Application for a Swimming Teacher role
I have recently seen your advert for a swimming teacher and I would like to submit my CV in application.
I am a qualified swimming teacher and been qualified since (what year and with what swimming body?). My previous swimming teacher roles have been (where and when, brief description including who you have taught, kids, adults etc).
I am a confident communicator and I enjoy swimming. I like the challenge of teaching people to swim and showing how they improve through lessons. I have had the experience of teaching both children and adults and have taught groups of children who come from local schools also with varied and mixed classes and abilities.
I am flexible in my approach to hours and work and I am able to help at short notice. I love swimming and general exercise; I believe that you need to maintain a regular exercise routine as part of everyday life and for me swimming is a good all round exercise technique.
Should you be interested in my CV or have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer anything you wish to know.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application and I look forward to hearing from you.
