I am a USCF Life Member, formerly Certified USCF Chess Coach (retired) and full-time, professional, chess teacher with more than 40 years of experience. I was formerly a vice-president of the Maryland Chess Association. I specialize in teaching chess to beginners and intermediate players regardless of age, including adults (often parents), who "used to play" and want to get back into it ( "It's never too late to have a happy childhood!" ).
I recently retired as Director of the C&O Family Chess Center, but remain as the Senior Coach. Currently the Center organizes and runs scholastic chess clubs and programs at a number of local schools, both public and private, and at the center.
