I did not know that James taught chess. The first thing we did was to play a game of chess to review my strength and weakness. He attempted to teach me how to count the pieces on the board and what pieces were under attack. Where there other pieces protecting those pieces. Look for open files and diagonal for the rooks, bishops, Queen. Look for good moves and find a the best movie. Look for hanging pieces. Suggested playing live chess a move a day.
Dr. Eugene taught me:
How to set up the chess board. Chess notation.

Brandon is amazing, he has become a family friend and mentor in less than a week. My 8yr old son has been trying to learn chess for a while. I found this website and we chose Brandon as our tutor. Brandon is patient, kind, intuitive, and has an easily approachable demeanor that puts his students at ease. My son went from not knowing anything about chess to learning the fundamental pieces and moves in less than 3 days.
