Kevin H.
Verified review

Kevin provided chess instruction not only to me personally, but he went out of his way to provide feedback on the games of my high school players as well as instruction for them - both in a small group setting and individual setting. The quality of the instruction is excellent - he breaks chess down to simple to remember principles and his approach of learning through historical games (and then working your way up to modern ideas) is highly effective. He is always the first person I recommend when I am approached by my players to get individual chess coaching.

Ryan is extremely helpful! He knows his stuff and made sure I left each lesson with a clear understanding of core math and physics concepts. He is great at explaining the material, and he took his time answering my questions. He's also very detail oriented which is a major plus! I felt very comfortable asking him anything related to the material. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.

Verified review

Thomas is great at chess, and a very insightful teacher. Other people bid lower but I felt like he was the best bet. No regrets at all, two lessons in and I'm already improving significantly.

About

Teaching chess from an earlier age allows children to develop skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, spatial awareness etc. I have specifically designed courses for each level and I teach high quality lessons and unique positional training with structured plans of improvement. This summer, give your child something which s/he will never regret in his/her lifetime.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
