I have worked independently as a chess teacher for over 14 years. I play in National tournaments and I have an online chess profile.

I have worked with two of the largest chess instruction companies in the U.S., Silver Knights and Chess Wizards.

My primary focus is with students who play in tournaments but I also work well with people who just want to learn the game.

As a self taught player I understand and emphasize with adult players who have time constraints.

A recent student of mine placed in the 2015 PA state championship for his age group.

I have a BS degree in Marketing from Georgetown University
I have a MS degree in Information Technology from
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

When I am not teaching chess I work as a HR Consultant.

We just had first lesson with Lawrence.
I thought he was great! He's knowledgeable, patient & experienced.
My son enjoyed his time with Lawrence and he's excited about hie next lesson.
I should probably give him 5, but since it was only one lesson 4 for now. :)
