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.

About Richard

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 been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve."

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

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 …
