about me

I've been the ABF National Teaching Coordinator for seven years, and I train teachers around Australia using Audrey Grant's Teaching Training methods. 

Have played bridge since I was 25, and have represented Australia four times.

Have owned a bridge club for 25 years, and written four books. Offer lots of lessons online. 

Played in approximately 15 US NABC's and all Aussie tournaments. No time to play as much as I'd like!

Online Presentations
I agree with Jeff. We are encouraged to use the best materials and methods in Teacher Training Programmes (your TAP and Australia's Teacher Training Programme, which Audrey Grant gave to me to use in Australia eight years ago). The best hands make teaching easier and illustrate the teaching points ...

Oh great. We'll meet in 2018!

JoAnn How proud I felt to read your comments about our comparatively laid back, highly organised Aussie tournaments, in particular the Gold Coast. We've enjoyed this for years! I'm the ABF National Teaching Coordinator, and was hoping to meet you at the Gold Coast, but it was not ...
