Hello! My name is Andrew Ng and I would love to be your next chess coach. I'm the co-founder and CEO at the chess education startup Chesscademy and my lessons have reached hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
I am a National Master with a USCF rating of 2341. I have won 7 National Scholastic Championships including the 2009 U16 US Cadet Championship. I represented the United States National Team at the 2008 World Youth Championships in Turkey. I won the U18 North American Championship in June 2011. I am the first person ever to have won the Scholar-Chessplayer award, given to high schoolers by the USCF who have demonstrated exemplary accomplishments in chess, academics, and their communities, twice in a row (2011 and 2012). At Princeton University, I have won the 2013 World Team Championship and the 2013 Ivy League Championships. I have also accumulated over $100,000 in chess winnings and scholarships in my career.
I have been a professional chess coach for about 5 years. In high school, I volunteered every week at a nearby chess club in an elementary school and taught around 250 kids. Although I specialize in working with children, my students are of all ages and strengths. My lessons tend to be friendly and entertaining, but I also try my best to give insightful and beneficial advice. My teaching style follows a dialogue-driven approach - I believe that both the mentor and the student must interact for any meaningful progress to be made. Improving your game is my main goal.
Our lessons will take place on the analysis board in Livechess right here on chess.com and I can also offer optional voice chat over Skype or phone.
I guarantee that with me as your teacher, your play will improve significantly.
