So you'd like to play the card game bridge? I've been playing since I was 10--and that's a long time! These lessons are intended for beginners or low intermediate players. I will take you from just knowing the name of the game, all the way to how to bid and play. I can do this one on one, or with you and a partner.

Can you learn bridge on line? Take a look at my reviews. 33 happy students, and counting--I'd answer "yes, you can"!

If you already know the game a little, and would like to do some playing--grab a partner and a deck of cards, and let's meet on line to play the grand daddy of all card games. It is an absolutely wonderful time. For these lessons, you'll meet my husband AND me, and we'll play bridge "virtually" with YOU!

Note: If you are a beginner-- I recommend either one 90 min lesson or two 45 min lessons for your first lesson. It will take that long for the first lesson. After that-- depends on your card sense. Most people seem to need 4-5 lessons ...

Knitting is a wonderful skill! From the practical -- such as scarves, sweaters, or socks -- to the artistic, learning to knit gives you a hobby that reduces stress, gives the ability to make your own gifts, and even earn a little pocket money! I have been knitting for over 20 years and selling my knitted creations for about 10 years. I can get you started with knitting!

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.
Ryan
Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.
