Private Lessons

Individual instruction either takes place in the study room pictured on the left (Upper East Side), or at the student's home. Lessons are individually tailored, but typically include tactical work, strategic understanding, endgame technique, and game analysis. I do not focus on rote memorization, but instead teach a thinking framework that allows my students to navigate a variety of chess positions.
