TEACHING INFANTS TO ADULTS – AGES 6 months TO 92 years old

Who is Pearl Krongard?
My name is Ms. Pearl Krongard and I have been teaching swimming lessons for 45 years, starting with private 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.

We also teach swim lessons to individuals with special needs
We are equipped to teach individuals with special needs, including children and adults with autism, down syndrome, and cerebral palsy, swim lessons to help them learn the skills they’ll need throughout life to stay safe near water.

Contact us today with any questions or to setup a private swim lesson. Our Lessons are conveniently located for Columbia, Ellicott City, Fort Meade, Baltimore or BWI areas.

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.

    Ms. Krongard, I am a 52 year old man who
    has a fear of water but I have always wanted
    to learn to swim. Is this something you have
    experience with? What are you fees if this
    is something you would be interested in?
    Regards, Phil Geppi.

    Ms. Pearl taught my daughter to swim when she
    Was 3. She is now going on 8 and has been a top
    Swimmer for the past 4 summers at out local pool.
    Ms. Pearl not only taught her to swim but opened
    The door to a passion for the sport. Thank you Ms. Pearl!!!
    We miss you, Cecelia and Angela
