I always was scared in water until I met Howard. He was very patient and sweet. He proceeded slowly so I felt safe in the water. In the beginning, I would panic. However, he got in the pool with me, which helped a lot. He gave me confidence and explained every step of the way. Now, I can swim a little. I am practicing on my own, and will take more lessons to improve further. Maybe I will swim with my grandchildren to show you can learn to swim at any age. Thanks, Howard, you are a great instructor.
