About Me:

I am a good coach that knows how to properly evaluate a student's strengths and weaknesses and then create a tailor made plan of homework and lessons. My students have ranged from total novice to 2200+  level and they have earned many accomplishments on regional and national level; one even recently made a draw with Anand in a simul! I may not have the GM title but I have decades of experience teaching chess (fulltime since the age of 16) and it helps that English is my native language. So please do not be shy and drop me a message anytime.
