My name is Illia Nyzhnyk, and I am a Grandmaster from Ukraine. I am a professional chess player with 20 years of practical experience. I have 7 years of experience working as a chess coach, helping young and aspiring players improve their chess careers (e.g. one of my students became a silver medalist at the World Cadet event). I also worked as a team coach, providing group lessons in SPICE Summer Camps as well as helping Webster University Chess Team. I am offering individual help to players of all levels and ages on the following topics:

  • Basic Understanding

I speak 3 languages fluently – English, Russian, and Ukrainian. Ich spreche auch ein bisschen Deutsch 😊
