She is very patience with my daughter! Great!
Chloe
She said she couldn’t help me unless we were on zoom. No one told me this and I don’t know how to do zoom. So then she told me to connect to her on the computer and not my phone so I tried that. That didn’t work. So she looked at my screen and told me it was blurry. Then after all that we lost connection and she was unwilling to reschedule so I could actually get what I paid for which was help!!! All my other teachers on here have been good, but I can’t recommend jasmine as it was a complete waste of my money.

We gave a poker lesson with Athan to our son for his 19th birthday. It was the best! Athan was extremely responsive and well prepared asking us in advance what our son wanted to work on. He made it fun while learning many skills. Highly recommend Athan!

Looking to play poker like the pros or maybe just a house game with friends? I teach a few types of poker from basic 5 card draw to house games such as daylight baseball. We do not teach Omaha!!! I also include betting techniques to help you get the most out of each hand. I started playing the game of hold'em with my grandfather 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. So if you are looking to learn the game for the first time or maybe you want to refine the skills you currently have let's get started right now!

"Athan is a fantastic teacher and communicator. To shake things up a bit this summer, I arranged an online poker lesson with Athan for my son. I saw later that Athan's resume is super impressive -- Yale, Cornell, professional poker player, CEO multiple times over. So impressive, actually, that leading up to the lesson I was wondering whether he and my son would even be able to communicate with each other, and whether I was getting my son into something that was way over his head. I sat next to my son the whole time, and saw the whole lesson. Athan came in and knocked the lesson out of the park. He knew his "audience," was totally prepared, and said all the right things at the right times to keep everything clear, interesting and effective. Just as one example, at the beginning Athan asked my son a couple questions about his other interests (e.g. what do you do? do you play sports? like math?) and when Carter told him the answers, Athan memorized them. Then throughout the lesson, Athan kept analogizing the principles he was teaching to those experiences Carter had told him about. Amazing! I was blown away. Athan's not only an apparent master of his poker craft, but he's got real talent when it comes to communication more broadly. It's no wonder he's traveled so far."

"I purchased a lesson with Athan as a Christmas gift and received RAVE reviews from his student about the experience! He loved the interaction and the way Athan was able to tailor the lesson very specifically to hone certain skills. Athan was extremely professional, easy to interact with and overall a great instructor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve his/her poker playing.!!"
