About Leonard

Trained as a scientist, I am semi-retired. I have been teaching private, small group, and larger chess classes for more than 10 years. Also regularly direct chess tournaments in Houston, Katy and Cypress. Have been mentoring after school chess classes and teams. Lessons include take home challenges with rewards, online resources, online practice sites.

Like to make lessons fun whether it is chess or other basic subjects.

Learning chess is learning many life values. Chess teaches discipline, focus, planning, social interaction, strategical thinking, spacial awareness, value judgement, timing, creative thinking, problem solving, numerical abilities and much more.

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 have been a teacher and private chess tutor for ten years. I offer classroom instruction, private lessons, supplies, and theme birthday parties. I also have been a chess tournament director for eight years. I have regular chess tournaments in Katy, Houston, and Cypress.

Great Chess Lesson

Leonard was great! Both of my kids, 12 and 9 yo, are new to chess. They had their first chess lesson from Leonard and can't wait to have more. He was funny, patient and very experienced.
