About me

A simple guy! I am 32 and I live in Durham, NC. Giving lessons in person and online. Chess has become my passion again: teaching, playing, writing! I was a PhD student and I love statistics, data science, and science in general. I love to talk and discuss cognitive science.

Playing experience

25 years of playing. 20 years playing in world youth and junior. Won Washington International in 2016 and Washington congress 2017. My best results in the past couple of years.

Teaching experience

I have been teaching chess since 2003. FIDE Trainer since 2011. I have trained 3 IMs 2 WGMs and many players ranged from 1200-2400

Middlegame, evaluation and strategizing.

Teaching methodology

I am a fan of Jacob Aagard and his method. Endgame is almost a must in my classes ( I generate my own). I have a huge emphasize on Smyslov, Dvortsky , and Carsten Muller's books.
