Lessons are tailored to students weaknesses, will help students improve by going over professional games, tactics, endgames, middle games, and openings. Chess lessons are structured in easy to remember pieces of information instead of loads of theoretical knowledge I have played over 30,000 chess games, so I have seen everything, you can ask any question to any aspect of chess I have been in the top 100 in the United States for my age group twice I have worked with thousands of people for chess everyone from ages 4-adult, everybody has a unique learning style and I have not found one person that was not coachable. Most of my students place in tournaments either first or top 3

Hello! My name is Nicholas Figorito I am a chess expert with nearly a decade of teaching experience. I reached the top 100 for my age group twice. My teaching method is easy to understand and I will cover important topics showcasing professional games, tactics, endgames, middle games and openings using easy to understand language and not endless memorization. Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with you!
