Nikos and Liv are amazing teachers. My daughter has autism spectrum disorder and has certain auditory sensory processing and textural processing challenges. They have given her confidence in the water and she looks forward to her lessons. The lessons are tailored for her and are at a pace that she can achieve whilst pushing her to do more each time.

Highly recommended! The boys love having Nikos as their coach! I have previously enrolled the boys with another swim school but I found their techniques too relaxed and thus after 10 lessons my son was still not able to swim. Nikos however, not only is he very punctual, he comes well prepared with the appropriate equipment and all necessary to stimulate the kids. He is encouraging with just the right amount of assertiveness that is how by the 8th lesson my son is able to confidently swim from the shallows to the deep end with the aid of just a kick board. We hope to have Nikos again when the weather gets warmer! Thank you Nikos

From the moment that Nikos start teaching my children (2 boys 12 & 7 years old) I observed that my sons’ swimming technique have developed significantly. They have learned how use properly different strokes: freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly. Nikos also help them to improved their confidence in swimming and now they enjoy being in water compared to the old days when they were scared of it.
I have observed during Nikos’ teaching that he can transfer his knowledge in a fun and enjoyable way and at the same time to make it like a normal swimming lesson. In the past I was disappointed by a former instructor whose ‘army drill’ teaching discouraged my kids from swimming instead of encouraging. As a result they became scared of water - not anymore with Nikos. He made them so interested in swimming lessons and general water activities that they sometimes do not want to get out of the water now.
I am grateful to Nikos that apart from improvement in my sons’ swimming skills he also shows them how to be disciplined, manage their time better and interact with people in a positive way.

I've seen such a significant improvement in my girls swimming in the short time they've been with Nereids and their dedicated instructor Liv. She is patient but persistent with them and offers a lot of encouragement. Swimming is one of those life skills you want your children to have and any means of making that happen is money well spent.

Excellent coaching! I enjoyed every lesson. Nikos always ensured every lesson was a challenge and constantly pushed me to do better to improve my technique. Highly recommended!!!

"I never thought I would take to water, as I never learnt to swim growing up.
After travelling around Asia, I felt I was missing out on the enjoyment of going to the wonderful beaches as I wasn't able to go into the sea.
Taking the adult swimming classes with Nikos has really helped in my confidence in the water. In a few short months, I have gone from treading water, scared to put my head underwater and holding onto the side of the pool, to being an intermediate swimmer, who can freestyle and backstroke with confidence.
Nikos's tailored way of teaching, focuses on your goals and how you can achieve these. His encouragement will always see that you get the best of the lesson and have fun whilst doing so. I am very grateful for having him as my swimming instructor!"

My first experience being in the pool was made easy by Nikos with his friendly ways.He is a patient and wonderful swimming instructor.
He has an endless stock of the most practical tips and techniques for improving one's swimming skills. Even with a class full of students he finds time and patience to creatively cater to each and every individuals personal needs. He never ceases to cracking us up with his humour. He ensures to urge his students with the perfect blend of encouragement and motivation.
All in all a very friendly yet professional and experienced trainer.

It was my first time learning how to swim. Me and my brother were really happy with Nikos. He has done a great job! I was able to swim within such a short time period before I flew to Dubai and became a cabin crew. Definitely tell my friends about it!
Ronnel Magdaluyo, Stanmore
Nikos is an excellent instructor. His intuition and technique is high that he has accommodated my daughters style of swimming to enable her to be interested in learning how to swim.
He has the patience to let my daughter learn in her own pace but gives good instructions that allows her to learn while having fun.

Caterina from the team came to help my son with his swimming. He has cerebral palsy and we were not sure about how things would turn out. Happy to say that Caterina was very good with him and he got over his nerves and did very well in the water.. great job Nikos, you sure know how to pick the right people for the job!
Suzie Wain, Coogee
NIkos is an amazing swim teacher. Both of my boys have had NIkos as a teacher and they both loved him. He has the ability to install confidence and bring out a child's best. He is patient and attentive and really listens to kids. He also really knows his stuff and I would recommend him to anyone who feels they need a teacher who cares about their children's swimming progress! Best of luck NIkos and just keep doing what you are doing!
