About John T.

I am a High School Chess Team Sponsor. I have twelve years of teaching experience as an English teacher in public school education. The last seven years have been dedicated to the cultivation of scholastic chess teams at middle and high school grades.

As a chess coach, I have sponsored teams of students to over a dozen United States Chess Federation scholastic tournaments. A few of these former team members have attained college scholarship money for chess at tournaments, individual and team trophies.

Scholastic chess has taken root in the East Texas area thanks to the Spring Hill, Pine Tree and Longview ISD's inclusion of UIL Chess Puzzle Solving as an event for second through eighth grade students.

I tutor children in preparation for UIL Chess Puzzle Solving. My fee includes both digital and hard copy materials.

My wife and I are public school educators. We have two daughters.

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 high school and middle school scholastic chess team coach for the last seven years. I have sponsored public school district chess teams at over a dozen USCF rated tournaments.

I have also coordinated an inner-city chess tournament with over 108 participants.

I am also an active United States Chess Federation member.
