Explore The Possibilities
"Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment."
I started playing competitively in 2005. I received private instruction from the late GM Igor Ivanov. I placed 1st in the Utah Amateur Championship in 2007 and 2nd in the National Class Championships, Class D in 2007. I love coaching, and I love the individuals I get to work with coaching chess and strategy every day.
Looking to really hone your skills? Private lessons may be the way for you, with more individualized instruction, well paced learning, and thorough style identifying you will quickly see yourself becoming the next tournament champion.
Have a local school or library that you think might be interested in hosting a chess club? I am always happy to find new venues that facilitate getting more people involved for a cheaper total price.
