Great Coach

Nicholas knows his stuff! Saw in seconds what would take me minutes (if ever) to see! He's a pleasure. Thanks Nicholas!

Anthony, 1 lesson with Nicholas

Nick is a really awesome chess tutor!

I went through three tutors before I found Nick. He's knowledgeable, patient, and very kind. I enjoy my lessons, and I am actually getting better. Nick also goes the extra mile and works with me to improve. He also teaches chess to my son, who really loves the game. And it’s in part because of Nick! We’re very happy we found him, and we both look forward to more lessons! I absolutely highly recommend him.

12.Qa4+??

Even with my constant blunders this session, Nicholas was super patient and understanding. Everyone has the occasional bad chess day and he managed to keep the session fun and enjoyable despite my poor decisionmaking in-game. I think it says a lot about a tutor when they can salvage a bad day and turn it into a learning experience. Looking forward to the next lesson!

Very Insightful

Nicholas was able to help me analyze my gameplay and point out mistakes in a constructive manner in order to help me think about situations differently

Amazing tutor - just what I needed!

Nicholas was able to accurately assess my strengths and weaknesses in chess and apply his expertise in order to help me grow as a player. He was super kind and patient during the lesson as well. I'm definitely looking forward to my next session!

Had a great time

The teacher is very nice and helpful. Since he started teaching me chess I feel like I have become a much better player. The thing I like most is that he always seems very happy and enthusiastic.
