I am really enjoying working with Robin. He is extremely knowledgable and experienced, and has already taught me a lot. He is assessing what I already know and what direction I want to go in, and he is making this totally individualized to the coaching i am looking for. I appreciate his efforts, expertise and thoughtfulness.

I must admit, in the beginning I was reluctant on trying our online lessons. However, Siddharth was awesome. We had connectivity problems and he just rolled with it. The lessons online were great and our boys really enjoy learning chess.

Jean definitely has the heart of a teacher as he explained everything in the simplest form to make it easier to understand. He answered every question with a thorough answer and made sure that I knew what I was doing before he got off the phone. I would definitely recommend him!

I have been coaching students of all ages for the past decade. I am currently coaching for Kids Play Chess in elementary and middle schools while working on improving myself (I intend to become a GM within the next 10 years). I have also taught chess in high school and college environments. I've to chosen to begin coaching 1 on 1 so I can develop more personalized regimens for my students and get the most out of my time and yours. I am currently rated 1900 USCF and have been playing for the past 25 years (since I was three). I would love for you to come and join me on an adventure to become the best chess players possible while having fun along the way!

About Mark
I find that even though chess is a calculated game of strategy, it is important to utilize creativity and critical thinking skills alongside a strong fundamental base. With that being said, chess has one variable component: the players. When coaching it's important to realize what your students' strengths and weaknesses are in order to maximize progress.

About John
Here goes...
I am a chess teacher, tutor, singer, and Shakespearean actor in NYC! I guess you could say I wear a lot of hats.

I graduated with honors in 2009 from New York University with a BFA in Drama. I've been professionally teaching since 2012, but I have always loved sharing the game of chess with anyone who wants to learn (just ask my friends).

Students can expect to face new challenges and to improve each and every week. I am happy to work with students of all different ages and experience levels. As a teacher in the New York Public School system, I know how to make chess simple and friendly enough for Kindergartners, Senior Citizens, and everyone in between! And as an active tournament player (current rating 2000), I can offer great insight into the needs of any skill level. I am thrilled to work with ambitious tournament playe
rs and those who just want to learn how to beat their friends :).

Chess is a wonderful, challenging game, but I truly believe that anyone can learn to play if they are motivated. Come work with me and discover your new obsession!

I started working with John almost a year ago. I was completely new to chess and was interested in learning to play. John has done a great job teaching me the basics (and now some more advanced material) and has also gotten me really excited about the game. Lessons are a nice mix of tactics, broader strategy, and some chess history. It has been really wonderful taking lessons with John. Beyond providing great lessons, he is a really fun and enthusiastic person. It's hard not to be excited about chess when working with him. He is also a dedicated teacher and regularly follows up by email in between lessons, sending homework and lots of resources for outside work.

I have had the pleasure of being one of John's chess students for almost a year and half now, and I can confidently say I have improved leaps and bounds from where I started. While John always has an interactive and challenging lesson planned, I appreciate that the lesson is fluid and adaptable to my particular needs/interests that week, whether it be because I have questions about a specific tactical exercise or master game we are reviewing, or because I have experienced a particularly memorable success or failure in my chess-play that I would like to review. The lessons logically and effectively build upon themselves so that your basic skills are solidified and bolster you as you move on to more complex theories and exercises. As an adult, with a hectic job, I am immensely appreciative of John's flexibility when it comes to arranging lessons and his ability keep me challenged and developing into a more formidable chess player.

I was a World Junior Champion and the best blitz chess player in the world, also ranking in the top 40 in the world and top 2 in the United States. As a chess coach, I have worked with World Champions Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov to prepare them for important matches. Recently, as I have started my own Chess Academy, my students have won 3 National titles in their age group, one World Under 12 championship title, and one North American title for girls under 16 of age. I have dozens of who under my tutelage students quickly became top 50 in their age group in the United States.
I have created a unique proprietary chess program that takes students from beginner to master in two to three years. Studying with me will save you time and will be the most cost-effective way to study chess.
Take lessons with one of the best coaches in North America and start enjoying the benefits of a professional chess coach now!
