    I'm looking for a coach with good sense of humor who can make fun of me and the way I play all the time. Do you teach online? What are your prices?

    salutation, ben! so, i may not have a very impressive rating at the moment (fluctuates between 1500 and 1600 blitz), but i'm eager to learn the game better and improve my play. chess is something of an addiction for me: i like to come home after work and lounge from the couch studying past games and reading up on my favorite players. it's something i would eventually like to get a title in, so please believe me when i say i take it seriously and i'd love all the guidence i can possibly get.

    Hi Ben, I am interested in lessons- hopefully 1 every week or so for the foreseeable future. I'm around 1700 USCF. If you had the time it would be great to hear back from you.

    Hi Ben,

    I've been playing for a while now and sone days the game seems to come to me clearly and some days I'm in a fog as to what I'm doing. I need some help to see the clarity of the game without getting caught up in the strategy of the game.

    I hope what I said made some since. Hope to hear from you.
