I wore my wife out tonight, she and Benjamin's Mother went to a movie and when they returned home we ere still doing the lesson. Whenever he makes a move not recommended by Bruce he wants Nero show him why it isn't mentioned. Well I warn all of my students that their score will be effected if I give them more information than what Bruce gives, but somewhere along the way through there are harder positions to explain and somehow the test evil olives into a true lesson and that's ok, but I can't give them their approx rating. Or if I did it's inflated. Ben is ready to be able to use all the resources chess.com has. I showed him chess mentor and explained to only go the lessons that have already been scored, but when I came back my 2390 rating had increased to 2394:-) happy coach. I think his parents will upgrade his membership to Diamond. He starts or drift in the middle game, but when he gets 4-6 moves away for a checkmate he's all over it and sometimes faster Thani can calculate it myself. I'm as proud of him as I ever have been. He's ready to work at it and put in the study time.
