About Me

Hello my name is Joseph, I'm 26 years old. I'm an honest guy who doesn't smoke and rarely drinks alcohol and currently lives with my girlfriend in Bushey.

I have a laid back, fun & caring personality, especially towards children.

I cook everyday which i really enjoy, including my favourite meals like sweet & sour, spaghetti bolognese and anything with chips!

I've played electric & acoustic guitar for over 6 years and really enjoy it. I even have my Youtube channel, I also teach beginners how to play in my spare time. (Chords/PowerChords etc)

I love motorbikes having been riding since i was 16 years old, I have gone touring around Europe on a 650cc bike camping with my brother and father.

I also studied art & design in college so I love to draw and do artistic stuff such as fine art, painting, graphics & photography.

From being in the leisure industry for over 8 years i have found that i love being around children and helping people.

I have work as cover for a nursery for 4-11 year olds in Chorleywood which includes making breakfast for over 15 children and walking them to school.

I have decided to get involved with 'Childcare.co.uk' to offer my teaching & babysitting skills to everybody in and around Hertfordshire and to also get feedback from my customers so i can look to improve my service & skills.

My Experience

I was a senior lifeguard for 3 years which included lifeguarding a swimming pool and helping out with accidents from the football pitch outside.

I have plenty of experience dealing with first aid, having dealt with falls, bumps, cuts, heavy bleeding and Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

I currently have been working as a part time swimming teacher in varies swimming pools in Hertfordshire & also London borough pools.

I teach children with varies abilities/skills how to swim. This does include children with special needs such as epilepsy, Congenital heart disease, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the average naughty children.

Please note i only have experience of caring for children of 3 years and older. Unfortunately I have no idea how to take care of a baby, just to make that clear.

I also work in the gym and help people achieve their own fitness goals everyday. This includes writing out personal programmes for individual clients in the gym and in the pool.
I'm currently working towards a personal training qualification.

Joseph has been teaching my daughters (4 and 5 years old) for about a year now. He is a great teacher, very passionate about what he does, super reliable and he is very good with kids.
My daughters have made incredible progress since he started teaching them.
I can fully recommend him.

What can i say other than if your looking for a good swimming teacher this would be it, Joseph has a fantastic approach towards teaching children.
He has taught my daughter for over a year now and she always looks forward to her lessons and talks about Joe at home.
Joe has a very laid back, caring and fun personality.

We will continue to be going to Joe's lessons every week, the only bad thing I have to say is the numbers in the lessons due to the leisure centre itself.

My daughter has had swimming lessons with Joe for the past 1.5-2 years. She thoroughly looks forward to her lessons with Joe. He is very easy going and has a fantastic approach to teaching he children. My daughter has made fantastic progress under Joe's guidance. He is by far the best swimming teacher my daughter has had.
Keep up the good work Joe!

Joe teaches 2 of my children (aged 3 & 5) swimming. Prior to starting lessons with Joe, my children lacked confidence in the water and were not making significant progress with their swimming. Joe built up an instant rapport with them and they trusted him from the outset. They now look forward to their swimming lessons and respond well to Joe's teaching, making real improvement.
I would thoroughly recommend Joe as a swimming teacher.

My two daughters were making little progress in their weekly group swimming lessons so we decided to book Joe for 1 to 1 lessons for them both. What a difference! After half a dozen lessons the progress they made was fantastic! They achieved more in that time than they did in the previous 18 months in the group lessons. Joe is a lovely guy, a lot of fun and my daughters listened to every word he said. I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to a friend.
