Coralville woman teaches swimming lessons from her garage


A private Coralville swimming instructor has a unique item in her garage: a swimming pool.

“I’m a full-time swimming teacher and I didn’t plan on that, but that’s what I do,” said Megan Oesting, who recently earned her masters in educational measurement and statistics from the University of Iowa.

Inside Oesting’s garage, 1400 Woolridge Dr., is a pool, decked out with a camera, mirrors and a flat screen TV.

“I can get five times more done [in the garage]than in a regular pool,” said Oesting, a lifelong swimmer and former head coach of the Iowa Flyers Swim Club. “We have mirrors on the bottom and the mirrors on the top and the underwater camera and the video on the side, so I can show them anything they want.”
