I am excited to return to in-person teaching this Fall & Winter while continuing with

online bridge classes! All my lessons are more than just lectures. I give an engaging

explanation of the day's topic, but then you will play deals to practice what you're learning.

Afterwards, you see all four hands as I review the best techniques.
