It’s been 8 months since we started private lessons with Coach Levon. Alex is learning different openings and his overall strategy and understanding of the game have increased a lot. His rating went from 700 to 1400. angeleno Chess for Schools is doing a great job and Alex is very happy there.”

Lev is not just a fantastic coach — he is an excellent mentor.  With his guidance my rating climbed from ~1400 to 2200, and I won several scholastic state titles along the way.  By letting me lecture at his chess camp, Lev helped me become a better communicator, and our sessions at the board, poring over puzzles and games, gave me a passion for lifelong learning.
