I am GM Krasimir Rusev, professional chess player and head coach at I graduated from the National Sports Academy in Bulgaria with a Bachelor’s degree in Chess Pedagogy, a four-year undergraduate chess education program intending to prepare top-level chess trainers, mentors, and professional seconds of the World Championship contenders. Since my graduation, I have been actively involved with both competitive chess and chess coaching. I have over 5 years of first-hand coaching experience, producing excellent players including the 2012 European Youth Chess Champion U8FM Tsvetan Stoyanov, the winner of many strong tournaments, IM Plamen Mladenov (2376), and his older brother, NM Ilian Mladenov (2235) among many other distinguished players. I have taught both very young kids and many adults with great success and helped them realize their full potential on the chess board. My coaching method has been developed and tested for many years and strikes the balance between my chess skills and knowledge as Grandmaster and my teaching expertise gained during my college years working toward my Chess Pedagogy degree.

If you are looking to improve your chess, you have come to the right place.

Remember that everyone has some very specific weaknesses in their playing style, so I will point out yours and tell you how to fix them then and there!
