Really fantastic, professional program run by PC - I believe that their organization and attention to detail really make them the best of the best as they are able to dedicate all their time and resource toward the study of chess. This improves the quality of the lessons substantially and makes them the standout amongst a really competitive market. Super impressed.

Coach Vuk has been a tremendous help for me. Always quick to respond, always has time to discuss topics with me, his lessons are always fresh and engaging, and I feel like I’m improving in my chess game just from how Coach Vuk has me thinking of the game from angles I haven’t considered before. I can’t praise this coaching service enough, and Coach Vuk carries my highest possible recommendation.

Coach Warren with MyChessTutor is truly remarkable. His work ethic is outstanding and it shows in all he does. From his lessons to his practice games, he keeps my son engaged and interested. Warren is not only knowledgeable, professional and punctual, but he is kind and compassionate, which is paramount in any teacher/instructor, especially in these times. We truly value and appreciate coach Warren and all the time he has spent with our son and genuinely look forward to watching our son master the game of chess with coach Warren’s guidance and expertise. Thank you PC for pairing our son with coach Warren and for your warm welcoming to MyChessTutor (MCT). I would wholeheartedly recommend MCT (and have) to anyone in need of lessons and guidance with chess.

I have been working with coach Vuk once a week, for about 4 months now and during this time my game has improved substantially. Early on during the sessions, we discussed different aspects of the game in a piecemeal manner. More recently, we have been delving deeper into analyzing my games along with the blunders in a more holistic way. Coach Vuk's approach has been patient, methodical and very helpful for a beginner-intermediate level player such as myself. Early on, I was not even able to calculate without actually moving the pieces on the board but lately my puzzle rating on Lichess has crossed 2100. I have also been able to benefit from the tournaments conducted by MyChessTutor. I enjoy the homework assignments and particularly value the scheduling flexibility and ease of accessibility. I am able to reach my coach outside of sessions with queries, puzzles or any aspect of the game. Due to work, I have had to reschedule my lesson on more than 1 occasion and again Vuk has always been accommodating. I am more than happy with the coaching My Chess Tutor has provided me and plan on signing up my son with them in the near future. In short, I would unreservedly recommend My Chess Tutor.

I am extremely pleased with my son’s coach, Coach Charlize. My son is 5 and he has been taking lessons for 8 months. Part of the reason he stuck with chess is because Charlize is so patient and calm with him. He has made great strides in his chess development. The time and care she takes with him is amazing. She is also very personable and finds ways to connect with my son through their conversations. I would 1000% recommend not only MyChessTutor but especially Charlize. She is special.
