Private Chess Teacher

I am a passionate chess coach available for instruction of all levels. I have been teaching for over 10 years in many schools and training private students. I have helped establish top chess teams recently including NEST+M, PS33, and Success Academy.

Several of my students achieved highest performance awards - top 100 in the country, two of which are now rated as high as 2300. I have taught an advanced class with chess world champion Magnus Carlsen. I make learning and playing chess enjoyable and fun. I have achieved a Candidate Master title with FIDE and USCF ratings of approximately 2100.

I have a business degree in finance from Bentley University and have worked several years on Wall Street. I enjoy all aspects of risk management and how it combines elements along with chess. I love working with children and have a strong track record of making many strong relationships. You will not find a more dedicated coach. My average student gains 200-800 points in strength quickly! ...

I will teach you the great game of chess! I am experienced in teaching players of all ages, from total beginners to the high intermediate range of 1600-1700 ELO.

I will help you absorb key motifs and strategic plans in an enjoyable way, by guiding you through a carefully selected set of brilliant games and thematic positions which will boost your understanding. To balance out this conceptual work, we will learn concrete chess thought processes which are actually applicable throughout life: how to use the principle of falsification to sort good-looking moves from truly effective ones, how to manage your time both in training and over the board, how to select an opening and prepare a repertoire, and how to evaluate and understand any chess position. Ambitious players, including kids looking to break into tournament play, can look forward to my tried and tested methods for rapid chess improvement, which are based around rigorous tactical training, while casual players looking for a ...

Hassan went above and beyond as a chess instructor. Before we met, he went thru my games and familiarized himself with how I play and found my weaknesses. When we joined the call, he had some sample positions for me to analyze and did a great job explaining how I should approach that position. Hassan also frequently took the time to make sure I understood the concept and made sure to come up with sample situations for any question that I had. Within 1 lesson, I felt that I had much better grasp of how to improve and what I need to work on. Strongly recommend Hassan to anyone who wants to take their chess game to the next level
Hari
Hassan is amazing! He helped me gain a new perspective, and better understanding of my strengths and weaknesses. His personalised list of tactics to practice and grandmaster games to study has helped me tremendously to improve. He continues to support and guide me post-lesson. A highly recommended instructor!
Nihal
I met Hassan over video call, and sent him a lichess study of my previous classical games. He was incredibly flexible, helpful, and instructive. He was tremendously good at teaching patterns, middlegame planning, as well as giving me general opening advice. I would wholeheartedly recommend him as an instructor.

He appreciates how patient his instructor is and the positive reinforcement provided during the lessons. As a parent, I like getting updates on his progress and additional 'homework' (puzzles) he gets - definitely comes in handy during this quarantine phase.
We definitely recommend Siddharth G. to anyone looking to learn chess, improve or get to the next level."

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …

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

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing all the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction to learn ch …

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …
