If you are looking for a top national chess teacher, with over a decade of professional full-time teaching experience, result driven, proven record and highly educated, look no further.
I HAVE RAISED STUDENTS RATINGS OVER 1000+ points in approximately 1year!! Please find another teacher online that can make that claim and also prove it! I have not found one yet. In this world you get what you pay for, so if you are looking for value, you have found the right chess teacher- welcome!

I'm a certified teacher and a national ranked chess player, with a 2100+ rating on ICC. During my 10 years + as a professional full-time chess teacher, I have taught OVER 1000 kids from grades K-8 and won many prestigious awards/trophies. Furthermore, I also have extensive experience teaching adults.

I graduated from the # 2 ranked university in the country
on a scholarship. I also served as the president of my university's successful chess club.

For many years now, I have been teaching chess full-time in south Florida to grades K-8. I really enjoy teaching and my school's team has won many prestigious national and local titles/trophies, under my leadership.
Furthermore, in the past few years, my students have placed in the top ranks, at the "Florida States Chess Championship," in section K-8. Additionally, my students have also won several 1st place trophies in many local tournaments.

My passion for chess is really manifested though my teaching style and it's never a dull moment when I teach. As a professional teacher, I’m very patient and focus mainly of each of my students’ individual strengths and weaknesses.
Moreover, I then customize a personalized curriculums for each of my students, once I have assessed them. Additionally, having a degree in psychology, from a #2 university allows me to implement many effective learning/teaching strategies for my students’ lessons.

I know how important it is to keep students engaged, therefore, I bring a high level of energy, dedication and fun to the lessons.

I have the credentials, experience and knowledge to maximize my student's potential.

Please inquire today.

I normally don’t leave reviews, but after gone trough a few mediocre chess teachers, we are so happy we found Sam and I wanted to take a minute to say that Sam is an phenomenal chess teacher, our children( girl and boy, 6 & 9 ) Love his lessons and have grown so much in terms of chess skill level. Sam is very professional, super patient and uses exceptional effective teaching methods. He’s the best chess teacher we have found in south Florida, after years of changing teachers! Thank you Sam!

About Timpla
Hello! You want to learn to sew? I'm Timpla and I can help you!

FEEDBACK FROM MY PREVIOUS STUDENTS:

"It was great! I learned so much about my sewing machine."

"Had a great time Timpla! I was able to hem my daughter's skirt and repair a shirt sleeve. Looking forward to next time."

"I definitely benefited from the class! Thanks so much!!!"

I LOVE helping my students conquer their "fear" of the sewing machine, which unleashes excitement about their potential to sew unique items for themselves and others.

I've been sewing since I was a young girl, learning from my grandmother.

My experience includes sewing women's and girl's apparel, home decor, and quilts. I decided to start teaching private and group lessons after receiving many requests from friends and acquaintances.

I look forward to helping you develop the
skills you need to tackle any sewing project.

About Tom
Hello everyone, I'm Tom.

I have always loved teaching people things that I enjoy, sharing my experience with others, and helping people realize their own potential.

I am a musician, a martial artist, and a general IT guru.

Music and martial arts runs in my family, and I was raised around them from a very young age.

As a child, I was always fascinated with computers, and had to know everything I could about them.

My teaching style is a bit unorthodox, focusing more on philosophy and personal introspection than traditional "memorize and practice" methods, and is very mind, body, and spirit oriented.

Feel free to ask me questions for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.
