I was a chess tutor for Elementary and Middle School aged kids for 3 years. I helped them learn how to play, get better at playing, and also facilitated events for my students to compete in chess. I have played Chess since I was 4 and before I stopped competing, I had a ranking of around 1600. I was also the President of my school's 30 member Chess Club when I was in high school. I think Chess is incredibly fun and beneficial to a young mind. I hope I can teach you what I know!

McKenna has a great style where she continually challenges me to push my thinking but also keeps the lesson fun and shares the way she would think about a given situation. This was my third or fourth lesson with her, she clearly comes in with a game plan to make me incrementally better each week, and always concludes the lesson with some things for me to think about for next time or when I'm playing with my friends. She clearly has a brillant chess mind but more importantly for me is a great teacher.

McKenna was patient with my 6-year-old.

Vinny has given lessons to my son for 3 years in the Chicagoland area. He started in 7th grade. My son made the highest level of Wind Ensemble when entering high school as a freshman. I highly recommend Vinny. Vinny works on your child's school music and he also gives a lesson that you need to accomplish. Vinny is a likable person, great with kids, he has this "cool" vibe to him that makes you smile and the kids relate to him very well. I suggest you try him out!

"Aaron has been teaching my 9 year old son chess lessons. After several months with a weekly lesson, my wife and I are very pleased with his progress. At first we had our doubts about whether online classes would work. The truth is that we are very satisfied because the use of technology added interest for my son in learning. Aaron is very patient and makes the lessons enjoyable, with some humor. He has a teaching method that combines strategy and theory with a love for the game. That is the magic of learning and is the key to advance one's knowledge of any discipline. Now we play more and more competitive matches and his progress is very noticeable. We also appreciate Aaron's feedback about how each lesson went and tips to work on during the week to reinforce what was learned."
