About the author
Benjamin Roberts is an experienced Swimming instructor, School Teacher and Lifeguard. He is happily married to Danielle and has two wonderful step-children, Corey and Kelsey and at the time of writing this bio is only three months away from the birth of his first child with Danielle. The family live in the United Kingdom in a small village called Llanharry in South Wales. Being a Swimming Teacher, School Teacher and Lifeguard is a wonderful combination as he understands fully how best to educate non-swimming children and adults in both water safety and the practises which are essential in the process of learning to swim. His methods, which have been perfected over many years, are different to that of many instructors. He focusses on the importance of teaching beginners about their own natural buoyancy right from the start through breath control practises and relaxation.
