About Gyula

Hello! I would like to be your tutor who will not only inspire and motivate you but provide you with essential skills to succeed in your goals. As an immigrant with 3 children, all grown up now, I went through the struggles to learn English, going to college, became a chess coach, and opened a business as a motivational hypnotist.

I had ESL students from Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Italy, Venezuela, and from Mexico in the past and recently from Central and South America I tutored students at the Nevins Memorial Library in Methuen, MA.

My chess students won city, and privincial tournaments and also achieved 2nd and 3rd places on Canadian National Youth Championships. I instructed students at the Saugus Public Library for about 2 years from age 6 to 18.

I love teaching students of all ages. I believe that the learning process should involve entertaining and motivational activities.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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've been a chess instructor for a long time. My students won school and city wide championships, individually and in group.

One of my students was 4th and then 2nd on the Canadian National Youth Chess Championship in the late 1990s.

I teach chess by using the Hungarian/Russian model. For complete beginners, the students
would learn moves, tactics, strategies of chess using only 2-3 pieces on the board at any given time until they learned how each piece move.

Handouts are given out after every lesson.

Every lesson starts with the homework that includes chess puzzles, tactics, and strategies.

ESL/ESOL

I had many students in the past who needed to improve their communication skills in English. They came from Japan, South Korea, Italy, Venezuela, Mexico, and Latino immigrants living in the area.

After I earned a degree in Psychology at college, I also received a certification in ESL/ESOL. We, I and the student(s, discuss and develop study plans depending on their short and long term goals.
Being an entertainer by myself, I'm able to motivate and guide students to become more efficient communicators in the real world.

I did some TOEFL preparation with some students as well.

Public Speaking

I'm a comedy stage hypnotist since 1998 who perform entertainment approx. 15-25 times a year for various groups of people including corporate, school, and private functions. I've been presenting hypnosis workshops and training for the last 2 years in Las Vegas, NV for fellow hypnotists and lay people all over the world. On those HTLIVE 2014-2015, I've conducted 1-hour and 2-hour presentations and also 2-day presentations for groups of people interested in that subject matter. Last July, I was also invited to a 2-day presentation for a group in Szolnok, Hungary. Besides hypnosis and psychology, I had many chess related presentations at various schools in London, Canada and at libraries in Methuen, MA and Saugus, MA.
