I'm Zeke! I'm a full time chess coach who is passionate about sharing my love of chess with my students. While at Michigan State University I served as vice president and eventually president of MSU's chess club. In 2015 and 2017, I won the Michigan Master/Expert Class Championship for class C and class B, respectively. After college, I was hired as the lead instructor for a local club. Currently, I tutor chess full time, both online and in-person, with many of my students going on to become very strong players.

When I teach I try to instill a deep love for the subject matter. My philosophy is that a student cannot be forced to learn but must want to learn. I achieve this by individualizing my lessons for each student and their playing style. Everyone learns differently and each lesson reflects this fact.

Before our first lesson, I encourage students to tell me a little about themselves and to also send me some of their games. During our first lesson, I try to establish a baseline of skill and playing style. At the end of our lessons and, only If the student wishes, fun work may be assigned to reinforce concepts learned during the lesson.

Great Tutor

My son who is 7 likes Ezekiel very much and definitely really enjoys his lesson. I believe my son would get progress in chess with Ezekiel’s help.

Awesomely patient and engaging teacher!

Coach Zeke is a really fun, patient and engaging coach to work with. He works with my son to identify the right level of materials to teach, and where his interests are to make every lesson challenging at the right level. Coach Zeke also works outside the tutoring session to recommend great learning resources, including chess puzzles, books etc.

Patient, Fun and Dedicated Tutor

Zeke has been amazing with my 7 year old son. His calm, patient and easy-going demeanor immediately made my son feel very comfortable and eager to play chess. Zeke also has a way of making the lessons fun and quirky. My son loves his lessons with Zeke so much that he has asked to have lessons with him every single day. Zeke is also very communicative and responds to questions very promptly. We highly recommend Zeke to anyone.

Patient and insightful

Ezekiel took me through a practice chess match and identified areas where I could focus to improve my game. He took extra time to cite practice resources for my specific needs. I heartily recommend.

Best chess tutor on Wyzant

We have worked with a handful of chess tutors on Wyzant. Ezekiel is above and beyond superior to any of the others. He’s really engaging and fun.
