Dave's Teaching Philosophy

Dave loves the Face-to-Face teaching style...in part because students often bond in the process of learning.  Bridge school is another place where students make bridge friends and develop partnerships.

Taken from Dave's book:

"After several years of teaching beginner and intermediate bridge using the ACBL Series, I realized that students with limited past experience struggled significantly with the task of simultaneously learning the intracacies of bidding, playing the cards as declarer and reasonably defending the deal.  In particular, I observed that the demands of learning the fundamentals of bidding often adversely impacted their ability to study and comprehend the fundamentals of declarer play and defense. 

I concluded that part of the problem was that the students were trying to learn how to bid using a memorization process rather than a logical sequential thought process."

Dave began to present the basic bidding topics from the ACBL series in a somewhat different manner, consisting of forming a few basic questions to guide bidding decsions:  with each subsequent bid, the partners ask themselves and each other "Yes, No or Maybe".  

Incorporating a style of teaching known as 'Mini-bridge', Dave's system was further refined to the point that he developed and published his book/workbook series "YES, NO or MAYBE...A NEW WAY TO LEARN BRIDGE"
