Famous Taiwanese writer and television host Kevin Tsai said “I gave up learning how to swim at 15 because I found it hard. Until I met someone I liked asked me out for a swim at 18, I could only say I don’t know how to”.
You should experiment with different things at a young age without fear or else you miss out on so much just because you find it annoying or lazy at the moment.
You don’t only lose a chance with someone you like, you’re also missing out a chance to dive into the ocean. Swimming in the ocean is a beauty that non-swimmers won’t be able to appreciate.
Our Top pro – Vic Chen can help you appreciate the beauty of the ocean and let you swim freely along surrounded by sea creatures.
Let us introduce Vic
I am Vic from Taiwan. I started to learn swimming when I got into college, join the varsity team, and spent a year attaining my coaching and lifeguard licenses. I found joy in being a coach after since I started teaching my friends swimming. Therefore, I started my career as a coach and lifeguard at the same time, so I can teach more people how to swim. My students include both kids and adult. I would reflect upon myself constantly on my teaching style and find out more efficient or enjoying ways for students to learn. I want to use the free time I had when I came to Hong Kong, that’s how I started to use HelloToby and became a freelance swimming coach.
Why did you choose HelloToby?
In the beginning, I couldn’t figure out how to find students on the right platform. I’ve tried some platforms but didn’t quite get the results I wanted until I saw HelloToby. I slowly worked my way up getting positive review, the number of students exponentially increased. I have used it or 2 years now and it really helped me a lot in my business, and I will keep using this platform.
How did HelloToby help you to gain customers?
Through HelloToby, I was able to connect with different kinds of students without advertisement or actively recruiting them myself. As a freelancer, my resources and time are limited, HelloToby was able to greatly save these costs for me. As long as I have a mobile device, I can send quotation to potential clients anywhere anytime even after hiring.
As a Top Pro at HelloToby, do you have any recommendations for new pros?
1. Constant reflection on improving the learning experience of your students, and change your instruction strategies according to your students’ progress.
2. Be patient and empathetic. For example, some students need some time and guidance to get used to breathing underwater due to fear.
How do you stand out from the crowd among all other pros? What is the biggest selling point of your business?
I have over 10 years of instructing experience and have taught students of all ages. From kids in kindergarten and elderly, different teaching strategies for different students.
I am always patient with the student and can give constant attention, support to them.
I understand the struggles beginners experience firsthand since I learnt at a rather late stage in life. This gave me the ability to sympathize with them and give constructive advice concerning their progress or a certain posture.

Please prepare swimsuit/swim trunks, swim cap, goggles, towel. If the lesson takes place in a public swimming pool, please prepare a $5 coin for locker use, it is also refundable.

|[5-Star Review] Many thanks to Coach Chen, I went from someone that is afraid of being in the waters to someone that is proficient in freestyle. He has arranged strength training sessions before lessons and gave me resources from Youtube and textbooks to catch me up on speed. My biggest achievement does not limit to successfully to learn how to swim, and yet learning how to fully relax.|
|[5-Star Review] Very professional and patient when instructing. Was able to point out the student’s problem and correct their posture right away. I truly recommend him as a coach especially when he teaches the student about tactics and tailored made training plans, looking forward to the next lesson!|
