All Skill Levels
Chess.com stopped records of top selling coaches in March. (I got to #4 among titled players in 11 months here) I am certain I have become the top selling coach on this site, and that's due to the massive amount of students I have acquired since then. Chess is officially my full-time profession now.
Note: I am now teaching chess over 70 hours per week and have limited availability now, so message me before you send any payment...
I certainly have more current students online than any other coach here,and my students improve. Here is a list of other coaches I can recommend:
Effective October 1, 2013, my rates have changed.
My private instruction rates are $25 per hour, or $100 for 5 hours. Online games, $50, includes video after. $30 for a vote chess game vs. your group, 3 days time.

Over 4,000 students have started this program. One of the largest and best in the world! I have more students than any other coach on this site, and it isn't close. http://aww-rats.webs.com/
Note, my online lessons course is free! Donations accepted, referrals are most welcome. This is one of the best programs to learn to play chess at a high level, period. See the link in my website above.
Essentially, I teach you how to teach yourself to be a better chess player. I'll show you how I did it, so you may as well. I believe I can get any dedicated student at least up to my level. Beyond that, well, that's up to you, but you will be ready to proceed!
My program is entirely online through English language videos viewable on YouTube. See my website link above, and read it thoroughly. My weekly course kicked off April 6, 2012.
I have been teaching chess individually and in groups since the 1970's and have had plenty of successful students.
I will play online, rated, at least a 7 day turnaround for moves. Video made after game. Fee is $40.
Join my group! It's growing fast! http://www.chess.com/groups/home/nm-aww-rats-free-video-lessons
