About Me...


I'm Mark Young

I'm an average everyday swimmer with decades of experience in teaching swimming. My technique is not perfect - far from it in fact!.  

I qualified as an ASA swimming teacher over 25 years ago and since then I have taught thousands of adults and children to swim.  I've taken nervous, frightened children and adults with a fear of water and made them happy and confident swimmers.   I've also turned many of average ability into advanced swimmers.

My depth of experience teaching swimming has taught me just about every trick in the book.  I have learnt the most effective ways to pass on the best practical exercises with simple teaching points that can help anyone learn and refine their basic swimming technique

I built Swim Teach to help complete beginners and average swimmers like you to address the most common swimming problems. Here at my website you won't find any 'tricks' or 'secrets'.  Just straight forward tips and advice in plain English. I get asked questions like:
