A rigorous, dedicated teacher Review by micky1943
Rating
Dan is extremely knowledgeable, but what is more important is that he makes a real effort to understand your specific weaknesses and misconceptions. He doesn't have a "one size fits all" approach. (Posted on April 5, 2020)

Simply the best coach Review by SmartIcecream
Rating
My daughter has taken the class for over 19 months. Dan totally brings her chess to the next level with his solid approach. Each class starts with deep game analysis, move by move based. All the missed chances from both sides in the opening., Middle game and endgame are explained not only with variations but also in the crystally clear human understandable ideas, which can be easily digested by student and replicated in the future games. From his many years of teaching experiences, Dan has prepare a systematic course, covering major attacking themes, middle game and endgame strategy endgame . Many questions are asked during class, and most of them are simply 20% above the students capabilities, requiring deep thinking and calculation. This significantly improves the student overall chess skills, reflected in their own OTB games. Moreover , his English is at native speaker level. Strongly recommended. (Posted on March 15, 2020)

Dan is very good at putting his finger on those flaws in your chess thinking that cause you to make the same kind of mistakes over and over again and keep you from really improving. If you are willing to do the work, you will improve! (Posted on June 26, 2019)

For older adults, real chess improvement is hard! And a coach who can put his finger on your ingrained thinking errors and help you fix them is invaluable. Dan does a great job of identifying my weaknesses and helping me figure out how to fix them (Posted on May 28, 2019)

One of the Best Review by Lamarque
Rating
I first took lessons seriously with Dan in 2005. Already at that point he was the highest reviewed chess coaches on the ICC.

Dan stands out from other coaches for a number of reasons:

1. Dan has a very well prepared teaching agenda, fine-tuned over thousands of hours of lessons with over 100 students.
2. Unlike many other coaches, teaching is clearly more than simply an income supplement for Dan. He approaches improving his students with the same drive as he approaches the game itself. He takes the time between lessons to look over students' games and follow their activities on the ICC with a genuinely drive to see them succeed.

The lessons are difficult, but catered carefully to the ability of the student. He has a particular talent for giving students the right amount of time and the right clues if necessary to push them to solve tactics and find correct plans. This is a fine balance. Some teachers give away answer immediately without the student really pushing themselves. Others let them suffer in silence for the duration of the lesson. Dan has perfected the middle ground.

I owe a lot of my passion for the game to early lessons with this coach, and could not recommend him more highly. (Posted on February 23, 2018)
