Private Swim Teacher for 6YO at our home in El Cerrito

We are looking for a swim teacher for our almost-six-year-old and a few of his friends. We have a pool in El Cerrito and would love to have the teacher come here to teach the kids to swim.

We want to find someone who isn't just a great swimmer, but someone who knows how to teach young children, to make it enjoyable, fun, and safe.

Please feel free to make any recommendations. Thank you in advance!

We did private swim lessons last summer, due to the pandemic. We had a great experience with: 

Lisa Jablonski Clark, mzjablonski85 [at] She traveled to us with age appropriate toys, the lessons had a progression in terms of gaining skills and her communication with us was great.

HI! I have the perfect fit for you!  Contact Amy Bookout.  She is a certified swim instructor with over 30 years experience. She has worked with my kids and was terrific! An added bonus- when she isn't teaching swimming in the summers, she is teaching first grade so knows all about getting kids to buy in and feel safe and successful. I have also seen her work with adults who fear the water so she has a great patience and compassion. Contact: amybookout1 [at] or phone 510-303-5598
