We certainly have, and it isn’t an easy service to find. Karen Gill, owner and swim coach of Theorytech Swim School, set up her private one to one swim school in June 2015. Her biggest desire to start her own business came after discovering the difficulty to find such an option available for her own children. Karen has always been an avid swimmer and hoped for her children to have the same opportunities to learn and progress in the water. After a little encouragement from her family, friends and teaching coach, she decided to get her qualification to become a swimming teacher. With a level 2 Swimming instructor’s qualification and a heap load of encouragement, Karen set up Theorytech Swim School, based in Church Lawford in Warwickshire.

Of course, like any business, it wasn’t an easy beginning. Karen has told us that she initially struggled with advertising and how to best promote her business. As any new business owner, it takes a little time and investment to get things off the ground and this is exactly what Karen has achieved with Theorytech swim school.

Karen Gill runs the swimming school on her own and provides private one to one lessons, for both children and adults looking for a tailored learning environment. So, not only does she run all areas of the business, but she is also the one who will be helping you out in the pool! This business-savvy lady teaches her lessons from a heated endless pool, which allows for adjustments in current depending on a person’s capability, as well as considering speed and stroke length. Her service has become very popular for parents wanting their children to learn how to swim. We can’t imagine a safer and friendlier place for our kids to develop their swimming skills.
Karen brings fun and laughter to her lessons, helping to build the confidence of all her students. She offers her services at an affordable price without faltering on the quality she provides. Karen wants to begin growing her business to be able to offer lessons to children of all ages; this will help to develop some super young, confident swimmers before they even start school! Not forgetting the adult students too; Karen has been looking at her business’ future growth to be able to provide lessons for all customers that enquire!

If you are based in the Rugby area, you may have heard of Theorytech Swim School. You may have come across Karen’s adverts for Theorytech in local schools and through other local businesses. She can also be reached through her Facebook Page, so we suggest you get in touch; expect a friendly and reassuring response! From the very first connection, Karen will help you feel comfortable and confident in her teaching ability. Theorytech Swim School provides a fun and extremely rewarding environment for anybody looking to learn how to swim, or simply develop the skills they already have. We are super pleased to have such a great service available in the Warwickshire area and Karen brings her kind and caring personality to the business owner community too.
