Joshua is a great guy. Took the time to give me a lesson last minute. Will work with him in the near future again!

Josh is an absolutely excellent coach who makes chess exciting to learn. He has a knack for breaking down complex ideas into concepts that are easy to understand and can be practically applied to your game. His coaching has helped me increase my rating by 200 points in only 2 months. I would highly recommend!


LiChess Player

Mr Christie is a very friendly and honest master of chess. After studying with him for several weeks, my blitz rating increased from 1500+ to 1700+. He has a very high FIDE rating and his hourly rate is quite reasonable. I would strongly recommend him.
