Our Team – Learn More About Who We Are
Leah has been playing the fascinating, fun, and fabulous game of Mah Jongg for fifty years. Like many of you, she fell in love with this game watching her mother at their kitchen table. Eager to spread her passion, she has been teaching the game throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area for beginners and experienced players alike for over seven years. While Leah loves teaching new students the fundamentals of this great game, she gets a real thrill from instructing more seasoned students on the nuances and intricacies each year as new cards are released. Privileged to have taught more than 1200 students, she feels so lucky to have touched some great people, enlightening them to this lifelong game.
Prior to teaching Maj, Leah has had various careers in the world of Social Services, Human Resources as well as the corporate world.
Arlene is very organized and detail oriented and keeps the business of running MahJonggMentor.com on track. She has grown children who are providing Arlene and her husband Gerry with grandchildren to enjoy and spoil. A Registered Nurse and Certified Professional Coder, Arlene performs Quality Assurance for an audit company. In early 2012 Arlene was looking for a new hobby and decided to try Mah Jongg. She quickly became “hooked” and plays at least once a week. Despite being relatively new to Mah Jongg, Arlene loves the game, due to the detail involved in play. She is excited to be involved in MahJonggMentor.com, so she can help others to learn and enjoy the game.
