Chess With Tony

My 5-year old daughter just had her first lesson with Tony yesterday. Five star rating, unquestionable: - Easy planning & communication to set it up with Tony. He also arrived on time (sorry, this may seem obvious but these days that's often forgotten) - He was very sweet and patient with my 5yo - The first basic moves were explained using metafors like "trains" and "lasers" (= great for children) - In as little as an hour, they were playing a very basic game against each other, using only two pieces. I could see my daughter's brain working hard :) Teaching chess is a labor of love for Tony. It's not just a quick instruction for cash. My daughter had a great experience and she immediately agreed to a follow-up lesson. She's been telling everybody that "she played chess" and even drew the board & pieces at home. Success!

Lauren is great: patient, friendly, punctual, and most importantly, she knows what she is doing and is good at explaining it. I really enjoy studying chess with her.

Kaptain Kirk's teaching method leaves none ahead. As students, in our first class, we learned a bit about chess history& the chess pieces and we learned about how the King, Queen and pawns move by actually playing very simple games, all with having fun in mind, which we certainly did!

Joyce was a child chess prodigy and it shows. She has an uncanny knack for strategy and is an excellent coach. Highly recommend taking a class with her.

It is not easy to find a good chess teacher in Bay Area but I am lucky to find Igor. Igor is very easy-going, patient and experienced chess teacher. He will teach you chess tactics, openings, and help you to practice more and analyze the games. Under his help you will learn from the beginning. I scheduled a multi-session class with Igor and am continuing my study. And I will recommend Igor to anyone who wants to know the art of chess!
