Knowledgeable, friendly, listens to you and caters the puzzles as per your requirement. Also, if requested to change the class date in case of emergency - she is very flexible with her schedules and alters the class date (instead of marking canceled - which Takelessons will deduct the amount). Glad I chose her for my son!

I'm a passionate chess player with an extensive knowledge of chess theory who specializes in teaching beginner/intermediate (up to ~1600 USCF) players of all ages. Lessons will be personalized to focus on student's weaknesses and areas of needed improvement, as well as generalized chess instruction. Chess is a great platform to improve critical thinking skills and one's ability to focus, as well as a great way to have fun. My lessons will help you or your children gain an understanding of the art of chess and improve your confidence and ability to play the game.

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

I have taught chess with the US Chess Center in Washington, DC. I have created several after school and in school chess programs in DC, Ohio and Boston.

Online Chess Teacher

Instead of teaching common openings that everyone knows about, I can teach tricky openings that are filled with traps. I use many different openings on Chess.com and confuse opponents. I also teach tactics and am rated over 2300 on tactics.

About Hagen

Normally, chess teachers will teach you about classic openings such as the Ruy Lopez or the fried liver. However, I teach uncommon openings that are actually easily playable. If you are tricky in chess I strongly recommend you play my openings.
