I have been playing chess for almost 6 years now. Immediately after starting to play seriously, I was able to grasp the concepts necessary to excel at my level and I know what it takes to get better quickly. I am expert level strength (approximately 2000+ rating) and I am looking forward to working with students of all skill levels and ages.
I worked as a volunteer coach for the Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School chess team and helped them achieve impressive results. The team had a 5-2 record at the state championship in 2009, 2010, and 2011 and they were also able to go undefeated and win conference in 2011. Most of them are very successful individual players as well and a good number of them are Class B strength tournament players.
I have been playing tennis for about 8 years now. I started my freshman year in high school and with a lot of practice, I was able to work my way up to 1st doubles.
In high school, I also instructed summer tennis camps where the school hosted dozens of 8th graders who were interested in playing tennis the following year.
After graduating high school, I then moved on to play 2nd singles at Roosevelt University. Since graduating, I have focused more on instructing beginners in tennis and preparing them to play on a team or just have fun on the weekends.
