About Me:

I have over six years of experience teaching chess to youth, teens, and adults internationally. In a very short amount of time, I established myself as Chess.com's #1-selling chess coach.

I took a 3-year break from competitive over-the-board chess but will resume pursuing a chess master title starting August, 2014.

I am qualified to teach chess to those rated below 1800 USCF/FIDE.

 

Credentials and Accomplishments:

- Founder and President of Coeur d'Alene Chess Club (2010-2011)

- Coeur d'Alene City Chess Champion 2010-2011

- USCF Certified Tournament Director

- Chess.com Chess Mentor Author

- President of Chess.com University

- Instructor of Chess.com University's best-selling Chess 012, Chess 013, and Chess 014 courses.

- Chess coach of 2013 World Youth Chess Championship contender Rowan James

- Chief organizer for the world's first-ever online chess camp featuring super-GM Boris Gelfand.

- Founder of A+ Tutoring in Moscow, ID

 

How do online lessons work?

I use Skype along with the analysis board in Chess.com's Live Chess server to teach online. Lesson topics are often pre-determined and may include game analysis, instruction on a specific topic, repertoire-building, and training for improving chess skills.

The best way to learn is from your mistakes. Hence, I decide what to teach based on students' recent slow games. When analyzing students’ games, I pinpoint reoccurring mistakes and instruct based on what I believe is best for the student. I create a well-balanced lesson plan for regular students and help them improve all aspects of their game. Additionally, I create opening repertoires for advanced students.

I will gladly teach any topic a student requests as long as I am confident teaching it. I am a flexible and versatile chess coach. I will teach the way the student wants to be taught.

 

My hourly rate for chess coaching is $30. These days my time is limited and I primary teach group lessons, Chess.com University courses, and organize Chess.com University events such as our upcoming chess camp

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, please message me on Chess.com.

    KJ, Could you set it so that I don't get messages every day about classes pitched to players rated 500 Elo below me?

    Hi

    I have just read the blog on chess 013 and am interested.   I am new to chess .com and unrated.   I did olay ches at niversity in Ireland and was a member of the university chess club.  I have been away from the game for quite some years now but want to get beck.  Would 013 be beneficial to me and how do I get into the programe??.  The blog mentions Pay Pal.  I can open an account and put money in there but I do not know how long it takes.  Help.  Chuchuileann

    Mr Joshi, I just wanted u to know that although aawwwwratsack claims to be the big baller of chess.com, you're #1 in my book XOXO. He's a meanie-head lacking hair. I know you don't sleep all that much and I just hope it's unrelated to Kojak's bold claims of his ninja-like knight moves or his general athletic ability. Chess is more than just his ability to play up to 15/0 without a single food break or rest.

    The lessons I've had with Kairav Joshi (GeniusKJ) have been excellent. He has been great at focusing my attention on areas I need to work on and his lessons are always well organized, with clear goals set. As we moved through each lesson he would constantly make sure I was keeping up and understanding how the move or tactical idea related to the strategy or goal we were focused on. When we picked up the next week he'd straight away check that I'd really understood the last lesson (and also that I'd done my homework). He is an excellent chess coach and I'm looking forward to seeing how much better I can get with his guidance.

    I think I played in a Spokane tournament which was during the same weekeend as Boise Champs.

    Boise is a bit far but I'll come down there and compete in the next year or two.
