this looks...............sus cuz it looks like it was copide from somewhere..........................?

Some of the reviews have been copy/pasted, because I asked my students to share their thoughts on three different links. They originally composed their reviews on one link and then copy/pasted them across the other two.

The other two links are: [https://www.chess.com/forum/view/chess-lessons/feedback-from-my-students-1] and [https://youtu.be/0eTB7oHeRgM?si=a8FiUP8p4yIgWNAS].

Excellent chess coach I've been on and off with chess for 2 years now and after my first session I climbed 200 elo. Implementing the principles taught. I would recommend.

The coach is very special and his lessons are different from GM, IM, WGM, FM lessons I've had before. He is not filling the lessons with only theory but makes you think very deeply and understand this game of chess. At first I thought this is a waste of time but now I can see I play alot better when I take the time. He cares alot for the student and sent useful tips after the lessons also. This takes alot of his time but he doesn't care as long as the student makes progress. I would recommend the coach and YOU should try it out and see if the coach is something for you!

Thank you!

I've had two teachers from Jamaica, both of whom were subpar, in my opinion. One of them just held Jeremy Silman's "How to Reassess Your Chess" up to the camera and asked me to solve problems I could do myself. I learned nothing from him. Is this one of your teaching methods? If so, I'll pass. If not, I may be interested. I considered buying ten lessons at a time and then reassessing if I wanted to continue. I'm retired so that I can devote time to my homework. I need encouragement and a training plan that you will review with me to ensure I'm digesting the material. And the more encouragement I get, the more I like the lessons. Finally, I'd like to prepare for the Denver Open next May. Thank you for considering me.

I just received this message from my student:

Dualeco

^ That was me!

Couldn't imagine a smoother experience for my level and my expectations were outperformed.

At first I was nervous if taking a coach was a reasonable investment (I studied everything myself before).

But taking lessons gave me an immediate boost in performance. Having someone who can give some good advice surely makes charms.

Dino is a patient and encouraging teacher. I highly recommend him. One-hour lessons feel like only 5 minutes. The time flies by. He corrects the flaws in my thinking and encourages me to find better alternative moves. Memorizing his algorithms has helped a great deal. I no longer freeze when I face a good move by my opponent. I'm blundering less and improving with practice. Thank you, Dino!
