Hello! My name is Tatev Abrahamyan and I'm a Women's Grandmaster from Los Angeles, CA. My USCF rating is 2448 and FIDE rating is 2350, which makes me one of the 3rd highest rated female players in the United States.
Some of my accomplishments are:
- currently 3rd highest rated female player in the US
- represented the US in 4 Olympiads (2008, 2010, 2012, 2014) and two World Team Championship (2009, 2013)
- Participated in the Women's World Championship
- Tied for 1st-2nd place in the 2011 and 2014US Women's Championship
I started playing chess when I was 8 years old and spent the next 5 years studying in Armenia until I moved to the United States at the age of 13. From the very beginning, I have been coached by trainers who have employed the famous Russian method of teaching. I believe it is a very effective method and have employed them in my curriculum. I am looking for students who are serious about improving and are willing to spend the time and effort required to take their game to the next level. If you are that student, feel free to message me!
