Hello Everyone! My name is Justus Williams and I'm currently attending Webster University, studying under the internationally acclaimed Susan Polgar. Her program, SPICE, at Webster University is the strongest in the nation and has won 5 national championships in a row! I have acquired three IM norms and only need a handful of rating points to break 2400. I have volunteered and coached at various levels ranging from beginner to master level. I enjoy the art of coaching because not only does it give me the opportunity to help improve your game, it also highlights what I need to be doing in my games to continue to be successful.

 

If you are interested in receiving lessons or would like more information, I can be contacted at justus.williams25@gmail.com. Or, I can be reached directly through Chess.com.
