First lesson and already I have so much helpful direction from Florin. His coaching is exactly what I’ve been looking for. He’s also personable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Florin is a great instructor. I asked my son (age 12) if he used any of Florin's advice/teachings in his latest chess tournament, and he said, "Yes! I used EVERYTHING he taught me." :)
