• Recent college grad with 3 years of chess tutoring experience, both virtual and in-person. • I have played chess for 10 years, and maintain 2000+ Blitz and Rapid ratings on Lichess.com.

Methodology

Lessons take place in-person or virtually, using tools such as Zoom and board editing software.

First, I will assess client's strengths and weaknesses by playing them in a game of chess, or looking through a recorded game of theirs. Next, I will devise lesson plans on topics (i.e., opening strategy, checkmating principles, synthesizing combinations) tailored to the client. Clients also enjoy showing me recorded games of theirs, and having me walk through their mistakes and accuracies with them.

Lessons are for beginning and intermediate players.

Background

I have three years of experience as a volunteer and paid chess tutor, with students of all ages. I have played chess competitively for many years, placing highly in scholastic tournaments as a kid. Currently, my online ratings are above 2000, with hundreds of hours logged.

This summer, I graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA in International Studies and Anthropology, and moved to Silver Lake, LA. I'm excited to continue teaching the game I love, in-person or online, and know I can make you a better chess player!
