I am a chess player, coach, and tutor living in Rockville, MD. I played competitively in high school in Pennsylvania, and was the first seat at Daniel Boone High School, where Richard Jokiel was my coach and mentor. When I went to college to get a BA in Psychology, I stopped competing, and played only for fun. In 2015 I moved to Maryland and started coaching chess at local elementary and middle schools in Montgomery County and the Washington, DC area. In summer 2018 I moved to Hershey, PA, and now teach students in the local area here, as well as online. I am willing to travel to teach students in person, for reasonable compensation. I enjoy working with children, and have several years of experience both in volunteer and job settings working with youth and their families. I am so excited to be able to use my knowledge of chess to help young students learn and grow. I also believe that students who have learning difficulties and developmental delays can benefit from playing chess, and this is what I'm focusing on with my private pupils. I teach my pupils the rules, tactics, and strategy involved with chess and help them work through the learning process so they can become competent players and enjoy playing the game.
