About Maxwell

My experience as a chess instructor came last year with a company called Educhess. The owner had complete trust in me to teach the classes how he would in his absence. My approach to teaching is to make sure the students are sitting down and paying attention. I keep it fun, and ask them questions. Then I hand out little trinkets, like chess piece keychains, and the kids love those.

My skill and knowledge of the game itself is extensive. I learned at a young age from my father. I read a chess book called "My System" by Aaron Nimzovich. I am quickly able to recognize student weaknesses and correct their thinking processes. I engage the students with a fun, safe environment and I'm often greeted with hugs and admiration.

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

I am a 1651 ranked chess player on standard live games on a leading chess website. I win 55% of the time and continue to improve. Every time I lose I run a computer analysis on my mistake and learn from it. I am a natural teacher and have had great success improving the play of my students.
