About Joe


Bio

The modern version of chess has been around since 1200 and still lives on in our social and professional lives. We as a society often sit down around board games and the like, often times bonding over such moments. Chess brings both strategy and tradition to a gathering. The pieces move around the board with elegance and if you don't know what's going on, you could miss a lot.

The modern version of chess has been around since 1200 and still lives on in our social and professional lives. We as a society often sit down around board games and the like, often times bonding over such moments. Chess brings both strategy and tradition to a gathering. The pieces move around the board with elegance and if you don't know what's going on, you could miss a lot.

You're here because you want to learn. My name is Joe, and I have been playing since I was a child. I grew up in the home of a Master from New Zealand. I was lovingly crafted into a chess player, and one of my favorite things to do is pass that on to those willing to learn.

I have a passion for teaching. I want to become a teacher, and this is just a step in the right direction for me. I have patience and dedication. I have the knowledge and the experience. I have everything you need to learn.

I participated in State Championships and won twice in a row 1995 & 1996. I also represented the City of Reno in "Accentuate the Positive" event playing chess - 1995-96.

I am available from 4 pm till 8 pm most days, weekends included. I have a vehicle and can travel if needed. I can accommodate nearly anything. Lessons are 35 dollars an hour and I require 2 hours notice upon cancellation. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
