Excellent swim instructor for nervous four year old?

Hi parents! Anyone have a recommendation for a really great, fun swim instructor for a four year old who, since birth, has been absolutely terrified of getting her face or ears even the slightest bit wet? I’m ready to resort to private lessons after not much luck with our public pool and sweet but inexperienced instructors. Would especially love a female instructor who could teach us in or near El Cerrito. Thanks so much for any and all recommendations!

El Cerrito Swim Center offers private lessons. Our almost-4-year-old was also pretty scared of the water (and getting his face and head wet particularly) and JUST started a swim class there, his first one. His teacher is Fiona and she is excellent. She's young and sweet, but extremely good with young kids--and my son blew bubbles for the first time on day 1!
