Hi, I'm a chess tutor and competitor! I teach students of all ages and skill levels and volunteer for the non-profit organizations Chess Challenge in DC and Chess Girls DC. I focus on one-on-one lessons with instruction geared towards preparing my students for competitive play. Please contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to schedule a lesson. My rate is $40/hr, but I offer several discounts.
I started playing competitive chess when I was 11 and am now a USCF Candidate Master (CM), with a USCF rating of 2085 and a FIDE rating of 2150. Growing up, I competed in the Massachusetts State Scholastic Chess Championship three times and was featured in Chess Life. As a young adult, I've competed throughout the US, defeating several National Masters (NMs), Fide Masters (FMs), and achieving a draw with International Master (IM) Martin Neubauer. I hope to channel my experience towards making you a better player!
