About Jason

Hello!
I am a self-taught chess player with more than 20 years of experience.

I have been a scholastic chess coach for more than 6 years with our club containing children from as young as 5 up to 18.

I play recreational chess online and have played more than 60,000 total games.

My approach to teaching chess is to help the student understand how the pieces work, where on the board they are most effective, and how to analyse a game after it has been played in order to improve play.

I DO NOT require rote memorization of openings and their names. I believe through a thorough understanding of how the pieces work and general theory, a player can successfully navigate any opening presented to them.

I do expect chess to be played/practiced outside of lesson to increase skills, though it is not required.

I have many years experience working with children. I am in the Top 100 rated chess players in WI.
