I teach and play poker extensively. Winning at poker is a lot more than luck. It is about the skill of reading people, understanding incentives, math, and storytelling. When this all makes sense, you can win regularly in poker. I'll teach you how to win, and win consistently.

I have played a lot of on-line Texas Hold-Em. My biggest take was a 12k win. I understand the game from the basics to the more advanced techniques. I have worked for on-line sites, played many live tournaments, table play etc... THIS IS TEXAS HOLD 'EM ONLY. This class is directed more at the beginner and the "intermediate" player who feels stuck, unable to move to the upper echelon. This class is a stout review of the solid basics required to win more than you lose. That is, to come out ahead in the long run, instead of walking away at the wrong time, or simply playing bad hands or getting pulled into expensive pots on a draw (mistakes). If you understand any of this description, this class is for you. This is not a class for advanced players. I am an advanced player and such a pairing would be an attempt at lateral instruction and that dynamic rarely works in my experience.

I was a professional poker player during college. I played in a European Poker Tournament in Barcelona and was selected to play on the TV table. I am a native speaker of English with years of teaching experience. I have taught around the world in actual classrooms and online. I graduated from a top 10 business school in the United States, and my experience thus far is teaching finance, modeling, programming, and business English. I am conversational in Portuguese and Argentinean Spanish, and I am elementary in Chinese (basic conversational phrases, numbers, dates, time, etc.). I have a degree in Finance and Economic Consulting from the IU Bloomington School of Business, and I graduated from perhaps the most prestigious finance program in the world, the Kelley Undergraduate Investment Banking Network Seminar. I have taught professional Business English to global organizations such as the World Bank Group and IFC. I have a 170-hour TEFL & TESOL certification from ITA (International TEFL Academy). I have tremendous experience in financial modeling and Excel. I have taught classes in modeling, advanced Excel, SQL, and even web programming (Python, PHP, HTML, CSS, Javascript). I have built and launched web apps available on the Google Play store. I am a graduate of the Johnson & Johnson Finance Leadership Development Program and have worked as a senior financial analyst and manager at various Fortune 500 companies and PE firms.
