Online Bridge Lessons
Online Bridge Lessons

♠   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!!

♠  These are just a few of the lovely comments and testimonials I have received from former and current students ♣ 

Thank you very much for your twelve lesson introduction to bridge course. The course was very well run with an easy to access zoom link, on-line support and a very comprehensive Beginners to Bridge Guide Book. Our group of nine beginners were evenly matched and very supportive of each other's successes and learning errors. The online homework was great fun and very addictive. I have moved from knowing practically nothing about bridge to playing games in less than twelve weeks.  Thank you so much Pat for your knowledge, patience and humour J

My experience so far, of learning how to play Bridge online has been very positive. In Pat, we have a brilliant teacher, who has worked very hard to absorb the finer detail of how to use the Zoom platform for her purposes and it really is an amazing tool. A

Pat has been very pro-active during lock down to ensure that we are able to continue our Improvers Bridge Lessons.   Lessons have always been a lot of fun, and using Zoom and Bridge Base Online we have not only been able to continue learning and playing bridge, we have also learnt new ways of communicating with one another.  R

I was already impressed with her teaching skills in a normal “Classroom” situation, but to have extended these and transfer them to an online situation demonstrates the outstanding qualities that Pat has. She was already a confident, competent, highly respected bridge player and teacher. She has now transferred these essential skills to her Online classes.  M

Pat is a great teacher and completely unflappable, even in the face of IT meltdown. She is very clear and consistent in her approach and has apparently endless patience with us beginners. Highly recommended  A

Pat has taught myself and my husband from beginners to now happily playing in Tournaments, from face to face classes to online during the pandemic.  We have become confident in playing with new Players and will be happy to join new clubs when we can.   Learning with Pat and other classmates is fun, interactive, and educational as well as adding to our skills.  We have made new friends during our leaning with Pat that we can now play with socially. We can not recommend Pat enough as a first class teacher L & P

I began to learn bridge in January 2020 at Pat's beginner class held at the sailing club, I enjoyed these lessons and was happy to transfer to the online classes she started very quickly once covid restrictions struck. Her face to face classes were excellent but learning online has been so much better, I have learnt far more quickly. The summer of 2020 I transferred to her improvers group and we have now become the advancers group. Apart from her lessons I now play bridge in online tournaments and in social games online. A very positive result of covid has been the online classes and I am sure I would not have the playing capability I have if we had stayed with face to face lessons. I would like to thank Pat for my new found pastime and the new friends I have made as a result. M
