I am an avid chess player. I am a 3rd category chess player. I am part of the Chess Federation in Peru and USA. I can teach little kids as well as to people who want to improve their openings, middle game, and endgame. My Rating is 1500+.

About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

I have experience teaching young students, including children and can create fun and inventive ways of teach beginners the basics of chess.

I've been playing chess since I was about 10 years old and I've taught several other people the basics of playing chess, including small children.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Melissa was the perfect teacher for my child. She's warm, engaged, patient -- and very skilled. I think my daughter continued with her piano instruction only because she enjoyed her classes so much! If we hadn't moved an hour away, we would still be going to Melissa. She's awesome! I highly recommend her.

Exceptional gentleman and very professional. Arrived ahead of time 5 minutes which is ideal and took time to chat with Clyde which is fantastic. Clyde enjoyed the time with Austin and is already looking forward to next Sunday. Perfectly executed Austin!

About Kris J.

Close

Would you like to learn how to play this beloved strategy game? Do you want to learn how to think 10 moves ahead? Chess is more than just a game, it's a life-skill and is part of critical thinking. I'd love to share my experience with you.

About Kris
I'm a pretty laid back easy going guy. If you want to learn a variety of things, check out my subjects and I'd be happy to help you.

I have quite a bit of life knowledge and experience that I'm willing to share. I see myself as more of a tutor, helping students along the path to get better grades and understand their subject material better.

Some things to expect during a lesson: We will go over the material and find any areas you are struggling with. We will hone in on those areas and get to the root of the issue, then build you up so that you have a solid base of understanding and can grow from there.

I hope we can partner to enhance your education and knowledge.

Every student learns chess differently, so Chess has to be explained differently. I use a combination of different methods and activities that I believe are unique amongst other professional chess coaches.

Want to learn Chess? Don't want to find judgemental teacher like your school/college professor? Look no further.
I'm a college student who has great knowledge of chess (played for 18 years, competitively for 13). I've been working as a teacher for 2 years. Im fluent in English/Russian/Ukrainian.
What I will give you/your kid is a good/great base, make him enjoy chess. In my lifetime I met teachers who push their kids too hard that kids eventually drop enjoyment from chess. I know chess can be challenging and will try to provide you with great opportunity to learn, without breaking your limits and make you regret you took this class. I was a victim of losing my interest to chess because of one such teacher, so for me its important that when you leave my class, you still enjoy what you are doing.

What I'll be covering in my classes:
Beginner- basic chess moves, simple logical and thinking development, referencing or showing different openings (giving both theory and practice)
...

About Sergii
I was born in Ukraine, started playing hockey at 3, chess at 4, still playing chess but not competitively anymore. I'm a junior at University of Houston and working towards my Engineering major, where I feel chess helped me great, especially with logic thinking and analysis. I've been teaching chess in high school library to kids who wanted to learn and then also played and taught chess in university to those who didn't know it yet. When I stopped playing competitively in chess at 15, my ELO was in around 1900. Currently I would say its around 1800-1900 based on chess players/programs that I play with.
