    As a beginner with some experience, the Beginner course is a great introduction to chess! Nikola presents the basics in a clear, simple understanding and does a great job of setting a relaxed and focused pace for learning. His examples and work are shown in a step-by-step visual format and he has crafted an effective way to teach that makes learning fun and engaging.
    This course took me 3 hours to complete. Before this course I was having trouble with castling and understanding some basic fundamentals of how the pieces interact. I can confidently say this course has given me exactly what I needed to strengthen my game and move forward with my passion for chess.

    Nikola was the first coach I had in the master years of my playing career. He inspired me with his creativity and joy for the game. He taught me the importance of playing serious openings, and what it meant to show professionalism in chess. He is a very caring coach who knows how to have a good laugh, but also take the necessary steps when it comes to constructive criticism. I’m now an IM with 2 GM norms making my own pursuit of the GM title, and I am still very grateful for the confidence Nikola was able to instill in my play.

    I know Nikola for 10+years and I always admired his professionalism and methodical based approach to chess and detailed preparation for each game. While we were exchanging ideas before, it only recently struck me that he would be a great fit for my team, both personally and chess wise. He was a crucial part of my successful quest in winning the 4th national chess title.

    I’ve been doing lessons with Nikola for over a year and his style of coaching continues to challenge me and make me a better player. Between his training tools and breadth of chess knowledge, I’ve been thoroughly pleased with the coaching I’ve received. He is flexible and understanding and can be both instructional and motivational when you need. Im grateful to have met Nikola and continue to be learning chess with him!
