Birthlight tutor - Julie Kamara

Aqua Baby Tutor

Julie Kamara, Director and Founder Of Funky Fish Swim School, is an active STA Baby and Pre-School Tutor and a Birthlight Tutor. As a tutor,  she has met many individuals who are keen to develop and extend their knowledge of parent and child swimming and this has made her realise that she would like to spread the Birthlight ethos and method to those seeking to embrace a deeper understanding in this area.  She recently tutored in Taiwan and will be Tutoring in China.

Throughout, her swimming career, she has sought to broaden her knowledge not only of aquatic techniques but also in the area of child development.  She is currently completing her third year of a degree in Child and Youth Studies.  She has recently completed Level 2 in Rhythmic Movement Training, which has given her more insight into the subject of reflexes and how they can impact children and even adults, throughout their lifetimes.  

Her own swim school, Funky Fish, has been built up using Birthlight principles at its foundation and its teaching practices at its core.  Both for herself and her teachers, classes represent far more than just a swimming lesson, they create opportunities to nurture both parent and child.  To help instil a love of water within the family and allow for windows of time to create unique bonding opportunities.

Her belief, is that children learn best when the whole body is involved i.e. emotionally, physically and mentally, it is a joy to create a ‘happy space’ for them to flourish.  She looks forward to many more years of teaching and tutoring in this wonderful environment.
