I've played chess since I was a young child. I remember being in the chess club at my elementary school, over 20 years ago! I've since led a chess club of my own and taught plenty of young students how to play. I'm happy to teach the basics - the moves and strategies of chess to the novice player.
I've played chess professionally starting at a young age in Turkey I've thought to all ages and 100+ students over the years. If you have passion for learning and want to take your chess playing to the next level you've found your teacher!
I have taught chess since 2009. I must say: it is one of the most challenging and delightful classes that I teach - I enjoy it immensely! I tell fun stories about how the pieces move to help kids remember what to do when it is their turn, and this has proven to be extremely helpful. As I continue to play and study on my own, I bring new tricks and techniques to my students each class. All the kids and beginner adults call me Chess-master Josh. I may not be able to compete in international grandmaster tournaments, but I am still pretty good! I play each of my students as Black or White without my queen (and sometimes an additional piece), giving them a huge advantage which helps them build confidence. Once they beat me without the queen, they get a chance to play me with her... and then, look out! Not one of my many students has beaten me yet when I play with my queen. But if one ever does, I will throw them an ice-cream party!
