     I recently retired as Director of the C&O Family Chess Center, but remain as the Senior Coach.  Montgomery Magazine published an article about our teaching in April of 2021, which begins on page 34.  Currently the Center organizes and runs scholastic chess programs on Zoom under director Ross Pancoast [redross].  I continue to offer private coaching and consulting on Zoom and at the center.  I am currently seeking more adult students, particularly 'seniors' or those who 'used to play' and want to get back into it.  Email, or "message" me here, for details.

     I am a USCF Life Member, formerly a Certified USCF Chess Coach (retired) and full-time, professional, chess teacher with more than 40 years of experience.  I was also formerly a vice-president of the Maryland Chess Association. I have specialized in teaching beginners and intermediate level players regardless of age, including parents and other adults ("It's never too late to have a happy childhood!").
