My name is Michael Porcelli and I have been a chess player for 20 years and a chess coach since 2012. I am a USCF expert (2033) and through private lessons and teaching chess in schools I have had well over 1000 students. My students have been all ages, from as young as 4 up to 80. My education background and high energy helps me connect with my students and meet their individual learning needs. I specialize in taking the beginning player and quickly getting them up to a tournament level. Most of my teaching experience is in the Unrated-1800 rating range. Lessons focus on game review, opening and endgame concepts, and the thinking process while at the board. All students also receive a custom study plan and I help each student fine tune their opening repertoire. I am also available for group lessons. If this sounds like what you or your child are looking for, or if you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on or at
