WGM Kateryna Areshchenko
- Product Review (submitted on January 24, 2017):
- I cannot think of one word to sum up the teaching abilities of Kateryna. It's not easy learning chess as an adult and I would have probably hung it up and moved on to my other hobbies if it were not for her. I have a one year old a demanding job and live in a complete different time zone than her and she was more than accommodating to all those issues. After the first lesson I learned to put myself out there and ask the dumb questions, she was so objective in answering them and moving on, I quickly learned to not feel shameful at all. I was with her once a week for 3 months, I went from chess hack to right around a 1500 rating. If you are lucky her cat may pop in an out during the lesson :) If you are an animal lover like myself than you will have a laugh. Sadly I had to stop taking lessons for the time being due to a move and that is the only reason.
