About Me:

Hello everyone,

I am 52 years old and have taught Chess, Math, and Physics to hundreds of students of all ages for more than 25 years.

My youngest student was 3 years old which is also the age I played my first tournament game! (I needed a bit of help to write down the moves) 

My tournament career is ongoing and I maintain over 15 games per day here on chess.com  (check out my games!)

    Hi, I do not like reading chess books to improve my game unless you have a book that you recommend.  What is the best way to improve my game on this site or other sites that you would recommend?  I am around the 1300 level at 3 minute games.  I live in Stratford Ontario and do not want to spend a lot of money on lessons.  I am having trouble taking my game to the next level.  Thanks for now, Alex

    Hi Bill, I am interested in developing a coaching relationship with you. I am relatively new to chess, although I played more when I was younger, I havn't played much sense. I am quite busy with work and life Foot in mouth, which is good but I want to make sure that you understand I cannot devote 100% of time to chess. I would like to be able to understand how to progress in my abilities  as I've reached a bit of a plateau. I'm not so much interested in a one or two time event as much as a longer on-going relationship. My initial thoughts are twice monthly sessions with recommendations for study, review of recent games and perhaps some real-time playing. What are your thoughts, rates, etc in this regard.

    Thanks for your response.

    I live in Boston and am looking for a coach.  I do not know how a coach on www.chess.com works.  I presume from what it looks like that it is done over the telephone.  617-529-6891  tcjay@gis.net  I have played for a long time but see to play at the 1200 level or there abouts......  It really depends on the day.  I look forward to hearing from you.  TOm
