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.

My son has loved his chess lessons with Atousa. He participates in his lessons with a friend which is a great competitive experience. When two teenage boys happily put down their gaming controls to learn chess with Atousa, it demonstrates the best evidence I can think of to the high quality of Atousa’s teaching.

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.

Hello everyone, my name is Danial Asaria and I am a professional chess player that has traveled across the world competing in tournaments representing the U.S. After achieving the master title at age 11, I have become a 5-TIME NATIONAL CHAMPION and am currently the NUMBER ONE 18-year-old on the west coast of the United States. In addition, I have played some of the best in the world including world champion Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura. My peak USCF rating is 2390 and my FIDE rating is 2340 awarding me the titles of national master and FIDE master. (top 5% in the world) I founded the Asaria School of Chess and have taught for three years in chess camps across the state with students ranging from 5-85 years old. One of my biggest teaching accomplishments is assisting one of my students to go from #117 in the country to #13 in the country (gained 500 rating points) for their age group in a matter of 5 months! In addition, one of my students went from 1700-2000+ in less than a ...

About Danial

At age 11 I achieved the title of Master, and since then have become a 5-time National Champion and am currently the #1 18-year-old on the west coast of the United States. Without chess instruction from the most patient, inspiring, and hardworking chess coaches none of this would have been possible

Very patient and exciting coach! My son is a beginner and only 9 years old but Danial explained everything in such an easy to understand manner that he was so thrilled after the lesson. Definitely one of, if not the, best teacher on the website.
Hannah
The best teacher I have seen on this platform! My kid has had many different chess coaches, but right from the start I could tell Danial was different. He knew how to explain every concept in such an understandable manner and took the time to make sure she truly grasped every idea. In general he is a very kind teacher who cares deeply about his students. Highly Recommend! She improved 500 rating points!
Jordan
At 34 years old I never expected to be taking chess lessons from a young prodigy who is 15 years younger than me. But I am so happy I took the chance. Danial has not only shown me the beauty in the game, but taught me life lessons that I have even used in my professional career. Each lesson really is specified to what I need to work on, and he can answer any single question I ask on the topic. The best teacher I have had in a very long time, and I would recommend him extremely highly. A diamond in the rough.

My approach to teaching is that the lessons have to be customized for each student. I start beginner lessons with exercises that help familiarize them with the movement of each piece. They will also develop a sense of the powers and unique abilities possessed by that piece.

My focus on intermediate and advanced students is to help them develop their tactical ability. Chess is primarily an exercise in pattern recognition. I helped them develop that pattern.

We will then customize the lessons based on the student's interests and the topics that I feel will improve their game. We will play over the games of the great grandmasters and develop endgame technique. We will utilize openings that promote tactical situations.

Finally, we will have a lesson on chess etiquette.

About Richard

Chess is an exciting game that provides mental stimulation. It is a good way to increase math and reading ability. It is also a good way to avoid Alzheimer's. I try to make chess instruction as interesting as possible. I will show the student how to build on their knowledge.
