A BIT ABOUT DF_KNIGHTS
With Values and Leadership
As a father of two amazing boys, I decided to volunteer at their schools to be closer to them. That was the start of my chess journey and volunteering helped me to understand how to teach children. Because of this, I became a well-known chess instructor, permitting me to teach hundreds of students at several public and private schools within and outside of San Francisco, CA. Since 2000, I brought a depth of teaching experience and knowledge to those who are eager to expand their minds, talents, and skills. Sometimes all it takes to understand a concept is a considerate instructor who knows how to teach at your pace. Contact me to see how I can help you to become a much stronger and more confident chess player.
As a top chess instructor, I’ve provided the tools and guidance needed to help all of my students excel. Chess can be challenging and intimidating for many students. One of the many good things about a group lesson is that students can help each other in their journey through chess. Take advantage of the vast professional experience I bring.
