Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

My teaching style is progressive and tailored to the individual student. Each lesson builds on what was learned before. We go over games that the student has played, especially losses to higher rated players. For beginning players and juniors I teach the fundamentals and build from there. Suggested books are Comprehensive Chess Course, for beginners, and Chess The Easy Way by Reuben Fine, for more advanced players.

Chris is an excellent teacher and he's really helped me improve my game. In one lesson he showed me an opening that I used to win against a strong player. We go over games that I've played and he always has helpful suggestions. I highly recommend Chris as a chess teacher.

My 8 year old son really enjoys his sessions with Siddharth G. His game and confidence has improved and I am positive it will get even better with additional classes. He appreciates how patient his instructor is and the positive reinforcement provided during the lessons. As a parent, I like getting updates on his progress and additional 'homework' (puzzles) he gets - definitely comes in handy during this quarantine phase.
We definitely recommend Siddharth G. to anyone looking to learn chess, improve or get to the next level.
Dominick M.
Great first lesson, I’m looking forward to many more. Siddharth makes you think and had me write the moves down, which helped me understand better. Highly recommend him.
