Overview

Hi there, my name is Siddharth Galliara and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, as well as private lessons over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to always make chess a fun loving experience while improving their technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

Mr.Siddharth is a great coach. My kids love him and the lessons he teaches. They were able to quickly learn the basics and new tricks. He spends lot of time with my kids playing against them and help improve their moves. I strongly recommend Mr.Siddharth for chess coaching.

My experience as working along with Sid as his Chess Aide at various school locations; is he has excellent classroom management skills which in turn the students grasp the lessons more quickly. Also, the students are more engaged in the lessons as well. He is aware of making sure all students understand how each piece moves and knows what to do at the end of each lesson before they play a game. He praises each student on their ability and knowledge of chess and helpful with others who are still learning the basics. As a chess aide and helper for Sid, I thoroughly enjoy working with someone who has great enthusiasm!

Sid is an excellent chess coach. My two daughters benefitted from his style and experience in chess. Verrrry gentle with kids and that helps create an environment where kids develop a love for the game. Sid is also easy to work with for parents.
