Interactive Chess Lessons
Open a new perspective and change the way you view the game of chess. While most of my students are competitive players, I pride myself in that I met and shared my knowledge and passion with people coming from all sorts of backgrounds. All my students enjoy the mental arousal and the exclusive competitiveness that comes when you are marching your army against an opponent on the chess board.
A game of strategy, a game of will, and most importantly a battle of ideas between two brilliant minds. Come into my world!
