My students and I have at least one in-person meeting per week with the goal of preparing them for rated competitions. During this meeting, I will go over tactical themes with the student, challenge him/her with puzzles, go over and discuss Grandmaster games and opening variations, or play training games.

I will also chat with the student and find out what she been doing, what she has been working on, and ask her what problems she has encountered during her training.

Private Chess Teacher

I have been playing chess for 35 years. I play generally three times a week and win regularly. I have taught the game to over 100 people in my life. I mentor a number of young people who strongly believe that my chess instruction and the applicable thought logic lessons I inculcate have escalated their job options. I prefer students at the introductory levels to eliminate bad habits.

I am 22 years old and has been playing chess since I was 10 years old. I’m very knowledgeable in teaching young students how to quickly understand and play chess. I enjoy making the lessons fun and finding ways to help each individual student learn at their own pace. I have been to nationals for chess, therefore; I can also teach preparation on navigating chess tournaments. I can teach beginners and intermediate level starting at age 5 to older. I make learning about chess fun and satisfying for all.
