Coach Dean is a remarkable coach with years and years of experience in the Scholastic Chess scene. He worked with my son leading up to the national scholastic championships and my son was extremely well prepared, ultimately finishing as a national co-champion. Coach Dean has a unique teaching style blending chess learning and storytelling to keep my son interested and engaged. I can't imagine that there's a better coach out there to bring scholastic players from good to great. Thank you Coach Dean!!!
