Discover and enjoy a 1,400 year old classic! Whether you're still trying to figure out "how the horsey moves" or wading into tournaments on the regular, I can help you key in on your mistakes, develop a practice regimen, and improve your results at the board.

As a 2000-rated Expert Chess Player and a Chess Teacher for NYC Public Schools, I have the ability to teach to any age level. We'll discuss the great men and women of chess history, tactics, tournament preparation, openings, middlegame plans, and endgames that will help ensure your victory. Come check me out!

About John
Here goes...
I am a chess teacher, tutor, singer, and Shakespearean actor in NYC! I guess you could say I wear a lot of hats.

I graduated with honors in 2009 from New York University with a BFA in Drama. I've been professionally teaching since 2012, but I have always loved sharing the game of chess with anyone who wants to learn (just ask my friends).

Students can expect to face new challenges and to improve each and every week. I am happy to work with students of all different ages and experience levels. As a teacher in the New York Public School system, I know how to make chess simple and friendly enough for Kindergartners, Senior Citizens, and everyone in between! And as an active tournament player (current rating 2000), I can offer great insight into the needs of any skill level. I am thrilled to work with ambitious tournament playe
rs and those who just want to learn how to beat their friends :).

Chess is a wonderful, challenging game, but I truly believe that anyone can learn to play if they are motivated. Come work with me and discover your new obsession!

Want to learn Chess? Don't want to find judgemental teacher like your school/college professor? Look no further.
I'm a college student who has great knowledge of chess (played for 18 years, competitively for 13). I've been working as a teacher for 2 years. Im fluent in English/Russian/Ukrainian.
What I will give you/your kid is a good/great base, make him enjoy chess. In my lifetime I met teachers who push their kids too hard that kids eventually drop enjoyment from chess. I know chess can be challenging and will try to provide you with great opportunity to learn, without breaking your limits and make you regret you took this class. I was a victim of losing my interest to chess because of one such teacher, so for me its important that when you leave my class, you still enjoy what you are doing.

What I'll be covering in my classes:
Beginner- basic chess moves, simple logical and thinking development, referencing or showing different openings (giving both theory and practice)
...

About Sergii
I was born in Ukraine, started playing hockey at 3, chess at 4, still playing chess but not competitively anymore. I'm a junior at University of Houston and working towards my Engineering major, where I feel chess helped me great, especially with logic thinking and analysis. I've been teaching chess in high school library to kids who wanted to learn and then also played and taught chess in university to those who didn't know it yet. When I stopped playing competitively in chess at 15, my ELO was in around 1900. Currently I would say its around 1800-1900 based on chess players/programs that I play with.

About Alexandra
Hi, there! I'm an art student and a practicing artists with a keen interest in math. I study at Art Students League of New York and I take private art lessons as well. I study math on my own. What I would like to offer to my future little student is to develop their understanding of visual organization and mathematical thinking simultaneously.
