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.

My students can expect a lesson that's full of fun, engaging and accompanied by a high level of passion and energy.
I'm result oriented and very dedicated to my students and provide students with a lot of constructive feedback during the lessons.
Lessons will mainly focus on students strength and weaknesses, through many different means. The lessons are supplemented by several materials: work book problems, live game play, analysis of student's own games, online resources, classic game review and much more. My custom lesson plans are based on the student's own background and experience. I am always committed to making each lesson fun and exciting!

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.
