From my observations, private swimming classes are probably the most appropriate way of teaching children or adults how to swim. Each child or adult trainee has a concentration and power peaks, as well as moments of distraction and weakness. During private swimming training session the concentration peak can be detected and prolonged in time, with the help of the swimming instructor. With the right approach, it becomes a pleasure for the student. Respectively, when the student needs relaxation or cheering up, the good tutor would notice, and introduce some lighter exercises or rest.
Based on my teaching experience, I prefer giving private swimming sessions for the following reasons:
Although I prefer training kids in private swimming sessions, I also teach beginners in small groups.
Unlike private swimming lessons, where the child trains alone with the tutor, sometimes in group classes there may be 7-8 kids or more. The benefit of group sessions for the kids is the opportunity to socialize, have more fun and make friends. The main benefit is the competitive environment of this format, with the kids comparing who performs better. On the other hand, group swimming sessions create greater distraction points. When in a group, kids lose concentration quicker than in private. Instead of paying attention to instructions, they tend to tease and play with each other.
Another important issue that comes with distraction is the increased risk of sinking under water. When teaching children in a larger group, it is harder for the instructor to keep an eye on everyone simultaneously. And students’ safety in the pool is one of the main priorities during swimming sessions.
Finally, some kids master swimming exercises faster and better than others. Having a single student struggle delays the learning process for the whole group.
