Lessons will be personalized to focus on student's weaknesses and areas of needed improvement, as well as generalized chess instruction.

I have been playing chess for well over 30 years. I have taught one on one
children and adults for about 10 years. I have great patience when I teach
students never believing that any concept is too difficult to understand or
master. I have a love for the game that I want to instill in others
I have hundreds of chess books and have gotten to know lots of chessplayers
throughout the years. I do my best to have my students gain and UNDERSTANDING of the game rather than just rote memorization.

My students can expect a lesson that's full of fun, engaging and accompanied by a high level of passion and energy.
I'm result oriented and very dedicated to my students and provide students with a lot of constructive feedback during the lessons.
Lessons will mainly focus on students strength and weaknesses, through many different means. The lessons are supplemented by several materials: work book problems, live game play, analysis of student's own games, online resources, classic game review and much more. My custom lesson plans are based on the student's own background and experience. I am always committed to making each lesson fun and exciting!

Fantastic teacher, very professional and engaging. Cheers!

My 6 year old son loves chess and when I told him several weeks ago I would get him chess lessons for Christmas, he was extremely excited. He talked about it every day for weeks. I emailed Sam to confirm the lesson and ask him if we needed to prepare. Sam asked us to make sure we had zoom, which I replied that we did. I asked him what link to use to log on for the lesson and he never replied. The day of the lesson, my son was checking the time every hour, waiting for it to start. 40 minutes in advance, he set up his chess board at the dining room table and sat waiting. For over an hour I tried every way I could to figure out how to log on to the lesson. Called customer service twice and no answer. Called Sam multiple times, and his phone went straight to voicemail. Emailed; texted; everything to no avail. The lesson time came and went. My son is still in tears. I have paid for three lessons, and it appears this service is a scam or something. If this is in fact a serious business, I hope I can expect a refund.

...So had my 3rd zoom lesson online, was awesome!
Have a much better understanding of the game. Sam, is an excellent coach and knows his stuff-highly recommended.

"Sam is a truly fantastic teacher. I am a clinical counselor and very picky with giving praise to anyone in the helping and teaching professions, but Sam, who (among other qualifications), also has a psychology AND teaching background, has a gift of making children feel almost instantly accepted, cherished, and excited. He is patient, warm, strategic but flexible, always adjusting to my daughter's needs in an instant. Sam provides that perfect combination of inciting commitment and a disciplined approach to learning while allowing a child to grow in his or her own pace and have fun while doing it that most children need, and I can whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone."

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …
