European IM and experienced trainer, one of the most active on ICC. Taking students rated anywhere from 1200 to 2200. I believe that the key to improvement in chess is to focus on learning how to think properly. Most people get stuck because they only accumulate knowledge without actually developing a proper thought process. My lessons are one on one, customized to meet the student's needs. Opening study, planning, calculation, typical endgames, answering questions, going through games - I do it all. $30/hour or even better $50/2 consecutive hrs.

Attention – potential students, contact me (lazypawn@gmail.com) before making any payment! Information I need – your age, rating, chess books/software you own, desired lesson times, chess goals.

If you really want to improve! Review by micky1943
Rating
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)

Another excellent lesson Review by micky1943

Dan is extremely knowledgeable, but the thing that really makes his lessons worthwhile is the effort he puts into his lessons. He makes a real effort to make sure you understand the points that he is making. There's is no magic formula for chess improvement, but these lessons help (Posted on February 25, 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)

Terrific Coach Review by zachowland
Rating
I have been taking lessons with Dan for about 7 months. During that time, I've gone from struggling in the 1000-1100 range to having multiple 1800+ performance ratings. He helped me to correctly identify my key weaknesses and provided recommendations and information on how to efficiently address them, including fixing my flawed thinking process as well as my method for practicing tactics. He does not sugar-coat feedback, but is patient when working to solve problems. If you are serious about wanting to improve and are willing to put in the work, you will be hard pressed to find a better coach to help you. (Posted on August 9, 2017)

IM Dan Review by rfollas

Teaches more than books ever could. Review by nathanpillay
Rating
As an intermediate player (mid 1800 rating on ICC) I have learned an immense amount from Mr Vasiesiu in spite of only having taken a few lessons thus far. His emphasis on fixing one's thought process is proving far more beneficial than mindlessly chipping away at theory for hours. Highly recommended. (Posted on March 13, 2017)
