I’m an avid chess player. It would be my pleasure to share my love of the game with you while enhancing your cognitive skills and have fun while learning the game. Over the past 5 years I’ve helped beginners learn the fundamentals of chess and intermediate players improve their skills. My focus is to instill the fundamentals of the game while you have fun learning.

I own a large collection of reference materials that include books, software and practice materials. I would love to share my knowledge of this fascinating game of chess with you. My hours are flexible. I offer a consultation to determine your knowledge of chess and how I can be of help to you. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor, with easy to learn system and great sense of humor

I am so happy I found Walt as a tutor. I had high hopes and he has far exceeded my every expectation and wish. He always keeps things fun and lighthearted even as he's making fun of my emotional explosions when I didn't see a move :). His approach is the best I have ever experienced. He is systematic and thoughtful and thorough. He understands that one size doesn't fit all and tailors his lessons for where you are at as an individual player and what your particular needs are. His systematic use of puzzles to improve your ability to see the board has been a blessing, and his approach to teach you tactics is game changing. My game is evolving and improving and I can see myself seeing the board in ways I never could before. I highly, highly recommend Walt to anyone looking to improve their game, have fun and learn a systematic approach that is easy to understand and will reap major benefits.

Invested in the Success of His Students!

We could not ask for a better tutor than Walt! He has made Brayden comfortable from the very first day, has help him improve with every single lesson, and most of all has given him the confidence he needs to succeed through his encouraging words and demeanor. We simply could not be more pleased with his professional and caring approach, and that he treats each student as if they were his only student. Thank you so much Walt!

Great job!

My son is enjoying his lessons with Walt. I was hesitant about an online platform for chess instruction, but Walt has showed us lots of tools to be utilized and my son is very excited and engaged. There has been a great balance between fun and education.

Knowledgeable, patient and makes learning fun

His lessons are very Knowledgeable and patient. He uses many of ways to approach learning chess. Some examples are by reading, demonstrating, YouTube lessons, and practice homework. He makes all ways a joy.

Great tactics

Walt blends a nice balance of 1) getting to know you, 2) suggesting tactics you should practice, 3) referring you to other online websites or videos to practice/learn between sessions, and 4) going through a game you are either playing or he is playing to help you learn. If you are looking for an intense/military style teacher - that is definitely NOT Walt. But if you want a more casual and thoughtful teacher who shows you ways of learning chess that you may not be aware of, Walt is someone you should sign up with.

Five step calculations

We focused on tactics using the five step calculations. Walt is very good about not taking me to the next level until I can prove that I am ready for it. Also, Walt creates challenging scenarios that help me develop my middle and end game skill.
