"My 8 year old son really enjoys his sessions with Siddharth G. His game and confidence has improved and I am positive it will get even better with additional classes. He appreciates how patient his instructor is and the positive reinforcement provided during the lessons. As a parent, I like getting updates on his progress and additional 'homework' (puzzles) he gets - definitely comes in handy during this quarantine phase.
We definitely recommend Siddharth G. to anyone looking to learn chess, improve or get to the next level."

"Dipankar has been an absolute wonder for my chess improvement; after only one lesson! He has a real talent for finding one's weaknesses in their play simply by quickly analyzing their games which is a huge asset. Secondly, he also takes time to not only give you areas to work on, but also the means and resources to do so. Dipankar was constantly giving me advice as weeks went by and has been coaching me regardless of wether or not I am in a lesson! He is a natural teacher and a stellar guy. I recommend him for anyone looking to improve their chess."
