Jodie Cox is a fully qualified and very experienced ASA level 2 swimming teacher. Her interest in swimming was stimulated by her own experience as a competitive swimmer. She volunteer coached with the Borehamwood Swimming Club in 2008 and has been doing this ever since. It was her love of swimming and her commitment to the club that encouraged her to gain her teaching qualifications and teach more long-term.

Through teaching swimming, she helps children to develop confidence in their swimming skills and to progress from complete non-swimmers up to a competitive level. She understands the fundamentals of coaching sport, is able to prepare and deliver teaching sessions and evaluate and run well-balanced swim lessons.
Jodie is bubbly and friendly. She has excellent communication skills and has the ability to relate very well to young children and adults alike in order to make them feel relaxed and at ease. She is enthusiastic and innovative in her approach to teaching and aims at making learning to swim an enjoyable experience for everyone as well as achieving the desired results.
