I am a very good chess player. I was trained by my father and many other family members on how to challenge even an expert at chess. I am also willing to teach the basic rules to those who have never played this sport of the mind before. I am willing to share strategies and secrets performed by experts. I will even demonstrate them.

About Danschnieder
Hello my name is Danschneider. I cannot wait to meet all of you. I have been teaching chess, singing, English, algebra, and basic Math since 2002. I am more than happy to teach in-home, or in-studio to anyone. I have been a martial arts practitioner since the age 15, in different martial arts reigning from Hung Gar kung fu, Karate, and my specialty the Filipino martial art of Eskrima. I have years of experience teaching drawing from basic line drawing, to shading, coloring, etc.. I write my own original poems. I have been working with two non- profit groups such as KIWANIS and S.I.P.A. Under KIWANIS I became more in tuned with different kinds of people.I'm also very good with the children and teens. S.I.P.A. was a program where I worked with children from ages 6-12. I might not be a parent, but I know how to keep the kids enthusiastic and
cheerful . I am willing to teach and work with anyone.

Experienced International Master ready to help teach how to advance to the next level.

About Florin
I am an International Master and 2015 co-champion of the State of Illinois. I have been coaching full time since 2011 and helping players increase their rating and get more wins!
If you have any questions at all send me a message and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Also if you do not see a certain time slot available you can check with me to see if indeed that slot is taken.

For lessons I typically use Dasher:

https://www.chessclub.com/download-software/dasher
and Skype (audio only).
You could try to use the iOS version (https://www.chessclub.com/downloads) instead but it has a few more glitches than the Windows version.

You can get a free 30 day trial on ICC (Internet Chess Club) after that it will be $10/month but it is the best chess server out there for finding the right kind of players.

Right now I
am only accepting online lessons, thanks for stopping by!

Florin is a great instructor. I asked my son (age 12) if he used any of Florin's advice/teachings in his latest chess tournament, and he said, "Yes! I used EVERYTHING he taught me." :)

What a great instructor! After six months of lessons I can say, without a doubt, Florin is the best instructor anyone could hope for. Florin is very knowledgeable and helped me improve my game more than I could ever imagine. He is patient and takes the time to explain difficult concepts. It is not everyday you get the opportunity to receive lessons from an International Master.

I teach chess in school settings and private lessons. The skill of students ranges from beginner to intermediate. Some of my students have ratings up to 1200. I can teach you at your home, at my home, or a public place like a library or coffee shop. A typical lesson will be an hour and include a quick chess puzzle, a substantive and level-appropriate lesson, and a challenge game with analysis. All lessons are very dependent on student level, and may include only some of those components.

About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. I recently began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people.

Thanks!
Josh

It was a bit hard to schedule a lesson with him because of our work schedule and his school schedule. He did mention it was finals week for him so i understand. We actually lost track of time and spend an extra 30 mins playing! It was fun! And i will schedule another lesson soon!

I have been coaching chess for 2-3 years now. What makes chess lessons unique with me is that I make the chess lessons exciting, fun to learn, I point out mistakes/weaknesses in a very kind way, I give good examples of moves/positions relate to real life, I teach people the psychology of playing chess, and I improve people's game through love and repetition. I teach several opening variations as well as middle-game and end-game tactics. But I focus on what people's weaknesses are and I make those weaknesses their greatest strength.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for 2-3 years. I am the founder of Martello Chess Academy. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1939 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 1983. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well.

I am currently coaching 7 students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating.

I graduated from Kutztown University of
PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matthew is very knowledgeable of the game. He is easily approachable and has the ability to connect with students of all skill levels as well as multiple generations. My teenage son was comfortable with him immediately and he is not always receptive to learning if the setting feels awkward to him. As for my own experience I received valuable insight into my own games after reviewing score sheets from tournament games and isolating those ever present blunders that seem to lurking on every chess board just waiting to be discovered. Anyway I give a hearty two thumbs up to my millennial friend.

Great teacher!

Matt is honest. If there is something he doesn't like about your chess game, he will definitely come out and say it. His criticism allows you to focus on that part of your game. You will be able to improve your flaws on and off the chess board.

Matt is also very competitive. If you beat him in a game of chess, it's like you've beaten him in a game of life. The day you've accomplished this, you will know the grasshopper has become the master.

If you're new at taking lessons, you need to start here, with Matt. I would highly recommend him to any chess player who is seeking to improve their game, beginner or advanced.

Matt is more than a teacher and mentor. He is like a brother to me. Over the course of the last two years, I've taken weekly lessons from Matt. I have not only developed a strong teacher-student relationship with Matt, but I have also developed my game through his guidance. Matt's approach to teaching is fun and engaging. I would recommend him to any aspiring chess players.

About John
Here goes...
I am a chess teacher, tutor, singer, and Shakespearean actor in NYC! I guess you could say I wear a lot of hats.

I graduated with honors in 2009 from New York University with a BFA in Drama. I've been professionally teaching since 2012, but I have always loved sharing the game of chess with anyone who wants to learn (just ask my friends).

Students can expect to face new challenges and to improve each and every week. I am happy to work with students of all different ages and experience levels. As a teacher in the New York Public School system, I know how to make chess simple and friendly enough for Kindergartners, Senior Citizens, and everyone in between! And as an active tournament player (current rating 2000), I can offer great insight into the needs of any skill level. I am thrilled to work with ambitious tournament playe
rs and those who just want to learn how to beat their friends :).

Chess is a wonderful, challenging game, but I truly believe that anyone can learn to play if they are motivated. Come work with me and discover your new obsession!

I first met John at an unrelated event, but he really got me interested in Chess, and it has become an activity that I really love and enjoy due to his instruction. John's lessons are engaging, substantive, and honestly fun, and he's helped me improve my game dramatically. John is a great guy and an excellent instructor, and I would encourage anyone with even a passing interest in Chess (no matter the skill level) to give him a try.
