About Me:

Current USCF Rating: 1910. Link to my USCF profile can be found here.

I am 16 years old and am a native English speaker.

My website can be found at www.chessknight.net.



I went from roughly 1000 USCF to 1650 USCF in a year.

Multiple students had multi-hundred point jumps within months of taking lessons.

I'm an author - I've published 4 books on chessable.com:

GM Rafael Leitao's Sicilian Najdorf

Fighting Anti-Sicilians for the Najdorf player

Crush the Dragon!

Sicilian Sacrifices: 20 annotated games


Price for coaching:

My current price is $15.00 per hour paid by PayPal.



How to join the lesson:

For online lessons, I normally use chess.com analysis board with Skype. If you are unable to use skype we can use chess.com live chat.

If you live in Round Rock Texas and would like in person lessons, send me a message.


What I can teach:

  • Openings. Theory and thematic ideas.
  • Game analysis. 
  • Middlegames. I can prepare a middlegame topic for the lesson. Middlegame ideas also often come up during game analysis.
  • Endgames. Theory and concepts.
  • During lessons, I can teach other areas of chess upon request.

Due to my current inability to coach in person, I currently have no regular students.

Former OTB students:

There were a lot. Most of them stopped wanting lessons due to me being unavailable for several weeks in a row due to high school business. Send me a private message if you want more information.


Some reviews on my coaching:

"I recently took an introductory lesson from Elijah. This guy is going to be a star. He is very young, but I felt like I was learning from a seasoned Expert or Master (which he will be soon). Great prices, but they are going to go up. He actually spent more time than agreed upon in order to make sure I was pleased and grasping the reasoning behind the moves in the Sicilian. Highly recommended. Right now he is still offering a free introductory lesson. He doesn't try to push his opening repertoire on you...he tailors the lessons to your level, weaknesses, and desires." - Chicken_Monster


"Elijah Logozar is very knowledgeable and taught me about the classics of chess.  I learned so much in a short period of time and had so much fun.  Although he is young, he has an insurmountable grasp of the game.  My rating improved only after a few weeks.  Now my rating is 1930 and I feel comfortable and confident out of the opening.  For the time and cost and friendship, no one can compare." - restraint


"Elijah is a very wonderful person, and I could not ask for a better coach. He helped me very much with my Openings, and I feel very confident playing them. An example- I recently beat a 2000 USCF rated 4 Times with the Prep Elijah had given me against his particular opening (The Grand Prix). Elijah can help teach you opening ideas, such as are very hard to find in a book. My practical play increased by at least 100 rating points after having lessons with him. He also helped me analyze some of my games, and I learned a lot from my own mistakes, that he helped point out. In addition, Elijah is very encouraging, and that alone makes him a joy to be around, a pleasure to work with, and a most qualified coach. I could not recommend a better coach for you.

I only stopped taking lessons from him because of financial reasons, but we still talk a lot. He is a great friend, one that I hope to have for life. I cannot think of any other coach who has the work ethic my friend does, and I think he has a very promising career as a player, and thus, as a coach." - StephenCorelli 


"My coach is Elijah Logozar who is logozar on chess.com. I experienced big rating surges with his help. He is a great coach and he teaches from his heart - he doesn't rip you off like some other coaches." - koudar331
