Swim Instructor

Teach our Personalized Swim Instruction curriculum to classes of only 4 students!

In 1987, Jeff Kelly began creating the Personalized Swim Instruction curriculum. As detailed in the "Who's Jeff" page and "Personalized Swim Instruction" page, 2018 will be a regrouping year for our company. For the past seven years, Jeff has been dealing with health challenges and has been gradually decreasing the volume and intensity of the corporation to focus on his health. Additionally, 2018 brought an unexpected change in our relationship with the company from whom we have been leasing an indoor swimming pool facility for the past 23 years. As a result of the aforesaid health and facility rental issues, we are not in need of additional swim instructors this year. As also detailed in the aforementioned pages, we may re-expand in 2019. Therefore, if you are interested in a position as a swim instructor, please revisit this page in February of 2019 for an update.

Swim Instructor Requirements

No previous swim instruction experience or certification is necessary. You will be paid to learn our curriculum and enhance your swimming ability. In addition to small classes, we offer our customers professional instruction. These are the two main aspects of our services that set us apart from other swim instruction providers. Therefore, we are seeking educated professionals.

While we hire almost exclusively elementary education professionals, we do occasionally hire exceptional university juniors and seniors pursuing degrees in elementary education, secondary education professionals, and professionals with degrees in other humanities-related fields, such as social work and psychology. However, candidates in the latter three categories must have significant experience with children age
three to ten.

We believe that learning to swim is as important as any subject children learn in school. We require each instructor to gain an in-depth knowledge of our curriculum and techniques. Jeff Kelly and his team of “Instructor Mentors” will train you. These mentors will work with you to enhance your swimming and teaching skills throughout the summer.

If you meet the aforementioned requirements, please ask yourself these questions:

Do I enjoy working with children age three to ten?
Do I enjoy being in the water? Would I enjoy being in the water at least 20 hours per week?
Do I enjoy learning new teaching techniques?
Do I enjoy being challenged?
Do I graciously accept and implement critique?

If you can not answer “yes” to all these questions, then this job is not for you. We make no apologies for our candor. We are seeking people who truly love to work with children, enjoy the aquatic environment, have a passion for learning new teaching techniques, thrive on challenges and are not sensitive to critique. It is also important that you understand and accept the administrative component of this position. Specifically, you will be required to complete detailed "Student Ability Reports" (grade cards). While this administrative component is certainly less exciting than working with the students, it is an extremely important responsibility. As previously stated, we offer our customers professional instruction. That includes providing them with a professional assessment of each student's ability and progress.

Regarding the acceptance and implementation of critique, Jeff elaborates, "Though I began creating the Personalized Swim Instruction
program in 1987, and I am extremely confident in my abilities as an educator; I accept that I can learn something from everyone. Each year, I learn new and creative ideas from my instructors. I feel that my main strength as a business owner, employer and educator is my ability to listen to others and to accept and implement critique and new ideas. Therefore, I expect the same from my employees. Each summer, my goal is to surround myself with passionate, motivated and like-minded people. I accept that I can learn from you and I expect the same attitude from you. If this sounds like the kind of employment relationship that you would enjoy, please continue reading."

Please thoroughly review the information below before submitting your online application. After reviewing your application, we will contact you to schedule an interview. During the interview, candidates sometimes inquire about how and why Jeff started this program, where and when they would teach and how the training program is conducted, etc.
Hiring and training new instructors is only one of our many responsibilities. Therefore, we need to use our time efficiently. When we speak with you, it is important that we spend most of our time learning about you – not speaking about the corporation. Of course, we can dedicate some interview time for clarification of information you will read here on this website.

So that we can spend our time getting to know you, please thoroughly review this section of the website. In addition, please read Who’s Jeff? to learn about the history of our company. To familiarize yourself with the curriculum, please see Curriculum. Below, you will find all that you need to know regarding the training program and teaching schedule for this summer.

CPR Certification: To secure a position as a Swim Instructor, you must obtain CPR certification from a nationally recognized certification organization prior to your first day of autonomous teaching.

Summer Swim Instructor Training Program

This training program is specifically designed to prepare you to teach our Abilities 1 through 3 (Basic Safety and Freestyle). The instructors who teach Abilities 4 through 6 (Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly) receive additional training not itemized here. This additional training is very personalized. The amount of time required depends largely on one's ability to perform those strokes.

