Great Coach and Instructor
Review by usvichess
Voja is a very good coach, my son has a lesson with him once a week and I think his play is improving a lot. The chess club I started also uses Voja as our coach every week. We is very good with all the students. I would highly recommend Voja. (Posted on August 30, 2016)

Voja's the best!
Review by Fianchettoed
As an older player coming back after a long time away from the game, I needed help to regain my old form. Voja has given me that help. He didn't do it by having start all over or change openings. He helped me by building on what I do know and improving on that knowledge. Now I not only feel that I am playing closer to my old playing strength but there might be a chance I can move forward.
He's the best. (Posted on July 3, 2016)
Deep chess understanding
Review by Smerdjakov
I have been training with Voja for years now and I can sincerely recommend him to any fellow lover of the game. I believe not many trainers could match his organised and structured approach, his approachability and friendliness. But most importantly, I am confident even fewer trainers have his ability in passing on his long term experience and deep chess understanding. I have read tens of books and listened to several trainers, but none have taught me to assess a position, a piece Exchange, a strategical idea, as Voja has. (Posted on June 27, 2016)

I have found the coach who understands me from a psychological point of view . That is very important ,because Voja then knows how to help each student to the best of his ability ! I have no pressure of any kind during his lessons :) I have a great time every time I take a lesson . I wish He was my coach 10 years ago :) . I highly recommend him to be your coach, because he is very out going, very honest, and he makes lessons FUN to LEARN !! At 47 years old, I need to laugh more :) And he helps me stay positive and focused on my goal !! (Posted on May 29, 2016)

I have Voja as my teacher for 4 years now. He has helped me improve my chess and become a strong chess player. He is a great teacher and I will continue to learn from him until I become a chess master. (Posted on December 21, 2015)
Voja is a fantastic teacher
Review by TiredDad
Voja coaches my daughter once a week and myself once a month. He is a fantastic coach, always positive and supportive and has really enthused her and taught her a mountain. I pick up loads in her lessons too. I have taught for many years and met hundreds of teachers. Voja is easily one of the best teachers I have come across in any discipline, I cannot recommend him highly enough, he is brilliant. Thankyou Voja. (Posted on November 22, 2015)
Great guy, Better Teacher
Review by SoxGambit
Voja is a great teacher who consistently follows up with his students with homework and guides them even in between lessons.
He always sends the games he promises during the lesson and seems to be very well organized. He will guide the lesson but allow you to dictate what he teaches that day.
He is affordable and the best value in my opinion having tried other teachers in the past.
He is willing to answer questions even mid-week between lessons if you have them and communicates with his students whenever they are in need.
On top of all that, he is an incredibly friendly person. Approachable, amiable, and seems genuinely interested in the well-being of his students' chess success.
You should have no reservations about setting up a lesson with Voja when searching for some coaching. (Posted on September 30, 2015)
Great Teacher, knowledgable, friendly, and very dependable.
Review by NUANCE
Voja has been a strong influence for my groups. I am a chess program coordinator, coach, and teacher for middle school. We skype with him as much as possible. He fills every lesson time with interesting puzzles and makes sure everyone is thinking about answers. THANK YOU, VOJA! (Posted on May 6, 2015)
