Knowledgeable, friendly, listens to you and caters the puzzles as per your requirement. Also, if requested to change the class date in case of emergency - she is very flexible with her schedules and alters the class date (instead of marking canceled - which Takelessons will deduct the amount). Glad I chose her for my son!

Very patient and detailed!

I have been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve.

Dipankar, is an excellent chess instructor. He currently teaches my 8 yr old daughter, and 12 yr old son. They are two completely different types of students however Dipankar has adapted to their individual personality types and the way that they learn. Dipankar is very knowledgeable and well equipped to teach young players and improve their skills. Dipankar has patience, and more importantly teaches them good habits that will help them far beyond chess. My children enjoy lessons with Dipankar they laugh and learn.

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.

I have been playing chess for 35 years. I play generally three times a week and win regularly. I have taught the game to over 100 people in my life. I mentor a number of young people who strongly believe that my chess instruction and the applicable thought logic lessons I inculcate have escalated their job options. I prefer students at the introductory levels to eliminate bad habits.

Besides being a chess Grandmaster with a thorough grasp on the entire game, she was also personable, engaging, encouraging, and willing to work with me (although I am not a very good player yet).

"My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars."
