About The Instructor


Hello there!  My name is Brad Hurvitz and I’ve been teaching ISR swim lessons in San Diego for the past 7 years.  I’ve taught more than 1,000 children to swim, float and self-rescue in the pool.  I come to the pool everyday with a smile on my face because I feel extremely lucky to spend my time teaching children one of the most important skills in life.  Every child is my top priority and I do everything in my power to ensure they are successful and the entire family has a positive experience during lessons.

Prior to teaching ISR swimming lessons to babies and toddlers.  I graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and received an MBA from Oregon State University.  Spending my time helping others has always been a priority to me.  In 2009 I ventured to rural India to teach at a boarding school for 5 months, shortly after I started a nonprofit company (Trek to Teach) that improves the educational opportunities for students in the rural Himalayas of Nepal.

Combining my passions of helping others and swimming were simple to do once I watched a local ISR Instructor teach my niece.  Her skills progressed quickly and her confidence flourished.  I knew that I wanted to learn the ISR process and become an Instructor.

My wife and I are both from San Diego and attended each other’s 5th birthday parties.  We reconnected after grad school and now have 2 wonderful daughters who are both great swimmers.  You can find us at the beach playing in the sand or at local rock climbing gyms.  I am looking forward to teaching your kids this year!

Brad is amazing! Patient, calm and great energy.

“My daughter felt comfortable learning from him right away. She learned quickly and by the end was swimming and getting air on her own. We will be taking them again to develop her stroke and continue learning.”

We had such an amazing summer with Brad!

“Both my 2 1/2 year old and my 15 month old took ISR swim lessons with Brad. By the end of our lessons, my oldest was swimming across the pool, getting air when he needed it and getting to the side easily for safety. My 15 month old was able to turn onto his back and float in order to get air and also orient himself to the side/step then swim/kick there to get to safety!”

Brad is possibly the most amazing teacher ever, period.

“From day 1, he was able to make my son feel so comfortable. Within a few days, my son was already making significant progress, and was beginning to swim by the end of the first week. By the end of the six weeks, my son who was terrified of the water before is swimming across the pool.”

We LOVED our experience with Brad at my baby swims and ISR.

“The method of teaching babies and toddlers to swim is so amazing, and the results are nothing short of astounding. Our children are having so much fun in the water, and we feel so safe knowing that they have the skills to help themselves should an unthinkable accident happen.”
