About Kuanlin

“You are only one swim away from a good mood”

My dad is a lifeguard trainer of the Red Cross Water Rescue Team. When I was 5, my dad used to take me to the swimming pool to train with lifeguards every morning at 5 am. Since then, I have learned swimming and some life-saving skills. 

I joined the swimming team at the age of 14 and won medals in swimming competitions from junior and high school. I started working and teaching swimming when I was 15 years old. I got a lifeguard license when I was 18 years old. Swimming is really a big part of my life, I have so many friends I met from swimming. 

When I am not in the swimming pool, I am an online tutor. I really enjoy working out in the gym and free diving. I have PADI OPEN WATER (scuba diving license) and AIDA 2(free diving license). When I return to Taiwan, I gather my friends and we dive together!

Coaching Style:

For beginners, I can understand some people’s fear of water. I like a step-by-step approach to help them learn how to relax in the water and teach them some simple skills, and make them fall in love with swimming.

For advanced swimmers, I can also teach them competitive swimming skills and improve their sports performance.


Depending on which aspect students want to improve, I can teach competitive swimming skills and life-saving skills. If students are interested in diving, I can also give some diving-related knowledge.

“In the water, you’re capable of more than you know.”
