I have been teaching people how to play pool for 9 years and can tailor the lessons around whatever you are having trouble with. That might be pocketing object balls, controlling the cue ball, shot selection, game strategy, etc. If you're just learning the basics, then we can start with the rules and fundamentals and go from there! My goal is to have a fun-filled learning experience. So if you enjoy playing and would like to learn more, let's schedule a time that works well with your schedule!

Jay is a great instructor - very knowledgeable, talented and friendly. Learned more in my first 2 hour lesson than I thought was possible. Can't wait for the next one!

I grew up with a pool table in my house and still love playing to this day. I can teach you the basics of playing pool so you can win anytime you're playing with friends or while out, even up to how to do jump-shots and trick-shots to impress some people!

Rush is really nice and answered all my questions, he gave me tips and tricks, and different kind of photographs I could take. So if you're looking for a photography teacher then you have to give Rush a shot!

Rush is awesome! He broke down the camera into easy-to-understand steps and focused on areas I was struggling with. I learned a lot in a very short amount time.

Eddie definitely has my vote! I have not seen a more complete, detailed and easy to learn instructor as Eddie. I appreciate his perfectionist nature his and attention to detail. He showed me what I was doing wrong and provided easy to understand lessons. Most of all, practice, practice, practice! I'll be taking more lessons until I can become as proficient as the master. You will not be disappointed, I highly recommend Eddie as your next billiards instructor!

He was very helpful from basic fundamentals to showing me some drills I can work on. More importantly, it was fun & he is a cool dude.

I would like to offer pool coaching for kids/adults in learning the sport or improving their game. I've been playing since I was 8 years old, initially on a snooker table but since moving to the USA focusing on 8-Ball pool.

I've played APA league and competed against all the local teams in the area at the majority of different local venues.

Last year I joined a local pool competition, played 6 players both better and worse than my skill level and ended up defeating them all to win the competition and a free $100 pool cue!

In the last month I entered 3 pool tournament and won $260 + cash prizes, Happy to share insight.

What I hope to share here is how understanding pool, the strategies and the decision making process can help you defeat your opponent and NOT get hustled on the table.

Many of these skills learned can be applied to your daily life and help you in accomplishing your personal goals too.

Groups, couples or ...
