About Me:

I love teaching chess, it makes me happy to help others learn and improve.  I am committed to chess 24/7 and I can give you the proper attention and work with you seriously.

In the past 3 years I've been teaching chess in Bangkok, Thailand, where I teached more than 300 students. Previously, I had my own chess school in my hometown Struga for 5 years. In my career I was also a Coach of Macedonian Women's Olympic team from 2008 until 2013.

I am a FIDE Master with two norms for International Master. My highest FIDE rating was 2390. I was a Champion of my country in 2008.

I speak English, Serbian / Croatian and Bulgarian.

    Riste is a wonderful, kind and patient coach.  You can tell that he has a deep love of chess and he is very knowledgeable.  His lessons are interseting and informative but above all, fun!  I would highly recommend him as a coach.

    I can't, because of my work, to have live ON LIVE classes.What about playing online games with comments and teaching during the game?How match it would cost?

    I do not want to just play a master, it would be the same as playing an engine for me.I want to have help in understanding the real situations that would arrive from these games (that would be in the openings I am studying)...Ocasionally I would be available for weekend classes, could it be possible?How much per online game?

    I've had problems with 4 previous coachs that agreed with the online game but did not give advice during it.The experience was just the one of playing an engine ...

    Mr. Menkinoski is a very good coach in my opinion.

    His prize is very reasonable and you can be sure he's caring about student progress and will work hard to make good material for you.

    He'll always answer your questions by mail in detailed.

    The lesson is very clear and very organized. You can learn so many ideas in only 1 hour with him.

    As a human, as said by DottoreNaum, he is very human, kind and patient !

    Believe me, I tried many coaches before. I can assure you he is the one you need.

    I had occasion to met Mr. Menkinoski and to have several chess games and look into some analayzed games made by him, i could say that he is one of the best chess teachers ever met with his particular skill that can carrie over his knowledge to his students. A great wide palette of openings and some masterpieces of chess strategies that even he had played. After all, as a person is very human, kind and patient that gives him high score of performance. Definitively to recommend.
