Chess is a great hobby for children and adults alike! I've been teaching chess for over a year now (through private lessons and at the Los Angeles Chess Club) and my lessons are as fun and engaging as they are educational. Whether this is your first time seeing a chess board in your whole life or if you've always admired the game from afar, I can help you develop your understanding of all aspects of the game.

Jessica’s enthusiasm for the game is palpable. She is very patient and gets one to start thinking about why one move makes more sense than another move. After my first lesson today, I’m thinking about attackers and defenders, and making sure my attackers outnumber the defenders.

Private Chess Teacher

My teaching style is progressive and tailored to the individual student. Each lesson builds on what was learned before. We go over games that the student has played, especially losses to higher rated players. For beginning players and juniors I teach the fundamentals and build from there. Suggested books are Comprehensive Chess Course, for beginners, and Chess The Easy Way by Reuben Fine, for more advanced players.

About Chris

I'm a patient and experienced chess teacher with 8 years of experience teaching children and adults. My teaching approach is practical and fun. We look at the chess games that you've played, and I teach the fundamentals of chess strategy and tactics based on these games. I have more than twenty

Chris is an excellent teacher and he's really helped me improve my game. In one lesson he showed me an opening that I used to win against a strong player. We go over games that I've played and he always has helpful suggestions. I highly recommend Chris as a chess teacher.

I grew up learning slower than everyone else. So slow that it was obvious from a very young age that there was something the matter with me. My mom would drive four hours to go to classes for children with learning disabilities on the weekends. I started speech therapy and eventually we would learn

"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."
