Before ever engaging a new client, I like to make sure we are a good fit.
I hold an intro 30 minute chess session to evaluate the clients' needs, and to identify the areas of their game they can improve in most.
I only take on focused clients, who are serious about improving their game, and who feel that I am a good fit for their learning style.
If you are serious about improving your game for the long term, schedule your intro session, let's play a game, and discuss your chess coaching goals!
Chess is my passion
I started competing in chess tournaments in 2012, around the same time I was a senior in high school and the treasurer of my chess club.
As a child, I became super interested in the game, and began beating my father at chess at a very young age.
On average, I play 3 chess tournaments a month.
I work intimately with 7 chess coaching clients at the moment and am launching an intensive 1-week chess camp for middle to high school students this summer.
