We found out Yiyang loves chess during his second grade enrichment chess class and we’ve been fortunate to find Ryan to help him. Yiyang has attended private lessons with Ryan since Dec, 2019. At that time, his rating was just 800. After 5+ months, his rating has increased to 1100+. More importantly, we’re glad to see Yiyang has become so confident and calm during the chess tournaments.
Ryan provided all the needed guidance to Yiyang, including books to read, tournaments to attend and games to play. He closely tracks Yiyang’s progress and adjusts the learning plan accordingly. He also tries all the ways to encourage Yiyang to practice and keep making progress.
During one of the tournaments, Yiyang won 5 of 5 rounds and got 1st place in second grade.
After the tournament, the first thing Yiyang thought of is to share this good news with Ryan. I think this is the best proof that Ryan is not only the teacher for him but also his best friend. Really appreciate the help and support Ryan gives to Yiyang.

If your chess.com rapid rating is above 1400 (or lichess rapid/classical rating of >1650) congratulations! You fall into the category of advanced! There’s a couple ways I can help: (a) a short term package of lessons designed to go over a self study plan, or (b) a weekly study of a specific area of the game such as attacking chess, positional play, or endgame expertise.
