 I have taught chess lessons to both adults and children with wide range of abilities. My lessons are assembled around the unique need of my student.

Students will come away satisfied with my teaching style of keeping things simple and clear for proper understand. I'm waiting and looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the game with you!
