I find that even though chess is a calculated game of strategy, it is important to utilize creativity and critical thinking skills alongside a strong fundamental base. With that being said, chess has one variable component: the players. When coaching it's important to realize what your students' strengths and weaknesses are in order to maximize progress.

Mark and I had a great time! He's very knowledegable and isn't afraid to share his secrets to winning chess. I also appreciate his flexibility in answering my questions about openings and then playing a couple of games.
