About Bora Y.

Know thyself is the saying, and it applies to chess as well. Everyone is different. Each has his/her different objectives. Everyone also his/her own strengths and weaknesses. I tailor the lessons taking these into the account, and focusing on improving on the weaknesses within the framework of the student's goals. I try to put the emphasis on calculation, middle-game positions, and endgames, however.

I am taking weekly lessons with Bora in order to push my game to the next level. Bora is passionate about chess, and it really shows in his approach to teaching, which I find to be both entertaining and effective. Bora is also a nice person all around and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and/or their kids.
