I've taught Chess to kids/adults
Learn basic strategy
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!
We can talk about strategy and practice. The best way to get better is to play.
In the past, I have taught elementary school kids and some high school kids at the beginner level. I am a great chess tutor for beginner-level and intermediate-level players as I currently hold the United States Chess Federation(USCF) Candidate Master title with a USCF rating of about 2100.
