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.

The lessons are supplemented by several materials: work book problems, live game play, student's game analysis, online resources, classic game review and much more. My custom lesson plans are based on the student's background and experience

I teach chess in school settings and private lessons. The skill of students ranges from beginner to intermediate. Some of my students have ratings up to 1200. I can teach you at your home, at my home, or a public place like a library or coffee shop. A typical lesson will be an hour and include a quick chess puzzle, a substantive and level-appropriate lesson, and a challenge game with analysis. All lessons are very dependent on student level, and may include only some of those components.

About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. I recently began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people.

Thanks!
Josh

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

Learn to become a good chess player.

About Leo
My name is Leo. I've been a musician for 28 years and teaching for 14 years and I still continue to pursue all things concerning music with the same passion, perseverance, and love I had at the beginning of my music career.

I received my formal training at Texas State University where I studied Classical guitar and Music Education while also playing in Hard Rock bands in San Antonio. While still in college, I started teaching music privately to help pay for my education. I soon found myself with a successful business and decided to focus on it full time.

My goal is to produce quality music lessons available to anyone who's ever desired to learn the guitar, piano, music production, music theory, Pro Tools, songwriting & arranging, composing for film & video games, and all other important music skills in the comfort of their home.

The starting point of all achievement is desire, so if you desire to become a better musician then don't hesitate, get started now.
