Educational Psychologist

I am working with students who are highly committed to the game and wish to work for achieving results.

A potential student must be serious and motivated to learn. What I offer on my end is a coherent system for advancing that makes good decisions seem easy.

I am teaching chess through simplifications and narratives. That works pretty well at both beginner levels and tournament level students 1500-2000.

My students are to be found among the winners at Florida State championships, a few have reached to top 3 at the Nationals, and one is representing US at the Youth World Championship in Spain later this year.

I am still accepting new students (July 2018). Email me if you are interested: jen@orlandochesshouse.com
 

Fee: $75/hour
Full day session (5 hours): $200

Face-to-face or online. Discounts for block lessons and group lessons are available.
