Bio

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...

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.

Great teacher

Tom is very enthusiastic about chess and has a clear knowledge of the deeper intricacies of the game. Our lesson was very educational and eye opening. I could not be happier with the experience and definitely recommend for anyone who is seeking to improve their chess.
