About the Learning Center Process & Team…..
Phil, Perry, John, David and Stick have formed a partnership to teach players of all levels, all over the world. We have developed a systematic, effective approach to determine the best checker plays and cube decisions.
Our lessons are carefully planned and customized for each student’s level of play and needs. Everyone has holes in his game; we’ll find them and fill them.
Books and articles are great, but we put them on steroids and save students years in their journey to improve. We teach several new strategies and techniques to guide you to the right decisions that you will not find in any book or article.
The effectiveness of our approach is proven by the success of our students–many have gone from Beginner to Intermediate, and from Intermediate to Championship in just a few months! You can read their stories and see proof of their success in the testimonials section on this site. We currently have over 60 students world-wide. We provide free Webex so that students can see our computer screen and talk freely over the internet. Sessions are recorded for future review. No special software is needed–just click on the link we send you and talk over the internet.
Students receive articles, learning tools, and exercises between lessons, and permanent copies of guides which will be useful for many years.
You will see SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT in your game and WE GUARANTEE IT. Any lesson you take is FREE if you don’t see how it will immediately improve your game.
Private lessons are $50 an hour for beginners and intermediates and $100 per hour for Championship-level players. We can place individuals of similar skill into small groups at discounted prices, and we offer discounts to high school and college students and the disabled.
Note: A portion of our lesson income is donated to the United States Backgammon Federation (USBGF).