Friday of each week will be dedicated to:

1. Training in and testing of the administrative components of your role as a professional Swim Instructor. One such administrative component is the completion of detailed "Student Ability Reports" for each student whom you teach.

Swim Instructor Daily Schedules: Summer

The chart above provides you with an overview of the summer schedule. This section provides you with specifics regarding your actual daily schedule. For those interested in working during the morning and afternoon, a minimum commitment of 26.00 hours per week is required; by working 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. I also need a few instructors who are willing to work from 8:00 a.m. to 3:05 p.m. For those interested in teaching in the late afternoon and/or evening, we have a variety of teaching shifts, depending on your available starting time. Because many of you, who will be teaching in the evening, will also have a part-time or full-time job during the day, we require only a minimum of 7.00 hours per week, which is 1.75 hours per night. The chart below provides you with specific scheduling options. As you review the chart, please keep in mind that for most of these shifts, you are given paid breaks, which I explain in more detail below this chart.

Schedule Types Shift Options Hours\Day Hours\Week
Morning to Afternoon 8:00 am - 2:30 pm 6.50 26.00
8:00 am - 3:05 pm 7.08 28.32
 
Late Afternoon to Early Evening 03:00 pm - 05:20 pm 2.33 09.32
03:00 pm - 05:55 pm 2.92 11.68
 
Evening Only 05:20 pm - 08:15 pm 2.92 11.68
05:55 pm - 08:15 pm 2.33 09.32
06:30 pm - 08:15 pm 1.75 07.00
05:20 pm - 09:25 pm 4.08 16.32
05:55 pm - 09:25 pm 3.50 14.00
06:30 pm - 09:25 pm 2.92 11.68

As stated above this chart, please keep in mind that for most of these shifts, you are given paid breaks. The breaks are determined based on the number of classes you teach. For each four or five consecutive 35-minute classes you teach, you are given a 15 to 20 minute time period away from the students. You are paid for this time. The purpose of the “break” is threefold.  1. Re-group your thoughts and/or patience. This is your time to refocus yourself as you sometimes need a short time away from the intensity of working with students. 2. Refuel. You can use this time to consume an energy bar or drink, but it is not designed to be enough time to drive to the nearest food-store. 3. Personal Needs: Of course, you need time to use the restroom and/or re-apply sunscreen.

If your shift requires you to teach at multiple pools, we have scheduled 15-20 minutes between pools (30 minutes for some routes). We have carefully designed the routes to provide sufficient time to accomplish the above objectives of the break and allow you sufficient time to get to your next location. Again, you are compensated for this time and, in this case, for your mileage.

You may be curious at this point as to what we mean by teaching at multiple pools within the same shift. In addition to our indoor and outdoor facility, we provide instruction to customers at homes associations, country clubs and residences throughout Kansas City. Most of our customers at our homes associations and country clubs are concentrated in the South Johnson County region. The easiest way to understand the organization of pools is as follows:


Municipal Pools are “City Pools” or “Public Pools.”
We do not provide lessons to customers at these types of pools. Most of these entities provide inexpensive, low quality, large group “Parks and Recreation” lessons. Country Clubs are, of course, private corporations that have built a pool for the exclusive use of their membership and guests. Homes Associations are simply neighborhoods. They are called “homes associations”, "homeowners associations" or "property-owners associations" because those who purchase homes within this community agree to live by certain guidelines that are mandated by the association. The association consists of homeowners, who elect fellow homeowners to serve on the “Board of Directors.” The particular homes associations relevant to this discussion are obviously those with swimming pools. The “homes association pool” is owned by all of the homeowners within this association. Simply speaking, they all share the pool. It is not a public pool like the city pools. It is not typically open for outside membership like the country clubs. Only homeowners and guests are allowed to use the pool. Residential Pools are better known as “backyard” pools. These are privately owned, usually small pools built on a homeowner's private property.

Now that we have clarified the definitions of "pools", we will further explain how you might teach at more than one pool within a “shift.” The common application of this is the morning to afternoon shifts. Below is an example of how we have created a route for one instructor to teach at two different homes association pools within the South Johnson County region.

