I've been playing chess for about 8 years. Aside from being a strong player, I also have experience tutoring players of all ages and skill levels. This includes my time spent instructing a very competitive and successful high school chess team as well as serving as a personal tutor for different families in their homes. Of the hours I have formally tutored, I have amassed a 5 star rating on a comparable website.

Exceptional gentleman and very professional. Arrived ahead of time 5 minutes which is ideal and took time to chat with Clyde which is fantastic. Clyde enjoyed the time with Austin and is already looking forward to next Sunday. Perfectly executed Austin!

I have been teaching chess for 3 years and my students have gone on to tournament level and won competitions. Within the first few lessons, my students have developed a deeper understanding of chess strategies As the progressed further in their lessons they have developed special moves to win the chess games. I take pride in my students' success and love working with them. I do provide tournament chess boards for my students.

About Siddharth
Hi there, my name is Siddharth and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, including private lessons, over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition. Recently, two of my students have won in their respective tournaments.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to make chess a fun experience while improving my students' technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

I have been coaching chess for many years. What makes chess lessons unique with me is that I make the chess lessons exciting, fun to learn, I point out mistakes/weaknesses in a very kind way, I give good examples of moves/positions relate to real life, I teach people the psychology of playing chess, and I improve people's game through love and repetition. I teach several opening variations as well as middle-game and end-game tactics. But I focus on what people's weaknesses are and I make those weaknesses their greatest strength.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matt as my first chess coach and has greatly increased my understanding of chess. My games are now competitive with players 400 to 600 rating points above me and I feel I am improving every week. Funny how much I can learn quickly after playing for forty years, with just a few lessons.

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.

Clovis, CA

I am currently ranging in the expert category through USCF (National federation). Teaching both American and Russian methods of chess. Students with hard work have achieved their goals with me in a relatively decent time frame. I believe in the theory that chess can improve thinking in general, with improvements on decision making and critical thinking. I have a complete chess curriculum which covers an entire thinking process. I can provide plan layouts and recommend how to effectively enter into active chess communities including tournaments.

About Jesse
I have a passion for chess. Teaching for almost 15 years. Students ranging from 7 to 60 and from just learning how the pieces move to 1900 rating. Graduate of the remote chess academy (No certificate, but having gone through all modules released except for the last one that was released a few months ago.) Several city level championships from the Fresno area which is local to me. Material is not scripted but can supply related reading materials on request. I focus on thinking process, which helps with finding the right moves in any position. This includes Openings, Tactics, Positional themes, Endgames.
