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

Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that ...
As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.
