribute her great attitude and health to swimming ;-)

When my family and I moved out here almost 8 years ago, I wanted to share my love for and learnings about swimming, so I became an assistant coach for the Woodinville HS Boys team for two years and head coach of the Kingsgate Gator for a summer until our son was born. I love seeing swimmers' reactions when they experience the results of their hard work, from overcoming their fear of the water to hitting their goal time in a race. I look forward to helping you and your family enjoy swimming and feeling comfortable in the water.

Testimonials

    Lisa is phenomenal!

    I have 4 kids and we’ve been taking swim lessons from Lisa for a little over a year now, and I’m so glad we found her! Ever since we switched and started weekly semi-private lessons with Lisa, I can see a huge improvement with my older boys. She has taught them proper technique and the nuances of swimming that most instructors aren’t able to teach. At this point, they would probably be able to compete fairly well in a swim team setting if they chose to pursue that.

    My two younger ones, a 5 and 3 year old have learned in a year what probably took my older boys 2 years to learn. And the 3 year old is learning more about being comfortable in the water and being able to swim to an edge if he ever fell in. Lisa has helped him be extremely comfortable in an aquatic setting and is helping him learn basic safety.

    With something like swim lessons, you do get what you pay for. And I want my kids to be comfortable in the water, be able to survive if they need to, and I’m confident that my kids will be able to do that, especially with Lisa’s help.

    I joined the Masters swim program at Gold Creek Gym in Woodinville (not Gold's Gym, mind you - goldcreektennis.com) a few year's ago and it's the best thing I've done in a long time! Not having a swimming background, I didn't know what I didn't know! Under Lisa's tutelage, I can now do butterfly and backstroke which I had never done before joining. She's really good at teaching the technical aspects of a stroke, so as a result, I keep improving my freestyle times which is very inspiring. Even though some nights I'm exhausted at 8 pm to start practice, I ALWAYS feel better at the end of my workout. Lisa works us really hard, but she's also really good at bringing on new people and working with a variety of different skill sets.

    Lisa serves as my swim coach, but she also spent some time giving swim lessons to my 11 year old son. She did a really nice job explaining things so that they made sense to him and was great at motivating him to try new things (always a challenge). I trust Lisa as a coach for all swim related activities (indoor, outdoor etc..) plus biking, running and anything else athletic.

    - Jessie L.

    Lisa is an amazing coach and swim teacher. About 2 years ago she started giving private swim lessons to my then 13-year old son who could swim but had zero technique. He is autistic and she was so calm and patient with him. After about a year he decided that he wanted to try swim team at the high school. So she spent about 9 months (weekly lessons) working with him on all the different strokes that he was expected to know for swimming. He did do swim team at the high school and we can thank Lisa for instilling him with confidence. She was just great for him and easy for me to work with as well. I highly recommend Lisa for swim lessons.

    - VICTORIA B.

    Lisa is a naturally gifted coach; both for swimming and the sport of triathlon. She has a passion for swimming and thoroughly enjoys teaching others to be successful in this area. Lisa has extensive expertise with stroke analysis, understanding what changes need to be made to improve your stroke. She focuses on technique and has creative methods in which she breaks the bad habits of a swimmer and teaches correct form. Her passion parallels her dedication; ensuring that her swimmers reach potential. For me, my swim continues to improve, as Lisa works to make changes to stroke, ensuring I resist returning to bad habits and focus on good form. Whether the beginner or the experienced swimmer, I highly recommend her as a coach.
