Overview

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.

Lawrence is the best and passionate chess teacher. He finds articles and other things that really help my son chess skills. I can contact him and schedule lesson as needed. My son loves and eagerly waits for his lessons every week. He is friendly with kids.
