I have been a PBIA instructor for over 13 years as well as player for 20+ years. I am no magician, I cannot make anyone a better pool player! However, for those that are interested and motivated, I can provide the knowledge, guidance and tools for any player to become their own coach and maximize their skills.

About James (JP)

The great experience started with the first chat, well before the first lesson. I knew this was going to be very good, because he asked several pertinent questions, which let him know my general level. That way, he could already have a plan when we first met. Improvement is already evident after the first lesson. I plan on many more sessions with JP.

I teach embroidery, hand sewing and machine sewing to students of all ages. Beginning students can learn hand sewing stitches that are used in conjunction with machine sewing to finish items.

Embroidery is like painting with a needle and floss. Students can learn basic embroidery stitches to use on pre-printed kits or to create their own drawings.

Looking to play poker like the pros or maybe just a house game with friends? I teach all styles of poker from basic 5 card stud to house games such as daylight baseball. I also include betting techniques to help you get the most out of each hand. I started playing the game of poker with my father at the ripe age of 8. I have placed in the money in many tournaments in my life and have won countless dollars in house games across the country.

My passion is teaching Pool, known as Pocket Billiards. I have developed two unique training games that enables rapid progress on technique, aiming, pocketing balls and cue ball control. Most of all, they’re fun! If you have any interest in pool, take a lesson with me. You won’t regret it.

PS. I am an ideal teacher for children, with lots of experience under my belt.

PSS. Please note that the price here does not include my table time, which the student pays at the pool hall.

See you at the table!
