Back Stroke to swim
Back Stroke as an instructor
Elementary Backstroke on occasion
My name is Benjamin Arsenault, and I’ve been teaching with Mr. Bill Swim School since February 2021. I’ve been teaching swimming lessons since I was 15 years old (currently giving me around 3-4 years of experience give or take), and have taught for at least two other organizations thus far. My favorite stroke to both swim and teach is the front crawl, however I also occasionally enjoy swimming the elementary backstroke. I have always been great with kids (and super involved in swimming/water-based activities), so when I heard there was a job opportunity that integrated these two skills together, I knew it was a working environment that I could thrive in. I also remembered being quite fond of my experience taking swimming lessons when I was younger (something I progressed quickly in), and knew that if I could deliver the same positive experiences to other people, they’d have positive memories to look back on too.
A little bit about me :
I am a first-year university student attending UPEI (taking the bachelor of business administration program, specializing in accounting), and have a passion for boxing, photography, drawing, and love to watch movies (from any genre) with my girlfriend. I enjoy any activities involving the water (kayaking, swimming, canoeing, etc.), and have from a very young age. Being a swimming instructor has always meant a lot to me, and has introduced so much stability and responsibility into my daily life since the very beginning (and is a job that I have always loved doing, from day one).
