Introduction: Welcome, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. First, I am a member of the United States Chess Federation, and currently, tutor children and adults who have minimal or no experience. Secondly, I also work as an educator for the public school system of NYC as a technology teacher as a well as a chess coach. In 2013 my middle school chess team finished 1st place overall in the Non-Rated division (a group mostly encompassed by children with little or no experience). Additionally, I personally compete in tournaments: recently winning 4 of 5 games in the 16TH ANNUAL MANHATTAN OPEN 2017 (NY), allowing me to finish with a 1597 rating. (2018 Update*) I competed in the 17TH ANNUAL MANHATTAN OPEN on August 2018 (NY) and finished 2nd overall with 4 wins and a tie out of five grueling games to conclude with 1674 USCF Rating. I use my two decades of classroom experience to make chess fun and educational. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I contacted Rene Muñoz for chess lessons. I’ve never played chess before, he was very reassuring that with dedication on my end that I would be able to learn the process. He provided me with a resourceful tool that allows me to practice even after our lessons. He is extremely polite and professional. Thank you Me Muńoz

Exceptionally knowledgeable and dedicated! My son will be 7 soon and he really wanted to learn chess. I researched extensively for a patient and experienced coach. I was very fortunate to have found Rene. He is highly experienced and devoted to his lessons. My son can get distracted however Rene incorporates various coaching skills to keep him focused and at the same time, have fun! I truly cannot express Rene’s affable nature and ingenious chess skills. I really appreciated that during the chess lessons, Rene ensures that my son truly understands before moving on to new skills. Rene is also tech savvy, prompt and organized!!
