My grandson is five and loves chess. Thomas is a fantastic teacher! I’m glad I sat in, as I learned a whole lot. Now I’ll be able to play with Nolan and reinforce the lessons taught us by Thomas. Thomas is absolutely perfect for us. I’m really happy I got the ten lesson package. No regrets.

My students and I have at least one meeting per week with the goal of preparing them for rated competitions. During this meeting, I will go over tactical themes with the student, challenge him/her with puzzles, go over and discuss Grandmaster games and opening variations, or play training games.

I will also chat with the student and find out what she been doing, what she has been working on, and ask her what problems she has encountered during her training.

I have been playing chess for 35 years. I play generally three times a week and win regularly. I have taught the game to over 100 people in my life. I mentor a number of young people who strongly believe that my chess instruction and the applicable thought logic lessons I inculcate have escalated their job options. I prefer students at the introductory levels to eliminate bad habits.

She is very patience with my daughter! Great!
Chloe
She said she couldn’t help me unless we were on zoom. No one told me this and I don’t know how to do zoom. So then she told me to connect to her on the computer and not my phone so I tried that. That didn’t work. So she looked at my screen and told me it was blurry. Then after all that we lost connection and she was unwilling to reschedule so I could actually get what I paid for which was help!!! All my other teachers on here have been good, but I can’t recommend jasmine as it was a complete waste of my money.

"I have been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve."

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
