About Alec


Bio

Hi! My name is Alec, and I've been playing Chess for around 2 years. During that period, I've managed to go from a rating of 900 all the way up to 2200.

I've been trained by top 100 world-class players and have dedicated thousands of hours to self-improvement. I'm excited to share with you what I've learned throughout my journey to put you on the fast track to success!

I've always excelled in tactics and positional play and am very well-versed in the games and history of the old masters...

I've been trained by top 100 world-class players and have dedicated thousands of hours to self-improvement. I'm excited to share with you what I've learned throughout my journey to put you on the fast track to success!

I've always excelled in tactics and positional play and am very well-versed in the games and history of the old masters like Bobby Fischer, Kasparov, Tal, Nepomniatchi, Carlsen, Botvinnik, Karpov, Steinitz, and etc. etc. I am also an expert at various openings and opening ideas.

From children and seniors, to special needs and college educated, and to millionaires and billionaires, I have loved working with people from all different backgrounds and characteristics. And I hope that you will give me an opportunity to work with you!

Knowledgeable and smart tutor

Alec has a straightforward way to talk to his students, and I have learned a lot so far. Looking forward to more lessons. He uses good examples to convey his points.

Matthew, 17 lessons with Alec

Really showed their knowledge

They did a great job showing what they know and how they take their personal experience into how they improve their chess. What I’ve learned is to learn one thing from each of my games and not to be afraid to try new ideas you saw from a game. Overall, I am excited moving forward.

Kyle, 9 lessons with Alec

Excellent tutor!

Because I know very, very little about chess, Alec started at the beginning. He explained the principles of the game and then we worked on opening moves. He had a great deal of patience with me and answered all of my questions. I really like his approach.

Carol, 5 lessons with Alec

great chess coach

Alec is very sharp coach! He can go through my son’s tournament notations very quickly and showed him the strategies. My son told me that he learns a lot from Alec. I will let them work together, I want to see my son feels confident and fulfill his goal.

Sarah, 2 lessons with Alec

Great instructor!

Alec is very knowledgeable. I definitely suggest him to those who want to get effectively better at playing chess. I am constantly taking classes with him and every time he teaches me new awesome strategies. He makes chess fun and easy to play. I actually started liking chess thanks to Alec (I used to find it boring)
