Hello! My name is Lauren Goodkind and I am nationally ranked and rated USCF 1888 and have been teaching chess privately for the last two years in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Discover an easy way to become a confident chess player!

For the motivated and beginner chess player of all ages who loves chess but is struggling to win a chess game or just wants to simply get better.

…Because developing your chess skills doesn’t have to feel challenging and frustrating.

Here are some of the results we’ll build together:
-Learn winning opening, middle and endgame strategies, including basic and advanced checkmates.
-Recognize tactics (specific patterns in the position) and make the winning move combination!
-Develop a winning thinking method to win more chess games!
-If desired, become a USCF (United States Chess Federation) member (if you are already not a member) and play in rated chess tournaments and know how to record your moves and know how to play with the clock!
Make your chess dream come true! The best way to get started is to contact me about private chess lessons: goodkindlauren@yahoo.com

I look forward to hearing from you!
