About our Teachers
OUR TEACHERS

All of the club’s teachers share the following qualities:

  • They have a passion and enthusiasm for the game, and wish to share and inspire others similarly
  • They are all EBUTA qualified
  • They are excellent communicators
  • They have commendable track records as players themselves
Giorgio Provenza
Giorgio Provenza

Giorgio is our most senior teacher and we are very fortunate to have him. Giorgio is Italian and is married with one son.  Before he started to teach he  had a career in law and finance. ("Proper jobs" according to his dad).  He is a fine player and a real student of the game analysing hands at every opportunity. Giorgio is an extremely popular teacher and his seminars at the club often outsell seminars  by world renowned bridge teachers and star players such is the  affection and respect that Richmond members hold for Giorgio.

Maxine Julius
Maxine Julius

Maxine has been teaching at the club for some years, she was mentored by that wonderful teacher Leigh Harding  who is responsible for the No Fear Bridge site. Dedicated and passionate about the game Maxine really cares and is often seen playing with her students to encourage and bring them on. In addition to teaching at Richmond, Max ( as she is fondly known) also directs and takes the immensely popular Supervised Play on Friday mornings.

Cathy Barley
Cathy Barley

We are very proud that Cathy is one of the teachers we put forward for teaching training with the EBU, and we were delighted to see her receive an outstanding assessment at her final appraisal. Cathy is married with two children and previously held a senior role in Sales and Marketing.  Cathy also tutors students in Maths. Cathy is an extremely popular teacher and club member and we are so pleased to see the progress that Cathy continues to make both personally at the card table and in her development as a teacher.

Tim Chanter
Tim Chanter

Tim first learned the game as a child and has been an active and successful tournament player since 2007, recently coming second with his partner Helen in the Life Masters.  He left his City career in 2013 to follow his twin passions in life of music and bridge. We are delighted that Tim was also put into the EBU teaching program by the club, receiving an outstanding assessment in his EBUTA appraisal.  He has personally updated our teaching methods and, thanks to him, we are now one of the few clubs in the country using the latest technology to teach our students.

Margaret Page
Margaret Page

Margaret Page is our most recent addition to our team of teachers, she is another who we have trained ourselves. Margaret has proved to be extremely popular with almost all of her students staying with her for the entire course. Her classes are always fun and her students are often heard roaring with laughter. In addition to teaching Margaret is now taking Supervised with her group of students. Margaret has 3 children and is also an excellent bridge players who enjoys much success at the club.
