Introduction: Hi! My name is Vijay. I've been teaching chess for over 12 years. I'm rated 2039 USCF and I give chess lessons both in-person and online. I'm extremely beneficial for players in the beginner-intermediate stage, and also to advanced players up to around 1900. I give fun, engaging lessons in intelligent, yet simple, fluent English. Thank you and looking forward to playing with you!
Just interacting with humans and seeing the different ways their minds think and how they perceive the chessboard - and the world - is very interesting to me. I also enjoy seeing how people really appreciate chess, and how they can get surprised by certain things on a chessboard that they didn't see or realize before. It's kind of like magic tricks, in a way, and is very fun to engage in.
