Chess has been the game that teaches more lessons then just the capture of your opponent's pieces and a victory. Rather, the game is the learning of life-long lessons that will benefit you whether you become a master or stay a novice. The game is never repetetive
and stays unique and fresh.
As a retired teacher with 30 years experience, I have spent most of my work experience in the elementary school level and have been able to instruct English to many students of different cultural backgrounds.
I enjoy the relaxed interaction during the tutorials as I usually learn and benefit from the exchanges.

Chess

Besides playing chess I receive great enjoyment in introducing the game to others and in improving the skill level of those who already play. Chess teaches many thinking skills that can be applied to other areas of life.
My background in chess began some fifty years ago in elementary school ; progressing to high school and college teams. I've introduced the game to many teens and adults and have participated in many chess clubs. Alan Grolnic

The Lesson Was Great — I had his lesson for the first time. It was great. I'm not good at speaking and listening to English, and I would like to improve. He asked my goals and gave me the lesson according to my request. At the first lesson, he taught me correct pronunciation of some words carefully. It was difficult but a big help to me.
