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!

I have been coaching chess for many years. What makes chess lessons unique with me is that I make the chess lessons exciting, fun to learn, I point out mistakes/weaknesses in a very kind way, I give good examples of moves/positions relate to real life, I teach people the psychology of playing chess, and I improve people's game through love and repetition. I teach several opening variations as well as middle-game and end-game tactics. But I focus on what people's weaknesses are and I make those weaknesses their greatest strength.

I was stuck in a rut and unsure about how to improve my chess game. After a few lesson with Matt I feel a lot better about where I am at, and have been steadily improving over the last few weeks. Matt was able to figuring out why I was stuck, and what I needed to work on to get my chess abilities to the next level. Would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to improve their game!

My students and I have at least one meeting per week with the goal of preparing them for rated competitions. During this meeting, I will go over tactical themes with the student, challenge him/her with puzzles, go over and discuss Grandmaster games and opening variations, or play training games.

I will also chat with the student and find out what she been doing, what she has been working on, and ask her what problems she has encountered during her training.

My 14 year old son had several lessons with Daniel and enjoyed them very much. Daniel is clearly passionate both about chess and teaching. His lessons are always planned in advance and you can request specific topic to be covered. He is very patient, and allows student time to think through moves and strategies. After the lesson, he gives you a 'homework' puzzle to solve, which was reviewed in the following lesson. Definitely recommend!

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 "ะะพw 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.

"I engaged Matt's service and knowledge to improve my game. I wanted to be able to compete and hold my own against players in the 1600 to 1900 range. Matt instilled in me that you have to have a mental toughness and you have to concentrate on every move if you want to play at a higher level. My game has stepped up. Recently I played a 2300 rated player...and though I lost a tough game, my opponent complimented me saying " you are good but you made a mid-game that cost you." I think with Matt's help I will avoid these mistakes in the future and my game will get even better."

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
