Dr. Pete Andersen is a leading authority and expert in drowning prevention and swimming instruction. All his content is based on never out-of-date physics and psychology of learning principles.

His “Teach Yourself To Swim” book and video series is being called the new science of swimming instruction. Dr. Pete introduces six new teaching methods and correct visual, verbal, and kinesthetic cues (feeling the water pressure) that are proven to get faster longer-lasting results.

Dr. Pete uses a unique system of easy-to-master one-minute steps any healthy person can learn to swim in only a few hours if they follow and master the sequence. He is the only instructor in the world with a Ph.D. in psychology of learning physical skills. For the first time he is sharing what he has learned from 55 years of teaching experience so we can shorten our learning process.

His mission is to save more lives by making his books and DVDs affordable, easy to read, and start learning to swim. The content is especially helpful for families who live in rural and low income urban and suburban areas with several children where there is no pool or experienced instructors.

His vision is to upgrade swimming instruction with his system, methods, and cues worldwide.

He has taught 1000’s to swim and 100’s to be quality instructors. He regularly teaches an adult non-swimmer to swim in one hour, and has been known to teach people to swim on the phone by altering their mindset and building their confidence.

Dr. Pete was a 5-time All-American at Indiana University and currently holds Masters Swimming World and National Records, and has 21 Senior Olympic Summer Games Gold Medals.

He provides accurate demonstrations of efficient skills broken down into his system so anyone can teach themselves or their children to swim. How-to picture sequences and brief descriptions make this a book/DVD series every family must have for a reference resource in their home library.

Each family member can learn at his/her own pace, improve their water safety knowledge, and know their abilities to avoid taking risks in unfamiliar places. And the best part is Dr. Pete is the instructor on your TV to demonstrate and teach families correctly.