Example: Pool 1 is a large homes association. At 11:00 a.m., the pool opens to all homeowners and is extremely busy. Our contract with this homes association stated that we must be done providing the lessons by 11:00 a.m. Because it is a large community, we had two or three instructors teaching from 8:00 a.m. to 10:55 a.m. to accommodate the demand. However, pool 2 is a smaller community. The “bather load” or the number of swimmers using this pool is less than that of pool 1. We were allowed to teach at a time when the pool was open to all of the homeowners because we did not need use of the entire pool. Instead, we routed only one instructor to this pool during the times listed below. In accordance with our educational philosophy, the instructor worked with only four students during each 35-minute time period. Therefore, we used only a small section of the pool.

*Customer Satisfaction Bonuses

We are very serious about these bonuses! Our evaluation forms are not a generic “Are you happy with the instructor?” type. They have been carefully designed to educate the parents regarding our curriculum and teaching methodologies. The evaluation criteria are very specific and guide the parents through the scoring process to obtain the most objective evaluation possible. Receiving excellent evaluations from the customers will significantly increase your hourly wage as detailed below:

The customer will score your performance based on a 0 to 100 point system. For each evaluation in which you receive a score of 95 to 100, you will receive $2.00. Receiving a $2.00 bonus per student each session can increase your actual hourly wage by as much as $1.60 per hour. Example: If you teach from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day, you will work 20 hours per week, which is 40 hours for a two-week session. If you make $10.25 per hour, you will earn $410.00 per session (40 hours per session x $10.25/hour = $410.00). The average shift from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. consists of 8:00 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. (4 classes) and 10:40 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (4 classes). Thus, you will teach as many as 32 students per session (8 classes x 4 students/class = 32 students). If each parent gives you a score of 95-100, you will be paid an extra $64.00 for that two-week session (32 students x $2.00/student). $410.00 per session from your hourly earnings + $64.00 per session from your performance bonuses equal $474.00 of total earnings for the session. Thus, by dividing $474.00 by the actual hours you worked, you will have actually earned $11.85 per hour ($474.00 / 40 hours = $11.85/hour).

Lifeguard Leader \ Pool Manager

We provide lifeguards as an integral part of our Aquatic Facility Management services. We are seeking professional educators to mentor and manage our lifeguards. This role with our company provides an excellent opportunity to hone one's leadership skills without the expectation of being the sole manager from Memorial Day through Labor Day; and without the expectation of being "on call". When your shift is done for the day, you are done for the day! You will not have to solve staffing or pool-related problems before or after your shift as is the case with most pool manager positions with the public pools, country clubs and other pool management companies. Furthermore, you will determine your commitment level (20, 25, 30, 35 or 40 hours per week) as well as your specific availability. Do you have one or more hard-earn trips planned? Take the time off and enjoy! Have a regular weekly social night planned with your friends? Enjoy it. Via our online scheduling software, you will input your "time-off requests" (the term used in the software) but these are really "time-off-notifications" because we will approve them and the software will then show you as unavailable for those dates and times. We will hire accordingly, to ensure that we have enough Leaders \ Managers to cover all of the hours; so that no one member of the leadership team is over-burdened with the responsibilities. This will also allow members of the leadership team to trade shifts as needed. This level of flexibility will further lessen the burden for each leader, thereby allowing you to enjoy your summer vacation!

In summary, the benefits of a leadership position with Jeff Kelly inc. are:
1. You will earn supplemental income utilizing your experience as a professional educator and mentor.
2. You can accomplish benefit #1
without the "before and after hours" expectations usually associated with the role of a pool manager.
3. You get to determine your commitment level and availability!
4. You can trade shifts with other members of the leadership team and thus have flexibility that allows for spontaneity, as you enjoy your hard-earned summer vacation from the school district.

Requirements

No previous lifeguard experience is necessary. To secure a position as a Lifeguard Leader \ Pool Manager, you must obtain a lifeguard certification from one of the following nationally recognized certification organizations: American Red Cross, Jeff Ellis & Associates or Starfish Aquatics Institute. We are offering two American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification courses in late May. Please read the "Lifeguard" section below for the details about the lifeguard certification courses.

Compensation

Lifeguard Leaders \ Pool Managers: Compensation ranges from $9.00 to $12.00 per hour; and will be determined based on a combination of experience, interview, availability and degree\level of commitment.
