Chess is a great hobby for children and adults alike! Learning chess helps develop and improve critical thinking skills, patience, problem solving skills, and memory, as well as being an incredibly fun game to play. I've been playing chess since I was a child, though recently, as an adult, my love for the game truly ignited. I understand how complex of a game chess is, and I will help you gain a strong grasp over the main concepts involved in the game at whatever pace you prefer. I've been teaching chess for over two years now (through private lessons and at the Los Angeles Chess Club) and my lessons are as fun and engaging as they are educational. We will analyze historical chess games, as well as games that you've played, where we'll learn about common openings, tactical motifs, mating patterns, theoretical endgames, and so much more in our lessons. Whether this is your first time seeing a chess board in your whole life or if you've been a casual player for years, I can help you ...

My students and I have at least one meeting per week with the goal of preparing them for rated competitions. During this meeting, I will go over tactical themes with the student, challenge him/her with puzzles, go over and discuss Grandmaster games and opening variations, or play training games.

I will also chat with the student and find out what she been doing, what she has been working on, and ask her what problems she has encountered during her training.

I'm an advanced player, and Daniel is patient and clear in helping me to improve - he's extremely knowledgeable and provides resources and homework so I can prepare for the next lesson
Susie
I am new to chess will likely be a happy newbie for ever. I appreciate Daniel’s patience and willingness to explain details, sometimes multiple times, and answer basic questions about terminology, how to navigate chess sites, etc.
He is flexible with his lesson plans and adjusts them to meet the needs of his student.
Maria
My 14 year old son had several lessons with Daniel and enjoyed them very much. Daniel is clearly passionate both about chess and teaching. His lessons are always planned in advance and you can request specific topic to be covered. He is very patient, and allows student time to think through moves and strategies. After the lesson, he gives you a 'homework' puzzle to solve, which was reviewed in the following lesson. Definitely recommend!

I have started playing chess at the age of 6, and fell in love with the game. I started competing in Nationally Ranked Tournaments at the age of 7 and I kept feeling the drive to compete. I competed in about 150 tournaments since, ranging from small local tournaments to national events. My journey to obtaining the national master title was long and difficult. I got stuck at almost every rating range imaginable. However, in Summer 2019, I finally achieved the National Master title with a National Rating of 2214.

I am still actively playing chess and improving! My current USCF peak rating is 2241 and my current FIDE peak rating is 2119.

Throughout my playing career, I have always loved tutoring chess. The beginnings of my teaching career started with starting a chess club in a non-profit organization in Southern California. I built a curriculum to teach students to play from scratch. I have since taught group classes and private lessons, to students whose skill levels range from not ...

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
