Batu is really amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable in chess and perhaps more importantly is able to connect with kids.
I would take more lessons from him in future.

Batu has been a wonderful teacher for our daughter, age 16, in pre-calculus. He is calm and focused and just the perfect balance for a 16 year old girl! Our daughter's grade has gone from a D to a B in the class! We could not be more pleased with the results and with Batu.

Batu has been teaching my two girls, 5 and 7 year old, chess. The lessons have been great, not only he teaches them the fundamentals, he also changes his teaching methods to match their needs. He relates them and makes the lessons fun and exciting. I'd suggest everybody to try his lessons out, not only chess.

Judy is a very patient and passionate teacher. I have very little Spanish experience, and she took my skill level as well as my own personal requests regarding the lessons into account. It was easy to tell that she has years of experience backing her and was a pleasure as soon as the first lesson began. Should my time open up again, I will definitely try and get in contact her.. assuming she isn't swamped with students then!
