Master Chess from the Opening to the Endgame with a Patient and Experienced Coach
Chess is a great hobby for children and adults alike! Learning chess helps develop and improve critical thinking skills, patience, problem solving skills, and memory, as well as being an incredibly fun game to play. I've been playing chess since I was a child, though recently, as an adult, my love for the game truly ignited. I understand how complex of a game chess is, and I will help you gain a strong grasp over the main concepts involved in the game at whatever pace you prefer. I've been teaching chess for over two years now (through private lessons and at the Los Angeles Chess Club) and my lessons are as fun and engaging as they are educational. We will analyze historical chess games, as well as games that you've played, where we'll learn about common openings, tactical motifs, mating patterns, theoretical endgames, and so much more in our lessons. Whether this is your first time seeing a chess board in your whole life or if you've been a casual player for years, I can help you develop a deeper understanding of all aspects of the game.
About Jessica U.

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.
