My name is Demetrius Goins to my chess students I'm known as Coach Demetrius. I was born and raised in Oakland,Ca. I first learned the game of chess from my mother and in my teenage years I learned basic chess strategy from my uncle. With my passions for chess I have achieved a chess rating of 2131 USCF and 2114 FIDE. I'm currently active in playing tournaments to reach my goal of 2200 USCF.
I love to teach the game of chess. I strongly believe chess is a tool that can be used to cultivate human abilities through analytical skills and confidence.
