I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

As soon as you get to understand chess well, you'll begin to see it's beauty and depth. Each game is an adventure. I love chess, and that is my perspective of the old and romantic game of kings and queens. I also enjoy teaching it that way, as it makes the game fun to learn and play.

Online Chess Teacher

I will conduct an initial meet and greet. Ask some questions about your level of play. To start with very basic lessons, so as to be overwhelming. I personally learned Chess, 42 years ago with my older brother as my tutor and he never let me win.
I began to hate Chess and feared to play my brother. Today, he refuses to play me. I've studied for 40 years to beat him.
I will ask the student if he knows about the fool's mate and strongly caution him to beware of it and urge him to never use it, if possible. It is better to beat an opponent with an honorable win than to win because of a cheap trickery. I will teach anyone of any level of play.
I enjoy beginners and intermediates because they are amazing when they learn something, the look of that moment when they grasp a deeper principle is highly rewarding. The game teaches live skills and boosts self confidence, while at the same time keeping one humble.
I want my students to learn at their own pace. If
