My teaching will be more of an interactive and brainstorming approach. Individuals who wish to take my class can range from school kids to veteran level as I am comfortable with all age groups. E-materials and standard book references will be used wherever necessary. I believe in a practical approach and hence teaching will be made fun and less of theory so that student stays engaged. All my tutoring sessions will be live for better one-to-one interactions with the student(s).
Being a fellow in Science field, I will try to link Science with chess so that students get interested in Science as well.
I am a Scientist by Profession. Have a PhD and MSc degree in Chemistry. Playing chess since my school days has helped me immensely in my professional career. Sadly, I could not convert my passion into a profession, but through my tutoring, I would like to instil confidence and passion in others to take this game seriously as a career option.
Fee will be reduced for group classes or if more than one student wish to take class together.
