I teach beginners, intermediate, and advanced players. Advance players are those who play in tournaments and have a USCF (United States Chess Federation) rating between 1000-1799. For advance players I offer a special package which includes a longer session, PGN (Portable Games Notation) of master level games and access to a chess Share drive.
About Lawrence B.

I have worked independently as a chess teacher for over 14 years. I play in National tournaments and I have an online chess profile. I have worked with two of the largest chess instruction companies in the U.S., Silver Knights and Chess Wizards. My primary focus is with students who play in tournaments but I also work well with people who just want to learn the game. As a self taught player I understand and emphasize with adult players who have time constraints. I have a BS degree in Marketing from Georgetown University I have a MS degree in Information Technology from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. When I am not teaching chess I work as a HR Consultant.

Great instructor! Very knowledgeable and patient. He expands on any question you might have so you walk away from the lesson with a true understanding of the exercises.
