About Ilya

I am a Class A United States Chess Federation player with 10 years of coaching experience. I have taught chess in group sessions and one on one sessions. I learned the game when I was 5 and played my first tournament when I was 9 years old. I also have a master's degree in applied statistics and have math tutoring experience. My other interests include reading, soccer and sociology.

I have 10 years of experience teaching chess and I keep my students engaged in a variety of ways. I methodically show them the essentials as their building blocks and give them the opportunity to apply their knowledge while coaching them through it.

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 solid tournament player with a rating of 1800+ and I have taught chess for around 10 years. Many of my students have been children and I have good knowledge of how to structure class and what teaching strategies to implement.
