Hi, I am Phil O'Callaghan, I started Learning-to-Swim.co.uk in 2004. I have been a keen swimmer since childhood and have competed at club and masters level. I started teaching in 1992 at Shrewsbury Swimming Club. Since then I have had the pleasure of teaching many children and adults to swim.

My approach is to teach one-to-one giving support in the water and helping the learner overcome any fears they may have, helping them to feel safe and enjoy the lesson.
