Hello!  I am a Chess.com coach and content creator.  I am a also a co-host on The Chess Couch Twitch stream, which you can find here: 

 

https://www.twitch.tv/thechesscouch

 

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 achieved the USCF Expert rating in 2002, and 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  happy.png
