Kaneshia is patient and is hands on when teaching. Makes sure you understand and asks questions as you go along to make sure you got it. She encouraged me to bring my own machine so that I know how to use it and get accustom to the machine. Never used it before and she helped me understand the basic use of the machine.

She was very informative and I love that she gave me constructive criticism on my garment. I can’t wait to learn more from her.

I have been playing chess competitively since the mid-70's, am a certified Local Tournament Director, and have run chess clubs in many different locations. My current chess rating puts me in the top 5% of competitive players in Texas and the top 10% nationally.

I have an organized curriculum available which I customize to the needs of the student. Another aspect of our lessons requires playing games so I can see that the student has gained the skill taught, and give them an opportunity to put a new skill to practical use. I make use of problems, special playing situations, and review games the student has played once the student learns to write the moves down using standard move notation.

I also offer discounts for group sessions, if interested.

As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...

Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.

I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!

Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

"Kyle is an amazing instructor! In one session he went over six or seven studies and allowed me to try and work out complicated winning ideas in different positions, and then showed me the correct ones and more importantly, the ideas that a chess player should take away from them. I can genuinely say that even in that one session, I feel like Kyle helped me substantially improve as a chess player."
