Andrew Scott

EBTA Teacher Associate

I have been teaching beginners and improvers Bridge since 1985 at various Colleges, Out Centres, Leisure Centres and Bridge Clubs in Nottingham. I don't teach the Fast Track course(Impossible if your a beginner) or online(Its a social game), distance learning is ok and I understand the implcations, I've study with the OU, but you can't beat face to face for interaction and feed back, this game needs to be taught slowly with sound basic pricinples, its a game to be savoured and enjoyed :) I am based at The Nottingham Bridge Club (DBS check and a Trustee/President of the Club), where I run most of my classes and have done so for the past 20 years. A lot of the players I teach either go on to play at The Nottingham Bridge Club where we run beginners sessions to ease you in(in a gentle manner) or you may want to go and play at another bridge club(Local to your area) or you may just want to play socially at home, its up to you on how you wish to enjoy this wonderful game. I teach ACOL from first principles, in a friendly enviroment and I assume no knowledge of the game. The full course is 3 terms each of 9 weeks(September till May) I provide a work book of topics(One for each term) with notes and plenty of quizzes, so if you are interested in learning how to play please email me........... Andrew.Scott42@hotmail.co.uk ...........or contact The Nottingham Bridge Club and they will put you in touch with me(I'm always available for questions via email or just give me call) If you want to learn a 5 card Major system (Sayc or 2/1) please email me for details.

Andrew is extremely knowledgeable but crucially, is excellent at sharing that knowledge in simple, easy to understand ways. His classes are filled with his experiences (good and bad), and manages to put over what, to me anyway, is a difficult subject, in a very light-hearted way. I enjoyed learning ! - Anonymous

A great teacher - lots of experience of playing and teaching. - Stefka

I decided to learn Bridge when I retired 9 years ago and joined Andrew Scott’s classes at Nottingham Bridge Club. He’s an exceptionally gifted teacher and makes learning fun. His enthusiasm for the game really comes across. I’ve also attended his classes for improvers and again have found Andrew inspirational. - Sue
