Hello, I'm Jessica! I can't wait to help you learn more about chess! I've been teaching at the Los Angeles Chess Club and through private lessons for almost two years now and I love watching my students improve. I've been playing chess for many years now and I spend multiple hours a day improving my skills. I know personally what it's like to be both a childhood and an adult learner of chess, and the difficulties involved learning at each age. Within the chess community, there are predetermined notions of how much certain groups (mainly female and adult learners) can achieve, but I believe placing an upward limit on our improvement is greatly detrimental to our growth as players. With the correct guidance and the right amount of encouragement, anyone can become a fantastic player of chess!

Jessica has been a fantastic instructor, both efficiently using the time in our lesson and taking care to explain each point carefully. It's a great combination of new information and deep learning. As a beginner/intermediate chess player, Jessica provides important strategic guidance and extensive knowledge to each lesson. I'd highly recommend Jessica to any player, as her impressive instruction will surely be helpful to players of all abilities.
Great lesson by analyzing all the moves from both sides.
