Who is Pearl Krongard?
My name is Ms. Pearl Krongard and I have been teaching swimming lessons for 36 years, starting with group swim lessons. I have taught many hundreds of people the joy of swimming, and I have found my greatest satisfaction and success in introducing swimming to people for the first time.

What Pearl Does
I teach private and semi-private swim lessons, in the water with the student.

Why Pearl Teaches Swimming Lessons
I have found that private one-on-one learning is the fastest and most effective way to learn the fundamentals of breathing, floating and stroke.

How Pearl Teaches
I have developed my own style, with technique and methodology that works for each individual. My approach is very thorough and systematic and based on teaching specific skills in a specific sequence. My personality and style is very loving and patient, but also firm when needed. I work with the student (and parents) to tailor the swim lessons for each student.

Where Pearl Teaches
I teach at 2700 Hercules Rd. Annapolis Junction (Fort Meade), MD 20701 Click here for directions.

We will be adding a NEW location starting March 1st 2015
Courtyard by Marriott BWI
1671 West Nursery Road, Linthicum Heights, Maryland 21090

When Pearl Teaches
Times can be arranged on an individual basis.

    Ms. Pearl is the best swimming teacher I have has the pleasure of meeting. Her kindness and compassion for her students really shows and achieves results. My son can now swim with confidence in an Olympic size pool! He has taken previous lessons in the past but only Ms. Pearl has successfully taught him how to swim. My husband is next ;-)
