I purchased the lessons for my 9 yr old son. He has never played the piano or any instrument before these lessons. Joshua is very talented in his field but I feel he needs to work on his patience. He was always professional but his tone and expressions made my son nervous. I had to stop the classes and loose my payments. I wanted to push my son to finish the classes, however, I didn’t want him to loose his love of music. I hope this comment helps to improve the next person’s experience.

I was surprised that my lesson could be cancelled without any communication. This is our first experience with piano lessons and was excited to try it for the first time. ;(

My son has had 2 lessons so far. Joshua has worked with him at the level he is at and helped him when he gets stuck on certain chords and notes. He assigned homework for him to practice during the week and helped him figure out the parts he was stuck on.

My students and I have at least one meeting per week with the goal of preparing them for rated competitions. During this meeting, I will go over tactical themes with the student, challenge him/her with puzzles, go over and discuss Grandmaster games and opening variations, or play training games.

I will also chat with the student and find out what she been doing, what she has been working on, and ask her what problems she has encountered during her training.

I'm an advanced player, and Daniel is patient and clear in helping me to improve - he's extremely knowledgeable and provides resources and homework so I can prepare for the next lesson
Susie
I am new to chess will likely be a happy newbie for ever. I appreciate Daniel’s patience and willingness to explain details, sometimes multiple times, and answer basic questions about terminology, how to navigate chess sites, etc.
He is flexible with his lesson plans and adjusts them to meet the needs of his student.
Maria
My 14 year old son had several lessons with Daniel and enjoyed them very much. Daniel is clearly passionate both about chess and teaching. His lessons are always planned in advance and you can request specific topic to be covered. He is very patient, and allows student time to think through moves and strategies. After the lesson, he gives you a 'homework' puzzle to solve, which was reviewed in the following lesson. Definitely recommend!

Great experience. I learned a large amount in just 90 minutes. She was very patient with me and took the time to address portions of the game that I was both interested in learning and were important that I was not aware of. Well worth every dollar spent.
Michael D.
Amazing instructor. My advice, if you want to learn, learn from the best. My understanding of chess is so much better after my lessons from Atousa. She is awesome. Answer all my questions, taught me how to practice and what to practice. How to understand seemingly simple concepts that separate low rated players from high rated players.

At age 11 I achieved the title of Master, and since then have become an International Master (with 1 Grandmaster norm), 5-time National Champion and am currently the #1 18-year-old on the west coast of the United States. Without chess instruction from the most patient, inspiring, and hardworking chess coaches none of this would have been possible.

I began to play chess at 7 years old and after my coach ended our first class by saying, "Every champion was once a beginner" my youthful imagination ran wild and I was hooked. My early development in chess proved to be nontraditional where my structured classes provided by my school were supplemented by the aggressive, unconventional playing styles I learned from spending my weekends sneaking games in with hustlers at my local chess park. Yet learning these vastly different approaches to the game allowed me to become a more complete player, and after 6 weeks of practice, I could beat every kid in my class and almost defeated my coach. ...

"This is my 2nd review now for Atousa - which alone says all good about her. I've had 5 lessons with her, and Atousa is AMAZING! She has just about the PERFECT COMBINATION of Method and Expertise. Patience - yep, she has that. Encouraging - yep, check that box too. She is not a time stickler; she will go up and beyond to help you learn your stuff! The ONLY challenge I ever have is with the technology with SKYPE - and that is decidedly NOT on Atousa. If there is a quality on desires, seeks in Tutor/Teacher - I dare say Atousa possesses it and manifests it in ABUNDANCE! I can't Recommend Atousa enough. If you want to get good at Chess - Atousa is a BRILLIANT mind and EXCEPTIONAL teacher! You won't be sorry! :) :) :)"

"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."

"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 …
