About Socrates

I have been teaching chess for ten years now! From Orange County to Los Angeles County. My youngest student is a 6 yr old kindergarten and my oldest is 97 retiree from Beverly Hills!

I love sharing my passion for this wonderful game of chess!
I believe chess is a powerful tool to help everyone in attaining mental strength and fulfillment! "Chess, like love, like music has the power to make man happy"is my favorite quotation. No matter what age group you belong you will benefit from chess. Young students will enjoy the discipline of concentration as one of the numerous benefits of this game. For the elder, constant play of chess will strengthen their brain cells and be spared from Alzheimer's disease as proven in well documented research.
