About Lance

I have taught students ranging from elementary school to high school for many years, including my own children. I began teaching children in Sunday school at church when I was a high school student, and have also been involved in taking care of and teaching children on church retreats.

I am an avid chess fan and enjoy playing frequently, both casual games and in tournaments. I learned chess when I was 9 years old

I love teaching chess to young children and to see their eyes light up as they learn how each piece moves and as their playing skill develops. Please contact me for a trial session to see whether your child would be interested in learning and studying chess.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.

Chess

I taught myself chess in 3rd grade and have a love for this amazing game. Pursuant to this passion, I formed a chess club at our high school and competed against other schools as first board. I have competed in tournaments in the past and was the Long Island University - C.W. Post chess champion one year. I have studied chess theory and am familiar with advanced concepts and strategies. Finally, teaching young children chess is very rewarding, having taught my own two young boys, and I look forward to teaching others.
