Above: The last "live" bridge tournament I attended pre-Covid in February 2020 -- the Presidential Regional in Sturbridge, MA. Yichen Yin and I won the Saturday Open Pairs. Looking forward to the return of in-person bridge. Until then, thank goodness for Zoom, Shark Bridge, & BBO!
My name is Kim Gilman and I love playing and teaching the great game of bridge! I live in Carlisle, MA and have taught more than one thousand students in the Boston area. Now, I teach students from all over, in online bridge classes!
My classes are different than the online lecture/quiz lessons. In my classes, every student plays hands to practice what you are learning. I use the amazing Shark Bridge teaching program which replicates what I did in-person: I give you the lesson of the day, and you play hands to practice. After each deal, you see all four hands "face-up" and watch me "replay" them talking about the important strategies to be learned.
My goals at 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.
What My Students Are Saying:
Kim has a wonderful teaching style, and knows how to relay information so that we can understand. She is always sooo well prepared! I am very happy that I got involved with her classes. Bernice F., Virginia Beach, VA
I hope you continue with online classes. They are terrific and my bridge-playing friends are amazed at my progress. Vicki O., Boston, MA
Yesterday I played duplicate for the first time in months and earned master points! I am thrilled, and I attribute it to your lessons so thank you very much.

My partner and I appreciate and admire Kim as a careful, sophisticated teacher who's also relaxed and funny. What a great combination! Julia F., Cambridge, MA
Kim is an excellent teacher, well organized, patient and clear. The best testimony I can give is that I will be signing up for more.
