Personal vision:
Enjoy life to the fullest and start your swimming journey now!”


Like all Dutch children, I started swimming at the age of four.  After I had obtained all Dutch swimming diplomas, I went on to become a lifeguard. Now, during the summer, I’m voluntary Senior Lifeguard at Scheveningen beach in the Hague. I therefore understand the importance of swimming skills and want to help you enjoy the water as much as I do!

I study International Business Administration (IBA) at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. In addition, I am part of YPSC’s MT as financial administrator and I am also the treasurer at the Lifeguard Organization of The Hague.


Coaching Style:

I always work with the premise of confidence and trust. Particularly at the beginning, it is important for students to familiarize themself with both the water and the coach. I try to push the boundaries of my students within their comfort zone in order to increase their level of confidence. Only then, is it possible to make consistent, daily progress. Moreover, I believe that it is essential to enjoy swimming.



I mostly teach Water Introduction classes and therefore start with the basic techniques of the strokes. More importantly though, at this phase, is that the students start to feel comfortable in the water. I always find it awesome to guide students through their first lessons!

Water Introduction

Are you unable to swim, scared or challenged? Have you taken lessons before and failed? Or it has been a long time ago?

Stroke Introduction

You are comfortable in shallow water but are not able yet to perform all 4 basic strokes. This level requires you to have passed the introduction program, or you are able to perform a swim a backcrawl, and a single backstroke (froggy leg).


You can swim comfortably in shallow water, however, deep water gives you discomfort.

This level requires you to know all the 4 basic strokes and you have had swim lessons before.


Do you have no problems in deep water and could you swim more than one lane without pausing? Improve your swimming skills and stamina. Follow the advanced program for diplomas A, B, and C.
