As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...

Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.

I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!

Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

I am a passionate chess coach available for instruction of all levels. I have been teaching for over 10 years in many schools and training private students. I have helped establish top chess teams recently including NEST+M, PS33, and Success Academy.

Several of my students achieved highest performance awards - top 100 in the country, two of which are now rated as high as 2300. I have taught an advanced class with chess world champion Magnus Carlsen. I make learning and playing chess enjoyable and fun. I have achieved a Candidate Master title with FIDE and USCF ratings of approximately 2100.

I have a business degree in finance from Bentley University and have worked several years on Wall Street. I enjoy all aspects of risk management and how it combines elements along with chess. I love working with children and have a strong track record of making many strong relationships. You will not find a more dedicated coach. My average student gains 200-800 points in strength quickly!

The most important question a client can ask: Why me and not someone else?

1. My powerful program is interactive, convenient and affordable. I always look for ways to upgrade it and provide the best customer service - total satisfaction is guaranteed or you will get your money back!

2. There are many good chess players around the world, some of them are weaker and some are stronger than me. But it is one thing to play chess, and another teaching it. I believe I have special interpersonal communication skills which I use during my lessons to make it fun and understandable - especially for children.

3. I am not only a coach but also a leader who provides direction. I will not only teach chess but also show my students how to learn and advance on their own - such as learning to explore ChessBase, ICC, and other self development platforms. Using this method will allow students to develop their skills much faster.

Online Chess Teacher

I will conduct an initial meet and greet. Ask some questions about your level of play. To start with very basic lessons, so as to be overwhelming. I personally learned Chess, 42 years ago with my older brother as my tutor and he never let me win.
I began to hate Chess and feared to play my brother. Today, he refuses to play me. I've studied for 40 years to beat him.
I will ask the student if he knows about the fool's mate and strongly caution him to beware of it and urge him to never use it, if possible. It is better to beat an opponent with an honorable win than to win because of a cheap trickery. I will teach anyone of any level of play.
I enjoy beginners and intermediates because they are amazing when they learn something, the look of that moment when they grasp a deeper principle is highly rewarding. The game teaches live skills and boosts self confidence, while at the same time keeping one humble.
I want my students to learn at their own pace. If

"I enjoyed taking lessons with Mr.Siddharth. He was a really cool instructor I could talk to and easily forget about time. It's always good to be so engaged with what you are learning that you put all your focus into the subject, and he easily allowed that. I even went over time in my first lesson, we were both so engaged!

I highly recommend Mr.Siddharth as an instructor. I am a relatively advanced player, but I can see how his wisdom can transfer over to beginners and intermediates. I will consider even more lessons in the future. One small caveat was his small bouts of absent-mindedness (moving the wrong piece, forgetting what as the last move), but that never caused so much confusion I didn't know what was going on.

Overall, he doesn't disappoint. Book a lesson with him, and you'll learn something."

The only minor problem that occurred was that the video kept freezing every three seconds, making it difficult to understand what the instructor was saying. However, this may only be a website problem; my experience with Siddharth was enjoyable and educational."

Best of all, my chess has improved dramatically since taking just a few lessons from him. Friends that used to destroy me in chess are now on the receiving end!! Thanks so much Aaron.
