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.

Come and learn WordPress and search engine optimization with me; I'll be your teacher that I wish I had when I was learning to develop websites and rank in searches.
As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...
Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.
I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!
Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that
As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward.
Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!
She's been teaching chess from beginner to advanced level for more than 10 years. She's been playing chess professionally Since 1996.
Becoming the world youth champion at 12 and chess Grand Master at 20, would have never been possible without receiving the best chess lessons from my trainers and coaches. Everyone needs guidance in chess, I’m here to share my knowledge with you.
Despite being a professional chess player since I was 9, I’ve been teaching chess since 2006 and started my own chess school in 2008.
Private Lesson is an excellent way to learn, implement and achieve desired results for ambitious players or children who want to start chess methodically. Also, it helps any chess player to improve his/her proficiency. My students range are from beginner to master level.
Atousa is fantastic!!! What an incredible
teacher/coach. Atousa inspires me and
is thoughtful and understanding. I look forward for another lesson. She is 5 STAR. You are lucky to have her on your team.

Atousa is a great instructor. Definitely recommend her to anyone looking to start playing or improve chess skills.
My teaching style is progressive and tailored to the individual student. Each lesson builds on what was learned before. We go over games that the student has played, especially losses to higher rated players. For beginning players and juniors I teach the fundamentals and build from there. Suggested books are Comprehensive Chess Course, for beginners, and Chess The Easy Way by Reuben Fine, for more advanced players.
I'm a patient and experienced chess teacher with 8 years of experience teaching children and adults. My teaching approach is practical and fun. We look at the chess games that you've played, and I teach the fundamentals of chess strategy and tactics based on these games.
I have more than twenty years of tournament experience, and I was awarded the title of First Category player by the United States Chess Federation, along with a rating of 2050 (Expert). I have tournament wins against master-level players rated as high as 2300.
Whether you prefer in-person or online lessons I will work with your schedule to meet your needs.
The best way to improve is to regularly play rated games, analyze the games with a strong player, and learn from the books and videos that are well-matched to your skill level. I provide advice on all these re
sources and have teaching materials prepared if you are interested in spending some time on them.
Please message me here at this site for more information and to chat about your needs and goals.
Chris is an excellent teacher and he's really helped me improve my game. In one lesson he showed me an opening that I used to win against a strong player. We go over games that I've played and he always has helpful suggestions. I highly recommend Chris as a chess teacher.
I've been playing chess for over 50 years. In school, I implemented training sessions to help build our teams into stronger performances. I started training students again 10 years ago and enjoy the opportunity to share the passion of chess. I also teach dance and have been trained in teaching concepts by my wife, a teacher with a Masters! Whether young or old, we can be successful in your progress in chess!
Bruce learned the game of chess in the late 60's, becoming a "Fischer Kid" during the 70's. In high school, he easily captured the team championships and represented his school until graduating in 1976.
He taught some of his fellow students to play and improve in their games during this time and enjoyed sharing his joy of the game with others. Although life has sent him in many directions career-wise, he has never strayed far from chess.
In addition to chess, Bruce has played semi-pro football and is also now a dance instructor. His understanding of working with body and mind to create the best you makes him a unique choice in mentoring young students about chess and life in general. His enthusiasm for life and the activities he teaches are contagious and he hopes that each of his students enjoy the time with him enough to "pass
I've been playing chess since I am 4 and coaching since 16. I think that chess should be extremely exiting, fun to learn. I teach people the psychology of playing chess, and I improve people's game through love and repetition.
Hi, there! My name is Alex and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching chess since 2006 and have loved helping my students increase their chess skills. My Elo rating is 2081.

I love to play chess and to teach beginners of all ages This game exercises the analytical and spatial awareness parts of your brain in ways that will strengthen your overall brain function.
I teach gospel piano and beginner piano, flute, chess and English/ESL.
Use your ears, use your fingers and all the other gifts God gave you to assist during your local worship service. I come from a long line (4 generations) of church musicians. I trained classically on piano and flute - and can teach the basics for both instruments across genres. I have also been a journalist for The Associated Press (gotta have a day job!). And have done grant writing work for nonprofits. I can help you improve your English writing and speaking skills. And I love to play chess (gotta have a hobby!). But when it comes to Gospel - you need a little theory and a lot of heart and soul to develop your musical ear! Come join me at my storefront church or we can meet up online. After you get the scales and common chord structures down, you'll be ready
