I've been playing chess for over 50 years. In school, I implemented training sessions to help build our teams into stronger performances. I started training students again 10 years ago and enjoy the opportunity to share the passion of chess. I also teach dance and have been trained in teaching concepts by my wife, a teacher with a Masters! Whether young or old, we can be successful in your progress in chess!

- Teaching since:
Bruce learned the game of chess in the late 60's, becoming a "Fischer Kid" during the 70's. In high school, he easily captured the team championships and represented his school until graduating in 1976.
He taught some of his fellow students to play and improve in their games during this time and enjoyed sharing his joy of the game with others. Although life has sent him in many directions career-wise, he has never strayed far from chess.
In addition to chess, Bruce has played semi-pro football and is also now a dance instructor. His understanding of working with body and mind to create the best you makes him a unique choice in mentoring young students about chess and life in general. His enthusiasm for life and the activities he teaches are contagious and he hopes that each of his students enjoy the time with him enough to "pass it forward" to others!
Teaching in private and public school environments. From Kindergarten through 5th grade in after school programs as well as in class instruction.
