A tournament chess player with FIDE rating 1827 gives chess classes online. 18 years of tournament playing experience.

Methodology

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.

Experience

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.

Dr Manasa being my daughter, know her since birth!
She is a good learner and good teacher.
In academics she excelled in her graduations and signed off with a PhD in Chemistry. Now working as a research scientist in Bengaluru, India.
Manasa is a good FIDE rated chess player / coach with many state & national chess laurels in her name. She even represented India at the Asian Youth Chess Championships!
I am sure Manasa can ignite chess passion in many young minds.

P
Prashanth

Manasa has a passion towards teaching, especially teaching chess. She is looking for opportunities to pursue this passion and I can say that she is the best chess player I have know who has won many laurels to her state and country.
Research took her into a different path but her playing strength and concepts in chess are as clear as how they were before. You must try her tutoring, you will start loving chess!
