Chino: Alyssa Schemel 

Skill Expertise: Hello, I work with all kids aging from 3 to 15 years old. I mainly specialize in teaching free style, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. But I can confidently teach children how to begin to swim all the way into rules for competitive swim team. I look forward to working with you and your children. 

Chino: Senna Forkner

Skill Expertise: Hello, I hear your looking for a swim instructor. Look no further. I am the one. I am experienced with 3-years of teaching from ages of four and up and have experience with water polo. I played college Water Polo for two years at Mt. SAC. I am enthusiastic but stern. Safety is my fist concern but a swimmer is not going to learn without a little bit of fun and encouragement. Hope to see you soon!

Chino: Brianna Contreras

Skill Expertise: I have been swimming for many years and am currently swimming at a collegiate level. I find that learning basic skills, focusing on technique, and building endurance are important to enjoy swimming and to become a more powerful swimmer in the water. With hard work and dedication your goals; whether it be to strengthen your skills as a swimmer or recreation can be accomplished!”

Chino: Marilyn Villalpando

Skill Expertise: Swimming has been a part of my life for more than 10 years, 6 of them being with a swim club and 4 with my high school swim team. Since it was such an integral part of my life, I decided to become a lifeguard. Shortly after becoming a lifeguard, I started teaching swim lessons. I have been doing so for a little over a year now and it has been great. I love teaching children of all ages the basics of water safety and the proper techniques to swim competitively. I am able to teach them the skill necessary to be a great swimmer. I have taught kids of all ages ranging from toddlers to teenagers. I am a patient instructor and I'm very encouraging. I have had multiple students who were terrified at the start but after a while have grown used to being around and in water. Seeing improvement in their skill is the most rewarding part of the job. Not only is the ability to swim a crucial survival skill, but it can become something that they can find a passion in, as I did.
