Josh is a great tutor!

Josh has been working with our daughter over the summer to help her in areas where she needed improvement and to help retain her math skills while away from school. He has been a very fun and patient tutor and has great communication. We really appreciate all of the help he has provided for us!

Tristen, 9 lessons with Josh

Great coach

My son has been learning Chess with Josh for a few weeks. Josh is very knowledgeable, kind and patient coach. My son is enjoying and has fun on his sessions and chess camp.

Ming, 4 lessons with Josh

Friendly and knowledgeable

Josh was great with my 10 year old for his first lesson. He worked on basics of chess and helped prompt him to think a little differently. My son is enthusiastic and excited. Audio and video are done on his cell phone, which does make it a little more challenging to hear and engage as well - but otherwise very good.

patient tutor

Josh is quite patient with kids! I believe it is difficult to teach kids online because some can get distracted so easily. Josh stays chill and reminds my guy of his next choice move.

Kathleen , 10 lessons with Josh

Very knowledgeable about Chess

He clearly knows how to read the board and what a chess puzzle is actually “asking’ . Over time, I’m hopeful that he will impart that knowledge to me with a structured curriculum.

Maggie, 3 lessons with Josh

Awesome tutor!

My daughter had a BLAST working with Josh on slope intercept. She was fully engaged and enjoying herself the entire time. Upon the completion of her session she felt more confident with her graphing and understanding of slope intercept. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone in need of some assistance in math. We can’t wait til we have our chess lesson with him too.

Great coach

Josh is very involved and passionate about teaching chess. My son is thoroughly enjoying his lessons and weekend kids tournaments

Venketesh, 16 lessons with Josh

Great With Beginners

Coach Josh was excellent with our grandkids (ages 6, 10 and 13 years). Very patient and reassuring. They all had fun which was surprising since they are beginners. Each child was given additiinal activities to do on their own. Coach has an online club at ChessKid where his students can play each other. The coach reviews their work and gives us feedback throughout the week. It's a great way for the kids to learn and practice between lessons.  Lessons were fun and I enjoyed myself. I was pleasantly surprised!

Gail, 1 lesson with Josh

Great teacher, very concise and fun first lesson.

I'm a beginner at chess and had my first lesson ever with Josh. Going in I was a bit skeptical as to how useful a live lesson would be, but Josh was extremely friendly and was able to create a session that fit my skill level and kept things fun and interesting. I'd highly recommend him as a tutor for anyone on the fence about getting lessons!

Albert, 1 lesson with Josh

Highly knowledgeable and patient coach

Josh is helping my 6 year old to learn chess, he enjoys playing on chess kid.com with coach. He already so much just with couple of lessons, he is always excited for upcoming lessons thanks to Josh fun filled approach. I highly recommend Josh for learning and improving your Chess game.
