Ruta is amazing. I can't tell you how much I learnt in my first lesson. Extremely attentive, when she noticed I was getting tired we switched to breathing exercises. I loved my session! Thank you Ruta, see you soon! More...
Reply from Swim with Ruta
Thanks so much for your feedback Jasmine! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Ruta is an exceptional swimming teacher; she identified my strengths and weaknesses and helped me work on them with patience, encouragement and humour.
Ruta is simply amazing. She is the only one who managed not only to deal with my son since he was 3 years old (he is now 6) in the most patient and effective way, but also she thought him the most incredible swimming techniques.
A true professional with a kind heart .

Our daughter very much enjoys her swimming lessons with Ruta. She learned to swim in just a few sessions and we’re now working on improving her technique.
Ruta is an incredibly high quality teacher! Top notch!!!
Both my boys have been swimming with her for the last 6 months, she is an extremely impressive teacher and a lovely person so we are very keen to continue our lessons with her in the future. Ruta have been very engaging, very clear, and fun and I have watched the children progress under her tutelage, she is simply fantastic!
First of all she taught my eldest son who has various learning difficulties and provided such encouragement and patience and fun that he absolutely loved it, and he made such good progress considering his significant dyspraxia amongst other barriers.
My youngest son has been also swimming with Ruta for 6 months now, and he is just steaming ahead. The teacher keeps that cheeky boy on track, pushes him nicely, laughs with him, encourages him with a lot of passion and creativity – the whole experience of learning swimming has been brilliant. I can't recommend this teacher more highly!
I have to note that Ruta is very flexible with her time, she will definitely find the best time that works for you. More...
Ruta has been improving my daughter’s swimming technique and style since January 2018. My daughter made a lot of progress and has just progressed to the top swimming level in her school. Ruta is kind and patient and definitely has a way with children. She lays the foundations for “good swimming habits” and brings out the best in your child. I would highly recommend her. More...
Ruta has drastically changed my perspective about swimming as a sport, and I came to appreciate its effect on my physical and mental wellbeing.
She has a deep understanding of technique and makes each session stimulating and fun!I feel more confident approaching a body of water now,I get safety tips and improvement feedback and I am amazed with the difference I notice in my performance,since I started working on breathing properly both in and out of water.I leave the swimming pool knackered but smiling,so what's not to like?
Thank you Ruta,looking forward for the butterfly stroke now! More...
Ruta was conveniently located close to Beckenham Spa although works most of the time in Chelsea/South Ken. I found Ruta to be extremely flexible making herself available around my diary but also at short notice. Ruta is easy to get on with and has a warm personality. Ruta will either teach from the side of the pool although prefers to be in the pool assisting you more directly. I choose the latter approach and I believe this to be a much better way of teaching. I found it easy to pick up the steps in the stroke I was learning as Ruta tailored the lesson around my specific needs. I would highly recommend Ruta to others looking for lessons whether they be small children or adults. More...
I had 6 lessons with Ruta and am very happy with the results. At the beginning I had 0 confidence when it comes to swimming and would generally avoid it. I’ve now joined my local swimming pool and can easily swim even in the deep end without worrying I’ll drown. Ruta has been very supportive and patient with me taking things one step at a time and always encouraging me to push my limits. Without her support and reassurance, I’d probably still be trying to swim in the shallow end/training pool or I’d avoid it altogether. More...
Ruta coaches our 12 year old daughter (who is an enthusiastic club swimmer). She always makes sessions interesting and inspiring, has real recent competition experience (unlike most club coaches), and has a real love for passing-on her valuable lessons. Makes a real difference to the ‘same old’ sessions club coaching provides. Prefers to be in the water rather than teaching from poolside. Our daughter loves her sessions with Ruta. Reliable, flexible and accommodating as well as being really nice Also good for any adults thinking of learning, re-learning or rolling the years back and getting some coaching. More...
