I teach chess in school settings and private lessons. The skill of students ranges from beginner to intermediate. Some of my students have ratings up to 1200. I can teach you at your home, at my home, or a public place like a library or coffee shop. A typical lesson will be an hour and include a quick chess puzzle, a substantive and level-appropriate lesson, and a challenge game with analysis. All lessons are very dependent on student level, and may include only some of those components.

About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. A couple years ago I began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people. I've recently moved to the Harrisbug, PA area, and am now teaching lessons here!

Thanks!
Josh

Hi there, my name is Siddharth and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, including private lessons, over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition. Recently, two of my students have won in their respective tournaments.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to make chess a fun experience while improving my students' technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

I have been teaching chess for over 10 years and my current USCF rating is 2170. I specialize in the beginner/intermediate levels (unrated-1800 USCF rated). Lessons are customized and catered to the needs and goals of each student. My teaching style revolves around creating a fun and interactive learning environment. Lessons involved opening preparation, middle game ideas and tactics, end-game preparation, and most important one-on-one game play with move-by-move analysis by chess master. Not only will you be playing chess in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of chess knowledge that will allow you to move rapidly through the ranks and crush your opponents. Let's get started!

About Alexander
My USCF rating is 2170 and FIDE is 2160. I played chess in both high school and college, winning many tournaments along the way. I have played in many international tournaments and competing in other countries is one of my favorite things to do.

Lessons are created according to the students strength but also their interest. A typical lesson consists of tactics, playing, and working through an aspect of the game (opening, middle game, ending).

About Evan R.

I love teaching and playing chess! In my opinion, there's nothing better for improvement than playing with someone who shares their knowledge and experience with you as the game occurs!

I won the U.S Open unrated division in 2009 as a sixteen year old, achieving a 1600 rating (300 points above the average USCF tournament player).

I teach openings, endgame principles and mid-game tactics and strategy! However, I like to keep emphasis on the fact that chess is a game, and for most beginners, it's far better to play than to study!

A typical lesson with me as a beginning-intermediate student might involve a brief opening study, where we work through an opening of your choice together and then play from the position while I point out tactics & strategy, followed by a study of the endgame we find ourselves in.

For beginners, we start with the basics and play together!

About Evan
I'm a career string quartet musician who loves both performing and teaching. I graduated with a Master of Music degree from McGill University in Viola Performance.

I've been lucky to have many amazing opportunities so far: I've performed in Carnegie Hall as a member of the New York String Orchestra Seminar; in Yokohama and Tokyo, Japan; and in Salzburg, Austria (the birthplace of Mozart!) as a member of the Milton String Quartet. I've also toured the USA and played in many parts of Canada. My favorite experience was winning the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, the largest competition of its kind in North America!

My teaching experience is quite varied. I currently teach group classes to 3rd-5th graders here in NYC public schools. I've taught chamber music to teenagers in Indiana University's Summer String Academy and to adult learner
s in Montreal.

To me, music is about community, and getting to play great music with close friends or family is one of the most rewarding experiences.
