How do online lessons work?

I use Skype plus 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. 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 $40. 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.

Recently, Chess.com University launched the world's best chess-learning program called the Prodigy Program. This program is the first of its kind and I strongly recommend it to all players wanting to improve at chess. Follow the link below to learn more about the Prodigy Program:


I don't have much time for one-on-one students right now but if you are interested in taking a lesson, feel free to message me on Chess.com. If I am unable to teach you myself, I will provide recommendations for other coaches.

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

    Hi GeniusKJ!

    I would like to take a moment to tell you how much your coaching has meant to me. 

    I have become a much stronger chess player, my rating jumped over 100 points, and I have a whole new understanding of chess after our sessions. 

    You coaching style is instructive and you really do not give up until the student understands the principles that you are teaching. I can strongly recommend you and your services to anyone who is under 2200 in rating and takes their chess seriously. 

    Your coaching is worth much more than you are charging!
