I'm a passionate chess player with an extensive knowledge of chess theory who specializes in teaching beginner/intermediate (up to ~1600 USCF) players of all ages. Lessons will be personalized to focus on student's weaknesses and areas of needed improvement, as well as generalized chess instruction. Chess is a great platform to improve critical thinking skills and one's ability to focus, as well as a great way to have fun. My lessons will help you or your children gain an understanding of the art of chess and improve your confidence and ability to play the game.

Kyle is very patient with my 8 year old. He was able to identify my child’s weaknesses quickly and begin to quickly improve his skills. I would recommend him as your son or daughters chess coach.

Instead of teaching common openings that everyone knows about, I can teach tricky openings that are filled with traps. I use many different openings on Chess.com and confuse opponents. I also teach tactics and am rated over 2300 on tactics.

About Hagen

Normally, chess teachers will teach you about classic openings such as the Ruy Lopez or the fried liver. However, I teach uncommon openings that are actually easily playable. If you are tricky in chess I strongly recommend you play my openings.

"I've taken informal lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 years or so. He does a great job at explaining the game of chess. He is very patient. I have been able to learn a few different openings and have seen great improvement in my games. It is apparent Dipankar loves the game of chess and has an avid interest in improving his own abilities. You won't find a better fit!"

"My first chess lesson with Atousa was WONDERFUL! Besides being a chess Grandmaster with a thorough grasp on the entire game, she was also personable, engaging, encouraging, and willing to work with me (although I am not a very good player yet). I thoroughly enjoyed working with her, and am looking forward to future lessons and becoming a better player."
