About Shahadoth
I teach various courses.
I specialize in preparing individuals for the SHSAT and SAT, delivering exceptional results through the augmentation of relevant ntelligence quotients.

Multiple students of mine have been accepted into Stuyvesant High School, as well as various other prestigious schools, including Townsend Harris, Bronx Science, and Brooklyn Tech.

I open students minds to advanced logical processing and am efficient in helping students process faster in engaging manners. This has proven to be both academically as well as practically beneficial to my students.

I tutor people in manners that dramatically improves their GPA and gives them the tools, work ethic and processing capabilities to accomplish beyong 90+ GPA levels.

One of my students came to me with a below 78 GPA. After tutoring the child for 7 months, his GPA
had increased to above 98 in the second marking period of his first semester of high school. I taught him to process faster, work with discipline so as to focus better, and be determined on top of course materials. I tutor people to be more efficient academically and practically so that the result is a better person with greater capabilities. This helps people become more self sufficient and reach their full potential.

I achieved a chess rating in the 98th percentile of scholastic players. I have had the opportunity to teach chess to many beginners by starting the chess club at my elementary school, and teaching students in junior high and high school chess clubs. I would like to teach beginning chess players (

About Tyler
I received my Bachelors of Science in Cellular Molecular Biology, graduated Summa Cum Laude (GPA > 3.9) and Phi Kappa Phi (Top 10% of class). I scored in the 99th percentile of the MCAT, 100th percentile of the ACS National Organic Chemistry Exam, and 98th percentile in the science section of the ACT. This fall, I will be attending a Top 15 medical school.

I grew up with the learning disabilities dyslexia, dysgraphia, and auditory processing disorder. I believe the challenges of having learning disabilities has given me the experience to help others succeed and enjoy academics.

I began teaching by tutoring at-risk students in chemistry at my high school. I mentored students in problem solving and aimed to excite them towards the assignments.

I continued teaching as a teaching assistant for the upper division cell biology class
by instructing students in immunological laboratory techniques (including flow cytometry and ELISA).

My research on rheumatoid arthritis conducted at my college and Harvard Medical School has resulted in seven presentations, three at national medical conferences.

As a chess player I achieved a rating in the 98th percentile of scholastic players and have taught students from 8 to 27 years old.

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

I have been coaching chess for 2-3 years now. 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.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for 2-3 years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1939 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 1983. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well.

I am currently coaching 7 students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecula
r/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

My son was tutored by Matt in Biology. Matt's subject matter expertise and enthusiasm for the subject had a positive impact on my son's academic performance in 9th grade Biology.

Matt partners well with parents, is very responsive and flexible with scheduling and is an overall pleasure to work with.

You or your child will have a great experience in working with Matt.

Matthew is very knowledgeable of the game. He is easily approachable and has the ability to connect with students of all skill levels as well as multiple generations. My teenage son was comfortable with him immediately and he is not always receptive to learning if the setting feels awkward to him. As for my own experience I received valuable insight into my own games after reviewing score sheets from tournament games and isolating those ever present blunders that seem to lurking on every chess board just waiting to be discovered. Anyway I give a hearty two thumbs up to my millennial friend.

About John
Here goes...
I am a chess teacher, tutor, singer, and Shakespearean actor in NYC! I guess you could say I wear a lot of hats.

I graduated with honors in 2009 from New York University with a BFA in Drama. I've been professionally teaching since 2012, but I have always loved sharing the game of chess with anyone who wants to learn (just ask my friends).

Students can expect to face new challenges and to improve each and every week. I am happy to work with students of all different ages and experience levels. As a teacher in the New York Public School system, I know how to make chess simple and friendly enough for Kindergartners, Senior Citizens, and everyone in between! And as an active tournament player (current rating 2000), I can offer great insight into the needs of any skill level. I am thrilled to work with ambitious tournament playe
rs and those who just want to learn how to beat their friends :).

Chess is a wonderful, challenging game, but I truly believe that anyone can learn to play if they are motivated. Come work with me and discover your new obsession!
