His many years of experience in the chess world allows him to guide students to increase the comfort level, understand the principles of chess and how of how to apply strategies from the chess board to real life.

    Jeremiah was so patient and sweet with my very shy teenager who knew nothing about chess and after only a few lessons already felt like he had a decent grasp on the basics and is so excited to go again.

  • Irie Charcot

    Class has been very interesting, informative and fun. Coach Jeremiah was very detailed oriented and attentive. I really enjoyed it and look forward to get better and better in playing chess.

    Jeremiah is an amazing chess teacher. He teaches chess to my 10 year old son and the not only teaches the game but imparts discipline and focus. Highly recommended.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I assess, as quickly as possible, what the student's level and needs are and customize a program from there.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been teaching students of all ages and experience levels for 20 years. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Private Lessons are $45 for 30 minutes or $75 for 1 hour.  Group lessons are $35 for walk-ins and $100 for a 4 pack. 

How did you get started teaching?

A close friend from my elementary school chess team recommended me for a job to teach after-school chess 20 years ago.  Dozens of schools and thousands of years later -- the rest is history. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Every age range from preschool to seniors.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm fond of Praggnanandhaa's recent win of over Carlsen.  I love Carlsen, but the youth movement in chess is thrilling.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure your instructor is connected with you personally and note teaching by rote. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Just dive in.  The important questions will be apparent through training.
