Private Chess Teacher

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.

My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars.

Private Chess Teacher

As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...

Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.

I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!

Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward.

Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).

Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

I love to play chess and to teach beginners of all ages This game exercises the analytical and spatial awareness parts of your brain in ways that will strengthen your overall brain function.

About Aimee

I teach gospel piano and beginner piano, flute, chess and English/ESL.

Use your ears, use your fingers and all the other gifts God gave you to assist during your local worship service. I come from a long line (4 generations) of church musicians. I trained classically on piano and flute - and can teach the basics for both instruments across genres. I have also been a journalist for The Associated Press (gotta have a day job!). And have done grant writing work for nonprofits. I can help you improve your English writing and speaking skills. And I love to play chess (gotta have a hobby!). But when it comes to Gospel - you need a little theory and a lot of heart and soul to develop your musical ear! Come join me at my storefront church or we can meet up online. After you get the scales and common chord structures down, you'll be ready

to go!

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!

"My experience as working along with Sid as his Chess Aide at various school locations; is he has excellent classroom management skills which in turn the s
tudents grasp the lessons more quickly. Also, the students are more engaged in the lessons as well. He is aware of making sure all students understand how each piece moves and knows what to do at the end of each lesson before they play a game. He praises each student on their ability and knowledge of chess and helpful with others who are still learning the basics. As a chess aide and helper for Sid, I thoroughly enjoy working with someone who has great enthusiasm!"
