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.

Danial was a very patient and informative instructor. His skill level goes way beyond your average coach as if he is almost a gm. On top of this he made chess intriguing and I would definitely recommend him.
