Like everything else bridge, teaching has also gone virtual. Several teachers in our district have already started offering online bridge classes. The most popular way this is being done is to connect students through Zoom, offer any lecture type presentations that way, and then keep Zoom open for audio purposes and connect to the Shark Bridge teaching platform. Want to see what it looks like? Want to learn to teach this way? Listed below are some online resources. If you want to further discuss this, or have questions, please feel free to contact Mary Miller, [email protected]

Shark Bridge Tutorial
Wes is a very active bridge director and teacher. He has been teaching bridge for many years in person, and is teaching almost full-time since the Covid-19 crisis. Wes has extensive online teaching experience using Zoom, BBO and his own teaching platform. His motto is HAVE FUN! He never forgets that Bridge is a GAME.
Wes believes in lots of practice, and his classes have more playing time than 'listening to the teacher' time. His beginner classes are intended for new players to 'get their feet wet', and see if Bridge is for them. There won't be a lot of 'rules' to learn; rather the focus is on playing the game and having fun. No partner is necessary; he willl pair people up.
