What is the best type of swimming lesson for you?
One to one, two to one or group lessons?
There are many worries for a parent when seeking swimming lessons – will my child(ren) be upset, what if they do not like the teacher…! A key dynamic to seeking lessons is whether to have a group, one to one or two to one lesson type.
The answer is multifaceted, however here are a few points to consider (for and against) each session. Please note, these are generic points, what may be listed as a con here may be a pro for you – vice versa.
One to one lesson
- Attention is completely focused on the one swimmer
- Progression tends to be quicker
- Can be used as a short-term fast track to transition into groups
- Costly – you are paying for the exclusivity
- Do not have a social side with other children
- No peer learning/socialisation
Two to one lesson
- Social interaction with another swimmer of similar level
- Peer learning
- Progression tends to be quicker than groups
- More expensive than groups
- If parents want their children to swim with a sibling/friend but they aren’t of the same level then this can be counter productive
- Ratio of max 1:4/5/6
- Peer learning
- More fun learning with others
- Less one to one tuition – Core Aquatics approach ensures that more one to one tuition is given even in a group setting
- There is still individualised attention but less than in 1:1 or 1:2
