I was a Court Interpreter in London. I am fluent in English as my mother is English despite being brought up in Cyprus. I have also taught English at a University. I have set up a Chess Club and have been teaching chess for about 7 years. I mainly teach one-to-one and can teach up to 2000 elo.
Perfect! Very helpful and encouraging tuition.

George (Lisa's son) is very talented and can become a great chess player in the future.
Perfect! So far, I had 2 lessons with Cengiz and I am planning to have 2 lessons per week for the foreseeable future as he is an excellent chess player who has an academic approach to it. He is very articulate and clear as you can see from his YouTube videos which is very helpful for a student like myself. In addition to that, Cengiz did a great deal of prep work before both lessons we had which shows his professional attitude and willingness to go the extra mile for his students.
I had a very enjoyable lesson with Paulius and he wants to develop his playing strength. He is willing to study in order to reach his target.

Andy is eager to learn and develop instead of just focusing on getting short-term results at chess.
Cengiz is a very reliable coach and an excellent communicator with great position understanding. Cengiz is patient and well researched, extremely pationate about the game. He draws knowledge from his job as a translator and university tutor and can communicate effectively in a variety of different languages.
He has a very solid style - hope it rubs off on your game like it did mine.
Cengiz is very professional and knowledgeable coach. I first got acquainted with him when I visited his chess school in Kyrenia whilst being on holiday there. I first observed him whilst he was teaching kids. He explained the Petrov defence to them. I am no stranger to Petrov defence but I was really impressed by the depth of Cengiz’s knowledge and realised how little I knew in comparison to him. Cengiz delivered his lecture in a very measures way and calibrated his deliver in a very comprehensible manner. He gave regular examples from chess openings to corroborate his points. One pleasant surprise for was the description of the Shepherd’s mate in Turkish. Within a short space of time I learned a lot from Cengiz on Petrov defence and linguistic beauty of the turkish language. As a keen chess player and father of two kids I can say with confidence that I would be delighted if Cengiz was the tutor of my kids. Cengiz is a rare type of chess tutor from whom one can learn not only good chess but also how to be a decent human being.
I’ve known Cengiz for over 10 years. We’ve played for the North Circular Chess League and have won it numerous times. He is very determined, professional and a great chess tutor! Jordan
