I'm a NYC-based master looking to get into finance. My interests are travel, languages, and of course, chess. I'm able to read Chinese but not speak it, and am in the midst of learning French.

Coaching: I have many years of experience in coaching. One of my students has recently gone from 1400 to 2100 in under 3 years.  I have a great understanding of where improvement comes from. My rates are competitive. Message me for details.


Mentorship: I believe that improvement can be done largely on one's own. However a guide for how to do this can save one innumerable amounts of time and effort dedicated to the wrong areas. That is why I'm also offering mentoring services. You would send me 25 of your games. I'd diagnose your style/play, weaknesses, strengths and create a detailed schedule for you to improve your chess on your own. This would include a list of various recommended literature (and if need be, other learning tools).  As analyzing an adequate amount of games requires more time than a normal private lesson, this would also cost more than one. However given that this study plan would relieve the need for an expensive coach, it could end up saving you a lot of money. Message me for details.
