Hello! I am a Chess.com content creator and coach. I am also a co-host on The Chess Couch Twitch stream.

I have been a Chess instructor for over 15 years and have worked with hundreds of students in all age ranges. I have the most experience working with those in the 1000-1800 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 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 Cyrus Lakdawala.

 

I achieved the USCF Expert rating in 2002, and have many chess accomplishments:  

 

-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

-2019 October Chess.com Coach of the Month

 

Student references are available upon request, 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
