I have been coaching chess for many years. What makes chess lessons unique with me is that I make the chess lessons exciting, fun to learn, I point out mistakes/weaknesses in a very kind way, I give good examples of moves/positions relate to real life, I teach people the psychology of playing chess, and I improve people's game through love and repetition. I teach several opening variations as well as middle-game and end-game tactics. But I focus on what people's weaknesses are and I make those weaknesses their greatest strength.

I was stuck in a rut and unsure about how to improve my chess game. After a few lesson with Matt I feel a lot better about where I am at, and have been steadily improving over the last few weeks. Matt was able to figuring out why I was stuck, and what I needed to work on to get my chess abilities to the next level. Would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to improve their game!

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.

"Matt’s coaching has helped me improve my mid and end game play tremendously. I had the tendency to make moves that would sabotage my strong board positions and lead to slow, but sure defeats. Much of Matt’s coaching has helped me see how to leverage my pawns and structure my board for better end-game closings."

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 …
