Knowledgeable, friendly...exactly what I needed

Griffin is obviously very knowledgeable, and has set me up with a good program to learn opens and defenses. Can't wait for our next meeting where we will go over all the questions I know I will have, and also see how I do!

Warren, 1 lesson with Griffin

Patient and Accommodating

I like Griffin's flexibility in how the session is structured in order to fit my learning needs. Whether it is going through the analysis of a previous game I played with a friend to see where my errors occurred, walking through various strategies/tactics, or playing a live game and commentating on what I did well vs areas of improvement, Griffin adapts the session to fit my current questions.

Griffin is a great teacher and encouraged me to think fluidly about chess. He is very knowledgeable and pleasant. I am looking forward to my next lesson. He gave me interesting assignments to prepare.

Mitchell , 3 lessons with Griffin

very patient, great communicator

Griffin is a very good detailed instructor, who will play and point out mistakes and reasons for alternate moves. He’s great and I look forward to more lessons.

Anthony, 2 lessons with Griffin

Great tutor

Griffin reviewed mid game minor piece positioning and showed us a number of king pawn endgames. Griffin is a very knowledgeable chess tutor and I highly recommend him.

Joseph, 1 lesson with Griffin

Great chess teacher

My 7 years old son loves to learn chess tactics with Griffin, Griffin is really patient, listens attentively to all the questions and explains really patiently. He gives assignments and videos to improve his understanding between lessons.

Marcela, 6 lessons with Griffin

It was a great 1st lesson!

My 7 year old liked the class and he understood the concepts reviewed during the lessons. My son was a little bit distracted after 30 minutes but he would like to continue with his lessons (perhaps 30 to 40 minutes only).

Carla, 2 lessons with Griffin

Griff really likes Dubov

Griffin is a great tutor! He takes a more realistic approach to teaching tactics and theory. In stead of being pessimistic, look for a way to improve your position! The way Daniil Dubov would. I will keep taking the lessons from Griff!

Chris, 3 lessons with Griffin

Very thoughtful and knowledgeable!

He analyzed my skills in chess and taught me how different movements and strategies could improve my matches. He also has a thorough understanding of theories and I highly recommend him as a great tutor if you are very interested in or passionate about chess!
