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.

I'm excited o share my knowledge based on a combination of approaches of US CHESS SCHOOL AND SCHOLASTIC CENTERS and SOVIET SCHOOL AND STANDARDS incorporated with Eastern philosophy principles and original ideas that will help you to get a broader chess basis understanding and not only gain an advantage over the opponents but to get better control and understanding of decision-making processes and life flow principles.

I have been a teacher for 6 years, teaching in a school setting as well as online with elementary-aged students. With this experience I have learned how to cater to the learning needs of individual students. Because crochet requires a certain level of fine motor skills, I start at age 8. In my crochet lessons we will start at a level that is appropriate and work at the students' pace. My lesson plans involve creating simple projects as we learn various stitches that show off their new skills.

About Meagan

I have been teaching for 6 years and absolutely love helping my students. I have been crocheting for around 5 years and love to create a wide range of projects from ha

"Matt is amazing. My husband and I never played chess before and after only four lessons we knew all the basics and could play a game. We were so delighted with our progress that we signed on for more. Matt is fun, friendly and a pleasure to learn from."

"my instructor Felicia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, patient & extremely helpful. I learned so much in the half hour class. She was able to improvise when I was missing an important component to my machine. She truly is a genius. I scheduled another session at the conclusion of my 1st class, but find I must cancel due to physical problems. I am disabled with severe arthritis & her class is on the 3 rd floor. She carried my machine up for me & I made it up the stairs but when I got home later that evening my knees were so swollen I had to ice them & take pain medication. I know I cannot do that again & will let my instructor know it is not het fault."

"I have been consulting Dr. Ainslie Faust for online tutoring in the subject of astrology for the past two years. I won't see anybody else for my lessons.

She makes learning astrology easier because she breaks the subject matter down into simpler terms. She makes learning astrology fun because she is a brilliant storyteller.

I maintain my own astrology website, but I continue to educate myself about Astrology. When I need another lesson, I contact Dr. Faust. And I refer all of my friends to her as well.

She would be a tremendous asset to any organization."

5 Questions Every Jewelry Designer Should Have An Answer For

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair? She allowed all this uncertainty to affect her design work – she had difficulty finishing pieces she was working on, starting new projects, and getting …
