"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."
