He was very good with my son who had never played chess before. He can’t wait for next weeks lesson.

I can't say best instructor ever, since he was the first I ever had. But he was clear and smart and taught me a great deal in our session. I can't wait to take the second lesson.

Dipankar has been an absolute wonder for my chess improvement; after only one lesson! He has a real talent for finding one's weaknesses in their play simply by quickly analyzing their games which is a huge asset. Secondly, he also takes time to not only give you areas to work on, but also the means and resources to do so. Dipankar was constantly giving me advice as weeks went by and has been coaching me regardless of wether or not I am in a lesson! He is a natural teacher and a stellar guy. I recommend him for anyone looking to improve their chess.

Dipankar is very knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated. I received lessons from him for 6 months and in that time I scored 1st place in the unrated category in my first chess tournament and went on to improve my rating by 200 points.
I highly recommend Dipankar for chess lessons!

I've taken informal lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 years or so. He does a great job at explaining the game of chess. He is very patient. I have been able to learn a few different openings and have seen great improvement in my games. It is apparent Dipankar loves the game of chess and has an avid interest in improving his own abilities. You won't find a better fit!

I have been learning from Dipankar for around 15 months and I like his teaching style a lot.

The sessions are fun and educational and although I was a total beginner, I recently got my first ever medal in a chess tournament.
