    Coach K is thorough and articulates the complexities of chess in an easy to understand manner. I look forward to our lessons and am excited to gain clarity after each lesson. He is ready to feed knowledge if you have the hunger! I enjoy chess more now that my strategic and tactical insights are growing. His rates are very reasonable and his scheduling is very accommodating. My progress is easily mapped in my games now. It is way more fun having a larger bag of tricks! Thanks Coach!

    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!
