My passion is teaching Pool, known as Pocket Billiards. Day and night, I think about how to teach pool effectively. I have developed a unique training game that enables rapid progress on technique, aiming, pocketing balls and cue ball control. Most of all, it’s lots of fun. Learn by scoring points, not by missing all the time. If you have any interest in pool, take a lesson with me. You won’t regret it. I’ll see you at the table.

The lesson price includes both your and my table time.

About Daniel

"my instructor Felicia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, patient & extremely helpful. I learned so much in the half hour class. She was able to improvise when I was missing an important component to my machine. She truly is a genius. I scheduled another session at the conclusion of my 1st class, but find I must cancel due to physical problems. I am disabled with severe arthritis & her class is on the 3 rd floor. She carried my machine up for me & I made it up the stairs but when I got home later that evening my knees were so swollen I had to ice them & take pain medication. I know I cannot do that again & will let my instructor know it is not het fault."
