Have you ever wanted to learn to play bridge? Did you play it years ago and want to come back? This series of eight bridge classes will help you do just that! You will learn how to bid, how to play, how to defend, and how to find a local club game or tournament. No prior card playing experience is necessary — just a willingness to think, plan, deduce, and work in harmony with a partner.

ACBL Accredited Teacher
Anyone can teach you how to play bridge but only a few can teach you how to win. I'm a Ruby Life Master and used to write the bridge column in the Sunday Nashua Telegraph. I started playing in college in 1971 and my first job after graduation was on the ACBL Bulletin staff.
I've devoted a great deal of my adult life to studying how the best players in the world win. If you're willing to learn the game away from the table, I can help you reach your maximum potential against the strongest players at tournaments.
I'm available for playing, single-table, or classroom instruction.
