I am a USCF CM level chess coach and trainer with over 15 years experience assisting students of all playing levels achieve their chess goals. I coach students from absolute beginner to A Class and beyond. I play 1.e4 and have an aggressive attacking style, and so I will teach you how to obtain and to exploit the advantage from move 1. Gambits, sacrifices and King assaults are my specialty, so if you are looking for exciting chess then you are in the right place. Using proven training methods, I will improve your knowledge in Strategy, Openings, Middlegame, Endgame, Positional Elements, and Tactics. We will train your essential skills such as Calculation, Planning, and Visualization. These are just a few of the things we will explore and learn.

Jerry was able to quickly assess my level and current issues by replaying recent online games. He ran thru the openings I used, demonstrating several variations as well as traps I could employ. Very happy with both his assessment and the customized class to immediately improve my play!!!
