My Teaching

 I love teaching bridge. It's the same as any game; the more you learn, the more enjoyment you will get from the game.
I have been teaching bridge professionally for 17 years, both at the House of Cards and elsewhere and I am currently part of a NZ Bridge initiative to develop a standardised set of beginners' lessons for bridge clubs throughout New Zealand.  I have conducted several beginners' weekends at different clubs. It is a great way to learn.
If you are interested in talking to me about lessons for you and your friends, or your club, you can email me   or ring me on 033550643.  I am here to help.

Tina is an excellent and very professional teacher of bridge at all levels. I feel the secret of Tina's success is her great teaching ability. She can make the most complicated system easy to understand. We have enjoyed Tina's company and would highly recommend her. Our longevity with her attests to that.

Thanks for a well thought out and well presented class - for me both very enjoyable and interesting and potentially very useful!

Tina has the ability to involve everyone in this entrancing game and get them to see how much FUN this game can be. In May 2010, 14 aspirant bridge players started with the basics and after 10 hours of concentrated lessons over the weekend were playing rudimentary bridge by Sunday afternoon. Of those who took the lessons 12 began playing regularly. (The other 2 were overseas.) Tina then held a second beginners weekend in July. The success of these 2 crash courses can be attested by the fact that 12 beginners participated in the Club Champs with excellent results! Tina also held two evenings for more experienced players. Over 20 attended and praise for their tutor has been unanimous.  We recommend her teaching methods unreservedly!
