Private Chess Teacher

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.

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.

At age 11 I achieved the title of Master, and since then have become an International Master (with 1 Grandmaster norm), 5-time National Champion and am currently the #1 18-year-old on the west coast of the United States. Without chess instruction from the most patient, inspiring, and hardworking chess coaches none of this would have been possible.

I began to play chess at 7 years old and after my coach ended our first class by saying, "Every champion was once a beginner" my youthful imagination ran wild and I was hooked. My early development in chess proved to be nontraditional where my structured classes provided by my school were supplemented by the aggressive, unconventional playing styles I learned from spending my weekends sneaking games in with hustlers at my local chess park. Yet learning these vastly different approaches to the game allowed me to become a more complete player, and after 6 weeks of practice, I could beat every kid in my class and almost defeated my coach. ...

Danial is a good instructor for very beginner too. He was so patient with teaching and good at making kid focus on his lesson.Although my son doesn’t speak English much, he could lead and satisfy my son with no problem.

Danial is a great instructor. He's able to understand your level and really guide your through the steps to improve your game. I am enjoying the classes and can't recommend Danial enough.
Salima Mussaji
Danial has been and continues to be an inspiration to my son. He encourages students to think for themselves and apply what they already know to challenge them even further. I am grateful that Danial is part of my son's life.

Chess lessons, for me, are unique in many ways. The main reason, is that I've always wanted to teach students the patients, skills, and techniques to achieve the levels they desire in Chess. Another reason, is I remember when I was a couple of years into my chess journey, those struggles to hit my goals. I've always wished I had more help back then myself when playing. I believe it takes a great teacher/student match to excel and create a strategy together. Then moving forward, it gives both of us the confidence to succeed together. Overall, I'd say my ultimate goal is to help others in any way I can in this wonderful game of Chess.

Ray is an excellent teacher of chess. I really am grateful I contacted him a couple of years ago. Since then I have gained about 300 more points added to my rating! Ray has a great method to making me see the whole board during play. Now I’m able to detect many opponent’s strategies. Highly recommend !

"I have been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve."
