Andrew (Andy) Sutherland: 


a former county and regional competitive swimmer, qualified life saving for swimming Teacher acting as life guard, assisting teaching, customer relations, advertising and computing.


Our daughter had previously taken part in swimming lessons without much success. Within a couple of sessions with Pattrawadee Swimming lessons we saw a huge improvement in her abilities and confidence. Pat has such a wonderful, gentle manner with the children and really nurtures and encourages them. Would not hesitate to recommend these lessons.
