I am an experienced chess instructor. I provide in-classroom lessons as well as private in-house sessions. One of my student is a 10 year old who has won several trophies in Mew York tournaments for juniors. I have been playing chess over 32 years. I was a winner of numerous tournaments and become candidate master at the age of 13. For the past few years I have resumed playing chess tournaments in New York and Connecticut. I was awarded a prize for best result in famous Marchall Chess Club tournament recently (April 2011). My rating is currently about 2100. I would like to share my chess experience with beginner, intermediate and advanced level players.
I am a supervisor of University of Bridgeport chess club. Responsibilities include: controlling the club budget, organizing tournaments, supervising participation in local and national tournaments, organizing lectures and other activities.
Why I play chess: The greatest aspect about chess is it makes strategic thinking fun. I treasure the benefits of this game due to their contribution to my academic success. Chess is universal; I can go anywhere in the world and play a game of chess.
Why I teach chess: I enjoy helping young children to develop chess skills, in particular to enhance creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, decision making, memory, concentration, intellectual maturity, and self esteem. I believe that chess heightens the thinking process and helps children to develop into better critical thinkers, problem solvers and decision makers. I believe that chess has helped me and that's why every child should be exposed to the same opportunities.
Chess has long been recognized throughout the world as a builder of strong intellects, but only recently has the international educational community begun to recognize chess's ability to improve the cognitive abilities, rational thinking and reasoning of even the least promising children. Chess brings out latent abilities that have not been reached by traditional educational means. It promotes logical thinking, instills a sense of self confidence and self worth, and improves communication and pattern recognition skills. It teaches the values of hard work, concentration, objectivity, and commitment. As former World Chess Champion Emmanuel Lasker said, "On the chessboard lies and hypocrisy do not survive long."

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.
