Patient and flexible, moves at a pace that challenges you but doesnt push too hard which is a delicate balance!

Thank you!
Monte H.
Michael is a stickler for doing things right, but in a nice way. I feel that his mode of teaching is best, because it builds a solid foundation for further learning.
ELLIOT
After a brief intro, Mike explained where're going with his lessons. I was having some problems getting my fingers near certain fret areas he wanted me to work on, so he very kindly placed some colors tape where I'm to put my fingers. That helped a lot. Been practicing an hour per day, & I'm getting a bit better daily. I've got a long way to go, but with Mike's help I'll get there. ELLIOT

I have been playing chess for 20 years and have been teaching for 7 years. Currently, I excel in teaching tactics and getting students to think "that one extra move" ahead. Chess is much more than moving pieces around. Chess teaches countless life values and lessons. Each move has a consequence. Only you get to decide if it's a good or negative consequence. I am physically unable to move the pieces which is why I preach "Use your brain and don't touch the pieces until you are certain of your move!"

I purchased the lessons for my 9 yr old son. He has never played the piano or any instrument before these lessons. Joshua is very talented in his field but I feel he needs to work on his patience. He was always professional but his tone and expressions made my son nervous. I had to stop the classes and loose my payments. I wanted to push my son to finish the classes, however, I didn’t want him to loose his love of music. I hope this comment helps to improve the next person’s experience.
Rosalin
I was surprised that my lesson could be cancelled without any communication. This is our first experience with piano lessons and was excited to try it for the first time. ;(
Melissa
My son has had 2 lessons so far. Joshua has worked with him at the level he is at and helped him when he gets stuck on certain chords and notes. He assigned homework for him to practice during the week and helped him figure out the parts he was stuck on.

Private Chess Teacher

I have started playing chess at the age of 6, and fell in love with the game. I started competing in Nationally Ranked Tournaments at the age of 7 and I kept feeling the drive to compete. I competed in about 150 tournaments since, ranging from small local tournaments to national events. My journey to obtaining the national master title was long and difficult. I got stuck at almost every rating range imaginable. However, in Summer 2019, I finally achieved the National Master title with a National Rating of 2214.

I am still actively playing chess and improving! My current USCF peak rating is 2241 and my current FIDE peak rating is 2119.

Throughout my playing career, I have always loved tutoring chess. The beginnings of my teaching career started with starting a chess club in a non-profit organization in Southern California. I built a curriculum to teach students to play from scratch. I have since taught group classes and private lessons, to students whose skill levels range from not ...

If you're a self-taught chess player that's hit a plateau, and are looking for a coach that's knowledgeable, a good listener, and knows how to help you grow from where you currently are - I'd highly recommend Jameson.

He doesn't spoonfeed you concepts, but instead shows just enough and allows you to work them out yourself, which is how I prefer to learn anyway. Also, he carefully looks over your games to find patterns, areas of improvement, and the habits that are leading to your victories or defeats.

He's not just a knowledgeable chess player, it's clear that he's an experienced chess coach.

Has a deep understanding of chess and is able to explain things well

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 …

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
