    Do you love being in the water? It's OK, if you're not a fantastic swimmer. But you do need to be AWESOME at passing on to kids the knowledge we give you. We're looking for energetic people that are open to learning and have the ability to make learning fun. If you have a strong passion for working with children, then we're the place for you!

    We reward our instructors based on their performance. The more students you have on your schedule the more compensation you will earn. Keep in mind, your level of compensation will increase the more students you have on your schedule.

    Here's how it works:

    Your Base Rate = $20.00

    Your Private Class Incentive (1 on 1 ratio) = $2.20

    Your Semi-Private Class Incentive (2 on 1 ratio) = $1.10

    Max Rate (Base rate + up to 3 Private Class Incentives per hour) = $26.60

    And wait, there's MORE! We also offer a lesson bonus program. If you achieve a specified renewal percentage for the month, you have the opportunity to earn up to an additional $4.00 per hour worked. If you work 30 hours per week, that's an additional $120 per week on top of your current rate.
