Julie Halperin

Julie Halperin has been teachiing bridge for more than 10 years, and loves teaching this fascinating game. She is a Gold Life Master, club director and certified ACBL teacher.

"Teaching has always been my avocation. I have a degree in education and taught in the Philadelhia School system many years. I've taught most aspects of modern bridge, including beginner's bridge, 2/1 game force and defense. My aim is to help students "think at the table" and not just blindly learn and follow rules."
