I was a chess tutor for Elementary and Middle School aged kids for 3 years. I helped them learn how to play, get better at playing, and also facilitated events for my students to compete in chess. I have played Chess since I was 4 and before I stopped competing, I had a ranking of around 1600. I was also the President of my school's 30 member Chess Club when I was in high school. I think Chess is incredibly fun and beneficial to a young mind. I hope I can teach you what I know!

About McKenna M.

I am a 20 year old business student and musician for life. My lessons are 100% about the love of music. I have played piano for 12 years and have been trained as a vocalist for 6 years.
I have worked with kids since I was 11, starting as a babysitter then moving to being a Chess tutor and independent music teacher. My experience lies mostly with kids ages 4-13, however I have worked with Beginner-Intermediate adults as well.
I love watching people become passionate about their art as well as to watch people grow and become more successful. I want my students to know that failure is just as important as success. Failure is what drives people to become better. I hope to be the person that lifts you up when you fail and to keep you going.
I look forward to working with you on your musical journey!

McKenna has a great style where she continually challenges me to push my thinking but also keeps the lesson fun and shares the way she would think about a given situation. This was my third or fourth lesson with her, she clearly comes in with a game plan to make me incrementally better each week, and always concludes the lesson with some things for me to think about for next time or when I'm playing with my friends. She clearly has a brillant chess mind but more importantly for me is a great teacher.

McKenna was patient with my 6-year-old.
