As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...
Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.
I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!
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.

We have a typical 7 year old. High on energy with zero patience. But Danial knows how to channel that energy into our son's lessons and helps him think strategically, analytically, and patiently. Our son's games have improved dramatically ever since he started with Danial. He has learned so many different startegies and techniques from him, and can easily identify them. Being so young himself, Danial is able to connect with kids at their level and make the lessons fun, yet challenging. Being so disciplined and focused himself, he is able to pass that on to our son. But most of all, he is inspiring. He always tells our son, "I did it, and you can too!". We couldn't have asked for a better teacher, and a role model. I highly recommend him."
In march 2019 they invited their friends to celebrate an Origami birthday party. Haggit taught the guests how to fold several models. The children had a great time. They were all talking about their experience the following day at school. I highly recommend Haggit for teaching and leaading Origami parties"

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
