I am a very active teacher. I typically teach between 5-10 different classes each week at several sites, from beginner through advanced levels.

My Teaching Philosophy

Open Classes

The following classes are open to all players.
Shuffle and Deal (in person) Every Wednesday, 9:00 to 11:00 AM Yorktown Bridge Club, Jenkintown, PA $10 per person This is a Supervised Play session. Come and play bridge with me there to critique and answer questions. No need to preregister, just show up!
Noncompetitive Suit Auctions (online) 7 Mondays, Jan 9 to Feb 20, 1:00 to 2:30 PM Online, using ZOOM $15 per class, or $90 for the entire series (buy 6, get 1 free!) I am going to run a series of classes reviewing basic bidding. This is ideal for newer players who could use a more in-depth look at bidding fundamentals, as well as more experienced players who want a review of the basics. First up: a 7-week program reviewing non-competitive suit auctions. This series will look at auctions that start with 1 of a suit when the opponents do not compete.
This is intended as a series of 7 classes, but each class will stand alone; you can attend individual parts if you want. Each class will be 90 minutes (instead of my usual 60), in order to have more time for practice.
I will also have additional optional practice sessions.
Please see the Class Description for more details.
NOTE: Proof of COVID vaccination is required for all in person classes. At this time, masks are optional.
