I have coached students in the rating range of 1000-2400. My successful students on average have gained 250+ rating points within two years of training.

I offer online chess lessons through a combination of Skype and, and for people who are looking for in-person classes in Bangalore, they can visit my place(Kaikondrahalli) for training sessions.

My coaching philosophy
-Develop a highly customized coaching plan based on the strengths and weaknesses of the student.
-Analyze the games of the students in detail, and make them understand better about their own game.
-Focus primarily on the middlegame and endgame.
-Limit time spent on working on openings.
-Help the student develop a life long passion for the game.

My coaching philosophy is heavily influenced by the various coaches whom I have trained with like GM Susan Polgar, GM R.B.Ramesh, GM Aleksander Goloshchapov, GM Yasser Seirawan, GM Elizbar Ubilava, GM Alexander Goldin, GM Ronen Har-Zvi etc.

I am currently accepting new students, and you can get additional details of my coaching lessons by emailing me at, or by interacting using the chatbox.
