About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

About Lawrence B.

Close

I teach beginners, intermediate, and advanced players.

Advance players are those who play in tournaments and have a USCF (United States Chess Federation) rating between 1000-1799.

For advance players I offer a special package which includes a longer session, PGN (Portable Games Notation) of master level games and access to a chess Share drive.

About Lawrence
I have worked independently as a chess teacher for over 14 years. I play in National tournaments and I have an online chess profile.

I have worked with two of the largest chess instruction companies in the U.S., Silver Knights and Chess Wizards.

My primary focus is with students who play in tournaments but I also work well with people who just want to learn the game.

As a self taught player I understand and emphasize with adult players who have time constraints.

A recent student of mine placed in the 2015 PA state championship for his age group.

I have a BS degree in Marketing from Georgetown University
I have a MS degree in Information Technology from
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

When I am not teaching chess I work as a HR Consultant.

Very good instructor, I have had two lessons so far with Lawrence. The first lesson he introduced me to the type of software he uses, he referred me to certain websites I should check out, like chessgames.com where we analyzed some master games in the opening that I play and an overview of what we would cover in lessons. My second lessons we worked on some tactics and some positions because I wanted to focus on more of my middle game. And he also helped prepare me for an upcoming tournament I am playing in by going over my openings. His explanations are clear, and he provides many additional resources to explore and study.

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. A couple years ago I 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. I've recently moved to the Harrisbug, PA area, and am now teaching lessons here!

Thanks!
Josh

About Chris C.

Close
Austin, TX

View Full Profile

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 years of tournament experience, and I was awarded the title of First Category player by the United States Chess Federation, along with a rating of 2050 (Expert). I have tournament wins against master-level players rated as high as 2300.

Whether you prefer in-person or online lessons I will work with your schedule to meet your needs.

The best way to improve is to regularly play rated games, analyze the games with a strong player, and learn from the books and videos that are well-matched to your skill level. I provide advice on all these re
sources and have teaching materials prepared if you are interested in spending some time on them.

Please message me here at this site for more information and to chat about your needs and goals.

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.

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.

About Eli
Chess can be confusing and difficult sometimes, but really all you need is someone who loves chess to help you love it, and see it for its beauty. We'll play a few games together, so I see where what level you're at, then take you from there. From a beginners level, up to advanced, showing you the ins and outs of this exciting game. I'll show you games from the great players, teach you some history, give you puzzles, and watch you grow until one day, you might even beat me in a game! It'll be fun!
