Hello! I am a Chess.com partner Twitch streamer and coach. I am a co-host on The Chess Couch, which you can find here:
I have been a Chess instructor for over 15 years and have worked with thousands of students in all age ranges. I have the most experience working with those in the 1200-1800 skill range and specialize in creating opening repertoires, positional understanding and endgame technique.
Needless to say, my training sessions will be tailor-made to fit your specific needs and address your areas of growth.
As a scholastic player/young adult I worked with GM Gregory Kaidanov and GM Alexander Wojtkiewicz. I have also had the pleasure of working with GM Alexander Yermolinsky and IM Daniel Fernandez.
I have many chess accomplishments. Amongst my best results:
-1997 Pan-American Intercollegiate Chess championship 1st place K-12 section
-1998 US Nationals 6th place JV Section
-1998-2000 Multiple State Championships (KY)
-1999 All America Cup 2nd place Blitz tournament
-2011 US Amateur West 1st place Blitz tournament
I have many student references, don't hesitate to ask! English is my native language and I have flexible hourly rates for students of any age. Feel free to contact me with any questions
