About Baron

I am a lawyer in the East Bay who loves playing games. Games are fun and can provide a strategic advantage in all walks of life.

I believe one of the most difficult games of all time is chess. This is also what makes it the most fascinating. It provides lessons for life that I still use today. The game challenges your short and long term planning, time management and ability to think on your feet.

I have tutored elementary and middle school students from foreign countries in Math, Science, Spelling and Vocabulary in the past and nothing was more heartwarming or rewarding than seeing those kids improve and smile with their new found confidence. I hope you give me the opportunity to teach them a game I love.

High School Chess Champion; Still follows game today. I believe the lessons I learned in chess still help me today as a lawyer.

Available Evenings and Weekends after work.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

Chess is not a school subject, but it's been a lifetime hobby of mine. I've owned and read more than 50 different books on rules, theory, history and analysis of chess. In High School, I won the High School Chess Championship during my Sophomore Year. As a lawyer, I still use methods of thinking from chess in my everyday life.

I have taught several kids and friends how to play the game and still play online today. Here is my basic teaching strategy and lesson plan from basic to advanced: 1. How to set up the board 2.Rules of the game: How pieces move 3. How best to use and move the pieces-Pawn Structure and Spacing Concepts 4. Chess Openings- Which openings are the most popular and the strategic reasons behind them 5. Chess Middlegame- A)How to think for yourself once your memorized moves have been exhausted B) how to look at your opponent's position to anticipate their plan of action C) how to look at your position and decide what is your best plan of action 6. Chess endgame- How to handle different types of endings A)Rook and Pawn endings B)Minor Piece endings C)Endings with all pawns. 7. Checkmate Patterns- How to practice a series of moves to checkmate your opponents 8) Homework Problem Solving- I have various puzzles that I can give for them to work on their game at home and much more depending on how deep they want to learn.
