About Ezekiel

I am a recently graduated college student from Michigan with an intense passion for teaching. In the past two years I have taught almost 100 students from school and club settings over a variety of topics. Of all these topics I am most enthusiastic about chess.

My chess qualifications include: having a 1700 USCF rating, 2+ years tutoring in elementary /club settings. In 2015 I was the Michigan Class C Champion. In the same year, I was also President of the Michigan State Chess Club.

Before my first lesson I encourage students to tell me a little about themselves and to also send me some of their games. At 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 maybe assigned to reinforce concepts learned during the lesson.

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; they must want to learn. I achieve this by individualizing my lessons for each student. Everyone learns differently and each lesson reflects this fact.

Great!

My son has had several lessons and we love Ezekiel. He even sent an extra lesson to us so my son could practice. He has patiently worked with our schedule and most importantly, patiently worked with my son. We will most certainly keep using EH for our chess lessons!
