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.
