Very good instructor, I have had two lessons so far with Lawrence. The first lesson he introduced me to the type of software he uses, he referred me to certain websites I should check out, like chessgames.com where we analyzed some master games in the opening that I play and an overview of what we would cover in lessons. My second lessons we worked on some tactics and some positions because I wanted to focus on more of my middle game. And he also helped prepare me for an upcoming tournament I am playing in by going over my openings. His explanations are clear, and he provides many additional resources to explore and study.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.
Sevval N.
She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

"Coach Siddharth has been a colleague of mine and a chess coach in great standing at Silver Knights Enrichment for the past few years; during this time I have had the privileged of co-coaching groups of young chess enthusiasts with him on numerous occasions and have been continually appreciative of Siddharth's ability to effectively impart his vast knowledge of chess concepts and principles to young students. In addition to his enthusiasm for teaching, he also has a patient demeanor and a wonderful way with kids. Recently I was pleased to learn that one of Siddharth's private students participated in his first scholastic chess tournament and won First Place in his division! Bravo coach!"
