“I am very happy that the swim lessons of my son with Marc Quintiliani have been a wonderful experience and exceeded my highest expectations. Marc built a balanced, nurturing relationship with my son and further improved it during the past 8 months to the level that he eats his broccoli to keep these lessons going, and carries a water bottle just to look like his instructor. In addition, the progress in his swimming skills were always observable from week to week. He was so scared to try even floating when he started; now they are working on different strokes. Marc is one of the few people who is able to manage my son’s extreme energy level without any complaints and keep him interested for this long. It has been a pleasure to work with him as he is flexible, rarely cancels, and always on time.” – Selcen
