I have been a teacher for 6 years, teaching in a school setting as well as online with elementary-aged students. With this experience I have learned how to cater to the learning needs of individual students. Because crochet requires a certain level of fine motor skills, I start at age 8. In my crochet lessons we will start at a level that is appropriate and work at the students' pace. My lesson plans involve creating simple projects as we learn various stitches that show off their new skills.

About Meagan

Hello everyone, my name is Danial Asaria and I am a professional chess player that has traveled across the world competing in tournaments representing the U.S. After achieving the master title at age 11, I have become a 5-TIME NATIONAL CHAMPION and am currently the NUMBER ONE 18-year-old on the west coast of the United States. In addition, I have played some of the best in the world including world champion Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura. My peak USCF rating is 2390 and my FIDE rating is 2340 awarding me the titles of national master and FIDE master. (top 5% in the world) I founded the Asaria School of Chess and have taught for three years in chess camps across the state with students ranging from 5-85 years old. One of my biggest teaching accomplishments is assisting one of my students to go from #117 in the country to #13 in the country (gained 500 rating points) for their age group in a matter of 5 months! In addition, one of my students went from 1700-2000+ in less than a ...

Very patient and exciting coach! My son is a beginner and only 9 years old but Danial explained everything in such an easy to understand manner that he was so thrilled after the lesson. Definitely one of, if not the, best teacher on the website.
Hannah
The best teacher I have seen on this platform! My kid has had many different chess coaches, but right from the start I could tell Danial was different. He knew how to explain every concept in such an understandable manner and took the time to make sure she truly grasped every idea. In general he is a very kind teacher who cares deeply about his students. Highly Recommend! She improved 500 rating points!
Jordan
At 34 years old I never expected to be taking chess lessons from a young prodigy who is 15 years younger than me. But I am so happy I took the chance. Danial has not only shown me the beauty in the game, but taught me life lessons that I have even used in my professional career. Each lesson really is specified to what I need to work on, and he can answer any single question I ask on the topic. The best teacher I have had in a very long time, and I would recommend him extremely highly. A diamond in the rough.

"Ok I literally just ended my lesson with Trivia and I wanted to make sure I wrote this review before I forgot. She is AMAZING. Her personality is so fun to start. No question is stupid and she REALLY knows her stuff. I had a project in mind that I've been wanting to work on for cosplay but I just had no idea how to approach the concept. I had messaged Trivia in advance to see if that was something she could help me with since this wasn't exactly a typical sewing lesson. She responded incredibly quick and said it was something we could do. She was able to fit me into a short notice class and broke everything down for me making what I thought would be an overwhelming project seem so much more simple now. I can't wait to start and I will definitely be in touch with her again the further I progress.
And just one other cool tidbit. I am in California and she is in Texas which I thought just added a little something more special to the lesson.
Thank you Trivia! Can't wait to talk again soon."
