About Vanita

I am a current student at Delaware County Community college and currently have two chess students.

My USCF rating is 1750 and my FIDE rating is around 1820. I won a chess scholarship for college in 2011 at Texas Tech. I was a part of the top chess team in the world my freshman year under the supervision of Grandmaster Susan Polgar. I compete in tournaments around America and just finished a tournament called The World Open in DC. I tied for 4th place in the U1800 section. I am well known in the chess world and plenty of stories about my chess career are online. I will be featured in the August edition of "Chess Life Magazine."

I enjoy coaching and playing professional chess. Having the chance to see my students succeed and knowing I played a part in their development is what motivates me not only in coaching but also in school.

I have had 5 years of experience coaching, 10 years of experience playing professional chess, and received a chess scholarship to college.

Learning chess shouldn't be boring. You or your child should have fun while learning. I can help!
