Michael Elliott

 Director & Swim Teacher 

Mike is the director and  founder of Red Whale Swim School, but most importantly, he is also a  teacher. He grew up in Brisbane, Australia and has lived in the Geneva area for many years. He is married with  3 young children (8,4 and 2)  He is a strong advocate of children learning to swim at a  young age in an environment that children  are comfortable in. While many learn to swim teachers move up to coaching competitive swimming, Mike went the other direction and specialised in the teaching of babies and toddlers.  He is a terrible singer, so relies on the parents to bring the many children's songs into tune.
