Every student that trains with me learns how to control the cue, strategy development, rule sets, and cue stroke. I have trained many students and take the time out to meet individual needs on a case by case basis. By the time we are done you will be a cut above the competition and a master of the basics of billiards.

In my recent years I have grown to love passing my tips and tricks on to other players and improving the overall climate. I have made it my mission to bring play

Matthew
Very good instructor, I have had two lessons so far with Lawrence. The first lesson he introduced me to the type of software he uses, he referred me to certain websites I should check out, like chessgames.com where we analyzed some master games in the opening that I play and an overview of what we would cover in lessons. My second lessons we worked on some tactics and some positions because I wanted to focus on more of my middle game. And he also helped prepare me for an upcoming tournament I am playing in by going over my openings. His explanations are clear, and he provides many additional resources to explore and study.

Lawrence is just awesome .. I am doing so much better than I ever dreamt I could. I a so happy to have found him! Thank you Lawrence
