Instead of focusing on rules and more rules (to which there are plenty!) I prefer to scale back and simply show people how much fun a TTRPG (Table Top Role Playing Game) can be if you simply learn the basics, let lose and have fun. While I do and will teach the basic rules to anyone, I strongly believe it is more important to jump in head first and get a feel for what a TTRPG is all about.
My sessions can and usually do begin with a quick recap of what you need to know... similar to when you open up a new board game and just need someone to quickly show you what you can do. However, I try to get you playing as quickly as possible so you can enjoy the time rather than sweat over the rules. This approach is great for any casual gamer including but not limited to young kids who usually have a short attention span and just want to play! This approach may not be for that gamer who has already played D&D or COC, but definitely perfectly suited to any teen or adult looking to get started.
In terms of how, where and when to play, I offer online games using a web link to a privately streamed game. It is formatted to look and feel like you were taking part in an actual YouTube experience such as the popular web series "Critical Role". Each player will receive a unique invite to join and will have their faces displayed with their names and character names beneath their video. This way, everyone can see each other and can easily identify who is speaking and what their names / characters names are. It's an extremely fun experience which is further enhanced with ambient sounds, background music as well as maps and other hand outs (all digitally provided).
Usually I like to do a quick 'tech check' several hours or a day ahead of time, with each individual to make sure there are no technical hiccups on the day we play. You will need to make sure you have the following requirements...
Everything else is provided including a premade character sheet, however, if you would like the extra experience of creating your own character from scratch, then we can work out a separate session to do so. Also, if you already know how to create one, or have a character ready, you can simply submit it for approval ahead of time.

A note on future possible locales... as the Pandemic slowly gives way to a more 'normal' life again, I will most likely begin to offer in person games in my custom built game room. This is something still in the works and as stated, will only happen when the time is right regarding Covid.
I like to keep it simple so rather than charge per hour I simply have the following charges...
Initial and future 2-4 hour sessions of play (character provided) :
15$ per player and I match players to form a group of min 3 players needed
65$ for a group of up to 5 of your friends
Character creation session (usually 1 hr + for larger groups):
10$ per player
30$ for a group of up to 5 of your friends
*Note: only characters of levels 1-3 no higher!
Advanced game play (for those who know how to play)
While I can run games for people that already know the game, these type of games tend to be time consuming in prep and are all very much personalized per group so rates can vary from same as above to slightly more depending on the size and complexity of the game or campaign.
