I have always been very active in the teaching world. I grew up studying music from the age of 4 and started teaching the Violin and Piano in 1999. In High school and throughout my college years I excelled at Tennis and gave lessons up until 2006. Since 2001 I have been teaching chess to kids and adults of all levels and this has become my passion.
I have personally molded some of the finest chess players to ever hit a tournament floor. My unique and precise technique for teaching is what elevates me above all other trainers in the same field.
To briefly list some of my accomplishments:
Brooklyn College Chess Club President
6-time Brooklyn College Intramurals Chess Champion
FIDE certified National Instructor since June 2014
Certified USCF Tournament Director
Sole sponsor and creator of the 2008 New York international chess tournament.
Coached national, state, and city championship teams and individual players to first place.
