About Tom

I am comfortable working with students from beginner up to class A. I am semi-retired and actively teach chess at the Tacoma Chess Club. I originated our lecture program which is a summer program.

I live in Fircrest and am willing to meet up within a 5 - 10 mile radius. I am happy to come to your location. I am an officer of the Tacoma Chess Club, and I am the Tacoma City Champion for 2015. I no longer compete nationally, but did achieve a master rating of 2200+. I have placed in the top 3 for the club championship, Pierce County championship and Tacoma City championship every year since moving here in 2012. In the past year, I have an even record competing in events against expert and master rated opponents. My schedule is very flexible.

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 am currently the lead chess instructor for the Tacoma chess club. I am also the Pierce County chess champion and the Tacoma City champion. My highest rating achieved was Master and I have been playing and teaching chess for many years.
