I am a former Industrial Engineer and technology executive who found teaching to be a rewarding activity in my retirement. After a time of teaching at the University of Virginia and Charlottesville area public schools, I began private tutoring in the game of bridge. Bridge is a life-long pastime for me and I enjoy passing that enjoyment onto others. Having played for over 40 years and competed in tournament play at the local and regional levels, I currently direct a duplicate game and teach beginner and intermediate classes at the Charlottesville senior center.

Bridge

I offer a series of eight one-hour classes in beginner bridge and a number of classes on various topics of intermediate bridge. I use the Zoom.com meeting software with very clear instruction and sample hands utilizing PowerPoint presentations. I also use the Bridgebase software game to monitor and comment on actual play.

Excellent bridge tutor

We have never played bridge. Ken was very patient and extremely well prepared. His slide presentation was extremely helpful. We will be taking additional lessons.

Knowledgable and experienced

It was lesson #1. He has outlined the basics. After we complete his package, I have every expectation that I will understand the game and be able to play Bridge due to Ken's tutelage.

A Skilled and Patient Teacher

I am delighted having Ken as my teacher. Ken thoroughly planned for the leasing, even sharing a a PowerPoint of the lesson which serve as both a study and review guide. The rules he teaches will no doubt improve my game. He’s also very patient and has a nice teaching style.

Knowledgable, organized, clear and fun teacher.

Ken is excellent. Moves along at the correct pace for me, goes step by step and communicates very clearly. He provides printouts that are helpful and clearly knows bridge!

Really knows his stuff

Ken worked with me on several forms of doubles and stayman. People in my club use all of these forms and I am now starting to recognize them and adjust my bidding.

Great Bridge Teacher!

I just started learning bridge with Ken 2 weeks ago. His method of teaching is great! The way he breaks down the complexity of bridge is really helpful for a newbie. He's very clear and patient. Highly recommend.
