Ryan travelled to my home to give me a piano lesson. Not only did he teach me about technique, but he also taught me more about music than I thought here was to learn! He gave me knowledge about theory and composition that, instead of being boring and dry, actually inspired me to keep going with my studies. I'm look forward to our future lessons!
My son liked chess before lessons, and absolutely loves chess after only two lessons. He looks forward to his class all week! And his skills have tremendously improved. I couldn't be more satisfied.
Michael's very easy to get along with, reasonably priced and flexible. I've been taking chess lessons for a month now and I feel encouraged about my game. I look forward to my lessons each week. Also I know he's willing to teach all ages.
John is a wonderful chess instructor. He doesn't focus on rote memorization, but on themes that arise throughout the game. He's adept at teaching to requests, but also at bringing relevant problems and games to review. I've found his instruction incredibly helpful in developing my gameplay.

Hello Chess Enthusiast, My name is Kent Leung and I am a director for the International Chess Institute (ICI), a well-known chess coaching company. The ICI is ranked best chess institute in the United States for chess coaching. I currently have an opening for 2 new students. I coach students of all levels and ages with the highest success rate in the New England area for the past 7 years. I have coached 7 State champions and 6 National champions in the past 7 years. My rate is $40 per hour for one-on-one coaching and I also offer group classes as well. My rate for group classes is $20 per student or $10 per student if you have 5 or more students. If you are looking for a rate below $40 per hour I will be more than willing to recommend another qualified chess instructor. I am available in all areas in Massachusetts and offer online coaching. Regardless of what area you live in the International Chess Institute has a chess coaching studio and chess instructor to provide top-level coaching.
