Unless you are dead set on having a PBIA instructor, send me an email.
I have been giving pool lessons for over 35 years. Stroke, Fundamentals, Game strategy for 9Ball, 8Ball, One Pocket, Banks, you name it, I can help.
All lessons are help in my home in Delray on a 9 ft Gold Crown. Video recording available.
Charles...Tom Wirth is certainly a very good choice for lessons. I also live in FL, but teach full time all over the country (I will come to you, at no added expense). Like Tom, I also have a large following of very happy, satisfied students, of varying skill levels, from beginner to professional. The instructor review section here is a good place to start. Just make sure that you do your homework, before choosing any instructor...PBIA certified or not. Don't let price be your guide...let the reviews of the instructor figure highly in your decision. Try to talk to other students of the instructor. They should not be leery of giving you names and phone numbers. You can also PM people here who have recommended any particular instructor. I have several students in the WPB area. Also, I recommend to my students that they take lessons from as many instructors as they have the time, money and opportunity to work with! If you would like more information, or have any questions answered, feel free to reach out to me, by telephone, email, or PM here. Good for you, in having the desire to improve by seeking instruction!
