Dear Chess friend,

My name is Gabor Balazs. I am a Hungarian Fide Master, my top rating is 2435. I have been playing chess for 25 years. I won the Hungarian Rapid Championship twice (U16 and U18) and three of my students also reached the Hungarian Rapid Champion title at their age group.

I love teaching chess and it is very important for me that both of us enjoy the lessons besides the hard work. I have pupils at almost all levels from beginners to advanced players (500-2200 rating).
