Dipankar is very knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated. I received lessons from him for 6 months and in that time I scored 1st place in the unrated category in my first chess tournament and went on to improve my rating by 200 points.
I highly recommend Dipankar for chess lessons!
Jessica
I've taken informal lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 years or so. He does a great job at explaining the game of chess. He is very patient. I have been able to learn a few different openings and have seen great improvement in my games. It is apparent Dipankar loves the game of chess and has an avid interest in improving his own abilities. You won't find a better fit!
Malvika
I have been learning from Dipankar for around 15 months and I like his teaching style a lot.

The sessions are fun and educational and although I was a total beginner, I recently got my first ever medal in a chess tournament.

"Polite and very good teacher. Was very patient and had great knowledge of the game."

"I enjoyed taking lessons with Mr.Siddharth. He was a really cool instructor I could talk to and easily forget about time. It's always good to be so engaged with what you are learning that you put all your focus into the subject, and he easily allowed that. I even went over time in my first lesson, we were both so engaged!

I highly recommend Mr.Siddharth as an instructor. I am a relatively advanced player, but I can see how his wisdom can transfer over to beginners and intermediates. I will consider even more lessons in the future. One small caveat was his small bouts of absent-mindedness (moving the wrong piece, forgetting what as the last move), but that never caused so much confusion I didn't know what was going on.

Overall, he doesn't disappoint. Book a lesson with him, and you'll learn something."

"Kyle is an amazing instructor! In one session he went over six or seven studies and allowed me to try and work out complicated winning ideas in different positions, and then showed me the correct ones and more importantly, the ideas that a chess player should take away from them. I can genuinely say that even in that one session, I feel like Kyle helped me substantially improve as a chess player."
