I will conduct an initial meet and greet. Ask some questions about your level of play. To start with very basic lessons, so as to be overwhelming. I personally learned Chess, 42 years ago with my older brother as my tutor and he never let me win.
I began to hate Chess and feared to play my brother. Today, he refuses to play me. I've studied for 40 years to beat him.
I will ask the student if he knows about the fool's mate and strongly caution him to beware of it and urge him to never use it, if possible. It is better to beat an opponent with an honorable win than to win because of a cheap trickery. I will teach anyone of any level of play.
I enjoy beginners and intermediates because they are amazing when they learn something, the look of that moment when they grasp a deeper principle is highly rewarding. The game teaches live skills and boosts self confidence, while at the same time keeping one humble.
I want my students to learn at their own pace. If

"I normally don’t leave reviews, but after gone trough a few mediocre chess teachers, we are so happy we found Sam and I wanted to take a minute to say that Sam is an phenomenal chess teacher, our children( girl and boy, 6 & 9 ) Love his lessons and have grown so much in terms of chess skill level. Sam is very professional, super patient and uses exceptional effective teaching methods. He’s the best chess teacher we have found in south Florida, after years of changing teachers! Thank you Sam!"

"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 students 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!"
