Overview

I am an International Master and 2015 co-champion of the State of Illinois. I have been coaching full time since 2011 and helping players increase their rating and get more wins!
If you have any questions at all send me a message and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Also if you do not see a certain time slot available you can check with me to see if indeed that slot is taken.

For lessons I typically use Dasher:

https://www.chessclub.com/download-software/dasher
and Skype (audio only).
You could try to use the iOS version (https://www.chessclub.com/downloads) instead but it has a few more glitches than the Windows version.

You can get a free 30 day trial on ICC (Internet Chess Club) after that it will be $10/month but it is the best chess server out there for finding the right kind of players.

Right now I am only accepting online lessons, thanks for stopping by!

· Chess · Online Florin is a great instructor. I asked my son (age 12) if he used any of Florin's advice/teachings in his latest chess tournament, and he said, "Yes! I used EVERYTHING he taught me." :)

· Chess · Online What a great instructor! After six months of lessons I can say, without a doubt, Florin is the best instructor anyone could hope for. Florin is very knowledgeable and helped me improve my game more than I could ever imagine. He is patient and takes the time to explain difficult concepts. It is not everyday you get the opportunity to receive lessons from an International Master.

· Chess · Online I have really enjoyed my lessons with Florin. It is a fantastic opportunity to take lessons from an International Master, because Florin is able to quickly and clearly explain chess concepts to me in a way that I can immediately use in my games. My game has improved markedly since studying with Florin. He always keeps the lessons filled with good content but makes them relaxing and fun. I intend to continue my study with Florin and I strongly recommend him as a chess instructor.

· Chess · Online Very helpful and knowledgeable of the game and tactics. I'm a beginner, but I felt like a pro by the end of the lesson. I learned so much. Highly recommended.
