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 60 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 ...

I have been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve.

Dipankar, is an excellent chess instructor. He currently teaches my 8 yr old daughter, and 12 yr old son. They are two completely different types of students however Dipankar has adapted to their individual personality types and the way that they learn. Dipankar is very knowledgeable and well equipped to teach young players and improve their skills. Dipankar has patience, and more importantly teaches them good habits that will help them far beyond chess. My children enjoy lessons with Dipankar they laugh and learn.

Very good coach. Really patient with the kids and the kids like him and are always keen to attend the classes

Self time to learn something new and relaxing. Knitting has been part of my life for over 25 years. I love to teach others something new and and bring them to a place of refreshing rest as they create. Adult Beginners and Intermediate levels are welcome.

About Melisa

I love to teach. I first learned to knit as a 21 yr old that decided to move to Norway from Kentucky to be with my boyfriend after I graduated from college. My mother-in-law taught me how over 35 years ago. Knitting is a great way to relax, it is repetitious so it is great for those with anxiety

I love to teach what Eddie Kantar calls "thinking bridge". One of the aspects of thinking bridge is ability to count hands: distribution of suits and points.

Another, is learning DEFENSE. Every bridge player, on an average, defends 50% of a time, declares 25%, and does nothing another 25%.

My gurus are above mentioned Eddie Kantar and Mike Lawrence.

About Sabrina Jacqui

I only took a couple of lessons from Sabrina, just to enhance a few sewing skills, but she was great. Very knowledgeable!
Jess H.
She cancelled on my tree minutes before our session. I didn't have time to hire someone new. This has ruined my holiday. I stayed home to finish a sewing project and now can't because it's too late to hire someone new. It's too late to fly back home. This sucks. I better get my money back.
Mirabelle
Sabrina taught my daughter in-home, she was always on time despite the distance and was very patient and respectful. We have a few other children and she was extremely welcoming to the little ones looking in on the lesson. She taught my daughter how to use a store-bought pattern and some sewing basics.

"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."
