I began teaching chess when I was in 5th grade, and have since taught chess to hundreds of students. I am a USCF National Master, though I no longer play in chess tournaments. From November 2017 until June 2018 I taught classes for Chess Wizards in the Seattle area.

USCF rating: 2200 highest bullet rating: 2519 highest blitz rating: 2454

Chess lessons usually consist of analyzing the student's games, discussing various aspects of the game (openings, endgames, studying historical chess games), homework after each lesson, and so forth. I can also play chess games with a student, followed by analysis of those games.
