About Me:

Hi my name is Gauri Shankar. I started playing chess since I was 6 and loved it ever since. I'm 19 years old now and I am currently a FIDE Master with a rating of 2310. I recently got my 2nd IM norm in the NACA Fide Invitational in Dec 2011.

If you would like to improve your play and have a passion for chess you will be met with the same enthusiasm from me!

There are many ways I prepare my students:

1. Construct a solid opening repertoire based on the main lines.

2. Go over his/her games and find the mistakes. 

3.Eliminate recurring mistakes by finding out WHY they are played by going to the root cause (mis conception about a position, psychology, lack of understanding)

4. Work on Middlegame: Tactics, typical positions, structures, positional themes, etc.

5. Endgame (Basic skills, typical endgames etc.)

Please contact me for futher details.
