Learn chess from a self taught expert 2100 rating. When exposed to chess years ago it was love at first site. I realized there’s a reason it’s the most highly referenced game in the world. As your skills grow you will uncover the pure beauty and life lessons chess has to offer. Patience, resilience, relentlessness... and most importantly, the maturity to think before you move. You must possess the restraint to tread calmly through positional warfare.. you must demonstrate the courage to strike when the iron is hot. As your teacher I will arm you with strategical knowledge and tactical prowess. My most important job however will be to make sure your love and passion for the game increases with each and every lesson. I want you to win. I want you to have fun. So why me instead of a grandmaster? I am young, relatable, personable guy. My friends say I’m funny! My lessons are cheaper. I have years and years of knowledge and examples to share. Thanks for reading, I’m so excited to start ...

Online Chess Teacher

I have been playing chess for nine years, and have peak ratings of 2348 FIDE and 2390 USCF. Some of my accomplishments include: I am a 5 Time National Champion, THE NUMBER ONE RANKED 17 YEAR OLD IN THE WEST COAST of the UNITED STATES, ranked top ten in the country for my age group, and have achieved the titles of national master and FIDE master. Along with this, I am also rated in the top 5% of all chess players. I have taught many chess camps for kids and adults across the California area and have 2 years of teaching experience. One of my biggest teaching accomplishments is assisting one of my students to go from #117 in the country to #13 in the country (gained 500 rating points) for their age group in a matter of 5 months! I welcome all levels and will make sure each lesson is tailored specifically to every student's needs. After receiving many hours of coaching myself and improving to where I am today, I can guarantee I can help you get to the next level. If you are ready to ...

Aidan C.
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.

As a high rated 1500+ player, Danial was able to teach many new things about my openings and how I ca imrpove. Great coach!
