I’m a National Chess Master (USCF), A LifeMaster title and I have a FIDE rating of 2275. I coach on chess.com and what I bring to the game as a teacher is a unique perspective in that I started out as a HORRIBLE player and worked my way up from the bottom. Just like you I was not a child protégé and I worked hard to gain rating points. What I offer that others don’t is a way of explaining the game in how ordinary people think and approach the game and how we have to modify our thoughts to be like the “BIG GUYS”.
