I am currently 21 years old and have had chess be a part of my life ever since my great grandfather had taught me how to play. I started my teaching career as a helper for my old teacher when I was 12 years old. I started doing 1 on 1 lessons and small group lessons starting when I was 15 years old and did it all through out high school. In college I volunteered at the local library and would teach chess lessons for free. I have experience working with students from ages 5-13 and still keep in contact with a few of my past students. I have a straight forward style and will not only teach your child chess but also discipline, curiosity, and thoughtfulness. I look forward to connecting and working with you.

Alec was very thorough with the lessons from the start and he seemed to have a set plan for how to progress next. He did not only teach the elements of chess but also trained in particular techniques and with "puzzles" for additional practice.

Vinny has given lessons to my son for 3 years in the Chicagoland area. He started in 7th grade. My son made the highest level of Wind Ensemble when entering high school as a freshman. I highly recommend Vinny. Vinny works on your child's school music and he also gives a lesson that you need to accomplish. Vinny is a likable person, great with kids, he has this "cool" vibe to him that makes you smile and the kids relate to him very well. I suggest you try him out!

Vincent was a great instructor, gave my son all the resources he needed at all times, was super flexible with scheduling and very dependable. Highly recommended!!
