About This Class

Ever wished you were a strong chess player? In this course we will explore chess in depth covering topics that will elevate your game from average to very strong.

In my previous course, we covered some basic ideas such as common openings, simple tactics, and basic strategy. In "Learn to Play Chess Like a Master" we will build on those ideas using both traditional still chess positions as well as new cutting edge software so students can easily follow along while I go through positions and analyze the game.

I have gone from weak chess player to experience tournament player by studying with chess Grandmasters in Vietnam for over 5 years so I understand the problems that the average chess player has in improving at the game and what holds you back from getting the kind of results you want.

Join my advanced chess course, and bring your game to the next level!

Knowledge is Power!

My courses are designed based on my many years as a teacher and student of education and business. I hold a master's degree in curriculum and instruction and have been designing curricula for over a decade.

The business, language, and chess courses that I have built are a reflection of this experience and dedication to education. My goal is to reach as many people as possible with my courses, which is why I have chosen the internet as my ideal mode of delivery.

The following is a little more about my expertise and background. I was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. I attended the University of Idaho where I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 2004. After a few years in the work force as an account manager I moved to Vietnam where I lived for over 5 years.

While in Vietnam I taught English as a second language for almost 2 years to students of all ages and backgrounds. For the 3 final years that I lived there I opened and ran a sports training company called Saigon Sports Academy. We coached sports such as soccer, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. My positions while at the company included Director of Strategic Initiatives as well as Director of the Chess Program.

While living in Vietnam I became fluent in the Vietnamese language and developed a deep love for teaching and traveling internationally. I then came back in the United States to work on a masters degree in education so that I would be an even more effective teacher in the future. It is my wish to be a positive force for education in the world, and to inspire my current and future students to be the best that they can be in whatever they do.

I am now a full time real estate investor and online entrepreneur specializing in flipping properties, showing others how to do the same, and having a great time doing it!
