Teaching experience

Over the past four years, I have gained extensive teaching experience, having taught over 75 students from various countries around the world. The majority of my students have come from India, Singapore, the USA, the UK, and Qatar.

Having taught students from different parts of the world, I have developed a teaching approach that is effective and tailored to each student's individual needs. Through my experience, I have gained a deep understanding of the diverse learning styles and cultural differences that impact my students' learning, and have learned to adapt my teaching style accordingly.

Other experiences

Other than chess I have helped various chess academies and chess coaches to grow their online presence through organic marketing.
