I am a passionate chess coach available for instruction of all levels. I have been teaching for over 10 years in many schools and training private students. I have helped establish top chess teams recently including NEST+M, PS33, and Success Academy.

Several of my students achieved highest performance awards - top 100 in the country, two of which are now rated as high as 2300. I have taught an advanced class with chess world champion Magnus Carlsen. I make learning and playing chess enjoyable and fun. I have achieved a Candidate Master title with FIDE and USCF ratings of approximately 2100.

I have a business degree in finance from Bentley University and have worked several years on Wall Street. I enjoy all aspects of risk management and how it combines elements along with chess. I love working with children and have a strong track record of making many strong relationships. You will not find a more dedicated coach. My average student gains 200-800 points in strength quickly! ...

Learning can be fun and rewarding. When I first started sewing 30 years ago I made many mistakes from not having the proper technique. My goal is to teach you not to make the same mistakes I did.

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." :)
Alex
We had great conversation in general and insights in chess. Florin is very engaging and great individual. Overjoyed to have met him. Alex
Kevin
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.

Her explanations are clear and in one case her diagram clarified my confusion. I learned, laughed, and left Amy having learned what I needed to learn. I am impressed with her and will call her again."
