What are your expectations in a basic swimming class?

Basic swimming class is could be challenging to students with zero knowledge in swimming or those with traumatic experience in the water. Student with basic swimming skill that he or she obtained from a swimming school will surely feel the advantage. They could also have different expectations.

It is important that the teacher knows the expectation of the students to facilitate effective instruction. Based on my experience in coaching, the students usually expect the following.

1. Teacher is approachable so that students will not hesitate to ask questions.
2. The instruction should be clear and lessons are organized.
3. Lessons are demonstrated properly.
4. Enough time to practice the lessons.
5. Being objective in scoring practical tests.

Your own expectation is maybe not listed. Share at least two expectations to help your swimming teacher delivers better instruction. Your expectation will be a great contribution to the success of your swimming class.
