Rolando "Butch" B.

Sacramento, CA

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Chess Teacher

My lessons are designed for children and teens with some guidance on how they
can use chess knowledge as a path to some college scholarships.

Chess is now inreasingly featured in the school system not only to develop student discipline, critical thinking and brain power, but social skills (which will have positive impact on the child's future).

About Rolando "Butch"

I am a family man married to my wife for 38 years with four grown adult children. I also teach my grandchildren at a young age to play chess because of the scholarship potentials it may give them as they develop critical thinking and brain power.

Very good instructor, I have had two lessons so far with Lawrence. The first lesson he introduced me to the type of software he uses, he referred me to certain websites I should check out, like chessgames.com where we analyzed some master games in the opening that I play and an overview of what we would cover in lessons. My second lessons we worked on some tactics and some positions because I wanted to focus on more of my middle game. And he also helped prepare me for an upcoming tournament I am playing in by going over my openings. His explanations are clear, and he provides many additional resources to explore and study.

Online Chess Teacher

I have been playing chess for well over 30 years. I have taught one on one
children and adults for about 10 years. I have great patience when I teach
students never believing that any concept is too difficult to understand or
master. I have a love for the game that I want to instill in others
I have hundreds of chess books and have gotten to know lots of chessplayers
throughout the years. I do my best to have my students gain and UNDERSTANDING of the game rather than just rote memorization.
