Mah's Helping Hand


Mah Jongg Teachers,

As the creator of Mah Jongg Highlighters I want to share with you the benefits of teaching American Mah Jongg while using the Highlighters. These helpful tools assist new students and beginner players but will also assist Mah Jongg teachers as well!

How? Let’s set the scene. You have another class of new students. The NMJL card is overwhelming to your class at first. Students can highlight the specific hands they are focusing on and the two of you are focused and working through their individual albeit group lesson. As students pass through the Charleston and form hands, they can highlight one or two hands you’ve suggested they consider. No need for students to point with their finger. Their hands are free to move around the rack and pass tiles once their card’s hands are highlighted. The multi colored highlighters help students easily see the hands they are vying for. Stress and uncertainty are reduced as clarity and confidence take over when using Mah Jongg Highlighters. While you are teaching and helping students at different tables, seeing their highlighted hands speeds up your teaching time with each student as you will quickly recall what they are working on. You both can clearly see a hand highlighted in blue, pink, yellow or orange. When a hand is highlighted students won’t have to ask, “What hand or hands did you say I should be working on again?” Mah Jongg Highlighters help remove frustration from both students and teachers. Everyone learns differently and at a different pace. The Highlighters help give the opportunity to all students to easily keep up with the class.

I have sold hundreds of Mah Jongg Highlighters to teachers, students, visually impaired and dyslexic Mah Jongg players. I offer Mah Jongg instructors, groups and businesses wholesale pricing with savings up to 50% off retail. You can pass this savings on to your students or make some additional money per student for yourself. Be the first or one of the first Mah Jongg instructors in your area to offer Mah Jongg Highlighters to your students. They are washable and reusable. Kits come with a protective Sleeve to slide completely over the card and velcro snap closed. Cards are kept clean and safe from spills and food.

Mah Jongg is a game utilizing luck, skill, memory and strategy. There is so much for new students to take in the first few months. They will be able to focus on learning all the rules and nuances of this game. Students will be able to easily keep track of the hands they are following with the help of Mah Jongg Highlighters. They are a terrific tool while playing Siamese Mah Jongg® too!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions. I have included an 8 minute video for you to see how easy and convenient it is to use the Mah Jongg Highlighters while teaching! Click here to watch it.

All the best,
