A Better Way to Learn
Teaches students 5 and up
Teaching since 1975
Teaches Beginner, Intermediate
My approach to teaching is that the lessons have to be customized for each student. I start beginner lessons with exercises that help familiarize them with the movement of each piece. They will also develop a sense of the powers and unique abilities possessed by that piece.
My focus on intermediate and advanced students is to help them develop their tactical ability. Chess is primarily an exercise in pattern recognition. I helped them develop that pattern.
We will then customize the lessons based on the student's interests and the topics that I feel will improve their game. We will play over the games of the great grandmasters and develop endgame technique. We will utilize openings that promote tactical situations.
Finally, we will have a lesson on chess etiquette.
Chess is an exciting game that provides mental stimulation. It is a good way to increase math and reading ability. It is also a good way to avoid Alzheimer's. I try to make chess instruction as interesting as possible. I will show the student how to build on their knowledge.

I have always had a passion for Fashion. Born in Miami and raised in Texas, this Fashionista began her sewing journey at the age of twelve receiving lessons and sewing tips from my mother. From there I started making my own clothing and began wearing my fashions to school which led t me sewing and designing clothing for my fellow school mates as well. Word began to travel that there was a young new designer in the community, so my clientele and skill level began to grow.

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
