I have been taking lessons from Dipankar for five weeks. My game has already shown improvement. When I started my rating was 1050, now I am at 1250. That is a significant improvement. His lessons are engaging and he provides a lot of feedback. I recently won a difficult game using the tactics and pointers he provided in a recent lesson. I was elated. I recognized the advancement in my game. This coupled with Dipankar's tutelage continues to encourage me to strive for my goal of attaining a 2300 rating. I look forward to see what else I can achieve under his guidance.

We were looking for a chess coach for our 6 year old son. Due to the pandemic, we did not want to take him for in person classes. We were a little skeptical about online chess. But wanted to give it a try.

We got to know Dipankar through TakeLessons. He uses a digital chess board on the screen to play and teach chess. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is very prompt. He adjusts the lessons according to the learning speed of our son. Overall, very pleased with the lessons.

Hand Embroidery is a great way to get started in hand stitching. We can start with basic stitches and work up to more difficult skills. I can help beginners start an easy embroidery sampler and can also challenge experienced embroiderers with advanced stitches.

Ahmet is a good teacher who explains the materials very well. He explains it easily and if you need the Russian translations, it wouldn't be a problem for Ahmet.
My lessons are interesting because I practice Grammar, Speaking, Listening and Writing skills. Since the lessons are always different, I do not have the time to get bored or distracted. Our lessons go so fast that I wonder "Ноw come!? Did I waste my time in vain?"
My skills get better with each lesson, and I dont even notice how. But I know that nothing is better than having lessons with a native speaker. I had a lot of lessons with Ukrainian teachers, but nobody was able to give me as much pleasure while learning English as Ahmet.
You don`t need to worry about your level, because even if you are a beginner, Ahmet will be able to help you since he has a good command of Russian language to explain materials.
