Chess Lessons

After struggling for months at chess and reading different materials about it, I decided to get some private lessons. I looked up some schools and based on the great reviews of MyChessTutor I decided to give a try. Luckily, that was the best decision I could have made. The project itself is great, you’re scheduled for an quick evaluation where Priyav will check your chess skills in order to offer you the appropriate learning. After that you will provide your date and time preferences to get your lessons and then you will meet your coach. The lessons are given through video chat and the coach shares his screen, besides that we have several interactive tools to work as well. My coach is Petar Krstic this guy deserves a whole review only to himself. We need just a few minutes to realize that we’re facing someone with a huge knowledge and the best part is that he’s able to break down the complexity of the subject and explain exactly in the way you can understand. He has passion for the game and for teaching, a perfect combination to help who is seeking to learn the game and improve their rating. I highly recommend MyChessTutor!

Chess Lessons

My sons, ages 6 and 8, have been taking online chess lessons with MyChessTutor for the past few months. They are very much enjoying their lessons with Jason and Rachelle, who have both adapted to my sons’ unique learning styles. Both the owner and teachers are responsive and professional.

Chess Lessons

Extremely happy with Charlize, my son's chess coach. I'm impressed with how dedicated she is. One time during a tournament my son joined, Charlize stayed up till 3am her local time just to wait for pairings to come out so she could give advice before the next round started. My son also made great progress. He had never won a single chess game before, but after 4-5 months of starting chess lessons with Charlize, he's now enjoying tournaments and winning some trophies! Highly recommend the private lessons offered through MyChessTutor.

Chess Lessons

I can say without any hyperbole that going with Priyav, his crew, and Coach Craig has been the single best decision I have made for my Chess game, hands down. After only 4 weeks of lessons, I am shocked by the tangible improvements to my game after years of being stuck. I think this is because of the practical and precise approach, where after careful evaluation my weaknesses were identified. Then, specific ideas, techniques, trainings, and homework were employed to correct my issues. I was met where I am, and now I have an ally in where I want to go with my game. Yet not only are the lessons rigorous, thorough, and effective, they are always fun, fascinating, and enthusiastic, even when the training is tough! I feel that I am not only getting Chess lessons, but a supportive and diverse community through perks like monthly student tournaments and chat options with my coach. Check out this graph of my rating with Deep Shredder. The area in yellow is my progress over 4 weeks of training with coach Craig. It is great to see calculable progress!
