All Skill Levels
Top selling coach on chess.com for last two+ years. They stopped recording this in March 2013 when I outsold all coaches on this site my first 10 months of activity to move up to number 4 overall among titled players. I now have over 30 recurring students taking private lessons. In addition I teach 8 weekly seminars to nearly 100 students. I seriously doubt any coach here has close to the number of students I have.
Note: I have limited availability so message me before you send any payment...
Here is a list of other coaches I can recommend:
My private instruction rates are $25 per hour, or $100 for 5 hours. Online games, $40, includes video after. $50 for a vote chess game vs. your group, 3 days time.

Over 10,000 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
