  • All times are Pacific time zone.
  • This weekly schedule is only for long-term private classes. Each student has a time slot for 1, 1.5 or 2 hours, with longer lessons reserved for advanced classes.
  • As an established master, I prefer to teach higher rated and older students (1000+ USCF and age 10+). I have considerable experience working with teenagers rated 1600-1900.
  • For health reasons, I can only accept up to 8 students, with a limit of 2 on any day.
  • I am available from 1:00 to 10:00 on most days, with exceptions for occasional appointments or other events.
  • A window of 1.5 hours is reserved each weekday for dinner and family.
  • Most classes begin after 3:00, when students return from school. Home schooled children and those from the Eastern or Central time zones should ask for earlier time slots.
  • I frown on weekend time slots because of the frequency of conflicts (both chess and non-chess events). However, I may be available for evening sessions on quiet weekends.
  • I expect students to be punctual. As a general rule, students should plan to log into ICC and Skype at least five (5) minutes early. Please say hello when you are ready. (tell fpawn hello, are you ready?)
  • If you cannot attend, please let me know. As a courtesy, 24 hours notice is appreciated. However, late notice is much better than none at all. I try to follow the same courtesy.
  • This schedule may change due to non-chess commitments of students. The biggest changes often come at the start and end of summer vacation and in January. Your flexibility is appreciated.
