Introduction: My name is Lazar and I am a FIDE Candidate Master (Fide ELO 2028) and 2500 ELO online and have returned to the game to go for the Grand Master title. I currently teach full time in and enjoy spending my time doing so. I teach remotely and in person to people of all ages, ranging from after school programs to the adult lessons at Complete Chess. Anytime I am not teaching, I am studying and improving my chances for the Grandmaster title. I am articulate in speaking my ideas across the board and am certain that when my students enjoy the game they realize an ELO of 2000 is easily in reach. I also host online tournaments amongst my students through my own team Arena on lichess.org. It is free and the link to join can be found in my bio by clicking the BalkanChess team mentioned above.

Lazar is extremely informative about the game of chess and is very helpful when learning. He likes to make you choose what the best move is an includes you in the lesson. He gave me the motivation to push to 1000 and even told me I’m above that. He’s a very great coach and informative. 11/10 recommend him to get better at chess and learn about the game.

My 7 year old son has been learning with Coach Lazar for 3 weeks and is showing tremendous improvement after each class. Coach Lazar is a responsive and passionate coach who is willing to go above and beyond to evaluate my sons online games so that he teaches based on ongoing chess performance.

Excellent first lesson with Lazar. Setting up the lesson was so easy and he went out of his way to understand my playing style before the lesson so he could focus on what I needed help with. Will definitely be continuing lessons and highly recommend him for intermediate players looking to improve their game.

Lazar is an amazing teacher. He will not only help with chess principles but will analyze your games so that you can see where mistakes were made. This isn't something you can get from a computer analysis, Lazar takes you through the moves and the reasoning/rationale behind each position.
