COVID-19 NOTE: While our bridge clubs remain closed, I hope many of you are enjoying online bridge. If you're interested in private lessons, either as an individual or foursome, I can teach you on BBO (Bridge Base Online). Please contact me via e-mail at: if I can be of assistance.
My name is Kim Gilman and I love playing and teaching the great game of bridge! I live in Carlisle, MA and teach mostly north and west of Boston.
My goals are to help you learn useful techniques, meet new bridge friends, and go on to achieve success in the game.....all while having fun and enjoying yourself in class.
Students in all my classes are encouraged to enroll with a partner. One of the unique aspects of bridge is that it's played by a team of two, and many of the most interesting and fun challenges come from communicating with your partner through bids and the cards you play. It will help your game tremendously if you can learn with a favorite partner, although singles are very welcome and will be paired up in class.
