New to Chess ( <1000), Beginner (1000-1400)
If you are interested in my services, feel free to contact me for more information and view the about me section on my profile. I have a very solid curriculum and I am sure I can help you improve!
I have known Eric for nearly a year here at chess.com. The one thing that sold me on him as a friend was his devotion to chess and unwillingness to settle for anything less than achieving all his goals in life. So, I saw a bit of me in him and have always given him time when he needs it, because good friends are worth my time.
He is rapidly improving as a chess player. He has picked up a lot from ffrom his devotion to the game. Having been around organized chess for over 40 years, I am a pretty decent judge of the potential a rising chess player has, and Eric meets this criterea.
He is a confident chess coach and his students improve.
He has time to complete his academic studies and excels at them.
Eric will earn just about anything he wants in life!
I met Eric a few weeks ago on chess.com. In just a few weeks times, I got to know a lot about him. He is very cooperative and is always ready to help anytime he is around. He is always there to help anyone who needs it, not just the "highly rated players" but everyone. Inspite of the fact that we are 2000 KM apart and I just have talked with him for just few hours , I got the help which even the best of friends will sometimes not receive.
Due to the fact that I was not well acquainted with live chess server, I found it difficult to publicise my self to other players and find other opponents to play with. So, Eric helped me and showed me the various features available on the live chess server. He spared his valuable time to help me setup a successful simul with chess.com. I am grateful for the help I received. Now, I am able to find players, play, and learn through live chess.
He is a person with many qualities. Two of the most important striking features of his character are his unwavering patience and everlasting encouragement. He always helped me time again whenever I made mistakes. Sometimes, rectifying me on the same mistake multiple times. He was always patient in handling these things. He is very descriptive and is excellent teacher . The way he explained almost every feature of chess server and even others on chess.com was really impressive. In a very short time,I was able to use live chess server much more effectively than I was using it for many months. He is also a perfect finisher and does not leave anything for next time. He makes sure that I understood what he wanted to explain. When in need, Eric is what you need.
One lesson with eric. I hope i can have him as teacher more further, at least till i can achieve the master title myself but thats up to him. You are really Tal eric ;)
I greatly enjoyed my lesson. Eric was informative and helpful, and was eager to answer any questions I had. He taught me a new opening that I will definately use and he showed me strategies and tactics and helped me to understand how to use them. I am looking forward to our next lesson!
Congratulations to Eric! He just competed in the Rhode Island Open U1900 section and won first place. Way to go Eric!!
I just had my second lesson with Eric. He gave me a very clear explanation of a what I should be doing with a particular opening.I am impressed with his willingness to send me additional learning materials for study in between lessons.
I just had my first lesson with Eric. He is enthusiastic, really knows what he is doing ,explains things very well, and, most importantly for me, very patient. He was very supportive and I feel like I got off to a good start. I am looking forward to my next lesson.
I just had my first lesson with Eric and it surely will not be the last one!
Eric is very friendly and patient. He managed to encourage me, even while pointing out errors and weaknesses.
I felt he was really quick to estimate my current level accurately, leading him to give me efficient tools to take the first steps towards the next level.
I would recommend Eric to anyone and I look forward to future lessons.
Great lesson, I barely knew anything on the Ponziani, and now I have a great weapon to use against my opponents. Thanks coach!
I had an excellent live game with Eric! During which, he not only pointed out weaknesses played in the game itself but delved into the weakenesses in my thought process that lead to the blunders I made. He focuses on more than the apparent strengths and weaknesses of the player digging out ways to improve one's game. I look forward to more opportunities to learn from him in the future!
