Anyone living in Hertsmere will no doubt have heard of Michelle Vince. She is the hard-working councillor who champions those less fortunate than ourselves and seeks to improve the lives of all, irrespective of creed, race and wealth. We are unbelievably privileged that Michelle is now working for J9 Swimming as one of our swim teachers.
Introduced to us by her swim teacher niece, swim teaching clearly runs in the family! A fully qualified, licensed, level 2 Swim England swimming instructor, Michelle’s experience is extensive and varied – from teaching pre-schoolers and primary school children to parents and babies and adults. She is kind and yet will push a swimmer to achieve their maximum potential, if warranted. She is flexible and is fabulous with non-swimmers, including those who are timid of the water and/or who have special needs as well as with those who can swim well. We regularly receive fantastic feedback testifying to her empathetic skills, including this one, received just a few weeks after Michelle started with us: ‘Just wanted to say that Michelle is absolutely brilliant. She’s a wonderful teacher and R and O adore her. Also, their swimming has really improved too….’ (KM)
Michelle qualified as a swim teacher some 20 years ago. She is regularly DBS checked and carries her own personal swim insurance. She is a member of the Institute of Swimming.
Michelle has two children and lives locally in Borehamwood with her dogs and a horse.
