Fumiko A. Our daughter has been taking swim lessons with several instructors and Berrin is hands down the best we have worked with! We've sen more progress in the pool after a few lessons than after many many lessons elsewhere.
Katie V. It has been an absolute pleasure working with “coach B” (as my 3yr old son calls her). She did an amazing job at building a nice trusting relationship with him right from the start...which is usually a struggle with him. She is very professional and responsive. I love that she texts me reminders each week. Her rates are very good especially for the quality of teaching she gives. My sons swimming improved immediately after 2 sessions. She also keeps me in line on remembering that pool safety is the most important thing and made sure my son first mastered floating on his back and being able to get out of the pool. I am beyond grateful we found Coach B! I would highly recommend her.
Sunny C. My youngest son is extremely afraid of water. His previous swimming lessons got interrupted by the pandemic. Coach Berrin was able to teach him using her pool and has been very patient and encouraging when teaching him how to conquer his fears and learning basic skills. She is nice and easy to communicate with. Thanks coach Berrin! -Sunny
Zhuying Gan Coach Berrin is very nice and patient with every student. She holds a very serious and sincere attitude to coaching. I love her contagious enthusiasm that motivates the students. My son became more involved and developed better skills in swimming because of coach Berrin!
Aiming (Macy) Chen Very happy with her coaching.
