Private Chess Teacher

USCF expert & certified coach, enthusiastic about the game, and friendly teacher,

10+ years of experience working with Grandmasters,

15+ years tournament play and psychology experience,

Can help you improve on various aspects of the game -- over the board, as well as online lessons,

Specializing in players rated 800-1800 level.

About Bora

Know thyself is the saying, and it applies to chess as well.

Everyone is different. Each has his/her different objectives. Everyone also his/her own strengths and weaknesses.

I tailor the lessons taking these into the account, and focusing on improving on the weaknesses within the framework of the student's goals.

I try to put the emphasis on calculation, middle-game positions, and endgames, however.

Private Chess Teacher

Learn Chess from a Woman Chess Grand Master!

She's been teaching chess from beginner to advanced level for more than 10 years.
She's been playing chess professionally Since 1996.

About Atousa

Becoming the world youth champion at 12 and chess Grand Master at 20, would have never been possible without receiving the best chess lessons from my trainers and coaches. Everyone needs guidance in chess, I’m here to share my knowledge with you.

Despite being a professional chess player since I was 9, I’ve been teaching chess since 2006 and started my own chess school in 2008.

Private Lesson is an excellent way to learn, implement and achieve desired results for ambitious players or children who want to start chess methodically. Also, it helps any chess player to improve his/her proficiency. My students range are from beginner to master level.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Chess Teacher

I love to play chess and to teach beginners of all ages This game exercises the analytical and spatial awareness parts of your brain in ways that will strengthen your overall brain function.

About Aimee

I teach gospel piano and beginner piano, flute, chess and English/ESL.

Use your ears, use your fingers and all the other gifts God gave you to assist during your local worship service. I come from a long line (4 generations) of church musicians. I trained classically on piano and flute - and can teach the basics for both instruments across genres. I have also been a journalist for The Associated Press (gotta have a day job!). And have done grant writing work for nonprofits. I can help you improve your English writing and speaking skills. And I love to play chess (gotta have a hobby!). But when it comes to Gospel - you need a little theory and a lot of heart and soul to develop your musical ear! Come join me at my storefront church or we can meet up online. After you get the scales and common chord structures down, you'll be ready

to go!

"My child had such a great time learning chess with Sam. Sam's an incredible nice, friendly and knowledgeable professional.
My kids love chess now becaus

Jason
"This is my 2nd review now for Atousa - which alone says all good about her. I've had 5 lessons with her, and Atousa is AMAZING! She has just about the P
ERFECT COMBINATION of Method and Expertise. Patience - yep, she has that. Encouraging - yep, check that box too. She is not a time stickler; she will go up and beyond to help you learn your stuff! The ONLY challenge I ever have is with the technology with SKYPE - and that is decidedly NOT on Atousa. If there is a quality on desires, seeks in Tutor/Teacher - I dare say Atousa possesses it and manifests it in ABUNDANCE! I can't Recommend Atousa enough. If you want to get good at Chess - Atousa is a BRILLIANT mind and EXCEPTIONAL teacher! You won't be sorry! :) :) :)"

"Wanted to share my experience. I'm in my late 30's and wanted to improve my chess skills, and i'm so happy I was able to find Sam. The lessons are challen
