Sam's Teaching Philosophy

The best thing about bridge is the people who play it and the same is no less true about the people who are learning to play it. Spending two to three hours with a group of engaged, smart, enthusiastic players is just plain fun.

My approach to teaching is more that of a player-coach than that of a lecturing college professor. On the first day of our Beginning Bridge class, we establish a partnership that encompasses all the students, all the table hosts and me. We structure the class activities so that the mimic as closely as possible the conditions of a real BBO or F2F game.
