Private 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.

As soon as you get to understand chess well, you'll begin to see it's beauty and depth. Each game is an adventure. I love chess, and that is my perspective of the old and romantic game of kings and queens. I also enjoy teaching it that way, as it makes the game fun to learn and play.

Online Chess Teacher

I have been playing chess for 35 years. I play generally three times a week and win regularly. I have taught the game to over 100 people in my life. I mentor a number of young people who strongly believe that my chess instruction and the applicable thought logic lessons I inculcate have escalated their job options. I prefer students at the introductory levels to eliminate bad habits.

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.

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!
Malvika
I have been learning from Dipankar for around 15 months and I like his teaching style a lot.

The sessions are fun and educational and although I was a total beginner, I recently got my first ever medal in a chess tournament.

"Aaron has been teaching my 9 year old son chess lessons. After several months with a weekly lesson, my wife and I are very pleased with his progress. At first we had our doubts about whether online classes would work. The truth is that we are very satisfied because the use of technology added interest for my son in learning. Aaron is very patient and makes the lessons enjoyable, with some humor. He has a teaching method that combines strategy and theory with a love for the game. That is the magic of learning and is the key to advance one's knowledge of any discipline. Now we play more and more competitive matches and his progress is very noticeable. We also appreciate Aaron's feedback about how each lesson went and tips to work on during the week to reinforce what was learned."

"Kyle is an amazing instructor! In one session he went over six or seven studies and allowed me to try and work out complicated winning ideas in different positions, and then showed me the correct ones and more importantly, the ideas that a chess player should take away from them. I can genuinely say that even in that one session, I feel like Kyle helped me substantially improve as a chess player."
