"I am a part of Ukrainian, American and FIDE Chess Federations. I already took part in a few local tournaments where I presented myself really good! I am public schools contactor. It allows me to work with kids and teach them chess. One of my students recently won a tournament and got a trophy and money prize. I love to do chess, and if you want to become a great chess player-you came to the right place!Besides my professional chess carrier,chess improved my logical thinking,my math abilities and my brain in general. I have one of my students who is 70 years old and he does chess to keep his brain fresh!I love to teach other people how to play this great game. I have a lot of experience and I would love to share it. I am No. 27 in TOP 100 U.S. Chess players in age of 18 years. In 2016, I've achieved the title of National Master."
