First lesson and already I have so much helpful direction from Florin. His coaching is exactly what I’ve been looking for. He’s also personable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Florin is a great instructor. I asked my son (age 12) if he used any of Florin's advice/teachings in his latest chess tournament, and he said, "Yes! I used EVERYTHING he taught me." :)

We had great conversation in general and insights in chess. Florin is very engaging and great individual. Overjoyed to have met him. Alex

My students can expect a lesson that's full of fun, engaging and accompanied by a high level of passion and energy.
I'm result oriented and very dedicated to my students and provide students with a lot of constructive feedback during the lessons.
Lessons will mainly focus on students strength and weaknesses, through many different means. The lessons are supplemented by several materials: work book problems, live game play, analysis of student's own games, online resources, classic game review and much more. My custom lesson plans are based on the student's own background and experience. I am always committed to making each lesson fun and exciting!

Fantastic teacher, very professional and engaging. Cheers!

My 6 year old son loves chess and when I told him several weeks ago I would get him chess lessons for Christmas, he was extremely excited. He talked about it every day for weeks. I emailed Sam to confirm the lesson and ask him if we needed to prepare. Sam asked us to make sure we had zoom, which I replied that we did. I asked him what link to use to log on for the lesson and he never replied. The day of the lesson, my son was checking the time every hour, waiting for it to start. 40 minutes in advance, he set up his chess board at the dining room table and sat waiting. For over an hour I tried every way I could to figure out how to log on to the lesson. Called customer service twice and no answer. Called Sam multiple times, and his phone went straight to voicemail. Emailed; texted; everything to no avail. The lesson time came and went. My son is still in tears. I have paid for three lessons, and it appears this service is a scam or something. If this is in fact a serious business, I hope I can expect a refund.

...So had my 3rd zoom lesson online, was awesome!
Have a much better understanding of the game. Sam, is an excellent coach and knows his stuff-highly recommended.

"At first I thought the price was too expensive, but after only one class with my son I was blown away! We not take regular classes from Danial twice a week. His ability to work with kids and not only make the game fascinating, but convey complex ideas in easy to understand ways is unmatched! In addition, his many years of international tournament experience and ideas gathered from the best in the world is clearly evident. 10/10 recommend. He is the best teacher I have seen on the platform!"

It warms my heart to hear him ask if I want to play a game of chess instead of him asking if he can play video games. Cannot recommend Atousa enough. She is wonderful."

"Matt is a great person both intellectually and personality wise. I have known him for around 4 months and he has a unique approach to the way he teaches. He uses real world scenarios to provide another angle to approaching the game. I have increased my level 100 points since working with Matt. Matt also took the time to analyze the games we had played and provided great feedback so I can understand where I was weak and when I was in a strong position. The only downside is that Matt lives 4.5 hours away. I know in person would provide even greater experience. Matt is also very positive and genuine. I believe you will become a better chess player if you work with Matt.

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

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 …

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
