About Florin F.

I am an International Master and 2015 co-champion of the State of Illinois. I have been coaching full time since 2011 and helping players increase their rating and get more wins! If you have any questions at all send me a message and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Also if you do not see a certain time slot available you can check with me to see if indeed that slot is taken. For lessons I typically use Dasher and Skype (audio only). You could try to use the iOS version instead but it has a few more glitches than the Windows version. You can get a 30 day trial on ICC (Internet Chess Club) after that it will be a monthly subscription but it is the best chess server out there for finding the right kind of players. Right now I am only accepting online lessons, thanks for stopping by!

First lesson and already I have so much helpful direction from Florin. His coaching is exactly what I’ve been looking for. He’s also personable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Florin is a great instructor. I asked my son (age 12) if he used any of Florin's advice/teachings in his latest chess tournament, and he said, "Yes! I used EVERYTHING he taught me." :)

We had great conversation in general and insights in chess. Florin is very engaging and great individual. Overjoyed to have met him. Alex
