My name is Erik Kislik. I am a 30-year-old International Master from California. My peak USCF rating is 2500 and my peak FIDE rating is 2432. My story in chess is a little bit unusual because of its rarity. I was unrated at age 20 and ended up becoming an International Master within just 3 years. During that time, I was studying chess very seriously with an organized and methodical training schedule. A lot of the insights and conclusions I came to from improving so rapidly are fundamental aspects of my chess philosophy and teaching approach. Currently, I am the only coach that is the full-time trainer of 3 players rated approximately 2650 FIDE and above. Among other players, I coach the champions of Spain, Iceland, and Singapore. In 2017, I won Analysis of the Year from the Chess Journalists of America, and in 2016 and 2017, I reached the number one spot on the ICC teachers' list for multiple months. My book Applying Logic in Chess is currently (June 2018) ranked #1 on Amazon for new chess releases, detailing my full approach to thinking about every aspect of the game and improving as rapidly as possible. Send me an email (imerikkislik@gmail.com)with your thoughts or concerns about chess improvement even if you are unsure if you want lessons.

Great Coach Review by seikster
Rating
I’ve worked with two other coaches in the past (one GM and one IM) and I have to say that Erik is the most skilled teacher. He answers questions over Skype outside of lessons, will analyze your games before lessons and always come informed on the opening (even if he has to do a little research on his own), and his ability to break down positions into simple concepts is something I haven’t seen ANY other titled player do.

I’ve been working with him for about two months now and I feel like I hear his voice in my ear when I play chess now. I could not recommend this teacher any more. If you’re going to spend money on a coach, spend it on Kislik. (Posted on August 26, 2018)

Fantastic Coach! Review by atiroaoj

Thoughtful, detailed and always open. Fountain of knowledge.

As a mature student, I don't take fools kind and since I started with Erik there hasn't been anything I haven't been happy with.

Highly recommended! (Posted on January 24, 2017)

GREAT Coach Review by Adolinsk

You won't find a better coach! He is always looking for ways to improve my game and is adept at communicating difficult tactics in language that a beginner can understand, even though he has a strong following of highly rated players as well. You can't go wrong working with Erik! (Posted on June 9, 2016)
