Why book a swimming teacher through Airtasker?

Swimming is a major part of the Australian way of life. With some of the world’s most beautiful beaches on our coastline, backyard pools in many suburbs and swimming regattas being some of the biggest events on local calendars, there’s a lot of fun to be had if you’re confident in the water.

However, swimming doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Whether you’re an adult who never quite got the hang of it or a parent looking out for your children, there’s plenty of need for swimming lessons across Australia.

Hiring a swimming teacher on Airtasker takes the hassle out of finding someone appropriate for the job. Simply post a task with details of the students, their ages and what your budget is. Our system will send this out to swimming instructors near you and you’ll soon begin getting offers to get you swimming.

Easy way to find swimming instructors

With Airtasker, swimming teachers reply to your ad, making it easy for you to find the right person for your needs.

Work to your budget

There’s a wide range in prices for swimming teachers, but with Airtasker you set your price upfront and only get people interested in working to your budget.

Hire the best swimming teachers

Looking for a five-star swimming teacher? Airtasker’s profiles make it easy to see which instructors are at the top of their game.

Find insured teachers

Third party liability insurance is in place for all tasks posted and carried out through Airtasker.

Top Swimming Lessons related questions

Do I need my own pool for private swimming lessons?

While having access to your own swimming pool can have its benefits, it’s not required. Some teachers will have their own pool that they are happy for you to use, while going to a public pool is a commonly taken option.

What qualifications should a swimming teacher have?

Although it’s possible to be a great teacher without formal education, there are nationally recognised courses run through the likes of AustSwim and Swim Ed. Supplementary courses such as those in life saving can also be useful and, if the lessons are for a child, having your teacher pass a working with children check (e.g. holding a blue card in Queensland) is a good idea.

How young can my child start swimming lessons?

Babies can begin going in the water as newborns (but obviously they will need to be supported and monitored), but many teachers suggest you wait until they are at least six months old before introducing them to lessons.

How long does it take to learn to swim?

This depends completely on your targets and a number of personal factors. No two people learn at the same rate, but you can speed things up by taking lessons more regularly (e.g. twice a week instead of once a week). A child who is scared of water will take longer to come to terms with swimming than someone who enjoys splashing around, however the skills they will learn are hugely important in Australia.

When should I stop swimming lessons?

If you are taking the lessons to be safe in the water, it’s important to note that there is always a little bit of risk in the ocean or in a pool. Having said that, a good rule of thumb is that you should be able to swim 100m unassisted before you give up lessons.

How much does a swimming teacher cost?

The average cost of swimming lessons on Airtasker is $40-$80, but bear in mind that you will need more than one lesson to be safe in the water.

Do I need a specialist licence?

For certain types of tasks, you may need someone who has a specialist licence and also additional insurance. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What do swimming teachers do?

Swimming lessons can be catered to the needs of you or your children. Whether your child has never been in the water before or you want the edge to compete in races, Airtasker has swimming instructors of all levels to match your requirements. 


Once you’ve outlined what you want, you can speak with a number of instructors to find the one who’s best suited to your goals. They’ll be able to give you lesson outlines and a rough idea of how many lessons you’ll need to get to where you want to be. 


Remember that the price you agree on is simply for the instructor’s time. If you need to make use of a public pool or to buy special equipment – whether it’s new swimmers or floaties – those costs will be on top of the task’s budget. 

Swimming lessons for children

As a parent, your child’s safety is one of the most important things to you. In Australia, this includes them being comfortable in the water. Swimming lessons for children will introduce your kids to water safety. From babies to school age children, lesson plans can be created to take them from using buoyancy aids to swimming on their own. 

Swimming lessons for adults

Not all adults learnt to swim when they were younger, but it’s never too late to learn. A few lessons with a qualified instructor will help you to overcome your fears and understand the basic strokes and breathing techniques. Lessons can also include tips on identifying rips and other dangers at the beach. 

Training for racing

If your child has shown a keen interest in swimming and is interested in racing, an experienced instructor may be what they need to shave a few seconds off their lap times. Depending on the teacher, this may include remodelling their swimming technique, practising turns and doing work outside the pool. 

Life saving lessons

No matter how well someone can swim, there’s always the risk of an accident. Knowing the dos and don’ts of life saving can save someone’s life without putting yourself at risk. These types of courses are particularly useful for parents and those considering becoming a pool supervisor.

Collingwood VIC 3066, Australia

Looking to learn the most basic survival swimming stroke possible so that I am more comfortable around water face down (and to stop making the thought of being in water more desirable). I can currently do the basic survival stroke on my back, but have never been able to do face down. Keen to really just hone in on that technique.

I am looking for an swimming coach to help me with breathing techniques and teach me additional strokes. I have a background in swimming but I’m still a beginner. My goal is to improve my breathing technique and learn a few more strokes. I have a pool in our building and we could conduct our lessons there.

Great lessons! Will definitely have another one. Thank you for your patience. Cheers!
