Teaching Bridge online has never been EASIER!
What teacher's say about Shark bridge Teacher's Console
Donna Compton of Play Better Bridge
Game changer! Shark Bridge brings a new energy into online learning for the teacher and the student.
Albert Bender of Bright for Youth
Shark Bridge changes the whole dynamics of teaching bridge to students and adults alike. I call it a disruptive technology. I will never go back to teaching bridge with cards again
KIm Gilman of Bridge with Kim
My students love lessons in the Shark classroom so much, they are pleading with me to continue online even when face-to-face bridge play returns. Many have told me, "I finally understand!" The versatility of the SBTC, along with the chance for each student to always have the best hand for practice, is remarkable. There's nothing else out there that meets bridge teaching needs like this program.
Lynn Chapin of the Jersey Bridge Club
This thing is amazing. You can activate robots at all tables and set the level of the bots to match your students. Changing a hand to demonstrate how you might handle a slightly different layout is easy, on the fly, and be applied to all student tables with one click. There's so much more!
