I am Woman International Master in Chess (2010) and represented the United States in numerous international tournaments. Professional Chess Coach with over twelve years of teaching experience. Having worked with clients throughout Chicago since 2010. Woman International Master based in NYC. I played competitively and studied chess for the last 22 years. I bring a depth of professional experience and knowledge to those who are eager to expand their minds, talents, and skills. During my professional career, I also managed to accrue 12 years of work experience. I had the privilege of working with amazing international chess organizations such as Chess Without Borders in Chicago, Shanghai Chess Academy from 2016-to 2017, and New York Public/Private schools starting in 2017 where I learned valuable professional skills such as classroom management, course design, and curriculum development. In both my academic and professional life. Beginners are very welcome!

Was absolutely fantastic in her explanations. Made learning chess fun and easy. Will certainly be getting more lessons from her.
With Victoria, my experience was the best it could be! As a beginner, I was initially worried, but Victoria made me feel welcomed throughout my whole experience. I highly recommend her as a tutor!
Viktoria is very knowledgeable, punctual and accommodating/flexible on the teaching schedule. The chess learning that my son had was done on his own, but for some reason, I wanted him to think deeper and evaluate his chess positions better. Though it's been only 2 sessions that he had with Viktoria, he is enjoying it & finding it challenging; Viktoria has given him smart suggestions on different moves. What I liked most about her is that she is very good at guiding the student through the thinking/analyzing process step by step by asking good questions instead of just telling the student what to do. My son feels more confident about his thinking and looks forward to the next lesson.
