|Mark Abercrombieemail@example.com||Good chess players don't always make the best chess teachers. I am not the greatest player (rated around 1500 USCF) but I AM a licensed teacher in Utah (which means the state does a background check on me every 5 years). This means that I regularly plan lessons and organize how to present my curriculum in a meaningful, memorable, and fun way. I have planned a curriculum of how chess should be taught which you won't find anywhere else. My lessons are intended for absolute beginners up to players around my own strength.|
