Ace Bridge Teaching

♠   My lively and fun online Bridge lessons are fully interactive, and I teach using a combination of Zoom Web Conferencing using Powerpoint presentations, we can access No Fear Bridge (NFB) for bidding practice in class and students play online during the lesson using teaching tables in Bridge Base Online (BBO).  Homework assignments are provided on NFB enabling you to practise playing between lessons.   ♣  

I am an EBTA trained teacher and I teach Duplicate Bridge using the Bridge for All syllabus which is recommended by the EBU (English Bridge Union); delivering Beginners and Improvers classes up to Bridge Club entry level, and I also provide refresher and revision lessons. For those students who are local to the Deal area, you would then be welcomed as a member into Ace Bridge Club.  If you live outside the area, then I shall provide you with a personal introduction to your local Bridge Club at your request.  

The teaching lessons are 2 hours in duration, and we also take a break midway for refreshments although as I am currently only teaching online - you do need to provide your own biscuits at present!! 

For more information, please email me on acebridgeclub@yahoo.com
