My son Marcus has Arnav teaching Chess since 2020, he has been the most consistent coach as I don't remember my son skipping any class Pre/Post covid. He explains tactics and show the different openings which is very useful for games and competitions. My son has gotten 2nd place in the 2022 California State Championship Competition under his guidance, and we are happy to have Arnav as his coach!
